Miami: Ocean Drive Segway Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 30 minutes
We really enjoyed this tour, and our guide Gina was very good and enjoyable to be with for the 2-3 hour tour. It's a walking tour, but it's very easy walking, punctuated by frequent stops and opportunities to sit down. The tour was a good chance for us to see South Beach, as we were first timers to the area. So we enjoyed the historic architecture and the beachy ambience. Of course this is a culinary tour, so food and drink are involved. And to that point, our initial meeting place was a restaurant where we all introduced ourselves (around 12-15 people on our tour as I recall), and enjoyed a popular drink from Colombia (a most interesting combo of beer and orange cream soda - quite better than what you might think), as well as a Colombian inspired empanada, and the most amazing ceviche we've ever had, which was said to be a Peruvian preparation. We made three more stops for food, and keep in mind these are all what you would think of as apps or small plates, and a gelato dessert stop.
hagen was the single best and most import part of this trip he picks you up has water and soda in the back of a yeti cold as ice and has a extremity welcoming sence you will feel extremely comfy on our way and back from your jet ski ride he was the guy that drives you from your hotle and back he has an extremely vast knowledge on the area you go to it like a tour when he drives and he will even go the extra step to drive you back from the tour to your hotle with a tour of everything he took us down roads we didn't know existed told us whre we should go and even handles your freeeee photos and videos he didn't even mention once he wanted or accepts tips but we tipped him rightfully so he also speaks English Spanish and German so he will be good for any person the tour was amazing the guide was sweet knowledgeable and let us have fun with the right safty standards of course I highly recomend this and wish anyone to do this get the experience we got from this worth every penny
We booked a next day tour and were contacted promptly about the details. Our guide, Hagen picked us up at the scheduled time and provided a wonderful experience. He first drove us to the marina and on the way, gave us a great overview of Miami history. We hopped on the wave runners for about an hour with a different guide. The wave running experience wasn’t necessarily a guide but more of a “letting us run a little loose” on the Bay Area-which was really fun. We followed behind him but were able to go pretty fast! We then met back up w/Hagen after a quick shower/change. He then gave us an hour or so long tour of downtown on our way back to the hotel. It was such an enjoyable experience. Hagen was very knowledgeable and friendly! We would definitely book again!
This was an amazing experience. Chad was phenomenal. I booked this tour as a surprise for my wife and daughter as we are celebrating her sweet 16. Chad was super patient with my family during the training period. This experience encouraged my wife who was anxious about the tour. I am a big guy a little too heavy for the Segway. Still, Chad came up with a solution, an electric trike!!! This allowed me to participate and video the whole tour! We were caught in the rain and soaked but it was so fun. I would highly recommend!!!
Enjoyed the experience overall. It started to rain 1/2 thru and all of the water accumulated as a small flood in the front lower area. Of course no one can control the weather but has anyone thought to add holes/vents to drain the water out of the sides of the bus? I was also curious if there is a route closer to see the beach?
