Took this tour today for a bachelorette weekend and we had a blast. Called them last minute to set up the tour and they were super nice about fitting us in. The Segways were amazing, the sites beautiful, and the guides hilarious and knowledgeable. Would recommend this to anyone.

“Ecomotion Segway tours”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Amelia Island - they offer 2 tours. One is at the Kingsley Plantation park and the other one is at Fort Clinch Park. We did both tours because it was SO MUCH FUN! The gals were very informative tour guides, introducing us to the turtles and other wildlife, plants and island stories. The Segway is easy to operate and it was really a great for my husband to get around as he has some bad joints. Great tour. It's a must!!

“Fun way to tour”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

We have a family of 4, all had a blast. Easy to learn how to ride and guides were friendly and informative. No real ruff terrain, but paths are quiet and pieceful. Great way to tour the island and see the historic site and nature. Tour staff included a bottle of water and a snack in your bag which was nice. We will do it again here or take an Ecomotion tour of Fort Clinch on Amelia Island. Highly recommended.

“You can do this!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

My group consisted of two middle-aged women and our mothers, none of whom had ever ridden a Segway. Needless to say, we were apprehensive, but Our tour guides were so good at teaching, and patient! After about 20 minutes, the group was proficient enough to navigate the trail at Ft. George Island (the only tour that fit into our schedule.) The guides pointed out various plants and their uses, along with some butterflies. Animals were scarce that day, but we did see 2 Gopher Tortoises. Overall it was great fun, and we were very glad that we had challenged ourselves to do this. We would definitely do another Ecomotion Segway Tour next visit!

“HAVE to do this!”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

I recently visited Amelia Island and was looking for something different to do. I came across Segway tours in Fort Clinch State Park, and decided to check it out. I took the 11:00am tour and was SO glad I did! It was so much fun and really EASY to do, as I am not the most coordinated person in the world. During the tour we saw baby gopher tourtises with their dad, Freddy (the enthusiastic guides name the turtles), a baby armadillo with their mom, and some really cool spiders. After the tour we checked out the fort, which was really interesting also. If your in town, this is definatly the trip to take! Can't wait to do it again!
