My girlfriends and I were looking for something different to do while in Austin, I came across Gliding Revolution Segway tours and knew we had to try it. We had a blast! Our instructors were great. It only took 10 minutes to learn how to operate the Segway. The one instructor that gave us the tour was very polite and... More

We got to see a few areas, but it was just as good as any other segway tour in another city. It's a nice way to see some of the sites in Austin.

There are a couple of different tours that my family has taken with Gliding Revolution...We did the Capital Area Tour and the "Eastside" Tour. Both were AMAZING! It's a great way to enjoy both the outdoors and get to learn about Austin (not to mention that it is an incredibly fun way to spend an afternoon). The guides were informative,... More

This was a great tour. This was the second city I had been on a Segway tour in. I was a little worried as my friends had never been on Segways and had to be coached in to going. Once they got on the Segways they absolutely loved the experience. We now plan to go on a Segway tour in... More

I've done Segway tours twice with GR, and both times it was a great experience. After the tour they let us "play", seeing who could navigate a coned course. It's amazing how quickly you get used to the controls. My 6'5", 170 lb brother managed to throw himself off after an ill-advised maneuver, but he had no one but himself... More

I went with a small group from work for a team building exercise. The staff was friendly, and helped make sure each of us was comfortable on our Segway before setting out. Downtown Austin is a great place to tour this way, and we really enjoyed every bit of our tour.

We booked the early-morning slot and were pleased with the whole experience, top to bottom. Our guide was professional, informed, appropriately humorous and patient throughout. Not once did we feel in any way unsafe or bored. We had just the right balance of structured and unstructured time. A terrific value.

We did this Segway tour ~ 6 years ago (but could not select that "when" in the list below) with our older daughter and had a great time learning more about Austin, zipping — more or less — over speed bumps, and being taught how to ride those marvelous machines. Don't miss it!

Our tour guide (I think his name was Juan) was so awesome! He was really informative and made the ride a lot of fun. We went early in the morning on Sunday, so it ended up being a private tour. It was really cool in the morning and we were able to take pictures at more spots because it was... More
