I booked the Segway tour of Tampa when our adult daughter visited us. I was skeptical at first that I wouldn't be able to catch on. Our guide, Dylan, was very good at explaining how to step on and off and how to make the Segway go the way we wanted. He helped us practice and in less than 10... More

There is no doubt that the Segway ride was great fun in a beautiful city. However with so much choice I chose this one based on the reviews to have a guide give me an insight into the city sites. All we did was follow our leader without any commentary. I have no idea what sites we passed or any... More

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 did this tour on two different visits and enjoyed both. Our first tour was much much better though. Our guide knew all sorts of facts and history and shared it throughout our trip. 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
