This was such a fun adventure!

This was such a fun adventure. Our tour guide J.P. was the best! They were much easier than they look to operate.

This was a great way to tour Tampa and learn about the city. We went on the river walk, into the city, and covered the university of Tampa. Beautiful views! We had practice before taking the tour to get comfortable with the segways. Wear comfortable shoes!

First time on a segway for both wife and I, and it was really fun!! Even if you live in Tampa and already know some of the history and places, it's still neat to expand your knowledge (plus you are riding a segway!). We did the night tour which was fun because of all the RiverWalk lights. And our guide... More

Our family of 7 took the 2 hour tour on the boardwalk. JP was our guide and he was awesome. He made sure we were all comfortable on the segways before heading out. It was very hot, so he would stop in the shade to share some history of Tampa with us, and made sure we had water bottles with... More

My husband and I had great experience with Magic Carpet Glide. JP was a amazing tour guide. There is a lot of history in Tampa. I'll tell anyone to go to Magic Carpet Glide and do the Segways. My husband and I would do it again !!!

My family loves doing this little trip around Vinoy Park and the Pier in St Pete. Once in a while, it pops up on Groupon too for an even better deal. Plan this little getaway, especially if you've never 'segwayed' before! Awesome Family Fun!

Had a afternoon to visit Tampa, the Riverwalk is a great place to visit and first time on Segway machines was a great experience. JP our tour guide gave us a orientation and tour of the river walk.

Taking a tour of downtown Tampa during sunset on a Friday night was a great way to end my week. JP, our guide, was hilarious and told us a lot of fun facts we didn't know about Tampa. We really enjoyed it and would highly recommend this tour to everyone!

My teenager and I had the best time touring the bayshore area, the university of Tampa and the new breezeway Boardwalk along the waterfront. Bob was an excellent guide. We enjoyed the quiet Sunday morning and cool temps and restaurant advice too. 😄
