What You Can Expect
Absolutely the best way to see Austin. Great tour
Hugo was very knowledgeable and a great instructor. Two kids who had never done a Segway and all around town wuth zero problems
Wonderful experience. Hugo gave us just what we asked for. We ended up being the only family on the tour, so he tailored the tour to better fit our teenagers, which meant finding them lots a areas they could just roam around and have fun and get used to riding the Segway, with just enough history to keep the grown ups interested. Since my son is studying architecture, he even took us to a historic hotel and stayed with the stuff so that we could all look around inside. This trip was well worth booking and I'm so glad we booked it instead of the cheesy ghost tour which our boys would have thought was silly. Thanks again to Hugo for being a great guide.
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!!
We had a great time, our tour guide was fun, informative and flexible. Great way to see the city and experience something new. Easy to ride - no coordination needed !
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. :)
