There are certain weight limits also so it’s best to check with each company to see what their stipulations are.

If a rider is under 18 years old they must be accompanied by an adult. Persons with certain health conditions, or who are pregnant are not allowed to ride.

There are no height restrictions as Segways have adjustable bars. Before you ride on these vehicles you will get training and become knowledgeable of how to ride this mode of transportation.

They recommend you wear closed toed athletic shoes, and all riders are expected to wear helmets. The routes that you are taken on are smooth to avoid encounters without a lot of bumpy problems.

Tours can run at different times of the year during the day and night, and on a daily basis as the weather permits.

If weather doesn’t permit your tour you can be allowed to reschedule. These tours can operate in every season depending on the company you choose.

So you can get your camera out because there will be plenty of interesting scenery, landscapes and art and architecture to take pictures of.

The advantages of a Segway tour gives you is that you can cover a lot of ground and have the pleasure of navigating yourself independently through many scenic areas of Chicago. You can enjoy a chance to tour and sight see with your family, friends and loved ones.
