We provide Segway tours of Austin with a focus on fun! Our highly sought after historical guided tours are conducted with Segways after you are comfortable. Each tours begin with a group orientation followed by one-on-one hands on training with the Segway.

We were the first Segway tour company to set up shop in Austin back in 2004 and remain the only local Segway tour with a single market focus. Our desire is to conduct safe yet educational experiences for every group no matter how big or small. Our local Austin guides average 5 years experience and truly enjoy showing guests around the city on the Segways.

Come experience a memorable tour for yourself!

Shay was an awesome tour guide and we enjoyed hearing Austins history and sight seeing from segways! My cousin visited all the way from Philadelphia and he made sure to show her a big Texas time! He encouraged us to stop and go in the historic hotel, famous VooDoo donut shop, & The Capitol! He snapped a ton of photos... More

Jason, our guide, led us through the streets of Austin with stops for telling us interesting facts about the city. He pointed out several landmarks. This was our first Segway ride, at first, you might be a bit unsteady, but by the end of the tour, we were both "experts". One thought, we needed less time at the Capitol than... More

This was our first time to Austin but we have used Segways in other large cities. We were pleased to learn they allowed our 12 and 14 year old daughters to ride because most companies require kids to be at least 16 or 18 years old. We had a great time with Jason. Unfortunately, the state capital was extremely packed... More

Jason took us on a fantastic tour through downtown Austin. Our family of 5 (kids 17, 14, 11) had a great introduction to the city and our friend (a five year Austin resident) learned new things about her city as well. Segway-driving was easy to pick up and we had tons of fun. Highly recommend for families, especially when the... More

My 10-year-old nephew was in Austin to visit and I wanted to take him on a Segway tour. However, the other tour groups have a minimum age requirement of 13-14. Gliding Revolution's 60-pound requirement in place of an age requirement allowed him to join the tour, which makes sense because kids these days are often better at riding things like... More

Best part of our trip to Austin!! It was myself and my 3 teenage daughters. Since it was their first time on a Segway, Jason took the time to ensure they were comfortable "driving" before setting off on our tour. Thank goodness I selected the 2 hour tour vs 1 hour tour because my girls did not want the tour... More
