“Awesome adventure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

The Segway Tour of Ybor City was delightful and loads of fun. Russell is a FABULOUS tour guide and teacher...he was very patient training us how to safely use the Segway. And his interpretations of Ybor City history and "little known facts" were fascinating. I've lived here for 35 years and learned more today from Russell than I had in the past 3+ decades!

The Segway is LOADS of fun, easy to learn (and I'm NOT athletic!), and Russell is the consummate professional...always looking out to make sure his clients have FUN and are SAFE.

I highly recommend this activity if you have a couple of hours to spend - it's a BLAST! Definitely worth the money. We'll be back to try the sunset tour!

“A Real Blast.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

This trip was certainly well worth the money. This was our first time on a Segway but with Russell's patient and informative instruction, we were zipping around in no time.The historical tour was good but the real fun was riding the Segway through historic Ybor City.Russell was a good guide and made sure everyone was safe all the time. This tour was combined with the wine tasting in a local wine bar.This was also very informative and the selection of wines were unique. The wines were accompanied with a very delicious platter of cheeses and other interesting goodies.It was a great way to end a most pleasant day.

“Sensational Segway Tour that covers all of Ybor City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Very well worth the money. A perfectly paced tour. With ample amounts of old Tampa history and some current Tampa history. Extremely friendly and courteous guide. Very carefully orchestrated maneuvering all around Ybor.
Interesting, fun and a fantastic way to tour Ybor City's parks, streets, historic buildings and people watch.

“Way to see Ybor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This was our sixth Segway Tour. This one ranks in the top three! Very well maintained and up to date machines made the tour more enjoyable. Russell was well versed in the history of Ybor City and we saw many sights we hadn't seen before. I would definitely recommend this tour and tour company. It's an excellent way to get an overview of this neighborhood in Tampa. Even if you haven't tried Segway before, they are attentive and patient instructors. Go for it!!
