Overview
Discover Old Town Scottsdale on a 2-hour tour by Segway, a great transportation option for sightseeing in this vibrant part of town. After learning the basics of handling the Segway, follow your knowledgeable guide to learn about the town's history and get insider tips on the best places to visit at your leisure, including where to find great performances, art installations and restaurants. With numbers limited to 9 people, this small-group tour provides a personalized experience with your guide.
What to Expect
Make your own way to the designated meeting point in Scottsdale to meet your guide.

Start off with a detailed orientation to the Segway, and have time to practice and get comfortable with the controls. After a few minutes, most people feel comfortable maneuvering this fun and eco-friendly transportation device.

When you’re ready, step onto your Segway and follow your guide across Soleri Bridge, designed by Italian architect Paolo Soleri, a student of the American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The pedestrian-only bridge features 64-foot-high steel pylons that act as a sundial, and a spacious waterfront plaza for a community gathering place.

Glide through the waterfront area and check out public art installations along the way, then head into the Arts District. Your guide points out art galleries, outdoor sculptures and contemporary Native American art. Then cruise by the Scottsdale Historical Museum, which is housed in the former Little Red Schoolhouse, built in 1909 for the education of early Scottsdale residents.

Next up, see Scottsdale's first United States post office, now home to Porter’s Western Store. Pass other historic buildings including the Roald Amundsen Pullman Private Railroad Car, built in 1928 and part of the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park. See Farmer’s State Bank, now the Rusty Spur Saloon, and other highlights of Old Town before your tour returns to your starting point at the end of two hours.

Old Town Scottsdale at night

We had a great tour of Old Town Scottsdale at night. We were in Scottsdale in July, so the evening tour was very comfortable temperature-wise. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

Amazing !

We did the tour for the first time even we've been several times in the area. There was a short, but clear briefing of how to "ride" the segway and we had a chance to try it before the tour started. We even got clear...More
