Each tours begin with a group orientation followed by one-on-one hands on training with the Segway.

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!

I went with a group of around 20, and I absolutely loved it. The staff provided clear instruction on how to ride a Segway. It took me a few minutes to get used to it, but you get enough practice before the city tour. We went in the evening time, and passing the 6th street with a segway was a fantastic experience. Everyone looked jealous when they saw us gliding through streets. On the way, the guide explained some historical background of places, and I felt like I learned so much for about Austin in just 2 hrs than in my entire life in Austin. Also, the guides take the pictures with their digital camerica, so that you can solely focus on having fun! I absolutely recommend it.

We joined the City Tour for 2 1/2 hours. Most comfortable way to tour the city with a guide n learns a lot about Texas. The Guide was very friendly and suggested us some good restaurants to go. Highly recommended.

The group i was with was from Lubbock Tx and it was our 1st time in Austin. Our tour guide was the friendliest person we've met. He was full of knowledge and helped with everything. The service was fast and the segways were the most fun I've been on in a long time. I would highly recommend this to any family, business, etc.

4 of my business associates were looking for something to do prior to our conference and stumble upon a Segway tour. I must say it was absolutely the best and I highly recommend it to anyone that is not sure on how to start there visit in Austin. We were able to see attractions that would have taken hours to research, hours to drive around to see or hours to walk around to see. We were touring on Segways for almost 3 hours with our guide that was phenomenal. Besides teaching us the art of riding a Segway he added a personal touch to ensure we understood the the attractions and history of Austin.

I highly recommend this tour to ANYONE visiting Austin, it is a must do and I will look for this as I travel in other cities whether for pleasure or business and definitely when with my family.
