I had tried a Segway last year and frankly I did not do well! The only one in my group to fall off! This Segway tour with Remi aka "Segway Daddy" was such a corrective experience for me! He was cautious and instructive -ensuring that each of us had at least some measure of confidence. The ride through Ft DeSoto... More

My daughter and I were treated above and beyond ! She was taken so well care of. These people were so informative and had the patience of angels. Definitely put this place on your bucket list. A very exciting but also relaxing tour of Ft DeSoto park. Beautiful views of the water and animal life. AAA

Most of the tour is on fairly rough trails and you're riding on smallish Segways, which makes for a somewhat uncomfortable ride. Segways are not dangerous, but Remi is so overly cautious that he's acts like a mother hen. You don't get to tour the actual fort, all you get to do is go on paths that are not on... More

Because Remi operates inside the State Park, he cannot have a permanent building so he works from his van and picks up customers at a mall meeting spot outside of the park. This also avoids the park entry fee and bridge toll for each customer, while offering rides in a spectacular setting. Remi is highly safety conscious (much more than... More

A friend we were visiting arranged for us to take a Segway tour at Ft. DeSoto Park. I was the youngest of the four, fast approaching my 70th birthday, and none of us had ever been on a Segway before. Remi took plenty of time to teach each of us how to get on and off the Segway and how... More

Exciting, fabulous, thrilling, fun experience! Remi will have you up and running around on your Segway within 5 minutes, and will guide you through the paradise of Ft. De Soto Park. Flawless beaches, crystal blue water, birds all around. If you've never been on a Segway, start here!

He was accommodating and thorough in his teaching of how to ride a Segway. His price was reasonable, as well as the Segway's speed. Good way to see the park.

Went towards sunset. Remi was easygoing and accomodating- even picked us up at our hotel nearby. Taught the 7 and 10 year old quickly and patiently reminded them of safety rules throughout the trip. Imagine going on a silent, gliding personal mover through Jurrasic Park. Very relaxing 90 minutes through de Soto Park. One word of caution- if going near... More

This was my third segway tour, once in Prague and once in Cincinnati. This one was very slow. Remi was more concerned with keeping the Segways out of harm than he was with us enjoying our time with him. This was very slow and he wouldnt let us do anything other than stay in line and follow him slowly. Would... More

This was our 2nd trip with Remi on the Segways. The first time we took our visitors and had a great time. This time my husband took me back for my Birthday and we had just as much fun. Remi makes it very interesting. The ride is relaxing and serene. Everyone can do it with instructions that Remi gives before... More
