Description

from Segway Mural Tour
Segway Mural Tour Details
Discover Philly’s artistic side on this relaxed two-hour Segway tour of Philadelphia’s murals.

General Itinerary
Experience the best of Philadelphia’s murals in a unique and exciting way. Enjoy the ride on a Segway, as your local guide takes you into the back streets of some of Philly’s most artistic neighborhoods. Learn about the history and legacy of the Mural Arts Program, and view over 20 murals throughout your one-of-a-kind Segway tour.

Begin your journey in Old City. Head north from here, into some of the most eclectic and exciting neighborhoods in Philly, and known best by locals. Throughout the tour, you learn about the history of the Mural Arts organization, and about how these murals were produced. These murals were designed by artists within the local communities and some are tucked away from the main streets, but your tour guide knows where to go so you can see the best ones. Your guide points out some fantastic hidden gems, along with more than 20 diverse and dynamic murals. These murals use a variety of amazing colors, styles, and highlight important themes.

As you work your way from Old City to Northern Liberties, discover your first mural of the Segway tour in a place you’d least expect. As an added bonus, occasionally you have a chance to step off the Segway for a closer look at these works of art.

You then earn a well-deserved break at a local coffee shop, café, or sandwich shop for a quick stretch of the legs. As you continue your trek through Northern Liberties, and then into the Spring Garden (“Loft District”) area, you pass by some of the best pubs, restaurants, and music venues in Philly. Your guide is happy to make recommendations to his/her favorites. Murals appear in the most unexpected places, and you learn why each is special to the city.

After an exciting ride through Chinatown and a great look at that neighborhood’s murals, make your way back to Old City. Your guide leads you back to the Philly Tour Hub, and you immediately begin the discussion about which mural was your favorite on the tour. Philly Tour Hub sends your pictures within days of your Philly Segway mural experience, so you can share your adventure with family and friends.

Philly Tour Hub makes safety a high priority on your adventure, and we know you’ll return with a much greater appreciation of the city by the end of your art-focused Philadelphia Segway tour.

First time visiting Philly and decided to see the sights by segway. Our guide Barry was amazing, bringing us around to see various things, both historical and cultural and he was very knowledgeable as well as personable. Riding around the streets of Philly was so much fun and Barry always made sure we were safe. If you ever wanted to tour Philly, this is definitely the way to do it!

"Best Way to Tour Valley Forge"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 31, 2019
We were in Philly without a car and had a last-minute idea to go visit Valley Forge. We called Philadelphia Urban Adventures and they quickly and painlessly set us up with a driver/tour guide. He kept in touch with us, and the morning of the tour he arrived at our hotel with coffee and donuts and a spacious car. A half hour later, we were walking in the steps of General George Washington and Alexander Hamilton and Friedrich von Steuben. It was great having our guide to ourselves, stopping where and when we wanted to for photos and more information, hearing stories we'd never hear anywhere else. It was an unforgettable day, and we can't wait to use this company again next time we're in Philly.

Great team excursion / holiday lunch for the IT crew. Adam shared parts of the Rocky Tour as we made our way up Frankford ave for Pizza, CheeseSteaks, Milkshakes and Pastry. The team loved it and we plan to do this every 6 months.

"Two Hour Segway Tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 15, 2019
We did a 2-hour Segway tour for my husband's birthday. After a short video and very informative training session we were confident to hit the busy Streets of Philadelphia. This is our second tour of the city. We did the Big Bus tour and cannot compare at all to the Segway highly recommended. Since we were the only ones that booked that day we had a private tour just the two of us and our guide Victoria. Victoria was awesome and very knowledgeable. Being natives to Philadelphia we thought we knew all about it to history but Victoria told us some new and interesting facts about the historical sites along with some great recommendations for restaurants. Victoria was vigilant and making sure our safety came first, bending your knees for the bumps in the road, along with the traffic patterns on the busy streets. I highly recommend is Segway tour great way to see the city and learn about its history. Victoria was an excellent tour guide and even took some great pictures all of us along the way.
