“Segs in the sun”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

We turned up at segs by the sea without a booking. The lady there said the tour guide had just finished for the day but she rang him and he kindly agreed to come back and give our little group of 4 a tour. We had a quick training session and we were off. It was amazing. Great paths to ride along, great views and a truly great tour guide. Joey was fabulous. He was patient with us and gave us a lot of information about the area and the turtles. We booked the hour tour but by the time we got back it was over one and a half hours duration. Would highly recommend this tour if you are in the area and looking for something different to do.

Hi!

Thank you so much for your great, positive review! We truly appreciate it! It really was a great working out that day, that Joey was able to come back and we could provide you with a segway tour experience. We're so glad you enjoyed it and would recommend it. If you're ever in the area again, please come on by!

Thanks again,

“Wonderful Time”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Julie, the owner, did an amazing job giving us a Segway Tour. When we called, the last tour had gone out for the day, but she agreed to take us herself. I felt light headed on the trip and Julie stopped, gave me her own water, sat with me until I was better and continued to make sure I was okay for the rest of the trip. Her concern for safety for my husband and I was wonderful. She knew a lot about the island and was very educated on Segs. I woulf highly reccommend this to anyone wanting a good time. They Segways were in wonderful condition and are much easier to drive than expected. Thanks again Julie!

“Lots of fun...”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

If you are on Anna Maria and need an activity, do this. Our guide was really nice, concerned about our safety and comfort, and the scenery riding to Longboat Key is spectacular. Segs by the Sea gives you a training session, and you don't go out until they are certain you have the hang of it. Our guide - can't remember his name - but he was a retired vet and took lots of pictures with our cameras. It was definitely worth S50.
