Jeff our guide was very knowledgeable, very patient, an excellent teacher and a great people person. We were all a little nervous about getting on the Segway but he made it easy to learn and be comfortable in no time.... More

If you've never ridden a Segway before, DO IT! It's easy and such fun. If you HAVE ridden a Segway before, you must go along for Jeff's continual and fascinating narrative. He uses a superb, clear and comfortable audio system so everyone can hear him (plus he rides backwards anyway, so you could probably hear him even without the audio... More

The Segway tour was great. They are so easy to learn to ride. Jeff our guide was patient and made sure everyone was comfortable with them before we took off. Nice leisurely tour, we weren't rushed. Learned a lot about Florida and Kissimmee lake. Was the best thing we've done on our trip so far. Beautiful weather and scenery, very... More

Jeff and his wife are wonderful and knowledgeable. I have been twice on his tour and it was outstanding. He loves his job and we got to see so much wildlife. You won't be sorry you made this trip.

We had never been on a Segway and I was somewhat fearful I would be unable to do this with my poor balance. Jeff was an excellent instructor and very patient and made sure we were all very comfortable and safe before beginning the tour. He was very knowledgeable and you could tell he loved wildlife and the area. We... More

We met Jeff last week for a Segway tour of Lake Kissimmee State Park and it was great. Jeff is very personable and is very patient with rookie riders. There was no pressure and he took the time to be sure we were comfortable riding one. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and will do it again. Thanks Jeff.

We had a great time on the Seagway tour in a beautiful state park. Jeff our guide was thorough with his instructions and made us feel quite comfortable. He was easy to listen to and quite knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions. It is something everyone should try regardless of your age. We would definitely go again and recommend... More

I had my doubts about a tour on segways, but this was one of the highlights of my trip to Florida. Our guide was exceptional: friendly, steady, knowledgable. We say a variety of landscapes throughout the park and covered more ground that would have been possible walking. The segways are easy to use and very quiet. Highly recommend.
