Full description
Bundle up in your warm clothes and make your way to the starting point near Millennium Park in downtown Chicago to meet your guide for your Segway tour. Get started with a safety briefing and orientation to the Segway, then have time to become familiar with the controls and practice riding. Once you’re ready, set off with your expert guide through downtown Chicago.  Admire the holiday splendor of the Windy City as you watch ice skaters twirl around the Millennium Park Ice Rink, located below the city’s iconic silver ‘bean’ sculpture (officially named Cloud Gate). Then glide along Michigan Avenue under trees that glow with colorful lights and take in the fabulous holiday window displays at Macy's. Stop at Daley Plaza to check out the German-inspired Christkindlmarket, the city’s largest open-air Christmas festival. Made to resemble a European village in winter, the famous market features timber houses and festive booths that sell ornaments, gifts, and German fare such as bratwurst, fried potatoes, Gluhwein (mulled wine), and apple strudel. Have time to purchase a cup of hot chocolate to sip while taking in the market. You might hear a choir singing Christmas carols and spot the Christkind, the traditional gift-bearing angel in Germany. The 50-foot-tall (15-meter) Picasso sculpture appears to observe the holiday bustle from its perch in Daley Plaza while the city’s official Christmas tree glistens with ornaments and lights.  After taking a break to enjoy the holiday cheer at the Christkindlmarket, hop back on the Segway and zoom down State Street to appreciate the seasonal Macy's (formerly Marshall Fields) display windows. Finally, return to Millennium Park where your 2-hour tour ends.

I emailed the company director and told him unwanted to propose somewhere on the tour. He gave me several great options, and gave all the pertinent information to our tour guide. He took photos, and video of everything, and my fiance was thrilled, and surprised! AJ, our guide was awesome. We highly recommend this tourn and company. Thanks to Aaron, Josh, and of course AJ!
