277 Pine Street, Burlington, Vermont
Segway® Personal Transporters are the perfect way to see Burlington. Why walk when you can glide about effortlessly on an electrically powered, self balancing, eco-friendly, zero emissions personal transporter? Truly a technical miracle, the Segway PT is the future of human transportation. See five times as much of Burlington as you could on foot in far less time with a tour guide that will provide you with an interesting historical account of Vermont’s Queen City.
No prior experience is necessary. We provide you with training operating these machines (about half an hour) and then we are off on the tour. It’s easy. It’s intuitive. And these machines are a godsend for people with mobility problems.

Burlington Segways offers two tours of the waterfront, the bike path and downtown Burlington:
One hour tour $59 + Parks fee $3 = $62
Two hour tour $89 + Parks fee $4.60 = 93.60
Both tours begin and end at our shop at 277 Pine Street in downtown Burlington. After checking in guests will view a 10 minute training tape from the manufacturer and then proceed with hands on training on the Segway guided by staff until all guests are confidently controlling their machine. Then it’s off on the tour.
THE ONE HOUR TOUR
We start at our shop and then proceed to the bike path, gliding through Burlington’s beautiful waterfront park while the tour guide recounts the rich history of Burlington since its founding in 1773. Witness breathtaking views of the Adirondack Mountains twelve miles across Lake Champlain, see the Burlington Boathouse and ECHO Museum, the Coast Guard Station, the fishing pier, the Moran Plant and the north forty acre preserve before returning to our shop via the bike path.
THE TWO HOUR TOUR
Guests will complete the one hour tour above and then proceed up College Street into downtown Burlington. The first stop is to see the Follett House, the beautiful Greek Revival Structure, built in 1840 by Burlington merchant Timothy Follett. Then it’s off to the birthplace of Ben & Jerry’s, the Church Street Marketplace and finally UVM, before returning to our shop.
Guests must be 16 years old and weigh between 100 and 260 pounds. Appropriate closed toe footwear (no sandals) and a liability waiver are required. Sorry, no pregnant ladies.
