This two-hour glide will cover the same route as our expanded three-hour Segway tours of Chicago, but will focus more on the experience of riding Segways through our beautiful parks and less on the history and quirky facts about our hometown.
Tour breaks will be shortened to accommodate the two-hour time limit, so guests looking for a more leisurely experience should strongly consider our three-hour Segway tour options at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The 6pm Two Hour Glide is the perfect tour to see the city as the sun sets. This tour is perfect for the traveler or local that wants to try riding a Segway, but is constrained by a tight schedule.
Reservations are required for this tour. All walk-in customers will be served based on guide availability.
Chicago Two Hour Segway Glide Tour Highlights
The Field Museum
The Field Museum was founded to house the biological and anthropological collections assembled for the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893. The Field is the current home to Sue the famous T. Rex and the Lions of Tsavo as well as an extensive anthropological collection.
The Adler was the first planetarium built in the Western hemisphere and contains astronomical artifacts and instruments dating back to 12th century Persia. Provides one of the best panoramic views of Chicago's fabulous skyline!
This centerpiece of our tour is 319 acres of beautifully manicured green space, gardens and public sculptures. Chicago's "front yard" includes Buckingham Fountain as its central focal point. Grant Park is also home to Butler Field which hosts The Blues Fest, Jazz Fest and Lollapalooza annually.
Just a short walk from our office is Chicago's newest gem, featuring the Pritzker Pavillion, the cascading waters of the Crown Fountain towers and the famous Cloud Gate sculpture affectionately nicknamed "The Bean" by locals and visitors alike.
Shedd Aquarium and Oceanarium
Opened to the public in December 1929, at the time it was the world's largest inland aquarium. One of the first animals to arrive is currently its oldest resident: Grandad, an African Lungfish acquired in 1933.
Soldier Field is the current home to the Chicago Bears who moved in 1970 from their original home at Wrigley Field. Originally built in 1924 as a dedication to fallen war veterans, Soldier Field underwent a $600 million renovation in 2003 and is now a staple of Chicago's magnificent skyline.
