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.

First, we love Segway. We try to do Segway tours wherever we travel. It's fun, you cover a lot of distance, and get details about a place you would never otherwise know. Our Ybor City tour on Electric Glide Tours ranked right up there. Russel is the owner and guide. He first makes sure everyone is safe and comfortable. TIP - sneakers or closed shoes - no flip flops - so be prepared. He provides water and photos (no extra charge) and shares history and facts. He even takes you to Cuba!

Add this to your list of "Must Do" when visiting the Tampa area. Plan a morning or afternoon, and then enjoy a meal around the tour.

Had a great time. Russell taught how to use the Segway's and made sure we felt comfortable. He had great knowledge of the history of Ybor and a great sense of humor. This is a must do if you come to Ybor and want to learn about the town.

Highly recommend. This was my second time doing this tour and my girlfriend's first time. Russ is an excellent teacher and your nervousness will be gone within the first 5 mins of getting on the Segway. He is very informative about the history of Ybor City and has great jokes. Great way to start our girl's weekend!

Guy was super funny! Learned so much about Ybor city. It was really cool to see all of the old cigar factories and how they have preserved Ybor city. We hung out at Gaspars Grotto afterwards where we took advantage of complementary cocktails. I highly recommend this Segway tour if you are in Tampa.

My wife and grandson were able to use the stand up machines, I was 15 lbs. too heavy. They had 3 hours of fun seeing sites that most people might not get to see or even know about. Their guide was very good at his job and funny as well. He even took time to show individual points of interest to people on the tour.
