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.
