Great fun. Four of us, all North of 60 years old, had a delightful wonderful March day on the Sedgeways. Our guide Aaron Rogers, was knowledgeable about the area and was very reassuring about our ability to ride these fun little machines. It was a terrific day.

Riding a Segway was definitely on my bucket list. My daughter and I signed up on a beautiful day in Tampa. Aaron Henry did a great job of highlighting all the interesting stuff on the river walk. Super interesting, and the Segway was a blast! Don't be intimidated, they are really easy to ride.

8 people ranging from 12 to 83 years of age. Daniel did a great job showing us how to ride the Segways and then led us on a fun tour.

The route is very good. Our guide Michelle was nice and helpful. The initial training Michelle gave was very helpful and made us feel easy and confident. This was first time for me and my 12 year olds. We feel it was moneys worth.

Fantastic tour. Great instruction in how to use the Segways. Very patient tour guides as our group learned how to use them. Then, we were able to cover an amazing amount of ground in a relatively short time. We saw most of the Riverwalk and much of the University of Tampa. They machines were great. The tour guide was even... More

I like to go on Segway tours and Magic Carpet is great. Shannan that takes the reservations is always sweet to work with. I buy my tickets over the phone and she will mail them or send them via your computer. I've been taking guest for about five years St. Petersburg is a wonderful two hour tour. They give instruction... More

First, let me start with my wife and I are Tampa natives. We've lived here all our lives. It has been exciting to see downtown come alive over the last few years with a host of wonderful things to see and do. The crown jewel is the Riverwalk, a 2.5 mile esplanade along Channelside and the Hillsborough River with parks,... More

My wife and I, both seniors, decided that we would try the Segway "vehicle". Just a few minutes with the guide who was also the mentor for getting on board and controlling the segway and we were comfortable with the experience but not so much as to become over confident. We participated in the ride on the beautiful River Walk... More

Aaron and Dan were terrific tour guides and incredibly patient with us as first-time Segway users. Definitely recommend the Segway tours as an easy, fun way to do a guided tour of the city, especially along the river.
