We were visiting relatives nearby and they suggested that we take this Segway Tour that they had done before with other friends that had visited. We had never been on a segway before, but the training and check outs before you leave the area are very thorough. There were 6 of us on the Butterfly Beach Tour (2 Hours) with our guide, Josh. We had a great time. One of the people in our group lost control of their segway partway through the tour and Josh was so good at getting them to stay focused and get them stopped. He really knows what he is doing. If you have never tried one and you want to see the sites, it's a nice way to get around.

My wife and I have taken nine Segway tours all over the U.S. and this was one of the best. Mike from Detroit runs a casual operation and Jerry was a great and knowledgable guide. We took the three hour Mission tour and saw most of the sights we had independently decided we wanted to see. We also got a flavor from Jerry as to what it is like to live in Santa Barbara. Only my wide and I had signed up for this tour, so it was like having a private guided tour. Highly recommended.

We booked the Old Santa Barbara Tour in October. It was a grey day all the way up the coast from LA, but as we approached SB, the clouds parted and it was a spectacular sunny day! Since we had some Segway experience, our guide Josh did a short refresher course and off we went. There were only two of us, so we got a really personal experience. Josh was knowledgeable and funny. One of the best things about the tour was the use of the wireless headsets which allowed us to ride almost continuously and not miss a thing. Great tour - great company. For any older folks reluctant about doing this, it's a piece of cake to learn and just about the most fun you can have standing up! Segway tours are now a required vacation activity.

The staff was amazing. So many sights to see of the town. Loved the stops on the way. Will definitely stop by again when in Santa Barbara. Highly recommended. Very friendly and comfortable environment. Jerry was a fantastic tour guide, hilarious also. Mike was a very friendly guy, gave us tons of tips of places to go. These guys know their stuff. Hey mike go wings!

We took the 2.5 hour trip and it was so much fun and informational. The training was very professional and our guide, Bill, was lots of fun. It was great to be able to use the bike lanes all over town and also to have earphones to listen to Bill as he pointed out and discussed sites along the route. Well worth the money!
