We highly recommend taking the River & Bridges Tour which provides incredibly interesting narrative ( by David ) of course so much fun riding a Segway. It was a really special to get a close view of the Columbus Clippers Stadium ( Indians minor league baseball team ) along with the new Columbus Crew Soccer stadium. The uniqueness of the engineering of the Main Street Bridge is truly fascinating to view from a Segway. You’ll enjoy riding through several city scenic park areas with flowers in bloom. The parks include displays sculpture artwork and historical memorials.

You’ll view high end condominiums and new construction evidence of vibrant city lifestyle along with local favorite restaurants & entertainment areas.

We are seniors from The Villages of Florida and this tour ranks high as one of our favorites in the 6 years of touring on a Segways.

Great time! My teen and I went on the tour on a weekday in March during the quarantine and absolutely loved it. The tour guide, David, was engaging, funny, considerate, entertaining, etc. It was a very enjoyable. As this was during the quarantine on a weekday, the city streets were pretty sparse so it was much easier than normal to navigate and avoid pedestrians. Training was about 15-20 minutes. The tour was about 1h40m with a 5-minute rest break.

The Segways were fun to use to see more of the city than if we were walking. David's instruction had us safely on the move quickly and he was a great guide to some different areas of the city and the significance of the historical buildings. We've never been to Columbus and we gained understanding of the city from the tour.

Give it up for the MVP of this show, our guide... David! What a patient teacher and knowledgeable historian. Having never been on a Segway before, I was nervous about balancing but we went over safety drills and how to deal with common rider issues and in less than 15 minutes, I was zipping behind David, enjoying the views of the city.

The jokes never stop coming, and the adventure never fizzles out on this tour. Truly, the best city tour I have ever been on, would recommend 100%

This is our second Segway tour with David and SegAway Tours of Columbus. Our son moved here a few years ago and the whole family really enjoyed our first Original City Tour in the summer. We recently went back for another visit and did the Rivers & Bridges tour on a beautiful Nov day. Both were FUNtastic and David is an excellent tour guide who helps you feel comfortable and safe on his Segways. Even if you are not from out of town, these tours are GREAT! Do IT!

Until riding with "Dave", my first time on a Segway (what fun!), I didn't know Columbus Ohio has so many gems in their downtown district. Thanks to Dave for pointing out so many great features about the city, I have many exciting parks and places to visit next time. Great tour, very fun
machine! great tour guide!

While we had family in town for the holiday my wife booked the Saturday 8:30 pm (holiday lights) tour. We bundled up for a rather cold night and we had so much fun. We had nine in our group. 5 teens and their 4 parents.

My wife was so impressed with the booking process. Ron was extremely helpful.

We were all very impressed with the tour. Ron covered all the bases: (1) patient with our crazy teens;; (2) provided excellent training in the parking garage for us that were a little slow on the concept; (3) provided a great route for us; (4) a great tour guide including great Columbus talking points and holiday music between talking points; and (5) amazingly, knew what seemed like every bump, curb, and post that could create trouble.

Finally, a tip. There were a few parking options offered. We parked in the recommended “south” garage (first floor - where you enter) that is connected to the Hyatt and convention center. This was perfect. It was $4 dollars (weekend/night rate?). It was a perfect option for getting to the office. (Up one floor in the convention center)

Super instructor! David gave us detailed instructions and ample time during orientation to feel comfortable and confident enough for the tour. His personality and humor along with personal knowledge of the city made the trek so interesting.
My only suggestion is to make two brief stops instead of just one during the 90 minute ride.

First time on a Segway tour and my group loved every minute of it. Our Tour Guide Dave was excellent showing us how to operate the Segway and was very knowledgeable of Columbus. We can’t wait to take another tour.

We had a wonderful time touring downtown Columbus. Dave was funny, informative, and made us feel safe. I am not a natural at this sort of thing and I was a little scared at first, but found it to be fun and not scary at all. I highly recommend this company.
