Owner description: There is not a better time to be had in Tampa. Come and experience the fun and adventure to be had riding your very own Segway I2 personal transporter through beautiful downtown Tampa and its surrounding islands. Admire the sun setting over the water, dolphins playing and even a few celebrity homes as you whiz about on a Segway personal transporter.

“Fantastic way to see Tampa!”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

I've taken Segway tours before but my wife hadn't. Glad there was a "lesson" at the beginning. Our guide paid attention to how quickly people caught on and didn't waste any time getting us out and about. The river walk area is beautiful and a fun place to zoom... had a great time and will look for you in other cities I visit!

“What a fantastic afternoon”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

It was a beautiful Florida winter afternoon, spent with my son a twin grandsons on a piece of marvelous technology the Segway. The tour guide was thorough in providing us enough training and understanding that we needed to respect the Segway, which we quickly learned that this was no toy. He pointed out was was of interest along Tampa's River Walk, but gave us plenty of "breathing room" to have alone time, doing what we all individually wanted.
If you want a fun filled time looking a beautiful downtown Tampa, U of Tampa campus and a lot of water, make this your next destination, as we will certainly be doing it again in the not to distant future.

“Great day in Tampa”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

The weather couldn't have been better. Took my sister and her husband who are from out of town. The Segways are a blast. We were all so good at it we did the Segway Slolum (our guides bit of humor). The ride along the Riverwalk is beautiful. Makes you proud of Tampa. Bobby was a great guide, very personable. The Jose Gaspar was docked so that provided a bonus photo op. Bobby was very knowledgeable about the latest events in Tampa. We've done Segway tours in Atlanta and San Antonio this one rates right up there with the rest. After the tour we went to Ybor City for some Cuban food. The tour location (Channelside) is very convenient to Ybor City. Fabulous experience.

“Four novices now experts”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

With some trepidation I booked the trip for the cousins from the north. Yes we are up there in years and questioned if folks our age should even attempt the Segway but alas it was fantastic! Marty our guide was patient, entertaining and knowledgeable of the St. Pete downtown history. Marty made the trip unforgettable and the experience of a lifetime. Can't wait to do it again in St. Pete and then Tampa! Don't forget your camera.
