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.

This is a really great tour! For anyone afraid of riding a Segway, don't worry! It's very intuitive, and you get the hang of it really quickly! You get a great mix of sightseeing and freedom to play on the Segway! A Tampa MUST for sure.

Tour guides are friendly and fun. The tour was a good balance of site seeing and riding. Two hours, well worth every penny. I would definitely go to them again! Highly recommended!

I love segways! This tour is really just about riding around Tampa on a segway, not really a tour. It was really fun to navigate around and also go along the riverwalk. The only thing was I paid for a two hour tour but it was only 1:45 and that included the getting ready, signing forms, riding instructions and practice.... More

It was so much fun going down Riverwalk, along the Hillsborough River, and to University of Tampa. Our guide could have given a little more history. There were several questions that were asked and he could not answer but he did google to try to find answers. Have already recommended this adventure to friends coming in to town. Check for...

I know that Riverwalk is a wonderful attraction. There are some great planners working on this project and it will be like the one in San Antonio soon. Tampa's Channelside, pirate history, beautiful Bayshore, and Davis Island are all great and worthwhile places to see. What makes it even better is all that has gone into the Riverwalk. Thanks Mayor... More

Our Tour Guide Bobby was A-1, Seeing many parts of Tampa on a two hour tour that is just great. Try the Segway, you will love it. What a way to get around and see a lot in a few hours. Oh yes look for a groupon and you will keep coming back.
