Geff's segway tour around lake kissimmee national park was a fantastic experience, it was one of the highlights of our florida holiday. Jeff had us all up and segwaying like pro's in minutes. His knowledge of the area and all its flora and fauna are boundless and it was a real treat to share this and see the real florida... More

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

Jeff our guide was very knowledgeable, very patient, an excellent teacher and a great people person. We were all a little nervous about getting on the Segway but he made it easy to learn and be comfortable in no time.... 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

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

Jeff and his wife are wonderful and knowledgeable. I have been twice on his tour and it was outstanding. He loves his job and we got to see so much wildlife. You won't be sorry you made this trip.

We had never been on a Segway and I was somewhat fearful I would be unable to do this with my poor balance. Jeff was an excellent instructor and very patient and made sure we were all very comfortable and safe before beginning the tour. He was very knowledgeable and you could tell he loved wildlife and the area. We... More

We met Jeff last week for a Segway tour of Lake Kissimmee State Park and it was great. Jeff is very personable and is very patient with rookie riders. There was no pressure and he took the time to be sure we were comfortable riding one. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and will do it again. Thanks Jeff.
