St Petersburg Historical Segway Tour
Coast along Tampa Bay, pass beautiful Victorian-style houses, and learn why the city was once called the ‘City of Green Benches.’
As you glide through the downtown area behind your guide, learn about the culture and history of the Tocobaga Indians who once lived in the area. Hear how their mysterious spiritual burial mounds once covered the entire region, and discover a little-known fact about the tribe’s princess, who’s said to have inspired the Disney story of Pocahontas.
Visit the location where the world's first recorded commercial flight took off from and see pictures of the man who made history, as well as the plane he used for the groundbreaking flight. Continue down the beautiful St Petersburg Pier, where you’ll learn about its history and importance to the development of the area, and get an up-close view of the once-endangered brown pelicans bathing in the sun.
You’ll then return to North Straub Park to conclude your tour.

We did Segway tours a couple times before in different cities and this time was truly unique; the city itself is amazing but the girl in charge of the tour (sorry can’t remember her name) she was absolutely perfect, she made us feel super comfortable and safe, she is so knowledgeable and kind. We recommend this tour 150% !
EXCELLENT - we were fortunate to have a private tour for our group of 5 people. The tour was excellent and fun, but the stop at Sunken Gardens was the highlight. Our Segway guide was just awesome and knew so much about the marine and plant life in the area. Great for our teen nieces as well as the adults. I would do the exact same tour again the next time family visits!!
This was an excellent tour. Doo's was great and this is a worthwhile St Pete tour. Spent sufficient time on learning the Segway and she provided water. Rest stops were right on time and seeing the dolphins was additional benefit.
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!!!
