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.

Daniel, our tour guide, was fun and knowledgeable about the city. He did a wonderful job showing my 14 year old daughter and myself all the interesting sites in Tampa. We had a super fun time with him. Highlight of our trip to Tampa.
