What a great oppotunity to ride a segway for the first time, go on trails through heavily vegetated areas, open areas where turtles are sunning themselves out of their sand burrows and visit the Kingsley Plantation, which is a former rice growing area. Very interesting story behind this plantation and its owners. Donna & Nick were most informative and instructive... More

I called them on Friday and made reservations for the following Tuesday. I drove 40 minutes with my family and arrived at the location of the tour on Tuesday afternoon. There was no one in sight. I called them again, and the same lady I spoke to on Friday said "Oh we retired the business of segways!" No apology, no... More

We did the Segway tour to the beach on Fort George Island. It was a great time. The guides happened to to be the owners on the day we went and told us a brief history of the company. We had a short training period on how to mount, steer, and ride the Segway. They are really quite simple. We... More

Never been on a Segway before and we were headed into a national park for a two hour tour---yes we are adventure seekers, or just crazy old people! What a great ride....the owner was actually present to start us off and we had two guides with us that were very informative and easy to listen to. The trip took a... More

We segwayed the Fort Geroge State Park. The guide was fun and the portable listening devices were handy. It was on a path thru the woods to the water. We saw a gopher turtle. It was nice, but kinda blah. They did a very good job of training the beginners on the segway. It was good and I'm glad I... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the EcoMotion Segway tour on Fort George Island. The guides are knowledgeable and fun! The segways are very easy to operate and we enjoyed the trip through the forest and to the beach. I was hesitant to go on the 2 hour tour to the plantation but in hindsight for $20 more it's a bargain and I'm... More

My sister learned of this location for Segway tours in the Ft George Wilderness area. We had 1 experienced and 3 newbie take a tour 12/22. I don't remember everyone's names on the staff but they were all wonderful. The office manager made us feel warm and welcome and answered all our questions. The set up, training and safety awareness... More

First timers on a Segway... on our Jacksonville Florida vacation went on the Fort George Island Dune Ridge Trail to Point Isabel Shores Segway tour. It was such a blast! The owners Maren & Greg and tour guide Donna did an awesome job of showing us how to safely operate the Segway's. They also gave us plenty of time to... More

The ecomotion Segway tour on fort George island was outstanding. We had never ridden segways and our host/guide, Nick, was patient and knowledgeable. Lots of fun while seeing nature at its best from oyster beds to gopher tortoises to beautiful butterflies to snake skins and people enjoying the sand bars. The only negative is the mosquitoes so if you go... More
