On our first visit to Portland we decided to take our first Segway ride! Doug, our tour guide was wonderful to accommodate us at our time preference on an hr.+ tour. His instructions for first time riders was presented clearly, with confidence and skill. He was also very considerate with all pedestrians in navigating around the town of Portland, and in keeping us safe. Looking forward to another Segway tour in the future!

We had Elizabeth, a native Austonian, for our tour guide and she was fabulous. Loved the tour and the Segway adventure. Elizabeth made sure we " were one" with our segways before embarking on a wonderful tour of the state Capitol, downtown, Lady Bird Lake and the warehouse district. Would definitely do it again, thanks Elizabeth.

Enjoyed touring downtown Austin and looking like a total nerd, I really didn't care since I was having so much fun ! We rode down 6th street, zipped around the capital and to the water's edge to view the congress bridge. You must be age 14 and up! An older lady in our group got off her segway and twisted her ankle.... it can happen! Only do this if you are confident and have balance! So glad I did this! Question.... why aren't our guides required to wear helmets? I guess they didn't want to look like a nerd, just guide nerds.

The segway tour was a birthday gift from my daughter. It looks fun in the advertisements but once you actually see the segway in real life and watch it in action, it's a little scary. No need to be scared! The 2.5 hour morning tour began with quick paperwork and then driving lessons. The instructors were great at explaining how the segway works and made sure everyone knew how to operate one before we took off. We practiced riding around the Texas State Capital building which was mostly empty on a Saturday morning. Once everyone was comfortable with turns, stopping and starting, speeding up and slowing down and navigating through small spaces, our group took off in a single file line down the sidewalks of Austin. I am not a tourist and have been in the Austin area 30+ years, but I saw Austin in a whole new way. Our guide, Elizabeth, was fun and funny and talked about the history of the area. We stopped now and then to learn about a certain site or to take pictures. I am a 52 year old klutz and I did not fall off, crash or hurt anyone else. You can do it and you will love it.
