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.

I am plus 65 and I thought this would be way to hard for me - Russell did a wonderful training sessions prior to setting out that left me completely confident! It was a great experience - the ride and the history of Ybor. We can't wait to do it again!

The Segway Tour of Ybor City was delightful and loads of fun. Russell is a FABULOUS tour guide and teacher...he was very patient training us how to safely use the Segway. And his interpretations of Ybor City history and "little known facts" were fascinating. I've lived here for 35 years and learned more today from Russell than I had in the past 3+ decades!

The Segway is LOADS of fun, easy to learn (and I'm NOT athletic!), and Russell is the consummate professional...always looking out to make sure his clients have FUN and are SAFE.

I highly recommend this activity if you have a couple of hours to spend - it's a BLAST! Definitely worth the money. We'll be back to try the sunset tour!

This trip was certainly well worth the money. This was our first time on a Segway but with Russell's patient and informative instruction, we were zipping around in no time.The historical tour was good but the real fun was riding the Segway through historic Ybor City.Russell was a good guide and made sure everyone was safe all the time. This tour was combined with the wine tasting in a local wine bar.This was also very informative and the selection of wines were unique. The wines were accompanied with a very delicious platter of cheeses and other interesting goodies.It was a great way to end a most pleasant day.

Very well worth the money. A perfectly paced tour. With ample amounts of old Tampa history and some current Tampa history. Extremely friendly and courteous guide. Very carefully orchestrated maneuvering all around Ybor.
Interesting, fun and a fantastic way to tour Ybor City's parks, streets, historic buildings and people watch.
