We booked our tour the same day, and were the only ones riding, so that was kind of nice. Our guide, Michelle, took us all around the area that includes the convention center and the university. We had a lot of fun, and learned a bit about the history of the area, although we kidded Michelle that she seemed to... More

I must admit to a little uneasiness going into this experience. All was unfounded as the operator gave us a quick 20 minute lesson and by the end of the tour we were all pros. Good tour with very interesting stops, routes and terrains. i would definitely do it again. In fact, I'm doing the Tampa tour near he end... More

Wasn't too excited when my boyfriend and I received the 2-hour tour from our kids for Christmas, but boy, was I in for a surprise. At age 64, with serious arthritis pain, I was concerned about not being able to ride these things, but our guide Eric was patient and awesome and soon had all 9 of us zipping along... More

There were six family members that took this tour and four of them had no experience on segways. Michelle, our guide, was very patient and encouraging of these new riders. She did a great job and we would definitely recommend this activity.

My husband and I signed up for the Tampa 10:30 a.m. tour with Bobby as our guide. He was fabulous. I must confess that I was nervous as this was our first experience on a Segway. Out of the eight of us, there was only one woman who had been on one. We were all well above 50-years old. Bobby... More
