  • Tour guide was very friendly and patience on guiding everyone about the Segway. He ensured everyone had certain level of confidence before he started the tour. Overall i enjoyed myself a lot!

  • Great way to see the city. Our guide Alex did a great job! I would highly recommend this company and tour!

  • Really cool tour, riding the Segways was super fun!

  • Absolutely great experience great guide I will definitely will do it on my San Diego vacation

  • This wash my first time on a segway. I was nervous at first but the tour guide was very helpful. It was so much fun. I encourage everyone to try this in all major cities, it is a great way to get around and a great way to see the sites. Fun with a group of people or by yourself. Enjoy yourself !!!!!

  • This is fun! I've never rode a segway but the guide was attentive to my learning curb When we went the weather wasn't right for the bats so not that may came out under the bridge. Still a beautiful tour and great photo opportunities.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • I loved it! Our tour guide was great and very informative, I learned a lot of neat things and will definitely be back soon

  • Great fun. John was a great tour guide and teacher. Never on a Segway before. Comfortable after a minute with his instructions. Great guy. Excellent tour. Despite the rain falling on the way to the tour, no rain during the tour. All went well. Most fun I have had in a long time. Look forward to my next Segway tour.

  • it's the most fun tour ever.

  • Our guide Elizabeth was excellent. This was our first experience with a Segway and it was great. It's hard not to want one of your own after this experience. Elizabeth was very patient with us and answered all of our questions while giving us a great tour of downtown Austin. We didn't get to see the bats probably too late in the year, but we still had a wonderful time. We highly suggest you put this on your itinerary when visiting Austin!

  • It was so much fun and the only thing that was missing were the bats but you can't control that.

  • If you've never been on a Segway, then you're missing out. Those little buggers are a blast! This tour was not too heavy on the haunted lore of Austin, but that was more than compensated for by the bats who cooperated and took off from under the bridge right on cue, the ride through the city and the exuberant tour guides. Very much fun, and worth every penny.

  • Awesome awesome awesome... Our guide was Elizabeth and she was a hoot. Very lovely, patient and witty. We had an amazing experience for our 16th wedding anniversary. You gotta do it.

  • Greg was great. Had a blast. Will definitely do it again.

  • Our tour guide, Brian was great! He took time to make sure that those of us who had never been on a Segway was comfortable before we took off. It was so much fun to see Austin on a Segway! As a resident of Austin of 35 years, I learned a lot about my city! I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn about the dark side of Austin. Oh, did is say it was so much fun too!?!?!

  • Our guide Elizabeth was fun and we got to see a lot of Austin. The Segway portion was great the Haunted part was a stretch and the Bat's didn't show up.

  • Great fun! Our tour guide Greg was terrific and we loved zooming around the city.

  • I absolutely LOVE Segways!! I was a little concerned about Segwaying after sundown but the guide had the safety of the riders in mind at all times. Thanks

  • The tour was great, had more fun than expected. Two teenage daughters loved it.

  • The tour guide was informative and very patient during the training.

  • This was a lot of fun, it was our first time on the segways, but interesting to hear about haunted Austin.
    Too bad the bats had already gone but it was still great.

  • Fun way to view Austin at night, but didn't know until we arrived that the bats had left town in September for the winter.

  • Bryan, our tour guide, was friendly, humorous, and patient. I enjoyed the stories he told about Austin history and haunted buildings. Riding the seaways was fun and easy. Of course, you have to be careful and listen to Bryan. The bats did not come out, but that was ok. I plan to take this tour again in case the bats do come out.
