Tours by the Sea is a stroll down the beach on a Segway. If you have never been on a Segway, you got to try it, it's a lot of fun. Call for reservations and setup your trip down the beach. You will be instructed on how to operate the Segway and a little practice time, then the instructor takes you out to the beach and turns you loose for about an hour. Seriously, it takes no time at all to master the Segway and its a great way to stroll down the beach!

We have done this tour for 3 years now and have a great time each time we do it. Marcus is a great instructor. The first time we did it (3 years ago) we could only ride in the car lanes, but now that the sheriffs department has classified segways as a bicycle, you can go anywhere but loose sand and wet sand. They are very easy to drive and steer and using them on the beach is a blast. Well worth your time and a great value for your money.

We actually tried to get on to a Segway tour of downtown St. Augustine, but they were full and they called up Mark for us and we scheduled a beach tour with him for later that afternoon. We are VERY happy the other tour was full! Mark gave us some quick lessons, allowed us to do some test running on a small side-road, and then we all headed down to the hard-packed beach of St Augustine. Mark then said, 'Have at it and see you back here when your time is up!' Cool.

My wife, daughter (11 years-old) and I had an absolute blast. It was a lot of fun just cruising around on the beach, moving in and around the people and tents. We went at the end of August so the crowds were dramatically down from what they usually are, so less people to get in your way.

I wish I heard about Mark earlier on our trip, we would have been over there a bunch of times to rent the Segways.

It is a MUST DO thing while in St. Augustine!

We have been on Segway tours before and love them....but riding a seway on the beach is another whole experience!
This is a must do experience for everyone....easy to learn and loads of fun. Mark was a great teacher and gave us plenty of freedom to do our own thing.
