“A Great Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

We called last minute to schedule a Eco/History tour, and Doo fit us right in. There was a brief training session, the Segways are very easy to learn to ride. Doo took us on a great tour highlighting the pier, old St. Petersburg neighborhoods, along the marinas and parks, and a few other surprises.

The tours are well organized, and Doo is very informative and personable. We would definately repeat this tour on our next visit. A+

“Great fun, great tour!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Aside from the obvious fun of touring the city on a Segway, this historical tour was also very informative. From the city origins, founders, through prohibition, to the Dali museum and the waterfront, it was interesting, light and never boring. Love the use of earphone technology to ensure that everyone can hear the tour while zipping along. The waterfront portion of the tour was beautiful and the Palm Tree species garden was cool to see as well. My only negative comment.... at times the tour progressed too quickly and there wasn't enough time to stop and get a good look at some items of interest, and photographs were almost impossible which was a bit disappointing. Tour guide often invited us to let her know if we wanted to stop for photos, but that's impossible to do when you're at the tail end of a line of several segways. Our two hour tour was over in @ 1.5 hours and at times I did feel rushed to keep up. That said, all in all it was a fantastic and fun afternoon, and I would highly recommend it.

“Great time, great views, great tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Great service oriented outfit, I called to inquire about times and Doo's response was "When would you like to go?" In under 2 hours we met at the appointed location in the downtown park. Doo was very friendly and since we had ridden Segways before, she just had us demonstrate our proficiency prior to going on the tour. The Segways are brand new and in perfect condition. A nice feature of the tours was that we were fitted with a headset which allows you to hear Doo's narration during the tour, additionally when not speaking she had background music playing, nice touch. Can't wait to visit St Petersburg again to go on another tour. Great scenery, nice overview of history, GREAT TOUR!!!

“Haunted Segway Tour of St. Pete”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

My boyfriend and I did a Saturday night Haunted segway tour of Old Northeast and Downtown St. Pete. After a short intro to segwaying, Doo took us to about five local Haunted houses and three haunted hotels, complete with stories, pictures, and scary music playing in the background. Each tour member gets headphones so that Doo can narrate the tour regardless of your proximity to her. This is where the one downside of the tour came in: the receivers keep cutting in and out, so I missed a lot of the ghost stories. Everyone else seemed to be having the same problem. It was kind of a bummer but I was able to piece most of it together.
We started the tour in "turtle" mode with a max speed to 8 mph. This was fine since we were touring through Old Northeast neighborhood, which had uneven sidewalks, potholes, and the like. Then once we progressed to downtown, Doo switched us to "rabbit mode" with max speeds of 13 mph and we had a blast hauling around downtown!. At the end of the tour, we even did a little ghost hunt complete with electromagnetic energy detector near a public bathroom on the bay (which is supposedly haunted).
After the tour was over, my boyfriend and I walked to over to the Vinoy hotel and went up to room 521, which is allegedly haunted. Doo covers this in the beginning of the tour. We didn't see anything, but it was fun anyway.
All in all, I would highly recommend this tour! Segwaying is a blast and definitely brought out the inner child in my boyfriend, who at one point was trying to get air coming over a small hill in the road (no, it didn't happen). Doo was very friendly and laid back, and made sure everyone was comfortable before we set off. We had a lot of freedom during the tour to play around, doing maneuvers or racing. It is a great way to spend an evening!
