Gabe was a great tour guide. Always pointing out things. The EBike was really cool too. While I do a fair amount of biking, the EBike was fun and allowed us to cover a LOT of ground without making the tour a physical challenge!
Did four tours using the ATX pass, including the segway and driving. The electric bike was the best way to see the city. Compared to the segway, you can travel faster, you are seated, it is narrower when dealing with barriers, and much for fun. Enjoyed learning of passage ways to get around. The crew was also very accommodating with customizing the tour, friendly, and knowledgable. Location south of downtown, with available parking, was also nice.
We had a great time on our tour. Gabriel showed us cool things we wouldn't know about Austin and coached us on ebikes. Ebikes were really fun!
