Combine the fun of touring Austin by Segway with the thrill of seeing the legendary bat colony of the Congress Avenue Bridge take flight at dusk. Your expert guide instructs you on Segway operations before taking you on an unforgettable tour of Austin’s downtown. See the State Capitol building, Moonlight Towers, the Sixth Street Historic District and more as you cruise through this lively city. Learn from your guide about Austin's history, entertainment scene, and of course, the amazing bats, on this informative and entertaining Segway tour.
Meet your guide at the shop in Austin Food Park and start with a detailed orientation on how to use a Segway. Practice to get familiar with the controls, and once you are comfortable, follow your guide into Austin’s streets.

Glide towards your tour’s main destination: the Congress Avenue Bridge, home to North America’s largest urban bat colony. During spring and summer around dusk, the bats make their nightly appearance as they leave the colony to hunt for food. Witness the beauty of 1.5 million bats taking flight!

The Austin bat colony is comprised of Mexican free-tailed bats that migrate from central Mexico to the southwestern USA every spring. The misunderstood creatures were initially feared, until wildlife experts explained that bats benefit the city by eating up to 20,000 pounds of insects every night, including agricultural pests, and they are harmless to humans if left undisturbed. Nowadays, the city considers them part of the community; it's a popular sight to see among locals and visitors alike.

Your guide shares more fascinating facts about the bats as you marvel at the cloud of tiny winged mammals for about 20 minutes.

On your journey to and from the bridge, cruise by several Austin landmarks. See the grandiose 19th-century Texas State Capitol building, then buzz by the 165-foot-tall (50 m) Moonlight Towers, thought to be the only remaining light towers in the world.

Continue past the Paramount Theatre, a staple of Austin entertainment for more than 100 years, and zip through the Sixth Street Historic District. Stop at the Angelina Eberley statue to hear your guide talk about the legendary protest of this Austin heroine.

After about 1.5 hours, your guide returns you to your starting point to end your tour.
