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

This was a great tour! Our guide was the owner of the tour company and he was an amazing host. My husband and I went with my mother-in-law. The guide was extremely patient with Mom and made sure she was completely comfortable on the Segway before we embarked on the tour. It was a beautiful day and we were lucky... More

This is a beautiful park and the tour on a Segway was a fun chance to try something new and see some interesting wildlife. We saw white-tailed deer, an armadillo and an eagle on our tour, and learned quite a bit about the trees and plants in the park. Jeff, the host, was very good at explaining how to use... More
