Flagstaff Segway Tour

1. Flagstaff Segway Tour

Pass over the historic Route 66, the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad, as well as the Historic Beale wagon road. Continue into a small historic neighborhood before entering Northern Arizona University. Once on NAU campus the tour enjoys wide pedestrian paths through a beautiful mix of architecture and landscape. The tour explores the majority of campus before returning into the Historic Downtown Flagstaff district. While passing through the Historic Downtown Flagstaff, pass over the exact spot Forrest Gump stepped in mess while running across the country! As the tour moves into the adjacent neighborhoods the guide will point out parks, trails, and other things to do that are not obvious to the casual visitor. The tour continues through the neighborhood and arrives at the Old Town Spring, which is the settlement site of the first pioneers of Flagstaff. Old Town is located directly beneath Lowell Observatory and the tour will enjoy excellent views of the telescopes and campus. After Old Town comes the historic flag pole which was erected to celebrate Independence Day and eventually became the naming point of the city. Saving the best for last the tour will finally pass the Francis Short pond, which is a beautiful hidden pond with birds, ducks, and kids fishing. The smells and sounds on this section of the tour is considered by many to be the hidden gem of Flagstaff. The tour will continue through the neighborhood concluding back at the shop approximately two hour after departure.

This was such a fun and informative experience. This was my first time on a Segway and it was very easy to learn. By far, the best decision I made for something to do in Flagstaff. Beautiful scenery and a great tour guide to boot! He was very friendly and I felt very safe doing something new with him. I highly recommend this adventure!

Blake did a great job on the tour and was super cool and very patient through the whole tour. We had a couple incidents and he was okay with it and made us feel comfortable the whole time.

This is a great fun way to see Flagstaff. I highly recommend. Riding a segway is alot easier than I thought. Blake, the guide, does a fantastic job and he is very knowledgable

Awesome tour guide. Very nice and knew his history of the area. Fun, interesting and well worth the cost.

Great tour and Blake was very informative about the history of flagstaff.
