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.

Wonderful Family Experience
Lori_L, Apr 2024
We had a couple of nervous family members to start our day; however, they were soon converted and scooting around like have been on a Segway for years. The instructor took the time to ensure everyone was generally comfortable in the parking lot and then made a point of having one of our family members right next to him (who was still a bit nervous). He was constantly reassuring and soon everyone was having a great time. The riding was more fun for the kids than most of the commentary but the adults enjoyed learning about local restaurants and some history. We would recommend this tour to any of our friends.
Great for Segway first-timers!

Great segway tour for a first timer! Got a good feel of Scottsdale downtown with a short break in between to explore
Well worth the time
stixx3, Nov 2023
Kyle and Jayce thank you so much for an awesome tour and making my BFF feel super comfortable on the Segway. I highly recommend not only the tour guides but the establishment as well. They show a video before you even get onto the machine. Then you go outside after you put on your helmet and your headphones. They take one by one through the "how to" process to ensure you are comfortable with driving it. Throughout the tour Kyle was always looking out for safety. They stopped and took pictures and let us walk around to check things out. So much history that I didn't even realize even after living here for 20 yrs. Awesome afternoon. Try them out
Good price great fun
Elaine_H, Oct 2023
It was so much fun. I was nervous at first, but quickly relaxed. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable. So impressed. The only improvement I would make is maybe taking like a 30 minute break to get lunch or shop.
Surprise Birthday family fun!
Rhonda_P, Apr 2023
Surprised my sister for her birthday with this Segway tour. Noah, our guide, was very knowledgeable of sights in the area. He also made sure everyone was safe when crossing streets. He also knew to best photo ops.We had a blast!

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.
Amazing!

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!
Great Time!
Christianne_W, Mar 2021
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!
Diane_H, Mar 2021

Slightly scary
Lena_O, Dec 2020
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!!
Great segway tour,
lokoko3898, Nov 2019
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.
