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.

Tom took us on the beautiful River Walk and thru the U of Tampa campus with its silver minarets. The Segway was great fun to handle, and Tom was a great host. Highly recommended.

This was a scream! I got to see our beautiful city of Tampa---along the water, thru the parks--loved every minute. Went with a group of 8 and had a wonderful time. Our tour guide, Tom, was fantastic.

I HIGHLY recommend this. In fact, I can't wait to go again. :):):)

Segway of Tampa (Magic Carpet Glide) gave the four of us an experience that was just plain fun. Our guide Tom was wonderful, cautious and always aware of our group. The practice session was a cinch, since riding a Segway is almost too easy. Tom works with you until you and he know that "you've got it" and that doesn't take long. Have no fear. Anyone can ride a Segway.

The two hour ride was a blast as we explored the Channelside, U of Tampa, downtown Tampa, Davis Island and surrounds. If you haven't used a Segway or haven't explored downtown Tampa at Segway speed, you owe it to yourself and friends to do this. After our experience in Tampa, we've booked a Segway tour in Richmond for the next time we see the kids and grandkids.

We had a small group of eight people gliding around downtown Tampa on Segways on February 23, 2013. Our Segway guide and instructor was Tom and he gave us a fabulous tour. Down town Tampa is beautiful and easy to traverse on a Segway. Our tour was a full 2 hours and we all enjoyed ourselves tremendously. I whole heartily recommend "Magic Carpet Glide" for your Segway tours. We had a great time!

This was the second segway tour our group of eight "active seniors" has done in the past six months. We did the beach tour in Bradenton last fall and vowed we'd do another one we had so much fun. This one was even better, and we didn't think it could get any better! Tom, our guide, met us at the plaza at the cruise ship port and made sure we were all steady on our segways before taking off. He skillfully led us down the sidewalks and streets along The Riverwalk and Harbor Island, letting us stop every so often to enjoy the views and take pictures. What a way to see the sights! This is seeing Tampa like most people never get to! Tom's knowledge of the area--restaurants, theaters, universities, hotels, tourist attractions, gave us a good feel for the area and its history. Would we do it again? Absolutely!!
