Owner description: All tours are by appointment only. Every tour, large or small feels like a personal experience. There is no office to find. We meet in a public park and begin training and tour from there. We specialize in human being Segway Experiences. We've trained humans of all shapes, sizes and ages. We prefer to train the individual and let their physical ability guide them through the process. Individuals previously thought inable to ride a Segway have found great success (and fun) riding with us. We specialize in people with physical challenges. Some of the individuals we've training have challenges such as: Autism, Downs Syndrome, Prosthesis & Short Stature (Dwarfism) We offer xceptional Segway tours for exceptional people! Offering Private/Specialized events and on-location tour experiences. Ybor City & Hillsborough River State Park - Historical Segway Tours - Segway Sight Seeing Tours - Segway Cigar Tour of Ybor City - Small & Large Groups Welcome Segway tour companies are not all created equal. Come see what makes us different. Segway tours by Electric Glide Tours: "The Most Fun You Can Have Standing Up!"

I wanted to get my mom on a segway just for a good laugh. Turns out she's really good at it and loved every minute of it. We toured Ybor city and learned so much from Russ that I never knew existed right in our backyard. I've lived in the area for 8 years, and have never seen this side of Ybor or knew about the history. We will definitely do this again!!! Best time I've had with my husband and parents in a LONG time:)

Got stood up by another tampa company and called Electric Glide Tours, (EGT). He fit us in and we had a great time. We chose a 50/50 tour. Half ride and half history. This was my second time but first with this company. Segways are like Disney, you think it costs alot and at the end of the day you say, that was totally worth it. If you are in Tampa and want to have a blast, try ( EGT) R.H. from Plant City.

I came with my wife and her parents, and we had a blast. The tour guide Russ was amazing. He really brought the history of Ybor City to life. My mother-n-law was nervous about riding, but we couldn't get her off in the end. Segways are a great way to see Ybor!

a trip I recommend everyone. We had a terrific tour with our guide Russell. He was professional, helpful and thoughtful. Segways are cool, and everyone should try it. if you haven´t tried it before, I recommend this guided tour with Russell, because he takes the time to let you stay safe on a segway before heading out on tour. Russell knows the city well. Tampa experience the segway way :)
