1. Hands on training
2. No damage deposit is required
At Chicago Segway Tour, we train you on the spot, one by one, step by step without a training video. We can have a group well informed and experienced through our training drills in less than half an hour.
Other companies have you sit through a one hour training video with no hands on training. There is no way you will feel confident riding a Segway by only watching a video.
3. The latest Segway models
Other Segway tour companies require several hundred dollars in advance to secure a deposit for unforseen damages. Unfortunately they are hoping you break something and charge you double or triple of the actual damage amount.
We at Chicago Segway Tour care about your safety and focus on you having fun, not on ripping you off.
4. Lowest tour prices with more value
Other Segway Tour companies offer older, depreciated Segway models, and price their tours much much higher. The first generation segway models are smaller, not so fast, and not so responsive
Our fleet is 100% comprised of the latest Segway models, i2 and x2, which are much more easier and enjoyable to ride.
5. Rain Checks
We offer more for less with the best prices in town.
6. Boutique tour operation
Other Segway tour companies do not allow you to cancel/reschedule your reservation due to an emergency or inhospitable weather conditions. They encourage you to ride in the rain without giving you the option to reschedule. This way you have to ride, otherwise you lose your money.
We at Chicago Segway Tour do not force you to do a Segway Tour in the rain because: it is not safe, you can catch a cold, your pictures will not come out right, you will have an uncomfortable ride and experience.
We will issue you a voucher / Rain Check which has no expiration date and you can reschedule whenever you can. We do not run tours when it is raining.
7. Copying is a form of flattery
Our small and personable touch makes us much more dynamic than the larger tour operation allowing us to offer a better price and attention to all our customers.
8. An array of different segway colors
Our competitors are always playing catch up with us, releasing their version of a feature that we already offer.
We take pride in being the industry leader and seek to raise the bar with new features every year.
9. Two pure hours of Segway riding
We offer a wide variety of Segway colors for you to choose from. Mix and match with your attire, or choose a color to stick out from the crowd.
Our competitors offer the basic Segways. With us you will not be caught dead all riding the same colored Segways.
10. Small groups for safety and personal attention
Some Segway tour companies supposedly offer three hours of touring. You waste one hour watching the training video, and they make so many stops during the tour for drinks, snacks or restroom breaks that time flies by without you even knowing it.
That time could have been better spent enjoying the city view and wheels of your Segway.
11. Generous discounts for repeat riders
We offer small group tours for safety reasons and greater personal attention. We do not force you to join a 30 person group just for you to take part in a Segway tour.
12. Safety training bars
Chicago Segway Tour is the ONLY company that offers better prices for repeat riders every time that your are coming back to tour with us.
13. More Segway tour routes to choose from
We are the ONLY company that offers the safety training bars on the Segways to quickly walk you through the training drills and orientation.
You will be up and riding much quicker and confident with our training sessions.
14. Comfort mats available
We offer more Segway tour routes than any other of our competitors by far.
15. Kick stands are installed on our Segways
We are the ONLY company that offers the comfort mats, to ease any stiff legs or tired feet for a more pleasurable ride.
16. Lights and tailights for the evening tours
We are the ONLY company that offer kickstands for your Segways, so you do not need to bend every time to pick up or park your Segway.
17. Flexible and private Segway tours
That's right, lights and tailights on our Segways for the evening tours. Some of our competitors do not offer this feature.
+1 extra reason why we are better than any other Segway tour company
We offer very flexible, personable and private sections tours.
At Chicago Segway Tour we offer the latest in gliding technology. Most riders request the all terrain x2 Segway PT model as it has a higher ground clearance, and handles very well steep hills, trails, and errant rocks won't impede your ride. There is greater absorption, and bounce when gliding over the unevenness of some trails, but never the less your riding experience on an x2 will provide you with hours of fun and an unforgettable seamless glide.
Our fleet is comprised of both i2 and x2 models. Because x2’s are more expensive to stock and other Segway touring companies don’t offer them,you can ride one on our tours. Your glide is the same price as the i2, and that's a savings in itself.
