Know More about this tour

After checking in at the local operator’s office in Portland, just a couple of blocks from the Willamette River, your Segway tour begins with training to make sure you are comfortable with your electric, self-balancing two-wheeler.

When your group is ready, follow your guide and enjoy your 1.5 or 2-hour city Segway adventure!

Waterfront Sightseeing Segway Tour (1.5 hours)
With your local guide, travel effortlessly by Segway along the west bank of the Willamette River, stopping at times to take photos and hear stories and fun facts from your guide.

Make your way to some of Portland’s most popular attractions such as Chinatown, an area that is listed as part of the National Register of Historic Places. Admire the Steel Bridge, a double-decker vertical-lift bridge spanning the Willamette that is one of Portland’s most-loved landmarks. Then check out Waterfront Park, a favorite local spot for jogging, biking and enjoying the fresh Oregon air.

Pass by city sights like the Jeld-Wen Field, home of the Portland Timbers soccer team; zip by the Portland Art Museum, the oldest museum in the Pacific Northwest; and glide through the Central Business District with its historic buildings from the early 1900s.

Your tour ends back at the starting point.

Downtown Historic Segway Tour (2 hours)

On this downtown Portland tour, see most of the same sights along the Willamette as the 1-hour tour, plus even more attractions like the Portland marina, the convention center and the Moda Center, home to the Portland Trail Blazers professional basketball team.

Many of the historical attractions you’ll see are in the city’s popular Pearl District, a former industrial neighborhood that’s now an upscale shopping and dining district. Ride past warehouses that are now home to art galleries and boutiques, and watch the streetcars go by.

During your tour, your guide will make stops so you can take photos and hear historical commentary. Return to the starting point at the end of the tour.

  • We had such an amazing time on our Segway tour. Our guides shared historical information about Portland.

  • This was a great way to get around Portland in a short period of time. We were able to see all of downtown and even crossed the bridge over the river and back. Guide was really knowledgeable and friendly. I would definitely recommend this to family and friends, especially if you are only in Portland for the weekend or 2-3 days.

  • A fun experience and would highly recommend trip

  • Brian was a fantastic host for our
    Segway Tour of Portland. He made the adventure fun and gave great information about the history of Portland. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would book again!

  • River vs. City tour allows you to go about 13 mph on the Segway there's a governor on it -- and that was really fun! Tour guide Jordan was very knowledgable, took us over the Tillikum bridge and back, showed us the tiniest park in Portland, we learned about bridges, the youngest mayor, saw a copy of the Liberty Bell, learned why there was a law passed forever ago that forbad lumberjacks to show up drunk for work, etc. PS: Segways follow the traffic laws of pedestrians not bikes so be prepared from grumbling from pedestrians. :

  • An interesting historical tour of downtown Portland - very informative. I had hoped for more discussion on the tunnels that were used in the past, but possibly we were in the wrong district. Enjoyed the ride near the river and Hector was very cheerful and information on everything else we saw.

  • After a snow storm in Portland, I wondered if this would work. The guide was sure we could manage it. I took my little training and off we went. But the guide took a slip and fall on his Segway. He immediately determined that it was not safe for us to continue. I REALLY appreciated his caution and concern for the safety of his client! He was a great kid and willing to refund my money! I will come back and try again!

  • Excellent guide and a super ride!!

  • Loved both guides. Their comic relief was perfect on a very chilly day!

  • If you are reading reviews and are wavering in any way you should commit! We had an absolute blast! We had never been on a Segway before and were a little bit apprehensive but have no fear, everyone in our group picked up on it right away. It was a wonderful way to see the sights.
