After reading reviews on St. Pete Segway operators, I made the decision to book my first Segway tour with St. Pete Glide.
After an easy booking, I was greeted by Aaron, who happens to be a very courteous and knowledgable Segway tour guide. Aaron gave a thorough training and checked each of us out before engaging the tour.
I had a blast but remained reserved for fear of falling off (unfounded). Even though I was at the back of the pack, Aaron took time out to check on me and make sure I was feeling confident as well as comfortable with my Segway.
The tour included the St. Pete waterfront, the Dali museum, Al Lang Field, the Pier and Beach Drive (with a stop at the awesome Banyan tree for a spirited game of Segway tag). Also, throughout the tour, Aaron would circle us up for stories on St. Pete history (Aaron is a St. Pete native and is skilled at keepining things humorous and light, which made it all the more fun).
The group was a nice mix of people that included locals, in state visitors and an International visitor. I not only had fun meeting new people, but also had the opportunity to network with others that happened to be in the same profession as myself (I.T.).
I plan on doing this again and will be sure to ask for Aaron since he made this a stand out event.
Thanks Aaron and SP Glide for a memorable afternoon.
