Great time with family! Our tour guide JP was very helpful showings us the ropes and the town! Worth the trip; great fun! Was easy to get to, be sure to read your email outlining meeting details. We used Groupon, took a little effort but was worth half price tickets. 👍😜

My sister, my two daughters, and I took the 10:30 Segway tour of Tampa's downtown waterfront area today. The Segways were super easy to drive. Our guide, J.P., was very kind, helpful, and knowledgeable. He did a great job. We enjoyed learning more about the history of the area. I would definitely recommend the tour to my friends and family.

Doing a Segway tour was on the top of my list when we visited St. Petersburg. I had purchased a Groupon ticket, but when I called to schedule the tour, they were booked up the entire week that we were there. I was BUMMED!!! So, when we were walking through a park and saw a tour guide from Magic Carpet... More

This was my first time on a segway. My guide, JP, was phenomenal. He was very nice and explained the history of Tampa without making it boring. I was nervous thinking that I wouldn't be able to ride the segway, but JP assured me that I could learn-and I did. He was very professional and I highly recommend using Magic... More

Arrive a little early so you can sign the waiver form and get your helmet if you didn't happen to bring your own bike helmet. JP was our instructor/guide and he did a great job of training the "newbies" on how to safely ride. He had fun and interesting tidbits about the sites along our Riverwalk and University of Tampa...
