“Great tour!”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

We visited Anna Maria Island as part of my moms 75th birthday celebration. Our guide was very helpful in getting mom comfortable and confident before setting out in the ride. We went all along the beach on a shady trail and saw many beautiful sights. It was a great tour and one we will remember always. Thanks for the fun time!!!

“WOW !!!”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

took the 1 hour tour down the beach. its so easy and fun to use, i could have gone for hours. Jeff and Julie(owners) were very easy going and friendly. They made it easy to relax and enjoy the tour. there were 7 people on the tour, 4 seniors, a couple from Europe and myself, all had fun and found the segway very easy to use. Great tour, saw some manatees from the beach and peacocks,well done. I will definitely do this again!!!
around US$40 for one hour well worth it. they also do rentals of bikes too.

“Fun, but kinda tiring.”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

We recently took the 90 min. tour with Joey as our guide. He was awesome - patient, safety oriented, and made a real effort to spend a bit of time with each guest. The Segways are interesting - much easier and more intuitive to operate than you might expect, but surprisingly tiring. Several of us had aching feet by the end of the tour ( and we all had comfortable running shoes on). It was probably just us being tense, but it became really quite uncomfortable.
The tour itself was interesting. We didn't really see anything new or learn much in the way of "Anna Maria Island Secrets", but it was still an interesting and fun experience. We were glad we did it, but probably wouldn't be in a hurry to do it again.

Our trip went well, with the opportunity to practice a bit in a parking lot before heading out. The portion of the tour by the beach was best, as the views were awesome. Although zipping along in a residential area isn't as fun, it was nice to be in an area without much traffic.

Our guide was kind and helpful. She aimed for safety first.

We enjoyed the Segways and would like to use them again when we visit other areas.

“Great experience, fantastic tour, terrific instruction”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

Wow! This was a great experience. On a beautiful sunny Sunday we took a 90 minute tour of Anna Maria Island with our wonderful guide, Jennifer. She demonstrated and thoroughly instructed us before our departure. We were a small group of 5 (not including Jennifer) so our experience was very personal. We stopped for photo ops and, (thankfully), much of the tour was under cool shade and breezing along on the Segway made it even more comfortable. I would highly recommend this tour to both locals and tourists. The Segway is a fun and easy method of transportation. It can be mastered in a few minutes by kids and seniors and anyone in between. It's a fantastic way to get to know AMI up close and personal.
