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.

This is a very unique way to sight see the beautiful city. I booked a Sunday tour from Groupon got it at 50$ for two. I went with my wife and did all the booking over the phone easily. I did this with GyroGlides which is located at the Meuseum of Fine arts at St. Petes. The person in charge Mr David is a lovely person. We were there on time and he was all set. He explained how to operate the Segway initially and made sure we had enough practise and were comfirtable before we set off. Then started the fun. We went about some beautiful parks driveways marinas beaches and hotels and some of the houses that are very old and beautiful. Mr. David explained everything neatly and never rushed us through. The Segway itself becomes fun to use and operate once you are comfirtable. The tour lasted for a little over 90 mins and My wife and myself enjoyed every bit of it. if you are new to this place you HAVE to do this. there is nothing you will regret. Was fun all the way!!!

Our Grandson wanted to take a Segway tour...glad he did. We had a great time. Jeff did a great job "teaching" us how to use the Segway and keeping the tour along Tampa's River Walk and around the University of Tampa enjoyable.

Starting point hard to find. Equipment ok. Guide, Dylan was pleasant and somewhat informative but pace was too slow and area traveled too confined. Would have liked to have toured the University campus.

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
