Less prone to explosions, bird collisions, and painful butt-burns, the Segway has edged out the jetpack as the official ride of the 23rd century. Today's Groupon gives you the chance to practice on these leisurely chariots of fire lest the future overtake you at 12.5 miles per hour: for $32, you get an executive tour of downtown Austin from Segway Nation (a $65 value).

Segway Nation feeds the eyes with a scenic smorgasbord of downtown Austin sites while easing the demands on feet with a smooth segway ride. Segway Nation's most popular wheelromp, the 2.5-hour executive tour explores the capital city's rich cultural past, present, and future in a journey filled with motorized mirth and frame-worthy photo opportunities. Carting through history, two-wheeled cavaliers will marvel at the architecture of the state capitol building and tickle the ghosts of The Driskill Hotel. A breezy bustle through the Sixth Street music district sends sweet sounds beating across the eardrums, before a jaunt through the tony Warehouse District offers helpful storage ideas for unwieldy Winnebagos. Other sights include the Congress Avenue bridge, the city's newest skyscrapers, Town Lake, and scores of Willie Nelson’s ex-girlfriends. The tour comes full circle with a final romp back to the capitol, where tour takers can challenge lobbyists to unevenly matched races before exchanging tearful goodbyes with segway steeds.

The executive tour is offered twice a day, seven days a week. Morning tours start at 9 a.m., and afternoon tours roll out at 4 p.m.

Nation Tours, Inc.

Nation Tours, Inc. lets people explore Texas's rich history and culture seven days a week while aboard self-balancing vehicles. Rolling through Austin's past, their guides spin tales of prominent landmarks such as the Texas State Capitol building and Lady Bird Lake. These adventures echo in San Antonio, where Segways travel 6 times each day through The Alamo and Houston Street. In Dallas, convoys also leave 6 times daily and zip past historic sites such as Dealey Plaza, Thanksgiving Square, newly built Victory Park, the 6th Floor Museum where Lee Harvey Oswald fired at JFK, the Dallas Maverick's American Airline's Arena, and The JFK Memorial. When night falls across either city, tours send a spooky chill down sightseers' spines during their signature City Lights Ghost tour. Depending on the tour, various other sites may include: the haunted Menger Hotel, the Tower of the Americas, one of the oldest cathedrals in America, the San Fernando Cathedral, HemisFair Park, the River Walk, and San Antonio's La Villita art village. Segways zip across each city's haunted locations, outrunning ghosts who don't have the physical weight to lean their Segways forward.

Customer Reviews

First time riding a segway and really enjoyed it. They take the time to give you a short introduction one on one to riding the segway so if you've never done it and are nervous, don't let that stop you. Once you're on it for about 15 minutes, it will feel natural and you'll get to just enjoy riding and seeing the sites. Highly recommended!
