Never been on a Segway before and we were headed into a national park for a two hour tour---yes we are adventure seekers, or just crazy old people! What a great ride....the owner was actually present to start us off and we had two guides with us that were very informative and easy to listen to. The trip took a break at the Kingsley Plantation about halfway thru where we could also tour the buildings made of shells, visit a bookstore and take pics if beautiful river way that bordered the property. The tour finished up with another trek thru the park, tortoise sightings and ending with some free time to play on the Segways. Quality equipment, guides and fun memory....just do it!!!

We segwayed the Fort Geroge State Park. The guide was fun and the portable listening devices were handy. It was on a path thru the woods to the water. We saw a gopher turtle. It was nice, but kinda blah. They did a very good job of training the beginners on the segway. It was good and I'm glad I did it. But probably wouldn't do it again. Not much to see.

We thoroughly enjoyed the EcoMotion Segway tour on Fort George Island. The guides are knowledgeable and fun! The segways are very easy to operate and we enjoyed the trip through the forest and to the beach. I was hesitant to go on the 2 hour tour to the plantation but in hindsight for $20 more it's a bargain and I'm sure I would've enjoyed a longer tour.

My sister learned of this location for Segway tours in the Ft George Wilderness area. We had 1 experienced and 3 newbie take a tour 12/22.

I don't remember everyone's names on the staff but they were all wonderful. The office manager made us feel warm and welcome and answered all our questions. The set up, training and safety awareness were top notch.

The tour uses the off road style of Seqways. This makes for an enjoyable day for all.

Very professional, knowledgeable and fun!

Please go if you can make it part of your Jacksonville Visit. Make sure to schedule reservations.

First timers on a Segway... on our Jacksonville Florida vacation went on the Fort George Island Dune Ridge Trail to Point Isabel Shores Segway tour. It was such a blast! The owners Maren & Greg and tour guide Donna did an awesome job of showing us how to safely operate the Segway's. They also gave us plenty of time to zipping around the grounds getting comfortable on them before we headed out on the tour. Marem and Donna were our guides and were very knowledgeable about the history and ecosystem. They also let us spend a little more time on the segways after the tour which was fun! Highly recommend this two-wheeled tour.
