“Segway tour”

The 4 for us (youthful 60's) decided to try out the Segway tour while visiting Austin. Two of us had never been to Austin and it was a fabulous way to get a feel for the downtown and capital area. The sidewalks and roadways were very Segway friendly. Our guide, Hugo, did a great job telling us about the area and specific sites along the route. He gave us good instructions beforehand and kept an eye on everyone. We did a stop at the historic Driskell Hotel which was definitely worth seeing. We had 4 in our group of 6 who had never been on a Segway and by the end of our tour, they were feeling quite confident. It was truly delightful and we would definitely recommend this as a fun way to get familiar with Austin.

“Amazing experience”

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 the event so gritted my teeth and said nothing about my fear. I need not have worried. At the start we were all given a practical demonstration and lesson in how to balance and control the segway and how to stay safe and after only 5 mins I felt confident enough to take off. Within ten mins I was exhilarated! This is a marvelous way of seeing downtown Austin - far better than hop on/off bus and I would really recommend it to everyone. The guides were excellent and had a good rapport with the group which was of very much mixed age. I recommend the evening tour - bats and ghosts- which was great fun. The younger members of the group had no fears but even the oldies like me took to it like ducks to water - so go on - give it a try!

“Great way to see Downtown Austin!”

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!

“Early spring was a great time to glide the overcast Saturday afternoon away.”

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 Driskill and grab a drink of water. I recommend a hat, and a light wind jacket as you can move quickly and the sun is out even if it is behind the clouds.

We enjoyed Juan, our guide. The price we paid might have been the high end of the scale. We booked and paid online. Making a reservation at the Visitor's Center and paying when you arrive seems like a better plan.

We sort of forgot that if we started at 12:30, we wouldn't get to eat lunch until 3pm, but Moonshine - only half a block away - saved us from starving, and was delicious.
