Our guide Jeff was very knowledgeable and personable. Two of us had ridden a Segway before and 3 had not. He had the 5 of us wheeling confidently around the parking lot within about 5 minutes. If you can rise a bicycle, you definitely have sufficient balance control to ride a Segway. Within minutes you will stop thinking about how... More

This morning I spent two hours with my son, daughter, and two friends doing the Back trail Adventures segway tour of Kissimmee State Park. What a blast!!! After a quick lesson on operating the segway, we were off to explore the park with our friendly and knowledgeable guide Jeff. It was a blistering hot sunny day but Jeff managed to... More

We were lucky to find Back Trail Adventures on Trip Advisor's things to do. Jeff made our first experience with a segway so easy and fun. Jeff takes his time working with everyone to make sure they are comfortable with their segway before the tour begins. The tour is fantastic, Jeff is full of information about the park, history of...

An excellent way to see Kissimmee State Park. Jeff is a first rate tutor and guide. He makes you extremely comfortable on the Segway and his knowledge of the park is second to none. Relaxed atmosphere and packed with things to see. Definitely put this on your "to do" list.

I've been wanting to try a Segway for a long time, but never did it before now. I am SO glad I waited, until I found Back Trail Adventures!!! No 'city' tour could ever begin to compare to the adventure that BackTrails gives you!!! (And most 'city Segway tours' I've seen cost a lot more!!!) Jeff is a fantastic tour... More

A super birthday treat for me but one we all thoroughly enjoyed. The Segway was so easy to learn and master! We saw an eagle, an owl, deer and even a snake during our adventure, just to mention a few of the surprises along the way. Jeff was a friendly mine of information, always attending to our safety while training... More

There were 6 of us 60ish people who booked up for this Segway tour ... two of us had done it before, the rest were newbies! Jeff took wonderful care of us ... made certain we were comfortable on the Segway before we headed off; took lots of "foot" breaks and made it a fun and easy adventure for all... More

My78 year old Mother and I scheduled a tour (it included training)and we had a great time. It took about 5 minutes to learn to ride and operate the Segway. It was really fun, fun, fun. Jeff wa a great tour guide. We learned a lot about the plants and animals and the history of the area.

We rented kayaks for 2 hours recently ($15 ea) and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This business really adds to the experience at Lake Kissimmee State Park. The kayaks were in good repair. Jeff and his staff (his mom) are friendly, and the rental was smooth and easy. Paddling down the canal and out onto the lake a bit was a... More
