Chicago Segway Tour operates all year long, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
We have tours in session four times a day: morning, noon, afternoon, evening.
We have a wide selection of different tours; our Lakefront and Northern Adventure Tours run on a daily basis. We also offer a Glide @ Night every Wednesday and Saturday night for a late evening tour.
For further details on our tours and schedules, please visit our prices and arrival times.
All tours are launched from Lake Point Tower, located right across the street from Navy Pier. The tours take you along the lakefront with an informative tour guide touching on the major landmarks in Chicago and some of the greatest views of its popular skyline. With all of its countless attractions Chicago has to offer, your Segway tours will offer the most stunning photo opportunities.
You will never be able to cover this much ground on foot, our tours are much more personable than a bus or boat tour, and gliding on a Segway is very cool.
The tour begins with a training session, getting you familiar and comfortable with riding a Segway. The training area has plenty of room for you to practice and maneuverer around to get the feel of your Segway.
You will feel confident and very comfortable riding a Segway after completing our training session.
We can have a group well informed and experienced through our training drills in less than a half an hour.

Segway Personal Transporters are all-weather. Tours can operate in rain or shine, but at Chicago Segway Tour we run tours ONLY when the weather conditios are suitable, and not like other companies that they run business even when the weather is heavily raining.
Your safety is our priority at Chicago Segway Tour (CST). When it’s raining heavily we will not jeopardize your safety for the sake of a tour, because:
- It's unsafe
- The tour will not be as enjoyable

This can be accomplished with a simple phone call. Sometimes when the rain is light,we can still provide the service but the final decision is on your hands.We give you the benefit of the doubt and at the same time a rain check with No expiration date.
