Owner description: First and only Segway Tour allowed in a Everglades Habitat. We are located at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Everglades Habitat, 3491 Flying Cow Road, Wellington, Florida. This is a gorgeous Everglades Habitat ( 365 Acres ), with a 70' tall Observation Tower overlooking the entire Habitat and the Everglades, with incredible bird watching. Glide down paved paths as they rise and fall, twist and turn around the most beautiful landscape and wildlife found anywhere in Florida. May even see a Gator.

Our family was visiting the Marriott Ocean Pointe resort last week and my wife and son (15) had been on the Segway tour that went through the city last year when we visited and wanted to do it again. My 11 year old daughter was very disappointed that she did not qualify to drive a Segway because of her age. But we found Green Motion Segway Tours that qualified riders based on weight and she did qualify for this Segway Tour and so we decided to try it out.

It was a blast! First of all, for first-timers like my daughter and myself it feels a lot safer to be traveling miles in a park rather than worrying about cars, curbs and pedestrians in the city. Because it is in a safer environment they are able to allow younger members of the family (as low as 10, possibly) based on the weight requirement for operating the Segway. So our whole family could participate.

My son was a little concerned that the experience would be more 'boring' because it was in a park instead of the city and would be 'slower' based on the fact that his younger sister could now participate. Reality proved those concerns to be completely invalid. Andrew, the manager and our tour guide, was very entertaining and extremely knowledgeable about the park and wildlife. But the one thing he really encouraged to the extent we wanted was to have 'fun' with the amazing capabilities of the Segway. We could go as fast or slow as we wanted, he showed us how to go 'off roading' with the Segway up and down hills and almost 'slalom skiing' through a small grassy area. My kids loved it... they weren't required to form a single line and just follow each other during the entire tour.

The tour included individual ear pieces with walkie talkies so we could communicate with each other and easily hear Andrew as he explained different things around the park. The Segways were new with 'comfort mats' to absorb more vibration. They each came with water and he took pictures using his iPad as well as our camera. He gave us any pictures that he took for free. Oh, and the entire experience was a lot less than the fee for the city tour.

All in all a very fun 2+ hours. We didn't see the ocean or cruise the city but the park was itself scenic and we saw a ton of different birds, turtles, etc. And we really got to enjoy 'playing' with what a Segway can do which was a lot of fun!

Definitely recommended.

Booked the Green Motion Segway Tour located in West Palm Beach. It is 8 miles of paved paths through Okeeheelee Park including wildlife and magnificant scenery. It is a very safe tour because there is little traffic.

Our excellent instructor was Andrew, a real fun guy, who also took us on our two hour guided tour of the park. He made sure we were comfortable with the segways before leaving the parking lot.

These machines have leansteer technology, communication between segways, comfort mats, backpacks attached to Segway for personal belongings and compartment for water bottles, and kickstands. We wore our green bicycle helmets for safety.

A water bottle was supplied by Green Motion. The rates are very reasonable $39 for Early Bird and $49 for other tours plus tax.
Tips welcomed ...believe me you won't mind tipping Andrew as he goes the extra mile making sure you have fun.

We were both nervous, but Andrew took time to explain the machines and had lots of patience. He explained all the dos and dont's of operating the segway.

Reservations are definitely recommended 561-909-7779. They do not ride in the rain. Restrictions: 80 - 265 lbs. Bring sneakers, sunglasses and sunscreen.

Green Motion is planning to build a zip line in the park.
We are hoping to return again next year and will definitely do the segway tour and zip line.

Safety and having fun is number one with Green Motion Segway Tours that is why they are rated #1 Tour Company in West Palm Beach. Guaranteed great family entertainment. Even grandma and grandpa can ride a segway. We took photos to show our children.

Highly recommend Green Motion Segway Tours. They are the best and the location is second to none. There are baseball diamonds, golf course, disc golf, water skiing to name but a few of the activities in the park. There is also a dog kennel with a fancy water fountain for dogs.

For a fun day and a new adventure give Green Motion Segway Tours a try. Put it on your "Bucket List." You will not be disappointed!

We went on a fantastic tour with Andrew. We learned how to use the Segway right away and it was an amazing amount of fun. Andrew enthusiasm and energy for what he is doing elevated this event to one of our vacation highlights!

What a fabulous time we had on the Green Motion Segway Tours. We first called a company that was in the city (without knowing about this tour), we were blessed that we could not go on that tour because my nephew was not yet 14 years old. Our family had done a segway tour before in Atlanta and toured the city along the busy streets. It was a lot of fun, but was stressful as a parent because you were very close to all the traffic. The Green Motion tour was great! You are in a huge park with lakes, hills, birds, golf, families, pets, etc. Your tour is narrated the entire two hours so you know what you are looking at without having to stop constantly to hear. You wear a small ear piece, so you can hear as well as talk to your family or friends while you ride. Before you even get on your segway, you are given very specific instructions. It is not stop and go like it was in Atlanta because of all the stop lights. You're able to go at a speed you are comfort with, on a paved path, on the grass, up and down hills, and even play a little with the segway. We had a great time. Very much worth the money! In fact, my 14 year old son and 12 1/2 year old nephew said this was their favorite thing out of our week spent in West Palm & Ft. Lauderdale! Definitely plan to do it again if we come back to West Palm! Thanks so much Andrew for your hospitality!!

This was a wonderful tour. Your guide Andrew was realy cool and fun. The park you go through is realy amazing, and also seeing all these types of birds was cool. You get to see these professional skiers ski, and and see the qualifying bmx track for the pros. It's worth the money you spend on it.
