WOW what a fabulous tour and guide. Jeff is an outstanding example of customer service. He is patient and very succinct in describing the Segway and the safety features. The tour was excellent - not rushed. He was quick to point out plants and animals. We were fortunate to see many deer, gopher tortoise and baby, eagles as well as... More

Words can hardly describe our family's delight with the Segway tour...Jeff ( the instructor ) is a wonderful teacher, patient and great with all of us as he lead us through the details of the Segway. The ages in our family on the tour were, ( 15-18-50-51-63- and 75 ) so you see we ranged in all the age groups... More

This is a great way to see the park and enjoy a Segway at the same time. Jeff is a great guide and his instructions on the Segway made us feel very comfortable.

Three of us and another couple joined up for the early tour. Jeff is a great instructor on the Segway and was very patient and everyone gets one on one instruction. We all set off listening to Jeffs tremendous knowledge of the Parks flora and fauna on our earphones. The trails are gentle and varied and we saw lots of... More

So wonderful.. ANYONE can learn to do this (our group was in their late 70's) The training was done expertly .. Then the fun began ! The trip through the park was just breathtaking, and was narrated by Jeff (the owner) in the most personable and friendly manner. You can tell that he loves his job. Not only would I... More

Have always wanted to try out a Segway & this tour company did not disappoint.. We were met at the appointed time in the am by our instructor/guide Jeff. He provided good instruction and ensured we all felt comfortable on the machines before heading out on a nature trail. We did see some of the park wildlife as a bonus... More

Awesome introduction to the Segway. Always wanted to try a Segway, but the urban tours in crowded areas seemed risky for a novice. We had a group of 12 "mature" individuals and many were apprehensive. Jeff, our guide, and Paul, who handled reservations, did a great job of getting us scheduled, trained, and cruising about in Lake Kissimmee State Park.... More

...Then this is the perfect solution. My wife and I and our two youngest kids went on the tour with Jeff in February. My youngest is not a fan of hiking, but his eyes lit up when he saw the Segways! The machines were easy to master and Jeff is a fantastic guide. The park is the perfect setting, and... More

Segway's cover a lot more territory than hiking in a short period of time. We are also up high enough to see across the fields. Thank you for touring with us. It is an honor to serve our guest. More
