While not the greatest Segway Tour we've ever done, its still almost impossible to not make one a lot of fun. Sanibel is very anti development which is great for the last ones in but doesn't provide a whole lot of impressive sights for the tour. You do get to see the southern shore and the beautiful bridge and eastern shore along with some fun birds in the Periwinkle Trailer Park. Just a note this trailer park to a normal trailer park is like the Metropolitan Museum of Art to a bunch of pictures on a string along the road. Even this place is neat as a pin as is all Sanibel. We even got to free style which is always a lot of fun.I get the feeling Sanibel is not real crazy about the Segways, but I guarantee them this is the only reason we brought four other people over her to eat and spend money. They need to relax a little and let people have some fun.

The tour was great. John our guide, did a tremendous job explaining the history of Sanibel Island. The segway ride was easy yet so educational. John taught us about the vegetation, trees, and we visited a rescue spot..for parrots,various wildlife and a host of other birds. We will do it again on our next visit to Sanibel Island.

I took the Segway tour with my niece and nephew and we had a great time. You are in a small group of up to 6 people and have a guide that will take you around the island. I can't remember our guide's name, but he was very friendly and made sure we were all comfortable with the Segways. He also took pictures along the way of us and they were available for download on their website later that afternoon. This was great because it was difficult to take pictures while on the Segway (at least for me it was :) ).

My only suggestion would be to find an area where we could "freestyle" on our own a bit so we could get up to full speed, etc.

If you have never Segwayed, we definitely recommend. My wife and I had a great time. Segway was easy to learn and is a great way to see the island. Our tour guide (John) was wonderful. We are so glad we did this. Very enjoyable.

My husband and I took the Segway tour at the beginning of our trip to Sanibel and it remained one of our favorite parts! The tour was fun, informative, and through. Don't fear the segways, they are easy to use and they give you a thorough lesson before leaving for the tour. We got back and were ready to go again!
