My wife and I live in Austin, and I've wanted to try a segway tour for a couple of years. Our tour guide, Jose, was terrific and took us on a nice tour around downtown, to the capital, and by Town Lake. Highly recommend this tour whether you are from out of town, or a local.

Our son wanted to do a Segway tour. We have never tried this before. Despite the cold weather we had a great time. Our guide was excellent and taught us how to use the Segway really quickly and well. The whole experience was great and gave us a different perspective of Austin.

Had a great time, a great and very knowledgeable guide in Juan, and would definitely recommend this company and this type of tour. Just put your bike helmet one and and get on your dorky Segway - Quit caring what people think about you and have a blast!

This was our 4th time of riding the segways with Juan. I cant imagine getting a better tour anywhere else. Juan puts safety first and what a great experience my grandkids had! Our group ranged in ages from 9yrs to 68yrs and we all did great under Juan's instructions. What a fun experience ......every time!!!!!!!!

We're met by Juan who quickly gave us a brief description of what the sequence of events were going to be. He demonstrated how easy it was to ride a Segway and allowed each of us to practice under his supervision. We took the "Government" tour and had a great time. Juan is very knowledgable about the history of the... More

Loved our tour with Juan last Friday! It was our first time ever being on a segway. I got kind of nervous because I didn't know what it would be like, but once Juan explained everything & gave us ample time to practice, we were pros! It was just two of us on this tour so he said he would... More
