Went to Kissimmee Nation Park for out Segway tour with Jeff. He is very knowledgeable about the park and the history of it. Unfortunately the park is well off the beaten track and it also costs you $5 to get into the park itself. It is well worth a visit if in the area.

Each of my tours have covered different areas & allowed me to see new things every time. Jeff is... More

5 star does not do this justice, Jeff was very patient as we learned the Segway which is great fun but the way he poured his passion for the history and ongoing work in the ins and outs of managing this beautiful location breathed life into everything we saw and did. From seeing vultures, Osprey, eagle. Deer and even a... More

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
