Get ready for two hours of being a kid again, while taking in the scenic and secret Tampa vistas from your very own segway on the Magic Carpet Glide Segway Tour! Beginning with one man, Karlavage, and one entrepreneual opportunity to regain a career, this popular riverside Tampa tour began with only 5 segways and a small kiosk by Channelside. As Karlavage soon saw, most people love the opportunity to learn to drive a segway around into the nooks and crannies of an unknown town, and luckily each tour begins with a 20 minute training session on the segway. Segways tend to bring out tourist curiosity, as well as sense of fun, as the strange sensation of shifting your bodyweight to speeds up to 12 mph takes you to places otherwise unexplored by vehicle.
During a Tampa city tour your group will zoom quickly and smoothly through the Tampa Riverwalk and Curtis Hixon Park, giving you the best panoramic city and bay views around! Ride through some of Tampa’s most popular destinations with your personal experienced guide, such as Bayshore Boulevard, Harbour Island, the Tampa Convention Center, and the University of Tampa. You will also see the Amalie Arena and many beachfront and riverfront recreational parks and areas. One of the best things about these tours is the opportunity to see secret views of the city that will even surprise the locals, with the convenient and easy segway access to practically anywhere! Your group will love this exciting take on a Tampa City Tour, and they’ll learn so much about the city along the way!
