There’s estimated to be a colony of around 1.5-million Mexican free-tailed bats that migrate to Austin each year, and this tour takes you to a great spot for viewing them. Save time walking between sites, and cover more ground with a Segway tour. This means, as well as the bats, there’s time to see other interesting sights and landmarks such as Pfluger Pedestrian Bridge, the Austin Rocks boutique, the Willie Nelson Statue, and Congress Avenue Bridge.
  • See one of the biggest urban colonies of bats in North America
  • No experience required—enjoy a Segway training station at the start

Fun family adventure! Kelsie was a great guide. We toured the city and learned quite a bit. We decided to do this tour at the beginning of our vacation so we would have ideas of where to go. We are looking forward to some local shopping!

We really had a lot of fun on the Segway tour. Kelsey did a fabulous joy teaching us how to ride a Segway. He’s knowledge about Austin was impressive and watching the bats flight was exciting. I highly recommend Bat Flight Segway experience for the whole family.
