Itinerary

Your guide will give you a 30-minute training session before you set off on the self-balancing Segway vehicles. Then, you'll head down to Penn's Landing for views across to New Jersey and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge.

Glide through the Historic District, passing Elfreth's Alley and the Betsy Ross House. Admire Independence Hall en route to Society Hill, where you can marvel at the stately homes while catching the aroma of fresh coffee at quaint cafés.

Pass over Avenue of the Arts to Rittenhouse Square, before winding through the Fitler Square neighborhood to Schuylkill River. The scenery changes as you work your way along the paths of the Schuylkill Banks, joined by runners and bikers en route to the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Admire the statue of Rocky Balboa at the bottom of the steps made famous in the 1976 blockbuster movie before moving on to Benjamin Franklin Parkway to see Rodin’s “Thinker” statue in the outdoor sculpture garden. A ride along some of the back streets will lead you to the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. From there, you'll loop through Chinatown on your return to the Historic District.

At the end of your tour, you'll bid a tearful farewell to your guide who will upload the photos taken during the tour for your viewing pleasure when you get back to a computer.
