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. We may not be the least expensive yet our customers seem to think a tour with us is worth the money.! Come experience a memorable tour for yourself!

Our guide process the full payment by accident ($300 dollar mistake). I've been waiting on a refund for months now, I was sent a refund check in April which I deposited but then bounced... More

We aim to please every guest that visits our business! Unfortunately we had some confusion with this guest wanting to use daily deal tickets. There was not a mention of a daily deal in our calendar system or by the customer at the time of checkin for the tour so our tour guide collected full payment for all participants wanting... More

First time on a Segway for my wife and I. Juan was an excellent instructor and guide and certainly enhanced the experience. The tour itself hit most of the places to see in Austin and Juan provided some great recommendations for places to eat and drink. Took plenty of pit stops to rest and see things. The only bummer is... More

Shea and his daughter took us out for the earlybird tour and it was utterly amazing! We beat the heat with the early time and got to see a lot of Austin that we hadn't the day before. We got to hit all the high points of downtown--including stops at Driskill Hotel and the Capitol--with interesting history behind each. It... More

We booked the Capitol pavement trip. It was a perfect way to learn a bit about Austin, see some cool historical sites and the state capital. Our guide was VERY helpful in teaches us how to ride the Segway. We all got a good lesson on riding one with about 15 minutes to get used to them and then off... More
