Having ridden a Segway before, I knew that part would be great fun. But what took it to the next level was having Russell as a guide. I highly recommend Electric Glide Tours!

Thank you Russell, for the great training and fabulous tour. Loved the tidbits of history for the area. Next time we are in Florida, we look forward to taking one of your other tours. It was a GREAT "thing to do for the FIRST time!" Diane

I am plus 65 and I thought this would be way to hard for me - Russell did a wonderful training sessions prior to setting out that left me completely confident! It was a great experience - the ride and the history of Ybor. We can't wait to do it again!

The Segway Tour of Ybor City was delightful and loads of fun. Russell is a FABULOUS tour guide and teacher...he was very patient training us how to safely use the Segway. And his interpretations of Ybor City history and "little known facts" were fascinating. I've lived here for 35 years and learned more today from Russell than I had in... More

Very well worth the money. A perfectly paced tour. With ample amounts of old Tampa history and some current Tampa history. Extremely friendly and courteous guide. Very carefully orchestrated maneuvering all around Ybor. Interesting, fun and a fantastic way to tour Ybor City's parks, streets, historic buildings and people watch.

My husband and I had a GREAT time! This was our first time on a Segway so we really appreciated the time Russel and his wife spent instructing all of us. They had a lot of quirky stories that they shared about Ybor which made it very interesting. We highly, highly recommend this company and this tour.

Fantastic tour company. Russell's instructions for use and operating safely were excellent. Our group of 8 (broke into tour groups of 5 and 3) had never used a Segway, but, within 15 minutes we were ready. The tour was outstanding! Russell was very knowledgeable about Ybor City's history and very professional in managing the newbie Segway riders. We highly recommend... More
