My daughter and I loved our tour with Michelle.

We had a great day and the tour was excellent. Erin was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable with the area that we covered. The beginning demo give by Erin on the use of the Segway was great and made people feel comfortable using them. I highly recommend that everyone take this tour. Warren and Nancy Allison

My boyfriend and I took a mini getaway to Tampa (we live in the fort myers area) and we decided to do this tour to get a better look around Tampa and it exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide went through how to operate the segway since we had never done it before and it was very easy to follow.... More

Erin with Michelle's help guided our very large group. They did a great job making sure we were all safe and that we had a fun time while learning about Tampa. It was great spending time with them cruising around the waterfront.

What a great experience! Our guide was fun and energetic and very patient with us as first time riders. She was flexible about adapting the tour to include things we might be interested in and provided good narration along the way. Would definitely do again!
