Overview
Explore Austin with ease by Segway on a guided tour that covers the highlights. See the Texas State Capitol, historic Sixth Street, South Congress Avenue, Driskill Hotel, and more, with commentary from your guide throughout. Receive instruction on operating the Segway, an eco-friendly vehicle suitable for people age 10 and up. Choose from multiple departure times to fit your schedule.
Highlights
  • See more of Austin on a zippy Segway tour
  • Get an in-depth look at the Texas State Capitol and Driskill Hotel
  • Bring the whole family (ages 10 and up) on a fun Segway tour
  • Get an excellent orientation of the capital of Texas
What to Expect
Make your own way to a central Austin spot to meet your guide. Be sure to wear weather-appropriate clothes and flat, closed-toed shoes. Begin with training on Segway operations and a practice run, and then follow your guide around Austin’s top landmarks. Your tour includes use of all necessary equipment. Stop first at the Driskill Hotel and take a moment to walk around the interior while hearing from the hotel staff about the ghosts that are rumored to appear there. Head next to the Texas State Capitol where you hear about the history of Austin and have a moment to take in the impressive architecture. Continue on your ride through town, visiting South Congress Avenue, historic Sixth Street and more. Your guide provides tips on places to visit on your own after the tour ends, at the departure point.

We really enjoyed our segway tour. We went all over Austin and learned a bit about the history of the city. The guide was great and informative and riding the segway was easier than I expected. Definitely recommend.

Michael was a fun tour guide, and because we had only four people total in our group, it was easy to hear him and ask questions. There was only a little history as part of the narrative, but he did explain some landmarks briefly and had fun stories. We were satisfied that the

We had a group of 10 ladies in Austin for our annual girls trip. Shay spent time with each one of us to make sure we were all comfortable on the machines. The city is lovely and we enjoyed our time; the Segway experience was definitely a highlight!
