On the Magical History Tour, our experienced tour guides will take you on a tremendous Segway journey. We’ll start with the famous downtown area of Galveston – the Strand Historic District. For a time, it was also known as “The Wall Street of the South.”


Magical Galveston History Tour Description

You will pass the Railroad Museum used during prohibition, which was the most infamous era in Galveston’s history. An average of 40,000 people a day got off the train to gamble and visit the “entertainment houses”. At the port of Galveston, you will enjoy the fascinating view while hearing about the horrifying stories about the storm of 1900. The Galvestonians refused to give up. They rebuilt the city against all odds, and the island rose again.

Our next stop contains the largest collection of Victorian homes in America, which once housed the greatest concentration of millionaires in the United States. You will learn how the families built their fortunes while listening to the gossip associated with their rise to wealth. There will be opportunities for taking photographs and videos along the tour with special attention given to The Bishops Palace, The Sacred Heart Cathedral, and the Sealy and Moody Mansions.

The tour will pass the rebuilt Pleasure Pier, which was once the home of the Flagship Hotel. It will end at the sea where you can mingle with the surfers on the Seawall. Of course, you should remember to bring your suntan lotion and sunglasses for this most exciting, history-filled adventure.


  •   We had a great time on our tour. Asa was a wonderful guide. He pointed out things that we never would have noticed on our own. The history he gave us was just as fascinating. Book a tour. You will love it!!

  •   I enjoyed the tour. Would have been better if the riders wore headsets and the tour guide talked into a mic so that all could hear everything that was being said, but overall still a lot of fun.

  •   We just took our 3rd Segway tour in Galveston with SegCity and each ride seemed to get better. We learned so much from Asa and had so much fun riding between sites. We have two teenage boys and they both enjoy the riding as well...More

Our Segway tours are the perfect way to explore the beautiful island.

You don’t need to know how to ride a bike to ride a Segway. Most people that have come on tour with us have never ridden Segways in their life.

In our tours, everyone’s having fun. Join us in the adventure and experience the authentic local flavor of Galveston Island.
