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. 😄

Today is 4 days before my sisters wedding! Her wedding party and mom and future mother-in-law all went. JP was our guide and we could not have asked for a better guide. I've never been before and JP really helped me to feel comfortable. I would recommend anyone that is contemplating going, do it and request JP. also, going during... More

We have been on several tours in different cities, and this one is by far the best. We had the chance to connect with the owner and he recommended the night tour. Great advice! Tampa at night is insanely beautiful. The river walk is all lit up and it's just really fabulous in pictures, views and not to mention significantly... More

JP was our tour guide. He was knowledgable, personable, patient and very helpful. We lucked out when we were assigned to JP. I don't believe we would ever have discovered this beautiful River Walk if not for this tour. It was my 15 year old grandson's first Segway experience and he loved it. Wants to go again. I highly recommend... More

April 4, 2015, can't say enough about the guide and Segway experience....WONDERFUL. This has to be the best way to see Tampa Florida. So easy to learn to ride!

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
