WHY CHOOSE US
We are the ONLY Certified Segway Experience Center and Tour Operator in Philadelphia!
Our long-range interactive wireless audio system has a single ear bud which allows guests to tune into their tour guide’s narration while staying in motion and enjoying all the sights. This means more ride time, more information, and greater distance covered! Other tours have to pull over constantly to deliver small bits of information. The time spent gathering the group, pulling over, shouting information, getting everyone going again and repeating the process over and over doesn't make for a very enjoyable experience.
Brand New Segway Fleet
As the only certified Segway tour operator in Philadelphia, we adhere to the strict guidelines laid out by Segway, Inc.—one of which requires the use of the latest Segway products, information, and training. Our state-of-the-art vehicles leverage the latest technologies to create an easier and more enjoyable Segway experience than older models.
Comfort Foot Pads
Cushioned by a thick highly elastic industrial grade compound, Segway comfort foot pads are an upgrade from the standard factory-installed foot mats that most Segway tour operators use. We’ve elected to make the additional investment to ensure our guests are comfortable. Not only do these cushioned mats help absorb bumps better and protect joints, they also provide better traction and greatly minimize any fatigue that may come from standing during the multi-hour tour.
Storage Bags on Every Segway
Found on each Segway, our roomy and secure storage bags are more than just convenient. The guidelines set forth by Segway, Inc. restrict the use of backpacks or items that could alter a rider’s natural center of gravity; so unlike many other tour operators, we provide roomy and secure storage bags on every Segway, not just tour guide Segways. Because we know you don’t want to leave your essentials behind, or with a stranger.
Easy Booking & Rescheduling
With convenient 24-hour online booking and friendly customer service staff available 7 days a week by phone, booking your tour has never been easier. We also offer the most flexible rescheduling options in the tour industry. With us, you won’t get stuck if you plans change!
Most Flexible Cancellation Policy in the Industry
We offer the most flexible policy in the industry! We will give a 100% refund if you cancel
two or more hours in advance of your scheduled tour. That’s right! Unlike other
tour operators who mandate a 48+ hour cancellation window and charge rescheduling/cancellation
fees, we allow you to cancel due to weather, if your plans change, your flight
is delayed, or for any other reason as long as you notify us two or more hours
in advance. And we never charge a cancellation or rescheduling fee. Rescheduling
or canceling has never been easier, just call us at 805-650-7770. Please
Note: If you fail to notify us two or more hours from your departure time,
there is 100% charge with no option to reschedule.
Certified Tour Guides
Our outgoing and knowledgeable tour guides are handpicked during a selective hiring process, and complete a 110 hours of Segway and narration training before leading a Segway tour. This ensures we have the safest and most well-informed tour guides in town.
Strict Safety Guidelines
Safety is our number one priority. All of our tours follow strict safety guidelines geared to ensure a smooth and safe experience for all. Comprehensive video and hands on training are provided to each and every rider.
Philadelphia Segway Tours is part of the Wheel Fun Rentals family. What started in 1987 with four wheel Surrey cycles and evolved into bicycle rentals and tours, has made the natural progression to Segway guided tours. We have built our business and our reputation on providing safe and professional healthy outdoor fun for the whole family.
With more than 100 locations across the country, providing outdoor recreation to nearly 2 million customers annually we support and actively participate in the communities where we operate. In addition to providing green transportation alternatives to help reduce emissions and traffic congestion, we also partner with local organizations to provide recreational opportunities. For example, in each of our local markets we provide unlimited bike rentals to all Big Brothers Big Sisters mentors so that they have fun and healthy things to do with their Littles.
For over 25 years, our goal has been for every customer (and family) to leave with a huge smile and a cherished memory. Today, Wheel Fun Rentals offers dozens of fun and unique recreational items, designed to move you and entertain you.

Great time! So much better than trying to walk around the city and see the sites!
-Shelby & Alyson from Virginia Beach, VA
My grandson who just turned 14 and I had a great time.We didn't know what to expect but the video and the training made us feel very comfortable. Deshon was a great tour guide and we saw things we've never seen before even though we've both been in the city many times. A great memory to share with my grandson.

My friend and I took the tour on Saturday and as I expected it was a blast. My friend is 66 and wanted to do something she hadn't done before. I said, have I got an adventure for you. Like all 1st timers she was a little wobbly at first but caught on quickly. She had a ball as I knew she would. Ashton was our guide and just like the last time, he was patient and made us feel comfortable. He is a credit to your company. Just had to let you know how much fun we had. I'm sure I will lure some other people into taking the tour also.
-Dean from Philadelphia, PA
