Bobby really made our tour the best ever. Very laid back guy and personable. Cant say enough about him. The tour was awesome and informative. I really dont know what else to write-I guess if you have a great tour guide you really dont need to say more.

We also knew about current events and could answer our questions about the location. On our more recent trip, the guide took us to more places... More

This was our very first Segway tour and we decided on the two hour tour at the Tampa location. Bobby was our fabulous tour guide. We never intended this would be such an amazing experience. We are both 67 years old and we sure did not feel that old while on the tour. Bobby was great at training us and... More

My 6th Segway tour (first with Magic Carpet Glide). Had a great trip. The guide was helpful friendly and informative but most of all fun. A great way to see Tampa. Highly recommended.

I was terrified to ride a segway. Even after trying it out a bit first, I was scared. But our guide Dylan was so patient and helpful, that I decided to give it a go. By the end of the ride, I was segway-ing like a pro ! So much fun. And Dylan even taught us a little bit about... More

I bought a groupon deal for a segway tour a while back and finally used it on my fiance's birthday. This was our first segway experience and it was awesome! Dylan was a very informational and fun tour guide who brought us around downtown tampa to sightsee. I would definitely recommend to try out the segway experience with Magic Carpet... More

This adventure is well worth the price and the time. It was confusing to find the tour shop, I just kept asking questions of other shop owners until I found it. We did the 2 hour tour with Dylan. He was so great!! He was just a lot of fun to hang around with and quickly made us feel like... More
