“The best birthday present ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We have been coming to Lake Kissimmee SP for years. What a wonderful addition to a great park. I love to hike, however, my husband has a hard time walking long distances. We have always wanted to ride on a Sedway, so what a great surprise when we arrived. The tour was absolutely wonderful. My husband was able to experience areas of the part that he has never been to. Plus what a great birthday present for him!!! We strongly recommend this trip for the young at heart. If you have walking limitations, you can still experience and enjoy the wonderful back areas of the park. We have already made reservations for November when our friends from Ohio are visiting. What a great way to show them the park. Thank you Jess and Melody. You absolutely made our day!!! Sandy and Dave

“A Great Day in Kissimmee State Park Riding a Segway.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

My husband and I took the Segway tour this past Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Being from the area, we have been going to Kissimmee State Park for years either for a peaceful bike ride or to walk around, but our visit this past Saturday was by far the best. The day started with a training before the tour on how to use a Segway, which was so much fun in itself. There were a total of 6 people in our group, and Jeff did an awesome job narrating the tour. We all had headsets, so we could hear him very clearly while we were on our tour. It was not only fun but a very informative tour. We went through trails that normally we would not have due to the amount of walking involved. The Segways have off-road tires, so we were able to go through a vast area, and all that for a very reasonble price; you can't beat it! Enjoy!

“Awesome Segway Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

My husband and I chose this tour as an alternative to biking. It was our first trip to Lake Kissimmee State Park and were looking for an informative tour of the park. We certainly were not disappointed. It was more than we had expected. Jeff and his wife Melody were so very friendly. Jeff gave an excellent demonstration and thorough instruction on how to use the Segways prior to our tour. We both loved the headsets which allowed us to hear Jeff so easily. We were also so amazed at how easy it was to use the Segways on and off road. This allowed us to cover so much territory through the park and learned so much about the Park's history and it's interesting plants and trees. We are planning on coming back and bringing family and friends. Thank you so much for such a fantastic tour.

“Kissimmee State Park Segway Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

My wife and I took the Back Trail Adventures Segway tour last weekend and it was amazing. Our hosts Jeff and Melody are very knowledgeable and made us very comfortable on the Segways in no time. We were off watching wildlife and learning about the local flora and fauna in no time and having a great time. The tour provides head sets that were very helpful, no difficulty trying to hear what is being pointed out for us. This was a birthday celebration for my wife and Jeff and Melody helped make it extra special. I would recommend this tour for anyone visiting the central Florida area. FYI the lower end age limit for the tour is 14 years old.

“Fun Segway tour at Kissimmee State Park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

We took our friends on their first Segway tour this morning with Jeff and Melody and had a great time! Jeff and Melody did such an awesome job explaining the Segway and did a perfect hands on training to make everyone comfortable and get to know thier Segway. We have been on Segway tours in DC, Sarasota, Orlando, St. Marteen, and Cozumel and this was one of the best tours for first timers! Their headsets were great and you could hear Jeff's tour guide perfectly.
We saw several doe, fawns, turkeys, and birds today! Being a 4th generation Floridian I was impressed I learned some new stuff about the trees and vegetation in our area.
If you are looking for a relaxing way to spend some time viewing nature and beautiful woods while riding a really cool Segway, this is the tour to take! Jeff and Melody are so nice, friendly, and go out of there way to make sure everyone is having a great time. Thank you for a great job you 2 are doing! We will be back and be sending our friends to come take your awesome tour!
