We did this tour courtesy of a Group On Deal. We had an absolute blast taking a tour of Bayshore,Riverwalk and also Davis Island. We would definitely do this again. One word of advice do it during the cooler months. It gets really hot in Tampa during the summer.

The tour guide, Daniel, was a enthusiastic, well knowledge, good instructor, and very flexible. Although, we had 1.5 hour tour, he let us wait at U_Le_Le Bar to get freshened up so it was closer to 2 hours. I wouldn't recommend anyone with strict timetable do this tour as it can vary depending on who you are with. Although, Tampa... More

We went on a Segway tour with Magic Carpet Glide. It was wonderful. I was afraid at first but it turned out to be very easy. The tour guide watched us and took a group of us along the Hillsborough River in Tampa. The area is beautiful, with restaurants and a river walkway. Wonderful ride.

I've only been on a Segway twice and both times were with Magic Carpet Glide within a 6 year span. Once again, it did not disappoint. There's a lot more to downtown Tampa since the last time I was there. The tour guide Daniel was great and made it fun. If you're looking for something different to do and a... More

My wife had taken the Segway tour in the past and recommended it when I was looking for something to do outside with two 14 year old boys. It was, by far, their highlight of the trip!

We loved our Segway tour of Tampa Bay. Mitch our tour guide was awesome. He had a lot of knowledge of the area and we covered a lot of ground.

Bobby was our tour guide. He was funny and well informed. Plenty of facts and knowledge. Segway was easy to use, never been on one before but picked it up easily. Couldn't recommend highly enough. Will do again.
