There is not a better time to be had in Tampa. Come and experience the fun and adventure to be had riding your very own Segway I2 personal transporter through beautiful downtown Tampa and its surrounding islands. Admire the sun setting over the water, dolphins playing and even a few celebrity homes as you whiz about on a Segway personal transporter.

What a great experience! Our guide was fun and energetic and very patient with us as first time riders. She was flexible about adapting the tour to include things we might be interested in and provided good narration along the way. Would definitely do again!

We recently moved to Tampa and a visit from my mother inspired us to do some sightseeing. I had heard someone local mention a Segway tour, so I looked it up and found Magic Carpet Glide. I read online that the age cutoff is 12 years old. We have a 12-year-old and 10-year-old, and I didn't want our 10-year-old to... More

I've lived in Sarasota my whole life and learned tons about the area that I had never before seen. Picked up tons of new restaurants and new spots for a night out on the town. The segways themselves are fun to ride and is something new to try and experience. I am definitely going again to see other parts of... More

I ended up in Tampa on a business trip with time to spare so was looking to do something a little different. I came across a Segway operator offering tours. This is definitely not cultural but a hell of a lot of fun. I approached the Segway with a certain amount of trepidation but after some great instruction it was... More

Treat yourself to a GREAT time. The guide was awesome and knowledgeable about the area. Learning to use the Segway was pretty easy and a lot of fun. Can't wait to do it again!

I've done several Segway tours and I love them, but this one was especially awesome for me. This time, I brought my cousin with me. She'd never done a Segway before and even after practice, was not comfortable. I thought for sure we wouldn't be able to go but our tour guide - and company owner - literally tugged my... More

Never been on a Segway before and we were all a little nervous, but without cause it turned out. After a very nervy lesson, we all picked it up really quickly in a party from 13yrs to 53 yrs of age. Aaron, our guide was excellent. We took the sunset tour in Tampa at 5.30 and would highly recommend it.... More

We took the late afternoon tour at the St. Petersburg location. Our tour guide Tom, was nothing short of fantastic! He showed us all around the beautiful downtown waterfront area. He was very friendly, entertaining, and knowledgeable! This is a must do for anyone visiting St. Petersburg!

Great tour of Tampa's River walk was great to see on a segway, with a great tour guide Jeff. Informative about the city.
