Owner description: All tours are by appointment only. Every tour, large or small feels like a personal experience. There is no office to find. We meet in a public park and begin training and tour from there. We specialize in human being Segway Experiences. We've trained humans of all shapes, sizes and ages. We prefer to train the individual and let their physical ability guide them through the process. Individuals previously thought inable to ride a Segway have found great success (and fun) riding with us. We specialize in people with physical challenges. Some of the individuals we've training have challenges such as: Autism, Downs Syndrome, Prosthesis & Short Stature (Dwarfism) We offer xceptional Segway tours for exceptional people! Offering Private/Specialized events and on-location tour experiences.

Loved the ride, we had rode segways before but I really enjoyed the history of the town. Russell was fun and quite witty.

This tour was fun and informative. We had previously taken Segway tours in Tampa at Channelside, so we wanted to go somewhere different. Russell did a great job teaching us and our guests, and told us many interesting things about Ybor City. I recommend this tour highly! We added at the wine tasting tour, which was great and good value. Make sure you don't have to drive right after the wine tour!

We chose this company based on user reviews and were very happy we did. Compared to two tours we have been on in other cities, this was by far the best, especially for first-timers. The owner is very personable, a great instructor, and loves sharing information about Ybor City and Tampa. He also took photos of our group in front of many points of interest to email to us as well as short "action" videos of us riding the Segways. And the Segways are the newest models in immaculate condition. Try it...Segway tours are a wonderful way to tour a new city, and you'll have a great time on this one!

Recently took the tour with my wife. Neither one of us had ever been on a Segway and my wife was a bit apprehensive. Russell was a great instructor and an even better tour guide. We completely enjoyed the tour and the Segways.

I've gone on this tour two times with different family members. Russell clearly loves his job, and people. Can't go wrong!
