We turned up at segs by the sea without a booking. The lady there said the tour guide had just finished for the day but she rang him and he kindly agreed to come back and give our little group of 4 a tour. We had a quick training session and we were off. It was amazing. Great paths to... More

Love these little things! We thoroughly enjoyed the segs. My husband is wanting to buy one now. They take some getting used to but whoa what fun. Look out for squirrels! LOL

Julie, the owner, did an amazing job giving us a Segway Tour. When we called, the last tour had gone out for the day, but she agreed to take us herself. I felt light headed on the trip and Julie stopped, gave me her own water, sat with me until I was better and continued to make sure I was... More

If you are on Anna Maria and need an activity, do this. Our guide was really nice, concerned about our safety and comfort, and the scenery riding to Longboat Key is spectacular. Segs by the Sea gives you a training session, and you don't go out until they are certain you have the hang of it. Our guide - can't... More

Great activity for adults and kids. Beautiful ocean side path to ride on. An hour was enough for me and our kids as it can get tiring on your body standing for more than an hour. Super fun!! Would totally do it again.

We generally enjoyed the Segway experience (90 min tour) but I was a bit taken-aback when we arrived and they told us that the tour guide was a volunteer and depended on tips. This is not an inexpensive activity ($59 per person) and being asked to pay the salary of the tour guide on top of the tour price didn't... More

Hi, Thank you for honest review. We're glad you enjoyed your Segway experience, but we're sorry you were disappointed in tipping the tour guide. The company's policy is that the tour price difference covers their cost of the segway being on the road, and the Guides' do sincerely volunteer their time.

Havng never tried a ride on a Segway, we weren't entirely sure what to expect. The team at Segs On The Beach in Bradenton Beach was terrific in providing training, equipment and an entertaining tour of the south end of Anna Maria Island. Joey, our tour guide and Segway expert, was the highlight of the experience. He's a local, friendly... More

This is a very well run establishment with fast and friendly service. The segways are in great condition and easy to operate. I would highly recommend that you stay on the path along the beach although it can get crowded in places. The sidewalks are too narrow and can be dangerous. My husband almost fell into traffic.

Hi, Thank you for your postive review. We really appreciate it! We're so sorry to hear your husband had a scare near traffic, but we're glad all is well. We agree the sidewalks aren't always the best route, the Coquina Trail and Longboat are always the best options for not only scenery but safety as well. Our goal is to... More
