Cheesesteak Segway Tour of Philadelphia

activities / Food & drink

Tour description provided by Viator

Sample five different Philly cheesesteaks as you tour South Philadelphia by Segway, stopping at the best cheesesteak shops along the way! Glide through the streets of South Philadelphia along a five-mile loop past neighborhood highlights, including Italian Market, South Street and Society Hill – all without breaking a sweat. On your two-hour tour, you’ll be introduced to the famed sandwich, ‘wit’ or ‘witout’ onions, and the lively vendors who make them. This small-group Segway tour is limited to 6 people, ensuring personalized attention from your guide.

Meet your entertaining guide and begin your South Philadelphia tour with a 30-minute orientation session. Once you feel comfortable riding your self-balancing electric Segway, you’ll weave through the streets of South Philly – stopping at five famous cheesesteak shops – on a five-mile loop. As you enjoy these scrumptious tastings of the sandwich that made the city famous, you’ll understand why there’s nothing quite like a crusty roll filled with thinly sliced sautéed beef and melted cheese. (See list under Itinerary, subject to hours of operation.)

Follow your guide through South Philadelphia neighborhoods like Italian Market, South Street and Society Hill as you take in the historical sights.

Along the way, stop at five authentic Philly cheesesteak shops, where you’ll sample five different cheesesteaks and determine which kind is your favorite – ordered ‘wit or without’ toppings. Gobble up one quarter of a cheesesteak at each vendor, from your classic hole-in-the-wall restaurant to the take-out window. Enjoy the flavors and textures of ribeye beef and melted cheese, dripping with toppings such as sautéed mushrooms, ketchup and hot or sweet peppers. Your guide will make sure you order the traditional Philly cheesesteak, known in Philly as ‘whiz wit’– meaning Cheez Whiz (processed cheese spread) and fried onions. Delicious!
