On Good Friday 2018, our family drove from Dallas to take a Cowtown Segway tour. Throughout our planning/scheduling and the tour itself, the owner, Tim Ballard, was responsive, courteous, gregarious, and accommodating. He also made Ft. Worth's history interesting. Moreover, he showed remarkable flexibility by providing a tour combining elements of both his downtown and river walk tour, including being more than generous with his time in order to tailor a hybrid tour to meet the divergent tastes of his nine guests.Visitors from Dallas might appreciate Cowtown Segway's downtown location is within walking distance of Ft. Worth's train station. The cost of tours is comparable to horseback riding for an equal length of time, but without the days of soreness afterwards. Furthermore, greenhorns need not fear the Segway. Cowtown Segway provides ample safety equipment, training, and water for any rookie before your tour's departure. Our guide even photographed the group throughout the tour, and then shared those photos with each party within our group via AirDrop.NOTE TO FAMILIES: Riders must be 8 years old and over 60lbs (Our son was 58.8 lbs in stocking feet. With shoes and a water bottle in his pocket, he was just over 60lbs, though the tour company did not weigh him.). I will say our guide was very conscientious about looking out for both or our kids (ages 10 & 8). Both were allowed to drive themselves, including down the middle of busy streets between Sundance Square and the Court House. However, the guide did keep a hand on my son's handle bars when crossing busy intersections.
This was AWESOME!!! My family had the BEST time with Tim today. I HIGHLY recommend this activity!
This was a high quality Segway tour! We went all around Fort Worth: near Trinity River, the Flat Iron building, a JFK memorial, and much more. Our tour guide was very personable and informative on our journey. Worth it!
Great downtown and Trinity tour by Tim with our family of 7. Fun ride and local history education.
Awesome, awesome time. Great company, pleasantly surprised about Fort Worth facts I didn’t know. Looking forward to another tour.
Tim made my wife and my "mini vacation" to Cowtown a blast. Learning to ride the Segway took about 15 seconds and was much easier than I thought it would be. I learned some interesting things about Fort Worth and what fun things there are to do in the downtown Sundance Square area. You have to try the Jalapeno Margaritas! Tanks Tim for making our trip to Fort Worth a blast!
Had an amazing time! Our teenage son thought it was awesome! Tim, the owner and our tour guide was great, very knowledgable and super fun! Would definitely do it again!
Had an absolute blast! My daughter's last day in Texas before heading back to school in North Carolina and we asked her what she wanted to do. She selected Cowtown Segway Tours and we booked it. BEST decision ever!
I'm 66 (never been on a Segway) and went with my son and grandkids - all experienced Segwayers. Tim was excellent in how he taught me to use it though and within minutes I actually felt comfortable enough to charge on out! It was the most fun thing I've ever done with my son and grandkids; they all had a great time as well. You are seriously missing out if you do not take one of these tours. Worth every cent and is something you will not forget!
My son, 2 grandkids and myself (66 years old) went on the tour. They were experienced segwayer's but I was not and was a bit apprehensive. Tim did a wonderful job of showing me what to do, and he also was kind enough to keep an eye on me during the entire tour and come to my assistance when I needed a little help. I was surprised though at how easy it was to learn, even at my age. Tim gave us the grand tour; he was very knowledgeable of Fort Worth history - it was all very interesting. Even my son and grandkids, who have all done alot, thought it was so much fun. Overall, this is definitely a must do for anyone and every family. Worth every penny and was an experience we will not forget. Thanks Tim!!!
We took a tour for our 12th wedding anniversary and had a great time! Tim is an excellent guide and instructor. He made learning to ride the Segway easy and had a ton of information on Fort Worth that I didn't know - and I've lived here my entire life! We had so much fun that we wound up buying five (5) Segway miniPROs and one miniLITE. Highly recommended!
Really recommend Cowtown Segway! My co-workers and I enjoyed the Best of Both Worlds Tour. Was a little pricey but everyone had a great time.. Tim taught us some things about Fort Worth we never knew. We will be back!
Tim is awesome! So much fun, and very informative. We did the sunset tour, it was beautiful! Thank you Tim, for a wonderful and very entertaining evening!
What fun! We had the privilege of having an old friend visit us for Thanksgiving. The Segway Tour with Tim Ballard was the highlight of our visit. Once you get the hang of the Segway, which only takes about 10 minutes, they are so much fun. Tim is super knowledgeable about Fort Worth history. This is truly great fun and learning all at the same time. I can't suggest this activity enough! Tim, thanks for a great time!
Our family just took a tour with Tim at CST this afternoon. It was AMAZING!! Tim is so knowledgeable about Fort Worth and the history of Cowtown, we learned a TON! And the TOUR itself...well, it was so much fun! The segways are a blast to ride (you get great instruction!) and you cover a lot of area! Tim has a great personality. He's nice, engaging, and FUN!! If you're even slightly considering a tour with CST, DO IT! You'll be SO GLAD you did! �
We were in town visiting my son and decided to try the Segway tour. We had a great time! Tim is not only very informational but entertaining as well. Highly recommend it!
Very fun and enjoyable experience! Tour guide is very knowledgeable and kept the tour fun. Not to mention the Segways! They are very fun to ride! Tour guide also takes some great group shots!
I have had two tours with Tim. Both times, he rolled out the red carpet for us and gave us royal treatment! I learned new Fort Worth tidbits and had a blast! Tim is very knowledgeable and personable! A guide will make or break any tour. Tim makes this tour fantastic! If you have not gone on a Cowtown Segway Tour, you need to make the time to do it! I highly recommend it!
What a great experience for my family and friend visiting Fort Worth. Tim the owner is accommodating, helpful and provides a wonderful service. Nathan is a great tour guide and made everyone feel comfortable and confident riding the Segway. And believe me there were some in our group of 10 that had never been on a Segway. We are booking the tour again next month. We would never book with anyone else. Thank you cowtown for doing an outstanding job!
Our family had a great time with #cowtownsegwaytours last night!! We are Fort Worth locals but wanted a fun way to spend an afternoon and learn more about our GREAT city!! Thank you Nate for a fantastic tour complete with fun facts, an exciting ride, and some great family pics!! We loved every minute of it!!
Jason and I went on this tour when we were in Ft Worth and loved it! Tim is a great tour guide!!
Awesome fun. Guide is very knowledgeable. I learned a lot, and I am from Dallas/Ft. Worth.
This was a fantastic experience! I would recommend locals come out and do this too!!
This was the best tour! Tim was very knowledgeable, entertaining and made this experience so much fun! I would highly recommend Cowtown Segway to anyone!
My fiancé and I segway all over the world but this tour by far has been the best experience we've ever had! They truly go above and beyond for the customer! We purchased from another company in the same area 3 days prior only to learn that day that the company went out-of-business w/o informing customers. Cowtown graciously booked a tour for us the same day and even discounted our ticket for the other company's inconvenience. They spent extra time with my son; a first timer w/o shortening tour
