“Segway First”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

My wife and I had the pleasure of riding a segway through a plantation and experiencing nature. It was very enjoyable and had a great time. Maren and Greg Arnett, owners, are super and most accomodating. It was a pleasure getting to know them aand they do an excellent job. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the Jacksonville or Amelia Island area. Thanks, Garry

“Great ! Educational, entertaining and lots of fun.”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

This was our third time on the segways, but the first for Little Talbot Island. They do a great job. Info on plants, animals and history. Insects may be a problem in some months, but March is perfect.

“Great Experience!”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

My wife and I, and our teenage daughter loved the Segway trip. Being able to ride into areas, that we would have never been able to explore on our own, was really fun. We had never ridden Segways, but Greg, Maren, and Lynn were great trainers prior to our ride. This is a unique experience that you don't want to miss if you visit Amelia Island or surrounding areas.

“Fun Excursion”
Reviewed March 14, 2012 via mobile

This is our 3rd segway tour and the first on the "off road" model. I prefer the nibler street model but traveling in sand over roots and generally rough terain was way cool. I wish these tours were longer. We went on the point Isebel trip and visited the Kingsley Plantation before hand by car.

“Fun, scenic, well worth it”
Reviewed March 9, 2012

Went with a group of 10 others and we had a blast. Love going through the various topography, an old golf course gone back to nature, scrub, trees, very easy. The lesson given at the start was perfect. The tour goes all the way out to the water which is nice.
