We provide Segway tours of Austin with a focus on fun! Our highly sought after historical guided tours are conducted with Segways after you are comfortable. Each tours begin with a group orientation followed by one-on-one hands on training with the Segway.

We were the first Segway tour company to set up shop in Austin back in 2004 and remain the only local Segway tour with a single market focus. Our desire is to conduct safe yet educational experiences for every group no matter how big or small. Our local Austin guides average 5 years experience and truly enjoy showing guests around the city on the Segways.

Come experience a memorable tour for yourself!

This Segway tour is really fun and Shay is a great teacher and guide. We have never been to Austin so it was nice to visit the highlights like Capitol and Driskill- got to go inside too. Segway can be learned by anyone- like me a middle aged woman or my 13 yr old son. Definitely recommend.

We are visiting from California and had the best time cruising around Austin and seeing all the historic sites. Shay was extremely patient, knowledgeable and fun. He kept us all together and made it a great experience. I would totally do it again! Thank you, Stephanie A. Roseville, CA

My friends and I did the Skyline Tour and it was amazing! Shay was a great guide and very polite. He gave us extra time to explore and also served as a great photographer! It was the highlight of my trip and will definitely book with him again!

We had Shay as our guide and this was our very first time on a Segway tour. We had a blast, what a fun way to see the city, learn some interesting history and facts and keep our 12 and 9 year old entertained the entire time. We had to adjust our tour time due to the weather and they... More

We were in Austin, TX, for a wedding in October and thought it would be fun to take a segway tour of the capital. We reserved with Gliding Revolution online for a morning trip for about $150 for the two of us. We paid by credit card. Shortly after confirming our online reservation, we got a call from the company... More

I booked a 9:30 am 2 hour tour well over a month in advance thru Trip Advisor which apparently kicks it over to a third party company called Viator. I received a confirmation and voucher to print from Viator. We arrived at the meeting point to learn from a member of a party of 12 that the tour guide was... More

This was our first Segway experience and we really enjoyed it! After about 15 minutes of instruction and practice on the Segway, we were on our way. Our guide, Juan was very knowledgeable. He stopped and pointed out interesting sites and facts about Austin. We had a few minutes at the Driscoll and the Capital to walk around on our... More

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... More

Highly recommended. Juan, our guide did a great job of teaching us how to ride a Segway (it's easy). He was very knowledgeable and did a terrific job throughout the tour. We had a great time and would do it again!

Juan was an awesome tour guide! I would recommend this company to friends and family visiting Austin. I liked that there weren't a bunch of people on the tour just 6 of us.
