After making your own way to downtown Austin, meet your guide and receive an introduction to the Segway.

Have time to practice the controls for the Segway, then follow your guide into Austin’s streets once you are ready, which generally takes only a few minutes.

Your guide shows your hotels and buildings that are rumored to be haunted and shares their ghostly histories. You'll also stop by landmarks including the The Texas State Capitol Building — an Italian Renaissance Revival-style building with 22 acres (8 hectares) of gardens, Lady Bird Lake, and the165-foot (50 m) high Moonlight Towers, one of the world's only remaining light towers.

Stop at the Congress Avenue Bridge to look for residents of North America’s largest urban bat colony: about 2 million Mexican free-tailed bats that migrate every year to the southwestern United States from central Mexico.

You'll also pass through the 6th Street Entertainment District and hear about Austin's lively music and arts scene. Have time to stop along the way for great photo ops of the highlights of the Texas capital.

My daughter and I loved this! Robbie, our guide was fantastic! He had lots of great info on all the tour stops and kept things fun. The segways were tricky at first but the staff helped us get comfy with them and made sure we were prepared before we left. We spent several hours zipping around Austin and had a blast! We’d do it again in a heartbeat!

Seeing the bats fly off at sunset was very cool. The Ghost stories were fun. The city needs to clean up the littered electric scooters left on the sidewalks.

Was a nice tour bats were not in full swing as it was early in the year. Our guide was good getting us through the site as the north by northwest festival was going on.

It was a fun way to run through the city. Riding the segway takes good balance but can be figured out by most- especially my 14 yr old. Guide was a good dude and told some good stories. Bats had already migrated so missed that pary. Overall good experience.
