    What a great tour to see this beautiful city. Louisa was the perfect guide who answered all our questions. Highly recommend this tour and guide.

    It was a typical warm, humid August morning when we arrived 20 minutes early for our 2 Hour Historic Segway Tour. The owner and our guide (aka Doo) had the Segways ready to go which, after a little training, enabled us to start our tour early. Doo was very respectful of ensuring we were comfortable with our traveling speed and provided numerous photo stops which we greatly appreciated. It was amazing how we easily covered over 8 miles of historic and waterfront area.

    My husband and I have taken Segway tours at Disney, but DOO surpassed all expectations! We were fortunate to have her as a personal guide (no one else signed up for the morning). After a short safety class, we were scooting around downtown St. Petersburg! We stopped in the shade for mini-history lessons ... just enough to make it interesting, but not too much. Any questions were answered. Then we cranked the Segway up to 13 mph as we toured outside the Dali Museum, the marina, a palm tree garden, the old (and new) houses and the Tampa Bay waterfront. I would 1000% recommend this tour for visitors (and native Floridians)! Doo will not disappoint!

    Great tour and the segways were easy to ride. A great way to cover a lot of ground and see lots of sights. Tour guide was awesome and very knowledgeable.

    The Segway is a great way to tour the city. Nobody in our family had ridden one before but it was very easy to learn. We learned a lot about this beautiful city. We saw a lot of wildlife including dolphins. Doo is an excellent tour guide. Highly recommended!

    Felt very comfortable navigating throughout the city routes under the direction of Louise. She was constantly on the lookout for traffic for her “little ducklings” following her. Thank you, Louise, for your graciousness and direction on our Segway tour.

    Tour guide Doo was absolutely amazing! We saw and learned a lot about St. Petersburg. What a beautiful town! We also saw manatees in the wild.

    Our Guide Doo was knowledgeable, courteous and prompt. She thoroughly went over the safety portion of the tour in a fun way that taught the lesson while keeping things light. She pointed out things of interest along the way and answered all of our questions. As a local, she was able to give us the history of this great city and keep us interested. My wife wants to plan a trip back to do paddle-boarding with Doo next time. This was an excellent way for us to have an interactive excursion. Great value and we would recommend this trip to everyone.
