What you'll do

This experience starts with a 15 - 20 min. Segway training session making sure you're completely comfortable with how the Segway operates. Then we'll make our way through the charming Zilker neighborhood where you'll start to understand a bit about the climate and culture of Austin. We'll skim the downtown corridor for a quick lesson of the skyline, but we'll stay south of the river, heading down South Congress, to make time for shopping Austin's popular boutiques. A highlight of this tour is cruising to 10+ of Austin's most famous murals as well where you'll be sure to get the perfect snaps for your Instagram!

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. Our team is true #TEXAS-friendly and all 5 Star Tour Guides (just read some of our great reviews).

This segway tour was a wonderful experience and we would do this again. The tour guide was knowledgeable of the area and was very helpful in teaching us how to ride the segways. Segways are the best way to see a city. You can cover more ground than walking or bicycling. It allows you to see parts of the city you would not notice if you were driving.

This was a wonderful experience. We had Sam as our host and he was a hilarious storyteller. The Segway’s were fun and a great way to get around.

Shelby was very friendly and knowledgeable. She was a great teacher for someone who had never ridden a Segway before. By the end I felt like a pro. Would definitely recommend 10/10

Our guide was Kelsey. He was very patient and helped us build confidence quickly on the Segways. He was a knowledgeable and enthusiastic local guide. He taught us a great deal about Austin while on our tour, and also offered suggestions for other things to do and places to eat while here.

Best way to see any city! We ride a Segway in almost every city we visit and Shelby didn’t let us down on our roll thru Austin. 04 area she lives in suits our style very much. She also took us into downtown. Great experience! Highly recommend!
