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!!!!!!!!

Juan is very knowledgable about the history of the... More

My 2 girlfriends & I had a most wonderful time this weekend on the Segways. This was a first for us. We did the Bat Bridge Tour, 6 th Street, The State Capital and downtown. We were intimidated at first but it was so much easier than we thought and had a great time. Next time we will not go... More

We held our annual leadership conference in Austin this year and wanted something new for a team building activity. Gliding revolution put together a racing course using the segways. We had a blast. Juan and Shay were awesome. Would definitely be seeing them again next time in Austin.
