We provide Segway tours of Austin with a focus on fun! Our highly sought after historical guided tours are conducted with Segways after you are comfortable. Each tours begin with a group orientation followed by one-on-one hands on training with the Segway.

We were the first Segway tour company to set up shop in Austin back in 2004 and remain the only local Segway tour with a single market focus. Our desire is to conduct safe yet educational experiences for every group no matter how big or small. Our local Austin guides average 5 years experience and truly enjoy showing guests around the city on the Segways.

Come experience a memorable tour for yourself!

We were in Austin, TX, for a wedding in October and thought it would be fun to take a segway tour of the capital. We reserved with Gliding Revolution online for a morning trip for about $150 for the two of us. We paid by credit card. Shortly after confirming our online reservation, we got a call from the company... More

I booked a 9:30 am 2 hour tour well over a month in advance thru Trip Advisor which apparently kicks it over to a third party company called Viator. I received a confirmation and voucher to print from Viator. We arrived at the meeting point to learn from a member of a party of 12 that the tour guide was... More

This was our first Segway experience and we really enjoyed it! After about 15 minutes of instruction and practice on the Segway, we were on our way. Our guide, Juan was very knowledgeable. He stopped and pointed out interesting sites and facts about Austin. We had a few minutes at the Driscoll and the Capital to walk around on our... More

Highly recommended. Juan, our guide did a great job of teaching us how to ride a Segway (it's easy). He was very knowledgeable and did a terrific job throughout the tour. We had a great time and would do it again!

Juan was an awesome tour guide! I would recommend this company to friends and family visiting Austin. I liked that there weren't a bunch of people on the tour just 6 of us.

We had been looking for a segway tour and after doing a little research - found this one. They advertise kids as young as 10 can drive a segway - so having an almost teenager - we signed up. Our tour guide was Hugo. He taught all of us (no one had done a segway before) to safely move around... More

We did the 3:30 tour leaving the Austin Visitor Center. Parking was free on Sat and convenient around the corner, just as their website indicated. Our tour guide trained a novice (me) to successfully use a Segway. My son loved it because it wasn't an educational tour, but a fun way to see Austin. Earlier in the day we toured... More
