Overview
Experience midtown Atlanta like never before on this educational and entertaining 2.5-hour guided, small-group Segway tour. See central Atlanta’s historic sites, landmarks and architecture on a loop around the city. Visit the elegant homes in Ansley Park; the green spaces of Piedmont Park and the Atlanta Botanical Garden; the restaurant district; plus Centennial Olympic Park, host of the 1996 Olympic games and much more. A guided Segway training session is included. Dress in weather-appropriate clothes with flat, closed-toed shoes.
What to Expect
Cities and towns across America offer walking and bus tours to get to know their space better, but this unique Segway tour provides an entirely new perspective on the city of Atlanta.
Riding a Segway isn’t difficult, but it’s important to know how to maneuver one, especially gliding around a busy city like Atlanta. So this tour begins at the American Hotel with a brief but thorough training session to make sure everyone feels comfortable and knowledgeable about their Segway. Additionally, all passengers must weigh between 100 and 300 pounds to participate.
With the training out of the way, it’s time to hit the open road.
On this 2.5-hour Segway tour around midtown Atlanta, cruise past the business district’s skyscrapers and the affluent neighborhood of Ansley Park to admire the variety of beautiful homes. Then glide through part of popular Piedmont Park, whose history spans the course of nearly two centuries. This 189-acre urban park includes paved walking and biking paths, event space, picnic areas and playgrounds. Not far from here is the beautiful Atlanta Botanical Garden, with 30 acres of plants, art exhibits, fountains and more.
Make a stop at the Margaret Mitchell House and Museum, a historic house museum where Margaret Mitchell wrote the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Gone With the Wind. Across the street is the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, the sixth Federal Reserve District comprising Alabama, Florida, Georgia, parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Also nearby is the Georgia Institute of Technology, one of the world's top technological research universities.
Roll past the Fox Theater, a former movie palace that now serves as a performing arts venue and the restaurant district, to learn where the best spots are to eat and drink. Then see Centennial Olympic Park, home of the 1996 Summer Olympics; the Georgia Aquarium, with tens of thousands of animals and 10 million gallons of water and the World of Coca-Cola, a museum showcasing the history of the Coca-Cola Company with a number of attractions and entertainment options.
Finally, return to the downtown starting point, the American Hotel.

As the other answers have stated it’s at the American Hotel. You face the main entrance then face right then walk to the back.
