When in the Lake Wales area plan a Segway tour of Kissimmee State Park. You'll not be disappointed. First, Jeff does an excellent job ensuring everyone is comfortable with the safe operation of the Segway. Then during the actual tour Jeff imparts interesting information and fun facts of the park, ecosystem, and history of the area. We also saw wildlife... More

Again we had a great time, Jeff choose another route, he is a passionated guide, we learn from the area and seen birds and wild animals. It is a really great experience to be on a segway in such a nice part of Florida.

Loved the tour! Having never ridden a Segway, we wondered how we would do, but Jeff quickly taught us how to navigate around, and in no time at all we were on our way to a factual and fun-filled tour. Some people can teach and Jeff is one of them. His cheerful presentation and knowledge of the history behind Kissimmee... More

Jeff gave us a safe and pleasurable way to learn how to ride the Segway before taking us on a fantastic tour of the park. The four adults in our group are all from New Hampshire so we found the park tour to be much more enjoyable than a Segway tour in town, not only cooler but more informative. Jeff... More

If you've never ridden a Segway before, DO IT! It's easy and such fun. If you HAVE ridden a Segway before, you must go along for Jeff's continual and fascinating narrative. He uses a superb, clear and comfortable audio system so everyone can hear him (plus he rides backwards anyway, so you could probably hear him even without the audio... More

The Segway tour was great. They are so easy to learn to ride. Jeff our guide was patient and made sure everyone was comfortable with them before we took off. Nice leisurely tour, we weren't rushed. Learned a lot about Florida and Kissimmee lake. Was the best thing we've done on our trip so far. Beautiful weather and scenery, very... More
