What To Expect

There are walking tours and there are bus tours, but this unique Segway tour provides an entirely new perspective on the city of Atlanta.

Riding on a Segway isn’t rocket science, but it’s important to know how to maneuver one, especially gliding around a large city like Atlanta. So this tour begins with a brief but thorough training session to make sure everyone feels comfortable and knowledgeable about their Segway. Additionally, all passengers must weigh between 100 and 300 pounds to participate.

With the training out of the way, it’s time to hit the open road.

On this Segway tour around Atlanta, cruise along to the quirky Cabbagetown neighborhood on the city’s east side. This former mill town is now home to amazing artistry and eats—some of the best food in Atlanta, in fact. Continue to the nearby Oakland Cemetery, the oldest cemetery and one of the largest green spaces in Atlanta. Check out the spectacular view of the Atlanta skyline from here.

Then in the Old Fourth Ward is the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, featuring several buildings, including Martin Luther King, Jr.'s childhood home and the original Ebenezer Baptist Church, where he was not only baptized, but also where he and his father were pastors.

Roll through the Inman Park neighborhood, Atlanta's first planned community and one of the nation's first garden suburbs. This U.S. Historic District was also part of the battlefield in the Civil War’s Battle of Atlanta in 1864. Then travel along the Atlanta BeltLine, the former railway corridor around the core of the city that is a model of innovative redevelopment. 

Finally, return to the downtown starting point a lot wiser about Atlanta’s past and present.

Family Fun in the ATL

My family had an amazing time on the 2.5 hr Segway tour with Jeremy yesterday! There was something for everyone—my teen boys got their adventure fix as we sped thorough city, I enjoyed seeing the beautiful homes in Inman and my husband really enjoyed viewing the murals painted by local artist. As an added bonus we learned a lot along the way about the city’s roots, cultural history, and future city growth plans. Jeremy was a great instructor! He made sure we all felt comfortable and were equipped to ride the segways before heading off. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the city’s history and offered recommendations for restaurants and places to visit (you have to try the donuts at The Salty in the Krug district!!). If you’re looking for something to do on a day visit to Atlanta I highly recommend ATL Cruzers. If traffic and parking are a concern try parking at the airport and riding the MARTA into the city
Memorable tour and lots of fun!

I was nervous about riding the segway, but a couple practice laps around the square with Mira’s help and helpful tips made me more comfortable and soon I was riding like a pro! Riding the segway was a lot of fun, and we were able to see so many sites. We went to MLK’s childhood home, his father’s church and the memorial site. The Beltline was such a cool part of the city and the street art is amazing!
Great activity for the family... Tour was great!!!
Joe_M, Jan 2023
Just a wonderful day spent riding the Segway and learning about Historic Atlanta, especially love going through the Martin Luther King area. Jeremy was a fun guide, and really has good knowledge about the area. He also made sure that everyone is safe while riding and enjoying the segway. The staff was great, and Mira was very helpful, and friendly... thank you guys... you've made this a very pleasant experience for us.
Fun!
Julie_R, Jan 2023
Guides were fab! Took a lot of time to train all the people to ride the segways...appreciate the safety concerns but felt like that took away from the total experience, though. Tour amounted to about an hour and a half, that should be designated in the marketing paragraphs. Looked at some cool spots, enjoyed the informational input from our guide. Overall it is very fun and highly recommend!
A fun and interesting tour!
Cassie_V, Nov 2022
Such a great way to explore ATL! Our guides, Cousin and Jett, were fun, friendly and so knowledgeable. They provided great instructions and training before hitting the road, and then provided so much insight into all the places we passed and stopped at. I definitely recommend this experience!
Best tour guides ever!!!!
