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!

We had an awesome time on the Segway tour! Juan was our guide. He taught us quickly and easily how to ride the Segways. We had some time in the parking lot to practice and get comfortable on them. The tour was informative and fun. We've always lived in Texas and still learned a lot about Austin we didn't know.... More

We enjoyed a morning Capitol city tour with Juan. Forecast was for a mid-90 deg sunny day and I did not want to waste it staying in air-conditioned cars and hotels. The tour of the city is pretty interesting, particularly to a newcomer to Texas. We stayed on mostly small streets or the sidewalks (since it is hot, not too... More

This was my first time in Austin and my first time on a Segway and i loved every moment of it. Our tour guide was patient instructing how to balance and control the Segways. We took an Early Bird tour and our experience was really great! It was a unique and fun way to go around Austin and see the... More

It was my first time on a Segway and this was a wonderful experience. We took an Early bird tour and didn't regret it a bit. The streets were quite and not crowded. Tour guide was excellent!

Wasn't sure what to expect but it was really a lot of fun. Juan was our guide and he is great, nice and informative. We took the 1.5 hour tour but should have done the 2.5. If you never rode a Segway, neither did I but you will pick it up in a matter of minutes. This tour is a... More

We were visiting Austin & looking for something to do our last morning there. Booked online. Online policy stated they would rain check if raining. Showed up for tour cloudy & forcast of rain. Another family was also there for tour. Tour director stated he checked radar & only some scattered, very light rain may be possible. Both families agreed... More

Tour was perfect length, Juan was amazingly patient, and helpful, especially as my wife struggled. This is a wonderful little adventure, and we got a bit if freedom. We might have been lucky to go on a Monday and be the only people, so we might have gotten extra attention and leeway. But a,amongst professional. great job,

Turned up at 10 minutes notice for a tour and joined - our guide - Juan - was great - got it just right - even though it rained a bit - really didn't matter and I went away knowing a bit more about Austin, the town and its history - thoroughly enjoyed it!

My wife and I had a superb experience. We were both Segway virgins but had no issues with them after the brief(ish) instructions. The tour itself (we did the longer Capital Pavement tour) was both fun and informative. My only complaint, and I'll grant that it comes with a large asterisk, is that the tour was shorter than I expected.... More

Shay was great at demonstrating the operation of the Segway unit to my wife and I. Juan did an great job at city guiding us around the main attractions of Austin. Will definitely recommend to families, friends and others.
