What you'll do

We love our city and want to show it off! This experience showcases Austin landmarks and top tourists attractions including the Texas State Capitol grounds, historic Congress Ave., the Live Music district on 6th St. and the beautiful Town Lake Metro Park. We'll start with a training session, then cruise the downtown corridor checking off stops at Austin's most iconic places like the ACL Moody theatre where Willie Nelson's full-body bronze statue is proudly displayed. We'll pass by/snaps pics in front of one of many famous murals & beautiful backdrops and make a stop at an upscale souvenir shop if someone in the group is interested. I take pride in providing you with interesting city and state facts and great recommendations for the rest of your stay.

We're well, are you? If so, let's ride! After just one Segway tour, we were hooked! We traded in our jet-ski and bought a pair of Segways® - that was eight years ago. Now we leave our cars parked as much as we can and consider ourselves lucky to be #locals and live downtown showing others what we love about Austin. Last year when my husband and I were faced with a decision to leave Austin because of a job, we took a chance and bought a fleet of 18 Segways and started a touring business. We TRULY believe there's not a more fun, efficient (and effortless) way to explore downtown Austin! Sam Cook & Kelsie Dancer are my co-hosts and will lead this experience if my husband or I am not available. Not to brag...but everyone on this team is true #TEXAS-friendly and 5 Star Tour Guides (just read some of our lights-out reviews

Where you'll be

On a Segway, we can cover a lot of ground with efficiency and little to no physical effort. We'll pass by the best food trailer park in town, then make our way over Ladybird Lake, stopping on Pfluger bridge for an incredible view of the city and photo of your group. You'll see the old power plant district, Austin's new central public library and get spectacular views and information about Austin's newest skyscrapers

Great way to see the city! We accomplished way more than we could have on foot and it was way more exciting! I took my 12 year old kids and they love it. Great thing to do as a local, too to explore the wonderful city we live in.

Una gran experiencia, fue un recorrido muy divertido en el segway, además nuestro guía era muy atento y siempre preocupado por la seguridad de todos. Lo volvería a hacer sin duda.

My host was Sam this Christmas morning. It was a beautiful foggy and overcast day which made the tour great because it wasn’t too hot and wasn’t too sunny. Sam is personable and funny. He was able to tailor what we saw based on what I wanted to see since I was the only guest. I had never ridden a Segway before and had a lot of fun. Would recommend to everyone.

My family and I had a great time zipping around the sights of Austin on our Segways. It was the best way to get a feel for this beautiful city. I would highly recommend to anyone. And thank you Shelby for being so patient with my nervous 14 year old. She is still talking about her experience now!

Sam was very kind and friendly. I definitely became one of lover of Austin because of his way to take me around. We saw some arts and scenery, felt air of the town and spoke a lot. Shelby, I met her only start and end of the tour, was also friendly. Segway is good choice in this kind of experience!
