“Great Segway tour to get you familiar with the Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2011

We recommend this tour on your first day of a vacation to Anna Maria Island. The 1-hour tour provides you with history about the island and shows you interesting places to visit for your vacation. We wouldn't of even found a couple of small cute shops without Casey and Robert showing us down the side roads.

The tour starts with a 5-minute Segway lesson. They are actually very easy to use. Then, Casey leads the pack down some side roads. Each Segway was a hand radio where Casey and Robert are talking about different parts of the island. All you have to do is listen and enjoy the ride.

This tour will be the highlight of your trip and you will always remember it. Be sure to sign up. Remember, go on your first day of your vacation, because you will learn about some real secret gems to visit.

“Touring an Island via Segways is far more fun than imagined!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2011

My sisters visited me from out of state, and we went for a tour via Segways to view Anna Maria Island - thought it might be fun. It was MORE than fun!! We had such a good time with our tour guides, Casey and Robert! They had great information about the history of the island and pointed out special points of interest or restaurants that we would certainly have missed had we just cruised around in our car.
All you need is flip-flops - shorts/T-shirt or such - Bring a camera! There is a small pouch on the Segway for personal items. It's up to you how long you want to tour 1 or 2 hours... we recommend taking an hour for south tour one day and an hour tour north the second day!! It's such a beautiful area and seeing it cruising on a Segway honestly is great fun!
My husband and another couple went again the following weekend! Even if you have an opportunity with another company, I would suggest you try this one! Robert and Casey are very friendly - island style - very relaxed! They seem like friends when all is done. The restaurant you leave from is a great place to begin the morning tour - can get a bite to eat, and you're off!! We love it!! Becoming a favorite spot for us!

“Such a great way to see and learn about Anna Maria Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2011

My friend, her sister and I took thoroughly enjoyed ourSegway tour through "Zegway by the Beach" on Anna Maria Island, Florida. The day's weather was wonderful and the scenery was GLORIOUS!! Casey was a fabulous guide and her tips on things to do and places to see as well as her brief history of the area was very much appreciated. This was my 3rd Segway tour having done one on the Tampa Riverwalk and one in Copenhagen, denmark and was one of my favorites. If you are in the area you MUST spend 2+ hours on this tour. You will NOT be disappointed.

“Great fun and a great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2011

I had done a Segway tour in St. Thomas and thought I would get little from this second experience....was I wrong. In the end the enjoyment was not the vehicle, which is very cool, but the sights of Anna Maria Island and the conversation along the way with Casey and Robert about the area's history....they were great.
