Owner description: 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.

Our group of four joined two others for a first ever Segway experience, we enjoyed it immensely. Our tour guide was extremely encouraging and helpful in our 20 minute instruction and then took us on a magic carpet glide around channelside and Tampa Would definitely do this again

We took the tour with Dylan and had a great time. He seemed very knowledgeable about the area. Cruising along the riverwalk was very scenic. If you have never done a Segway before, put it on your bucket list and get it done. This is our third experience with Segway tours. Always a blast!

We have been on many Segway tours but this was by far the best one we have ever experienced!
We went on the Riverwalk tour from Channelside. The area for the Segways was wide and unobstructed. We only went close to a sidewalk once. We had a beginner with us but Geoff made her feel like a pro by giving her the extra attention and guidance she needed to not feel nervous.
He also made the tour fun by offering a lot of stories about the area and the landmarks we encountered.
We definitely plan to go back again for the Davis Island tour.

Dylan was great as a tour guide and we had a beautiful tour of the channel and some landmarks of the city. Don't forget to buy a Nathan's hot dog when you take a break. Definitely recommend this.

This is our fourth Segway tour and our second one in Tampa. Our first Tampa tour was two years ago and they changed the tour route this time. We spent about 1 hour and 40 minutes and traveled around some interesting areas. They do not have an office at this location and we have also found this on the other tours in different cities. The meeting location is easy to find and the place you pick up the Segway is only a storage room which is a short walking distance away. The tour operator was friendly and gave out some interesting facts. There were eight of us and he needed to wait until everyone had stopped around him before talking.
