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 been looking for a segway tour and after doing a little research - found this one. They advertise kids as young as 10 can drive a segway - so having an almost teenager - we signed up. Our tour guide was Hugo. He taught all of us (no one had done a segway before) to safely move around... More

Reserved same day by phone for 3:30 tour . Juan was our Tour guide / Trainer and he was great - He got us up to speed quickly and surprisingly, its is much easier to maneuver than I thought. It was so much fun . The Tour was all around town with some stops and photo opportunities at Driscoll Hotel,... More

We did the 3:30 tour leaving the Austin Visitor Center. Parking was free on Sat and convenient around the corner, just as their website indicated. Our tour guide trained a novice (me) to successfully use a Segway. My son loved it because it wasn't an educational tour, but a fun way to see Austin. Earlier in the day we toured... More

As a person who is terrified of skating and can barely manage a bicycle, when I heard that I was booked in to a two and half hour segway tour of Austin I nearly had a heart attack! I was visiting from Ireland and as the rest of my family were looking forward to it I felt I couldn't spoil... More

Just got back from Austin and toured the city with Austin Segway Tours by Gliding Revolution on Sunday, April 3. Shay is great. His staff is very informative and helpful. I was with a rather large group, all first time on a segway. Never once did Shay or anyone on his staff makes us uncomfortable. They went out of there... More

We were lucky that we had a totally private tour by chance. We have taken a lot of Segway tours so it was great not to be limited by other people. Our guide, Jose?, was wonderful - careful to point out risky spots, but comfortable enough to let us really ride around especially at the capital. He had a great... More

My group consisted of 10 friends in our mid 50s of varying levels of fitness. Before we began the tour everyone felt secure in their abilities on the Segway thanks to very patient instruction by the tour guide and one other employee. We toured beautiful Austin with stops at many different significant sites at a safe but fun speed. Juan... More

My 13 year old and I took the 9:30 AM Saturday tour. We loved it! First time on a Segway for both of us. Juan made it easy and safe and was a great guide. We were able to stop and roam around both the Driskill Hotel and the Capitol. Highly recommend!

If you haven't tried a Segway - go for it! I am nearing the big 70 and it is a whole lot easier than walking or trying to see a busy city by driving and getting in and out, parking, etc. We hit landmarks all over downtown and had enough breaks to see the interior of the Capitol and the... More
