What you'll do

This Segway experience is the perfect activity for transitioning from day to night in Austin. Segway training takes place before dark then we'll cruise to some key vantage points for watching the sun set on Austin's amazing skyscrapers. As the city comes to life your Tour Guide will fill you with interesting facts and quirky details about why almost 27 million people visit Austin each year.
A brief stop can be made at Austin's newly built Central Public Library (time permitting). It's a state-of-the-art facility and a true testament to our city's creative & technological environment.

Cruising down 2nd St. shopping district is a highlight of this trip and making a visit to Willie Nelson's bronze, life-size statue.

The finale of this tour is watching Austin's Mexican free-tailed bat population take flight. Best of all, you get to leave traffic & parking behind w/ this small-group Segway Tour getting up close for the best views.

I'm well, are you? If so, let's ride!

Being a local for over 2 decades, I want to show you what I love most about Austin and I TRULY believe there's no better way to explore downtown than on a Segway! I live walking distance to many local favorites like Chuy's, Shady Grove, Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, Uchi and more! I've had the pleasure of taking over 800 first-time visitors on a Segway tour and would like to share the history and landscape with you and your family or group of friends. Kelsie and Hannah are my co-hosts and will lead this experience if I'm not available. Don't worry - they are true #TEXAS-friendly and 5 Star Tour Guides (just read some of their lights-out reviews!!) As a team, we're all pretty great at taking photos too.

We had a great time on the Segway’s and seeing the bats. Hannah is a great host - very friendly, knowledgeable, entertaining, and patient. Definitely a highlight of our trip!

Although we didn’t get to meet Shelby, Hannah was kind and she wanted to make sure everyone was comfortable and safe on the Segway’s, she was also very patient. So much fun, and I would recommend it.

Surprisingly easy to master the Segway- anyone can do it. We had a great guide, interesting tour, but the bats were really magnificent. Loved having a local help us understand when and where to see bats.

This tour was a fun experience. My gf and I had never been on a Segway before, but thanks to host on giving us the crash course we felt safe and confident riding. We got to visit nice venues and statues all while getting nice trivia about the city. The host was kind enough to take pictures of our experience. We eventually made it to the bridge around sunset and got to see the thousands of bats flying into the night sky. As a first time visitor to Austin I'm glad I booked this event and highly recommend.

Had never been on a Segway but it was super easy to be taught! It was so fun riding on segways! It was also a great way to get the run down of Austin and see the city!

Gabs was a perfect guide. As a life long resident of Austin he had knowledge of the city that was very helpful. Good ride, good weather, good viewing!
