Overview

An incredible SEGWAY TOUR journey will take you to an unique and inspiring part of Galveston's story.Once home to more millionaires than New York City it is now one of the largest examples of 19th century Victorian living in the nation. Cruise along the sea-wall, visit the incredible tree carvings from the lost oaks of hurrican Ike, journey through the magnificent mansions of the past or enjoy the evening breeze as the sun sets.

Guide was very friendly and informative. He knew the history of Galveston and was very good with our 9 year old Grand-daughter. She adapted quickly and loved it. We are hoping to do another ride before we leave. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.. THANK YOU!!

We did a 30 minute tour of the strand area. It was so much fun! Our tour guide, John Paul was very knowledgeable, fun and interesting. We definitely plan on doing it again. Maybe the ghost tour next.

Nice if you want to ride a Segway. Otherwise, bike or drive with Google. The tour takes you thru the historic east end and Strand area.
