Electric Glide Tours
Segway Tours Tampa & Ybor City
The Most Fun You Can Have Standing Up!
In 2012, a husband and wife team started EGT and still own and operate the business today. If you want to read some of the fine reviews, just check us out on TripAdvisor and Yelp. Search Electric Glide Tours and notice how people have raved about our commitment to safety and fun. We focus on the PERSON first, not the tour. So if you want to bring your fully capable, octogenarian grandmother on a Segway tour, we’ll teach her with the same patience and care that we use with you and your 12-year old. You should not miss one of the greatest Tampa tours.
SAFETY is our #1 priority
We’ve instructed thousands of humans to be able to safely take a Segway Tour. Believe it or not most people can ride a Segway and taking a guided Segway Tour is one of the fun things to do in Tampa to see Tampa’s Historic District, known as Ybor City. What determines the level of ability is a couple of factors. First, is your ability/capacity for what we call “doing things.” Don’t worry if you’re clumsy or uncoordinated. We’ve trained many people who claimed to trip over their own feet and they rode a Segway just fine. We’ve also instructed people with disabilities and challenges of all kinds. Some of these include: Autism, Down’s Syndrome, even below-the-knee amputees, and what might be the world’s first blind Segway rider. Yes, your read that right. We taugh a blind man to ride a Segway. And for the record, he loved it.
EGT is different from other Segway companies in many ways, but one main thing that elevates us is that we instruct for EACH individual human being. People come in all shapes, sizes and abilities. What works for one person, does not always work the same for another, so that’s the way we train. Are you a little larger in the middle than the shoulders and hip area? Then you’ll ride a Segway differently than someone who is smaller in the middle. Taller or shorter, fit o not-so fit, athletically inclined or not so much, we’ll teach you to have a safe and enjoyable Segway experience.
The tour was amazing and the history behind the Ybor City was very interesting.
Russell the instructor and owner was very thorough and very knowledgeable. He was interactive and even told jokes. I definitely highly recommend this tour. I now consider myself a pro thanks to Russell lol! Thank you!
One of the most fun things to do in Tampa, for sure! Had a blast sightseeing in the historic area of Ybor City and Russell our tour guide has a great sense of humor and a great deal of knowledge of the area. My highest recommendation for anyone visiting the Tampa area and looking to do something different and really fun.
