I booked our Segway Tour for my husband and I as a birthday gift for him. We had never tried this mode of transportation. Our guide, Aaron F, did a great job teaching us how to get the hang of riding with a brief lesson before we were out and about the Tampa River Walk. The views along the channelside... More

We had a wonderful time. Our tour guide JP was very patient and very informative. We first learned how to use the segways and then we took an hour and a half tour of the city of Tampa. We had a great group of people and really enjoyed ourselves. Wear comfortable shoes!

I booked the Segway tour through Groupon, as I was visiting Sarasota area for 5 days, and was looking for things to do. What a fantastic experience! Somewhat intimidating to get on a Segway the first time, but after a few minutes, I was able to get the hang of it. Our tour guide was awesome, and knew the ins... More

My wife, daughter, her husband and two teenage grandson's took the Segway 2 hour excursion in Sarasota. We all had a GREAT time- considering the ages ranged from 14-75, we had no problems. Brandon was a super guide, patient and informative. We would highly recommend this to virtually anyone

Did not really know what to expect but riding on a segway is really easy and intuitive. The two hour tour was the perfect length and we enjoyed seeing the channel side area. I would consider this tour in other areas. A great way to get around. The couple we shared the tour with were 71 and 78. It was... More

My first time on a Segway and it was fantastic. I live in Tampa but am originally from England thought this would be a fun way to show my niece and sister around downtown and channel side while they were visiting. I was quite nervous about trying this but had an absolutely wonderful time. Aaron was our guide he was... More

I live in Tampa and have done both the Tampa downtown and St Petersburg tours. Great for families, young and old. If you can stand up you can drive a Segway. 2 hour tours are a good length over that is not necessary. Teens will enjoy the activity not for kids under 12.

We initially chose Magic Glide Segway Tour because it seemed to cover a broader area and seemed more family friendly than the competitor. We were lucky to have the owner of the company as our guide and it turned out to be a fun-filled solid 2 hour tour for just our family. It can be difficult to find an activity... More

1st time on a Segway tour and it was fantastic! Very good instruction and guidance throughout tour. Accommodating of large group and had time to get off to take pictures, some free time to explore certain areas, including University of Tampa. Very good value tour and great experience.
