What To Expect
Make your own way to the designated meeting point in Scottsdale to meet your guide.
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.

Very knowledgeable tour guide. He’s a wonderful ambassador for the city! I was scared, honestly. Thought I might hurt myself. The guide really made me feel comfortable & we learned a lot about the area.
Benjamin_O, Dec 2021
Our tour guide was awesome. Knew so much about the area. Great idea to find new restaurants while visiting and the Segways are really fun. I’m gonna buy one now!

Perry was a great great tour guide, he was very knowledgeable about all the history where our tour was in Scottsdale. Perry was also a great teacher on the Segway, we will do it again if we come back to Scottsdale.
Very fun and great tour!
Jason_S, Apr 2021
Our guide was very informative and made the whole tour interesting to go along with just riding a Segway. They do a great job of making sure that you’re comfortable on the Segway before riding which was good. Definitely wear something comfortable on your feet, which does not have to be closed toed shoes. Our family had so much fun riding those things through the streets of Old Town!

Our guide was fabulous! He helped us learn how to ride them(I'm not as coordinated as my daughter!) and gave us a great tour of Downtown Scottsdale. I'm from AZ but I still learned a lot and had so much fun. I went with my sister who lives in PHX and my daughter and we had a blast! Highly recommend the tour and our tour guide.
Great way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon!

Learning to ride and the video which was scary. New experience and it was nice to see old town Scottsdale but I was really tense the whole time. If I would have been taught how to get off I would not have been so scared.
The Best Introduction to Old Scottsdale
Rachel_G, Oct 2020
We were only in Scottsdale for a few days and took this tour to get a quick introduction and overview of Old Scottsdale. I was not expecting it to be so extensive and educational!!! We learned about the history of the city, the spring training sites, identified many good restaurants and shopping sights, and had fun doing it! Michael was our guide - excellent job!!

My friend and I had a wonderful time on our Scottsdale tour. Our tour guide, Devin, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the area. We received enough training before we went-along with warnings of what not to do. It is well worth the time.

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...
Eileen_D, Mar 2018
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!
Awesome tour, recommend it to all...

Kevin C, Aug 2017
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...
Cindy W, Aug 2017
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

Rolf N, Aug 2017
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!
