The Segways were a blast! Our instructor / tour guide was entertaining and informative. It was a fun way to see the beaches even though I'm a former local. Definitely recommend this!

Met for a 1:00 tour. After a training intro making us comfortable on the Segways, off we went down the beach. What a wonderful day! Plenty of info to keep us informed about Santa Barbara, and Ivar and Mariah were fabulous guides. Saw beautiful views of Butterfly Beach, and felt safe throughout the adventure. Plenty of opportunities for pictures. Just... More

This was our first time on Segways so were a little apprehensive. Our guide, Iver, provided excellent training which put us at ease. He was patient and made sure everyone was comfortable before we actually started the tout. They provide portable radios so it is easy to hear the commentary. Iver is extremely knowledgeable about Santa Barbara and was fun... More

Good, long informative ride. Darin our guide gave us a special treat by introducing us to famous architect, Jeff Shelton. Actually in spite of praising him on his tours he had never met Shelton and had never been in the Ablitt house but on this tour he got both.

I always say that I am willing to do anything once, and if I don't like it; I don't have to do it again. Segway SB is something I would totally do again. I can't wait to go back! If I can, I want my tour to be with Tim again; he was such a fun and down-to-earth tour guide.... More

We made our way down the coast and stopped in a new town every few days. The Segway tour was a great way to get an overview of the city. Iver made it a blast. If you're nervous about Segways don't be. The tutorial and practice time at the beginning of the tour explained them thoroughly and the practice time... More

My wife and I visited Santa Barbara over the 4th of July weekend. We took the 2 hour tour and had an awesome time. Our guide was very informative and funny. If you have not tried Segway riding give it a try.

My sister and I went to Santa Barbara to begin the celebrating. We booked the tour and Tim was our guide. It was just the three of us. He was fun, friendly and fantastic! Best 2.5 hours of our day. We'd do it again in a heartbeat!
