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!

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

Our family of 7 took the 2 hour tour on the boardwalk. JP was our guide and he was awesome. He made sure we were all comfortable on the segways before heading out. It was very hot, so he would stop in the shade to share some history of Tampa with us, and made sure we had water bottles with... More

My husband and I had great experience with Magic Carpet Glide. JP was a amazing tour guide. There is a lot of history in Tampa. I'll tell anyone to go to Magic Carpet Glide and do the Segways. My husband and I would do it again !!!
