There is not a better time to be had in Tampa. Come and experience the fun and adventure to be had riding your very own Segway I2 personal transporter through beautiful downtown Tampa and its surrounding islands. Admire the sun setting over the water, dolphins playing and even a few celebrity homes as you whiz about on a Segway personal transporter.

My family loves doing this little trip around Vinoy Park and the Pier in St Pete. Once in a while, it pops up on Groupon too for an even better deal. Plan this little getaway, especially if you've never 'segwayed' before! Awesome Family Fun!

Had a afternoon to visit Tampa, the Riverwalk is a great place to visit and first time on Segway machines was a great experience. JP our tour guide gave us a orientation and tour of the river walk.

My teenager and I had the best time touring the bayshore area, the university of Tampa and the new breezeway Boardwalk along the waterfront. Bob was an excellent guide. We enjoyed the quiet Sunday morning and cool temps and restaurant advice too. 😄
