Segway are fun way to cover ground. We learned some fun history of the area. We were able to go about 2-3 miles along the river walk and to University of Tampa. Segway is easy to learn. If you have zero coordination I wouldn't suggest going but most will do great.

Highly recommend this segway tour to anyone spending time in the Riverwalk area of Downtown Tampa. My guide Jesse, was not only very personable, but was extremely informative about the area we toured. He brought to light some interesting facts that I did not know about Tampa and the University of Tampa even after living in this area for 17... More

Jessie was our guide. He was fun and helpful, always looking out for our safety. As a history major, he had lots of good insights into the area and the people who made it what it is today. The Univ. of Tampa portion is great with lots of beautiful scenery. I would recommend they start providing bottles of water for... More

This was my husband's and my first Segway experience. Jessie, our tour guide, gave us great training, and we felt comfortable before leaving the building where we were given the instructions and had time to practice before taking to the sidewalk and then the Tampa Riverwalk. We went late in the afternoon, so we were out at sunset (beautiful) and... More

My husband and I took an evening segway tour with Jessie. We were impressed on many levels. Jessie was friendly, courteous and gave us great information about the city. He interacted well with our group and made our safety a number one priority. The tour itself covered a lot of ground - from the river walk area to the university... More

I took my 17 year old daughter on the most amazing tour of Tampa after dark. We started at 8pm. Jessie was our tour guide. He instantly made us feel comfortable on the Segways and was very personable. The tour was of the river walk area, as well as, the University of Tampa. The city is beautifully lit at night.... More

The tour was great. We are senior citizens and weren't sure we could ride a Segway. However, after about 15 minutes training by our guide Tom we were comfortable and good to go. Riding the Segway was just plain fun. Guide Tom was very friendly and did a great job describing the facilities and points of interest along the waterfront... More

This was our first Segway experience - we were on vacation in Tampa and thought it was a good way to see some of the city - we a family of 4 with 2 boys in their teens. Our guide, JP explained how the Segway works and after a short time, we were off on the tour. The Segway was... More

We've enjoyed a Segway tour once before in Miami, so we knew that we were in for a fun time. It's such a great experience and the best part is that ANYONE can do it, young and old, regardless of fitness level. There are not too many activities that fit that bill, which makes a Segway tour a great activity... More
