My wife and I have taken about 20 Segway tours in various U.S. and European cities, and this is one of the better ones. The guide had lots of historical data about the tourist sites we were passing, and was willing to tailor the tour to our preferences. He suggested stopping at a cafe, but we were interested in visiting... More

We had a great time exploring Santa Barbara on a segway. Are guide was perky, funny, and knowledgeable. My 72 year old mother even managed to master the Segway! Great way to see the city!

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
