“Great Fun!!”
Reviewed October 8, 2011

After reading TA reviews we booked this tour and it was the highlight of our trip. I was a bit worried about learning to ride but we had a detailed lesson and was watched closely by our guide as we toured. The tour was fun and informative and so much easier than walking tours. Would highly recommend!!

“Fun and informative "Roll" through Jacksonville.”
Reviewed July 22, 2010

My husband, best friend and I took the Segway tour through Jacksonville and loved every minute of it. I've been to Jacksonville before (and gone on a local tour) and my friend actually lives in the the next town over and we learned new things and went to places that we've never been to before.

The first thing that we did was take a little "crash" course on how to use the Segways and prevent ourselves from actually crashing out on the road. The guides were patient and watchful and in tune with how odd the sensation was for all the Segway newbies. It took about 20 minutes of obstacle course practice for the group to pass and get to go out on the road.

We had so much fun!!! We cruised around town for about 2 1/2 hours and learned about the history of Jakcsonville as well as more current interests too. There is no way that we could have covered the area that we did on foot and we went to places that a trolley car couldn't reach.

We would definitely do it again and will look for such an attraction in other cities as well. Out of curiosity, I asked and you must be 16 years old and at least 100 pounds in order to use a Segway.) I highly recommend checking it out!

{Updated Response} ... age limits have changed. Call us for specific details! We still ride where no Trolley Car can go, and cover far more area than a walking tour ever could!

Thanks for your review!
