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.

We had a blast doing this tour. Our guide was patient and very thorough with his tour. We are from this area and still learned so much about downtown Tampa. My husband said this is a must in every city that we visit and my 15 year old son had a blast! This was a great buy on Groupon!

Our first Segway tour. It was great fun for all ages. We were five seniors and 3 college age kids. It was a blast. Our guide gave us individual instructions till we all felt confident. Tampa is a beautiful city. Can't wait to go again, and again. If you want to impress company from back home, take them on a Segway Tour!

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!
