Description

from Philly Cheesesteak Tour by Segway
Cheesesteak Segway Tour in Philadelphia
Enjoy a guided glide on a five-mile loop on this food-focused Philadelphia Segway tour! We stop and sample five different Philly cheesesteaks, at the best places, as you tour South Philly by Segway. Duration: 2 hours (plus 30 minutes for registration and training)

General Itinerary
After your Segway training, we start our Philly sightseeing tour off by gliding through Old City, learning about the historical center of Philadelphia and hearing stories about revolutionary times, as well as an introduction to one of Philly’s most famous inventions: The Cheesesteak. Then, we pass through Chinatown, marveling at the Friendship Gate and much more in this vibrant neighborhood. Visit the heart of Philadelphia’s Center City and discover the variety of galleries, shops, theaters, hotels, and more in this iconic neighborhood. Take a quick pass by Jefferson Hospital – one of the first hospitals in the United States – and then head south. After a quick stop at the enchanting Magic Gardens, it’s off to your first cheesesteak stop – the world-famous corner that’s home to Pat’s and Geno’s.

After our sample, we head north through the historic Italian Market and back onto South Street. Stopping again for another bite and hearing about how this area became the “alternative” section of the original city. We head back out, going north. One of the oldest neighborhoods in Philadelphia, Society Hill boasts beautiful, classic homes and after our tour through it, you stop for a final cheesesteak at one of several options along Market Street, before taking in other sights of Old City and heading back to our meeting location for the tour.

We did two teams of 20 year olds vs parents in Old City Phila. Everyone had great time "running"(fast walk) around city to find clues, stratagize gaining most points and stopping friendly strangers to stop and take photo with us; following along the list of items we needed to do from list. We knew the city so easy to navigate, but asking people/doing fun phots takes no knowledge of area. Map or google easy to use to help. Stopped to eat after and would be cool to be able to see all photos taken at that time, but we got next day from Tour. Staff, Lee, super easy and nice to communicate with, prompt response, friendly and good sense of humor. We even had 87 year old grandmother who walked around with us for 2 hours so all good. Just need good sense of humor asking people to take photos with you-or don't and can still add up points answering questions. I think we will do again in Spring with an even more competitive group of friends and throw in some bars.

We’ve lived in Philadelphia all of our lives and we were looking for something fun to do with our teens. We booked via Groupon and let me tell you it was the best experience this year! Owen was our tour guide and he did not disappoint! He knew the city very well and took us to places we’ve never visited. He was funny and great with the kids and most importantly he made sure we were safe. Owen, thank you so much and we are definitely booking again!
