It says a lot that even locals clamor to sign up for this tour. Why? Segways are just plain fun. Sure, you may feel a little silly when you first climb on, but before long you'll be hooked. Catch your breath from giggling, and you'll catch some breathtaking views.

Segways are now commonly-used as a means of urban transportation, particularly in crowded areas where traffic can limit movement in a car or taxi, and they are especially popular with tourists! Segways offer a great way to see a city without the hassle of renting a car and navigating confusing roads, and without having to worry about walking long distances in short periods of time. Boston by Segway brings you a unique way to see the highlights of Beantown with its 1-Hour Boston Harbor Segway Adventure!

    Don’t be afraid, riding a Segway is easy and exciting! After completing a brief training lesson to help you find your balance, your tour guide will lead you through 60 minutes of pure fun. You’ll get a great city overview in a short amount of time! Start your tour in the heart of downtown on Boylston Street and then ride through picturesque Back Bay as you cross over the famous Newbury Street on to Commonwealth Avenue. Pass by statue after statue as you safely glide along one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Boston, full of rich history and impressive architecture. Then head over to Cambridge by crossing over Harvard Bridge and take a peaceful trip alongside the Charles River for one of the most impressive, breathtaking views of the city. Finally, you will cross over the historic Longfellow Bridge back into Boston, ride through Beacon Hill passing the Boston Common and Public Garden as you find your way back to Boylston Street. If you want to be blown away by some incredible views of the sun glistening off of the river and the Hancock Building, take this one-hour tour in the early morning or late afternoon.

Enjoy this comprehensive Segway tour of the vibrant and pedestrian-friendly area around Boston Harbor, brought to you by Boston Gliders! Don’t get too attached to your new wheels though—you can’t take you Segway home with you-- but you can, and should take some fantastic photos of Beantown!

Note: Segway riders must be at least 14 years old, and weigh between 99 and 310 lbs.

Must Do
By Glen Verified Reviewer from Ontario Canda on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Boston Harbor 1-Hour Segway Adventure by Boston Gliders:

We had 6 people aged 15 to 66 in our group and even grandma got the hang of the segways. It seems to book up early and we were only able to get a 8:30 in the morning booking. But we were so glad we took it. Doc was a great tour guide with lots of interesting facts. You dont want to miss this chance to ride the segways and see Boston.

The segways were great. Thought it would be hard to ride, but super easy to balance and stop. Needed to be as there was a lot of traffic in Boston!
