Our guide, J.P., was very good. Friendly and helpful. Segways are a lot of fun. Pretty good location (although they have an address but no storefront (yet) so that was confusing). Riding up and down the Riverwalk took a lot of car traffic out of the equation which was nice.

JP was our tour guide. He was excellent! Very well mannered and enthusiastic for the whole tour, and he was very knowledgeable about the area. I would definitely go on the tour again.

It was our first time on Segways. The instruction session was great and we learned quickly. The 2 hour tour was just right. Covered enough area and enough free time to enjoy it. Our guide was informative and fun. There were 9 people in our group at all levels and we were all still able to enjoy. A great way... More

8 of us decided to see tampa at night. We saw this online and although my wife was nervous we all had a fantastic time. The guide was obviously passionate about tampa and gave us a real insight in to an up and coming city. The majority of the route was on footpaths so no worries about traffic, just the... More

I live across the street from Magic Carpet Glide and always take out of town guest so they can see and learn about downtown Tampa while having LOTS of fun. My sister was timid at first, but had full control of the segway in about one minute! My Dad first tried it at 70 years old and has had both... More

Machine is a dream to operate. It moves with your body given the gyroscope.Fred was great. Showed us city highlights from the water and land perspectives.Safety first of course. Guides make time to give everyone individual instruction.

He showed great patience teaching us how to feel comfortable on the segway. He knew the area well and had tidbits of history he'd share with... More

My husband and I did the downtown Tampa a.m. tour and we loved it! We had never touched a Seqway but they were so easy to ride! The instructors were super friendly and easy to talk to. We are bringing our 3 teenage nieces next month as they are begging us after seeing our videos.
