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

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

JP and Dylan did a great job as our tour guides. Overall the pace of the tour was very relaxed. Our guides were very patient with the participants who had never ridden a Segway before and spent a few extra minutes on training. Most of the tour takes place along the Riverwalk with a stop at the Univ. of Tampa... More

Whether you are visiting or have lived here all your life, this is a must! I was a little nervous about the Segway, but it was easy to learn. I enjoyed seeing parts of Tampa I have never seen. I would have like to hear more history about the area, but it was fun.I also would have liked to go... More

You will NOT regret taking the tour. ESPECIALLY with JP. He made the trip so much more fun and enjoyable with his humor and personality. He went out of his way to ensure every person felt comfortable and was having fun. The sights were breathtaking and the tour guide took it to the next level. Thanks, JP! <3
