Owner description: There is not a better time to be had in Tampa. Come and experience the fun and adventure to be had riding your very own Segway I2 personal transporter through beautiful downtown Tampa and its surrounding islands. Admire the sun setting over the water, dolphins playing and even a few celebrity homes as you whiz about on a Segway personal transporter.

“This was an amazing adventure! Highly recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We had never ridden Segways before, but even my 72 year old mom had a great time buzzing around Tampa! She was apprehensive at first, but after our tour guide, Bobby, showed her how easy it was and helped her onboard, she was buzzing around like the rest of us. My two teenage sons absolutely loved this activity! It was the perfect mix of "tour" and "free play". We will definitely be taking the St. Pete tour in the next few months, and since we live locally, we will be taking all our out-of-town visitors on these tours. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

“Great time..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

This was our second time on a Segway tour. Both tours were a blast.Our guide (Brian) paid attention to how quickly people caught on and didn't waste any time getting us out and about. The river walk area is beautiful and a fun place to ride... We had a great time. Brian excellent. We will book again..

“A different way to see Tampa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

My wife and I have lived in Tampa since 1974 and wanted to show friends from Pitsburgh something differnt for their trip here. We are our early 70s with some balance issues. Learning how to drive the Segway took all of 5 minutes. We had a great group in our party of 8 with ages ranging from 30s to 70s. Seeing the waterfront area by Segway is a very different experience from just driving by in a car. Our leader, Tom, was as excellent tour guide and was very alert to our safety needs in the downtown area traffic lights.

“Give your vacation a boost, Segway into a new adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

If you want to have a great time while in Tampa, go on a Segway tour by Magic Carpet Glide. My wife and I took the Channelside Tour and had the time of our life. Our tour guide was extremely friendly, experienced and knowledgeable. Riding a Segway was easier and more fun than sitting in your lounge chair with the TV remote in your hand. We cannot wait for a return trip to Tampa to take another tour. Magic Carpet Glide was a great company to deal with. I highly recommend this company and activity.
