Philly Mural Segway Tour - AWESOME!!

We love Segway and the Mural Segway was the last activity of our trip. Barry was our guide and what a lovely guy, informative, helpful, taking pictures, sharing information, and we thoroughly enjoyed the event. It was one of the highlights of our trip. We will most certainly recommend this event and Barry, keep on doing what you do, as you are doing a good job.

Guide was very attentive to our safety which is utmost important as we were segwaying through traffic and over potholes. Wish he talked a bit more about Philly mural project as later we noted that thete is a phone number you can call that describes some of the murals in the city. He was knowledgeable about the murals that we viewed.

This was my first ever Segway experience. As a 65-year-old who is a little afraid of speed, I was quite anxious. I did fine. I really enjoyed the murals. My favorite was the tidal wave on a high school - beautiful! Deshon was amazing! He was very supportive and informative.


Our mural tour guide was just fabulous! Barry was part of the Mural Arts program so you couldn’t get a better person to give this tour. Despite the cold, we all had a great time and learned a lot about the murals. Thanks Barry!
