“A great way to see South Beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

My work team took the South Beach tour and we had a great time. We were able to tour the entire south beach area, see all of the great sights, and get a history lesson. If you want to see a lot in a short amount of time, and learn about the city, go with Segway South Beach!!

“Segway South Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

Six of us were in a group between cruises out of Miami port. My wife set-up a Segway tour with a private company because nothing like that was available with Carnival Cruise Lines.

The guy who took us out was great. They take cash only at $95 per rider for approximately 1 1/2 hours. The company SegwaySouthBeach.com (954) 804-0253 if you want to book. We met him at Lincoln Road at the bottom end near the beach and across from the Ritz Carlton.

They are a smaller tour company with only 5 segways, but he is able to get more depending on group size. Its better to go with a company like this, as they give you training needed and get you on your way quicker than some of the larger groups in the area. He pointed out as we went by some of them, and you can waste time if group too big, as they tend to book.

If you havn't tried the segway, you should. It's a blast. This is the second time my wife and I tried it. She caught onto it pretty quick and she is very nervous about those types of things. She wants to do it again, it was so much fun. The others in our group had no problems, even though they never tried one before.

I would recommend this company as they showed us alot of south beach and gave us lots of information about the area.

They also let us try a segway that didn't have handle bars. Amazingly, it was alot of fun, even though it looked unsafe and hard to drive at first.

“Great service and value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

Excellent bike/segway rental agency. Very friendly staff, that will give you a discount if you're a normal friendly person. Very clear rental policy, instructions, as well as a small training session with with the staff. Helmets are given for free. Vouchers for discounted rentals are usually given at the end for a next time.

“Fantastic way to see South Beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2011

Two weeks ago eight of us (four couples) returned from a wonderful vacation on The Oasis of the Seas and booked a segway tour with SegwaySouthBeach/SegwayHollywood on our return. Last year four of us booked a tour with this company in Hollywood and we loved it so much we wanted to share it with the additional couples who joined us this year. Needless to say it was just as great as last year.

The owner (Michael) and his associate (Linda) met us at the appointed place ahead of schedule (always a good sigh!) and we were off and running (gliding) in no time. Michael took the lead and Linda brought up the rear, making sure the newbies were comfortable and safe. We zoomed around and explored areas that most people would never find or even see. Michael pointed out areas of interest including architecture, history, movie sites, etc.. We also stopped to take some breaks and take photos - with the beautiful beach and city of Miami as our backdrops. Always accomodating Michael answered all of our questions and geared his tour to individual interests. Just like last year, he gave all of us turns on his handless segway (the closest thing to flying!). I must say, Michael and Linda are the nicest people on earth - patient and helpful, gracious and kind. Michael is the kind of person you want to hang out with - interesting and engaging and just plain cool.

We would not think of any other segway tour to go on while in Florida than with this company. Take a look at their website and you'll see videos of Michael flying around on his awesome handless segway.
