Experience the best of Philadelphia’s murals in a unique and exciting way. Enjoy the ride on a Segway, as your local guide takes you into the back streets of some of Philly’s most artistic neighborhoods. Learn about the history and legacy of the Mural Arts Program, and view over 20 murals throughout your one-of-a-kind Segway tour.
You’ll begin your journey in Old City. You’ll head north from here, into some of the most eclectic and exciting neighborhoods in Philly, and known best by locals. Throughout the tour you’ll learn about the history of the Mural Arts organization, and about how these murals were produced. Some of these murals are tucked away along side streets, and designed by skilled artists with the local communities. Your guide will point out some fantastic hidden gems, along with more than 20 diverse and dynamic murals.
As you work your way from Old City to Northern Liberties, you’ll discover your first mural of the tour in a place you’d least expect. As you work your way through the neighborhood, you’ll be treated to murals with an amazing variety of colors, styles, and themes. As an added bonus, occasionally you’ll have a chance to step off the Segway for a closer look.
You’ll then earn a well-deserved break at a local coffee shop, café, or sandwich shop for a quick stretch of the legs. As you continue your trek through Northern Liberties, and then into the Spring Garden (“Loft District”) area, you’ll pass by some of the best pubs, restaurants, and music venues in Philly. Your guide will be happy to make recommendations to his/her favorites. Murals will appear in the most unexpected places, and you’ll learn why each is special to the city.
After an exciting ride through Chinatown and a great look at that neighborhood’s murals, you’ll make your way back to Old City. Your guide will lead you back to the Philly Tour Hub, and you’ll immediately begin the discussion about which mural was your favorite on the tour. We’ll send your pictures within days of your Segway mural experience, and you’ll have a great chance to share with family and friends.
We make safety a high priority on your adventure, and we know you'll return with a much greater appreciate of the City by the end of your exciting Philadelphia Segway tour.
