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

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

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

My husband and I booked the tour to Ft. George Island and Kingley Plantation. Maren and Kirk/Kurt (?) were both wonderful! We had never ridden segways before, but were well-instructed and got to practice in a field and turning through cones until we got the hang of it! The leader was miked and we each had ear pieces and got... More

We took the Pt. Isabel tour. Loved everything about this tour. I found the area very beautiful, even as a jaded Floridian. I really enjoyed the Segways too, especially after the training wheels came off. Tour guides had interesting information about plants, wildlife, and island history. Kudos to the tour guides. Greg and Maren also provided helpful local tips for... More

This was my second Segway tour but the Segway was a bit different this time around. The training session was very helpful. Tour guides were friendly, knowledgeable, and funny. I loved the off road tour and history of the area. Make sure you walk through the Ribault Club and also check out the Kingsley Plantation nearby. This is a fun... More
