After a short training session, everyone young and old took off on the tour. It was my first time on a Segway as most others but easy to grasp in a short time. Very informative tour and the best way to see the downtown area especially if this is your first visit. Brandon and Jessie were excellent.

We've used several Segway tour companies in the Tampa Bay area as well as the rest of the country - Magic Carpet is by far one of the best. The tour guides are generally knowledgable, good humored and don't waste a great deal of time getting you 'orientated' with the Segway. Both the Tampa & St Pete locations are great!

Our guide JP was excellent. He provided instruction and ample practice time. There was interesting photo stops as well as stops for food and water if needed. We toured U of Tampa and the beautiful old building housing the admin offices. Good value for money. Would do it again.

My father was in town from MA and we went on a Magic Carpet Glide Segway tour of Tampa. Our guide, J.P. was wonderful. We got to see a different side of Tampa that you don't always see. We learned some history about UT and other areas of Tampa. My 16 year old daughter loves history and enjoyed J.P.s insight.... More

So much fun!! These guys love what they do and it shows. JP and Jeff took out our group and we had a blast. We showed up excited about riding segways and left talking about how funny these two are. We are still not sure whether this comedy act was intentional or not, however. Either way, keep up the good... More

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!

Met at Channelside where guide let us practice on Segways prior to tour. Saw most of downtown Tampa plus Harbor Island. Segways are fun!

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
