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.

If you like history you'd love this tour, and it's lots of fun. Russell, the owener and our guide, is very well informed about the history of the area and obviously loves what he does. Ybor City is a unique place with a unique history. Loved the feral roosters running aroud the streets.

Born and raised in Two Rivers I thought I knew it all, well Russell knows so much more. Our Segway tour was great fun and the experience of learning to ride a Segway is made easy with Russell's instructions and watchful eye. Riding through the park trails, then down the beach area and a stop at Washington House made for a delightful afternoon with one of my best buddies. Just a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours, will definitely do it again!!!

Russell is probably the best segway host to date having segwayed in St. Petersburg, Tampa, St. Augustine, Naples and Pensacola in Florida plus in Philadelphia. Russell is conscious of safety first. Excellent tour of old and new Ybor including a 911 memorial and sheriff's memorial recently opened. Ask to see the turn of the century ethnic social clubs or worker welfare and health.He provides cold water and stages photos so relax and enjoy.

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.
