What You Can Expect

St Petersburg Historical Segway Tour

The Pier in St Petersburg

There are walking tours and there are bus tours, but this unique Segway tour provides an entirely new perspective on the city of St Petersburg in Florida.

Your tour begins at North Straub Park with a brief but thorough training session to make sure everyone feels comfortable and knowledgeable about their Segway. A helmet and safety equipment, plus bottled water and an audio headset are provided.

With the training out of the way, it’s time to hit the open road.

On this 1-hour Segway tour around St Petersburg, cruise along Bay Shore Drive next to Tampa Bay, past Victorian-style homes to the downtown area. Learn about the history and culture of the Tocobaga Indians, who lived in small villages at the northern end of Tampa Bay from the year 900 to the 1500s. It is believed that their princess was the inspiration for Disney’s story of Pocahontas.

Then visit the spot where the world’s first commercial flight took off — the St Petersburg-Tampa Airboat Line on January 1, 1914. See pictures of the pilot, Tony Jannus, as well as the aircraft he used on that first flight. Continue down to St Petersburg Pier, a landmark and tourist spot that extends into Tampa Bay. Learn about its development and importance to the city and check out the once-endangered brown pelicans mixing with the locals and diving into the water for food.

Finally, return to North Straub Park to conclude the tour.

Doo was extreemly knowledgeable about the history of the area. Made it interesting and fun to hear the history. She paced the tour just right - with enough breaks to rest legs and have some water. She could talk on other topics other than just the historic tour. Highly recommend her to anyone wanting to experience a ride on a Segway and to learn about Historic St Pete's. A must if you have kids!!!

The St. Pete historical Segway tour was an outstanding tour. Our tour guide, Doo, was absolutely incredible and insightful. She was constantly offering little tidbits of historical information that was totally unknown to my Segway partner and I. This was a pleasant surprise since we have lived in the area for a number of years and had no idea of why some things were the way they were or how the names of certain structures, streets, avenues, etc. received their names.. She was very open and knowledgeable when answering any questions we may have offered up. I would certainly entertain going again in the very near future because it was just a fun and entertaining 2 hours. Doo always seem to know when a break was in order which was most appreciated because the day was quite hot and humid. For those that have some athletic ability and good foot/leg strength then I would recommend taking a Segway tour and I would most certainly recommend booking with Doo and her fellow tour guides either directly or through Viator. Using Viator was so simple and easy to do and the reviews they set forth on this particular historical tour were absolutely "spot on" so to speak. I thoroughly enjoyed my Segway ride and became quite comfortable with the use of a Segway due to the excellent "preliminary training" that Doo offered... Look forward to going again...

The tour was great fun as well as informative. Doo does a great job and I highly recommend the tour. I wouldn't mind doing it again just to ride the Segway.
