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

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

The six of us were excited but nervous about riding a segway for the first time. Jeff was extremely patient and we all were riding like experts down the trails. Very beautiful scenery, saw two deer and learned a lot about the area. Jeff was great. Would love to do it again.
