My husband and I did the downtown Tampa a.m. tour and we loved it! We had never touched a Seqway but they were so easy to ride! The instructors were super friendly and easy to talk to. We are bringing our 3 teenage nieces next month as they are begging us after seeing our videos.

My husband and I saw a group riding the Segway a couple of years ago while visiting Tampa. This year we retired and are back in the area so we decided to try the Segway tour with Magic Carpet Glide. We went at 5:30 because it was warm during the day and were not disappointed. Our guide JP did a... More

We had a great... More

Best way to see the city from the riverwalk. Guide J.P. made sure everyone was comfortable with the Segways before starting & made sure no one was left behind. Very informative narrative & great picture taker. Loved every minute!

We all had a wonderful time and it was so easy to ride the segway. We would do it again. Such a great experience to see the riverwalk in Tampa and go across the bridge and tour around the University of Tampa. Our guide was great with a sense of humor and made us all feel good about riding the... More

We've used this company before in Tampa, and the Sarasota trip was even better! We used a different company before and they weren't nearly as good. The guide was fun, informative, and safety conscious. Loved the fact that we got to explore so much of Sarasota - the bridge, the beach, the downtown... I'd highly recommend them!
