We went on a segway tour of Santa Barbara. Our guide was Iver Petersen. I and my two daughters (19 and 17) participated on the tour. We had a grand time Iver was a wonderful guide and we learned a great deal about the area. The tour lasted a little over an hour and a half. Learning to ride the... More

I went to school in Santa Barbara and lived downtown for year about 20 years so I'm familiar with the city. That said I still learned a ton a new information about a city I love. Our tour guide, Iver, was great! You can tell he loves his job which makes the tour all that much more enjoyable. I would... More

Went with a group of friends this past weekend, three of us were local and one from out of town and we all LOVED it. We had Iver as our tour guide and he was so patient, knowledgeable and hilarious. One of my friends, I won't mention any names (ELLIE) was a little scared at first and Iver helped her... More

My sister and I had Iver all to ourselves on our tour to Butterfly Beach--so lucky! Iver is great fun and very informative but don't let all that humor fool you. This was our first time on a Segway and he made sure we were safe and comfortable. The Segways were an excellent way to enjoy the gorgeous beaches and... More

Over the past few years we have taken Segway tours all over the country. We have found them to be an enjoyable way to see a large part of an area in a relatively short time. Segway of Santa Barbara was, hands down, the best tour we have done!!! Robert was our tour guide and we found him to be... More

We had a crew of 5 people, a few who were not excited to do a Segway tour and were just talked into it. But Iver is great, personable and a larger than life personality. The segways are fun probably more fun than most people expect and it's a very interactive tour. By the end everyone was smiling even the... More

This was our second Segway rental and it just gets better. They are so easy to learn how to ride. Like they say, it is like riding a bike, you never forget. Anyway, we were fortunate to get a GREAT guide- IVER. He has a happy, fun loving and humorous attitude toward life and loves his "job". Very knowledgeable about... More

My wife and were in Santa Barbra a few years ago and this was the highlight of our day in Santa Barbra. At first we were a little worried about getting the hang of the Segway but we picked it up really fast. We had so much fun zooming around the sidewalks and walking paths that follow the beach. We...
