"This wash my first time..."

July 24, 2017 - 

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 was a lot of..."

December 9, 2016 - 

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.

"This is fun! I've never..."

November 9, 2016 - 

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.


"Fun way to view Austin..."

October 22, 2016 - 

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.


"This tour was amazing!..."

July 9, 2016 -

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..."

March 19, 2016 - 

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.


"Bryan, our tour guide, was..."

March 14, 2016 - 

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.


"it's the most fun tour..."

November 29, 2015 - 

it's the most fun tour ever.


"Our guide Elizabeth was excellent...."

November 14, 2015 - 

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!


"We loved the segway tour...."

October 18, 2015 - 

We loved the segway tour. We saw so much of the city in such a short period of time. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable. The night tour is great because the city is beautiful at night and our pictures are amazing. Thank you for a great memory!!


"It was so much fun..."

October 5, 2015 - 

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..."

October 1, 2015 - 

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..."

September 21, 2015 - 

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..."

August 28, 2015 - 

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


"Our tour guide, Brian was..."

August 4, 2015 - 

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..."

May 24, 2015 - 

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.


"Segway was a blast /..."

April 19, 2015 - 

Segway was a blast / very friendly and encouraging guide...did not care as much for the ghost stories, but the guide/tour/Austin was excellent


"Great fun! Our tour guide..."

March 24, 2015 - 

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


"I loved the segways. It..."

November 15, 2014 - 

I loved the segways. It took a little while to get used to riding them but after awhile it feels as if they are part of your normal body movement. What I was very disappointed in was I paid extra to be able to visit the bat bridge and as it turns out, its very rare that you do get to experience seeing the bats. Right away the tour guide said that this time of the year you never see the bats and its rare to ever be able to see them. If I had known this I would have not paid extra for this tour. There was also a concert so we were not able to go very far on the segways. I really think we should have had something taken off the price for this. I did not get what I paid for.


"We had so much fun..."

September 7, 2014 - 

We had so much fun on this your. We would definitely recommend it to our friends and family! Our tour guides were patient and extremely nice while we learned to ride our segways!


"I absolutely LOVE Segways!! I..."

June 13, 2014 - 

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


"This tour was fun and..."

November 26, 2013 - 

This tour was fun and interesting. Was disappointed that we really couldn't see the bats. Also, our guide was very knowledgeable but very soft spoken. Would have enjoyed it better if we could have heard better.


"The Segways were awesome and..."

August 3, 2013 - 

The Segways were awesome and the company did great at making sure we were safe on them. I would have liked to see more haunted places; perhaps heard more ghost stories. The bat bridge was also cool. I think it'd be so much better if the city of Austin would clean up the trash out of the river though. Overall, worth the trip.


"The tour was great, had..."

May 19, 2013 - 

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


"The tour guide was informative..."

March 23, 2013 - 

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