Start off with a detailed orientation to the Segway, and have time to practice and get comfortable with the controls. After a few minutes, most people feel comfortable maneuvering this fun and eco-friendly transportation device.

When you’re ready, step onto your Segway and follow your guide across Soleri Bridge, designed by Italian architect Paolo Soleri, a student of the American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The pedestrian-only bridge features 64-foot-high steel pylons that act as a sundial, and a spacious waterfront plaza for a community gathering place.

Glide through the waterfront area and check out public art installations along the way, then head into the Arts District. Your guide points out art galleries, outdoor sculptures and contemporary Native American art. Then cruise by the Scottsdale Historical Museum, which is housed in the former Little Red Schoolhouse, built in 1909 for the education of early Scottsdale residents.

Next up, see Scottsdale's first United States post office, now home to Porter’s Western Store. Pass other historic buildings including the Roald Amundsen Pullman Private Railroad Car, built in 1928 and part of the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park. See Farmer’s State Bank, now the Rusty Spur Saloon, and other highlights of Old Town before your tour returns to your starting point at the end of two hours.

We loved the Segway tour of Scottsdale. We were novice Segway riders and arrived at our departure location a bit anxious. The guides did a great job with a safety video, safety equipment and practice in the parking lot. By the time we hit the road riding seemed intuitive and very safe. We covered a lot of Old Scottsdale and enjoyed the narration delivered on our personal earphones. I'd recommend the tour to anyone looking for a new and fun way to explore a vacation destination.

This Segway tour was so much fun! They provided an excellent safety video, and plenty of practice time in the parking lot. I was amazed at how quickly we adapted to riding the Segways. We covered a large area of Scottsdale, saw many beautiful community highlights, with great historical commentary by our guide Tyler. I look forward to my next Segway experience!

we both really enjoyed our tour. Your feet may get a little sore but it was well worth it. I am over 60 and our guide said I was a natural. We will do this again if we ever get a chance.

A great way to see Old Town Scottsdale, especially in the heat! We did this tour in the evening, when the temps were a bit lower. Cameron was a great tour guide ... very knowledgeable and energetic. We all learned a lot about Scottsdale thanks to Cameron! The only downside was that it became dark very early, so it was difficult to see some of the sites. We would highly recommend this tour, and you shouldn't be worried if you've never been on a segway before. There were just enough instructions, and you get an opportunity to practice a bit before heading out. In no time at all, we were all pros! Thanks Cameron for a great evening ... and for showing us Scottsdale's best artwork, The Doors and the LOVE sculpture. We LOVE Old Town Scottsdale! The Ward Family from Hamilton, ON Canada

Cameren was our guide. He was fantastic and enlightened us to all the spots in Scottsdale to go, some History, and his knowledge of the desert keep us entertained as well. It's a lot of fun and they train you well before you get on the Segway, so it's pretty easy and fun! I live in Phoenix, AZ, my sister NY and I would do it again when I have anyone visiting. Thanks for a great time Segway!

My first Segway tour. I was nervous. I'm overweight and thought - oh boy! But it went smoothly. Our guide kept us moving along and I was very very happy that he kept me right by him in case I needed help. He also made sure the other more experienced riders had fun as well. A nice balance no pun intended. I would say - step out of your box and try it!

A wonderful experience! The Segway was fun and very easy to master. It only took about 5 minutes or so of practice to get the hang of it. Our guide was especially attentive to the safety aspects of the equipment and our tour.
Sadly, I did not get the full advantage of the tour due to the lack of available headphones for the participants. It was near impossible to hear the guide's commentary.Though I must say that he did the best that he could given the circumstances.
I was appreciative of his taking the time to take a photo of me.
Viewing Old Scottsdale on a Segway is definitely the way to go. I've recommended the tour to my friends and even long time residents of Phoenix that I know.
ps. I enjoyed the Segway so much that I am considering buying one.

Best travel tip we ever got- Do a Segway Tour. So much fun! Our tour guide Chris was so chill and calm that all us 1st timers had no reason to be worried. Highlights of shops, restaurants, area history and sights! So worth it- definitely will do again!

This was so much fun, I didn't want it to end!
Chris was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide, he shared Scottsdale history as well as useful information about the area. The Segway was easier to maneuver than I expected, if you can stand, you can Segway.
I definitely recommend this experience/tour. I will do it again the next time I'm in the area!
