Lifelong Austinites and brand-new tourists love our Segway tour experience and how we offer a unique way to participate in Austin sightseeing and exploration. For over 14 years, we have curated several different tour options to match the parts of the city that you would most enjoy. When you tour with us, you’re not just renting a machine, you’re getting a guided adventure that highlights the history, art, and technology of the Capital of Texas and the live music capital of the world! Our professional tour guides are local experts who will make sure you see all the best sights and detail the in-depth history of our tours’ highlights to ensure that you will see the best of what downtown Austin has to offer in a fun, friendly, and safe manner.
Each tour we offer begins with a personal orientation to make sure your Segway experience is safe and comfortable. Once we’re sure you’ve got the hang of the Segway, we depart for downtown Austin’s most exciting and memorable sights. We offer many tours throughout the day, so we’re happy to fit into your schedule.
From 9:30am to 11:30am, we offer our Capitol Pavement tour to better explore the nearby historic Capitol grounds. The massive 9 block Capitol campus can seem overwhelming at first, but our tour guides will show you the best spots. After gliding around the capitol and government district, we will lead you down Congress Avenue, the live music district, world famous 6th street, and by the beautiful Driskill Hotel. Other sides include Willie Nelson Boulevard, going along Lady Bird Lake for picturesque views of the Austin skyline. We finish by zooming across Lamar Street and explore the new Seaholm district and West Austin. And there’s plenty of time to stop for pictures!
For some fun after lunch, we have our Afternoons in Austin tour starting from 12:30pm to 2:30pm. We start at the Capitol, going back in time to learn all about early Austin, when Sam Houston acted as president of the Republic of Texas. Then, we move to more modern eras as we go down the live music district and 6th street. This tour is great for the best of both new Austin hotspots, decades-old Austin history, and lots of photo opportunities!
