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.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Our group of six arrived at 10:30 and received excellent instruction on how to use our Segways safely. It was a chilly morning, but the sun was shining, and we were dressed for the weather. Apprehesive at first, we soon were relaxing into the experience and honing our skills. The scenery was beautiful as we rode along Channel Side, and Tom had so much interesting information for us, and also made sure we got a couple of breaks to stretch our legs. A ride across the bridge to the University of Tampa campus was fascinating. Next a tour of downtown Tampa. We were sad when we got back because we just didn't want to stop. Thank you Magic Carpet Glide!! This was the highlight of our winter in Florida. By the way, the kids are coming, and we have booked another tour!

The Segway tour was great. Brian the tour guide was excellent. He gave us a detailed lesson of the segway. He even spent extra time to make sure that we were comfortable with the machine.
Overall the price was great the scenery of the Tampa River Walk was great and the tour guide was friendly and great!

“Didn't know Segways were so fun!”

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.

“More fun than I've had in a long time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

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. :):):)
