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!

My 10-year-old nephew was in Austin to visit and I wanted to take him on a Segway tour. However, the other tour groups have a minimum age requirement of 13-14. Gliding Revolution's 60-pound requirement in place of an age requirement allowed him to join the tour, which makes sense because kids these days are often better at riding things like... More

Very nice tour guide who made the Segway easy to learn, we were riding like pros in no time. There was also a stop at the Capitole that was great.

Best part of our trip to Austin!! It was myself and my 3 teenage daughters. Since it was their first time on a Segway, Jason took the time to ensure they were comfortable "driving" before setting off on our tour. Thank goodness I selected the 2 hour tour vs 1 hour tour because my girls did not want the tour... More

Had a lot of fun despite being the busiest weekend of the year. Still it was easy to learn even for our 10 and 12 year old daughters

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
