Our story began when Cowtown Segway Tours was created by Paul and Eric in 2007. Eric was the owner of Texas Segway Sales and Repair Shop over in Hurst and Paul was the idea guy. They put their heads together and set up their Segway tours in the heart of Fort Worth. We offer the same tours today and are the original Segway Tour Company in Fort Worth.
Today, Cowtown Segway is owned by Tim Ballard, an native of Arlington, just 15 minutes from downtown Fort Worth. Tim has worked in Fort Worth for the past 20 years and loves it with all of his heart. He took over as Operations Manager on September 1, 2015 and took over ownership on January 29, 2016.
It all started when he didn’t get a position with a division of Medtronic after 3 1/2 months and 12 interviews. Discouraged, his girlfriend’s mother invited him on a Segway Tour. He had a great time and the tour guide told him she thought he’d be great at this and asked if he’d like to help them out while interviewing. Next thing Tim knew, he was hooked!
