A great way to spend 2 hours. The segways are a blast to ride and learning about Austin's history was very interesting. One peice of advice: if you do this in the fall or winter be sure to wear gloves.

A Segway is a near-ideal way to visit a city. You can cover a lot of ground in a short time, and it's highly maneuverable. I took the CIty Tour, and it hit some of the high points of town; I definitely saw more of the city than I otherwise would have.

Downside: It's very expensive. Also, it does take concentration and focus to control the Segway, and especially to stand still. It can be hard to try to listen to the guide, focus on the sights, and control the vehicle all at once. Still, it can be done, and I found it worthwhile overall.

Janice did a great segway tour today. She did a good job training us and made the tour fun and interesting. This was our second time to Segway, the first in Vale, Colorado. I would suggest everyone try it.

My sister planned the Segway trip for us girls for the first of many adventures in Austin for my bachelorette weekend. Im from Indiana and visited Austin for the week. This tour was so much fun and still has us talking. I was nervous in the beginning but was ready to roll after the initial training provided by the tour guides. I learned lots of information about the history of Austin, and even got to see inside some of the historical buildings. Our tour guide (Jason) was amazing and had us laughing in no time. I will be recommending this trip to everyone and will be doing this again on the next trip. Make sure to get the pictures! I smile everytime I look at them.

This was the first Segway adventure for me and my 23 y.o. son-- we had a ball! Pre-trip "driving" lessons were provided by patient instructors, increasing my comfort level and therefore enjoyment of the trip. The breaks and photo-ops were thoughtful and well-timed. Our guide Evan was knowledgeable about the history of Austin, but his conversation about current culture was welcome as well. I felt that the length and quality of our experience was worth our money and time. Thank you so much, Gliding Revolution staff!
