The only way to see the beautiful beach town of Santa B is by Segway. Ask for "Iver" as guide for Historic tour. He knows everything, and is a history major! Wow, what a blast, and what beauty. Iver was so much fun, and made the tour so enjoyable. Ya gotta do this! Thanks Segway!

I highly recommend Segway Tours of Santa Barbara. Very friendly & very knowledgeable about their community & it's history. You're not just riding around around on a Segway, as a visitor to Santa Barbara, you learn about the town. Our tour guide, Mariah made it a very informative ride around the beachfront area. My granddaughter & I had a great... More

This was a first for my husband and I but it will definitely not be the last Segway experience! What a great way to see Santa Barbara. We did the Old Santa Barbara tour with Mariah. It was a blast and so entertaining. Definitely more informative than your standard tour and you can see everything close up. I would recommend... More

We did this in August and had never driven a segway before. Easy to learn. Robby was our tour leader, it is a great way to see the city. We had about 7 stops for photos, he was really knowledgable about the city. We would do it again!

Rob our guide was very passionate about giving his guests the best experience he could. He was extremely knowledgable about the area and we learnt a lot in our short time with him. We felt that we got great value and saw sights we would never have known about otherwise. Thanks Rob

This was brilliant fun, riding along the streets, parks and coast of Santa Barbara! We did the 2 hour Butterfly Beach tour and it was gorgeous. The Segways are easy to learn, great training to build our confidence before we hit the streets and the perfect way to get around. Our guide, Mariah was fantastic, funny and knowledgeable and impressive... More

Enjoyed the sights of Santa Barbara on our favorite tour vehicle: the Segway! God's gift to tourism, in my humble opinion.... The city admittedly doesn't have the same sights available as other places we've similarly toured like San Fran, Washington, etc. but we were able to enjoy the Missions, etc. as well as just the pleasure of Segwaying through beautiful...

Wow. Most fun I've had in a long time. Josh was incredible. Professional and fun loving at the same time. Recommend this for anyone young or old. We are close to 70 and had a ball.
