Shannon was kind enough to honor a competitors gift certificate when they went out of business and afforded my family and I another great experience on their segways. This was our second time on their tours and the their guides just add to the experience. Great time for the whole family! Thank you Magic Carpet Glide, Shannon, and her team!

We did the 2 hour tour at sunset. It was a lovely ride although we finished before the sun was down. Especially enjoyed the river walk and the University of Tampa

The Segway Tour at Magic Carpet Glide was a wonderful and exciting experience. The tour guide was awesome; he was patient and showed each person how to ride the Segway. The tour guide showed us the downtown area of Tampa and had plenty of good opportunities to take pictures.

This is our 2nd Segway tour of the St. Petersburg bay front. We thought the first tour was great but that was before we toured with Tom of Magic Carpet Glide. We brought a couple of friends visiting from Scotland on their first Segway ride. Tom is a great and patient teacher and after 10 minutes we were all ready... More

The little girls would have ridden the Magic Carpet again. Me, Gramma, would have also. It was my first ride on the carpet.

Magic Carpet is an excellent company. The guide was very good about letting us know all of the highlights of the area and made sure we were all comfortable with the pace. The only problem we had was finding the meeting place - both in Tampa and St. Petersburg. The meeting place is on a certain street corner or in... More

Decided to take our daughter and grand-children to the Magic Carpet Glide to try out a Segway. Our guide JP was wonderful and informative. We toured the River Walk area from Channel-side to the University of Tampa campus. We are locals and we saw parts of Tampa that were new to us. Mastering the Segway was easy even for the... More

A group of us recently took the Segway tour along the Riverwalk with our knowledgeable tour guide JP. He was very friendly volunteering to take as many pictures of us on our Segways as we desired. He took us to a large park on the Riverwalk and allowed us time to have fun with our Segways. We then took a... More
