Thoroughly enjoyed Jeff's Segway Tour this morning! Jeff is very knowledgeable, very informative...a real people person who really makes it FUN! The Segway's are a blast and you really get to see a great deal of Old Florida. We saw 3 Bald Eagles, many Deer and beautiful landscape. I'm excited to have another great activity in Lake Wales to share... More

PUT THIS ON YOUR LIST OF THINGS TO DO, YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED. When looking for something different to try this year when in Kissimmee on holiday, I stumbled upon Back Trail Adventures. Having wanted to try out a Segway after seeing one at Epcot in 2001, thought this would be the ideal opportunity as the x2 looked chunky enough... More

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

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
