5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

The tour itself was lots of fun with Juan. He was very helpful and got my husband past him falling during training. The Segway is a fun way to get around a city and I would recommend it to anyone. We had an issue since my husband fell before the tour began but Juan coaxed him into continuing on and my husband was very happy that he did though we ended up in the ER later that evening to find out he broke his elbow.

First time trying out a Segway. Juan was an excellent instructor and tour guide. Great way to take a quick tour of the city. Austin is a very cool city. I would move there if it wasn't so hot!

This was a great tour. We had some scheduling issues and the guys worked with us and helped us rearrange everything. It showed us a lot of downtown Austin and the guide pointed out some great places to visit. Would definitely recommend!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

The highest rating was for our tour guide, who didn't just drag us along on. Chris was great, and tailored the tour to meet our family's needs. There was a lot to see, and we could not have done this with my dad (who has limited mobility) as a walking tour. If you've ever wanted to see someplace but didn't like making your way through busy streets like a salmon swimming upstream, the Segway gives you enough height and clearance that you can see what you want to see.

Warning...I myself am in good health, but because of an old injury that makes it hard to stand in one place for long periods, by the end of the tour I couldn't wait to sit down as my feet were nearly numb. There were plenty of stops to rest, but make no mistake...it is exercise. :)

Unfornately due to Tropical Storm Bill out tour was put on hold. I am still waiting to receive the certificate for future use due to the storm. Juan was very helpful and worked things out so he gets a top Bravo Zulu for being customer focused during a difficult situation!!!! 10/10 for Juan!
