Overview
Experience Florida's St Petersburg like never before on this entertaining 2-hour small-group guided Segway tour. Learn about the Sunshine City’s historic sites and Victorian homes on a loop around the city. See where the world’s first commercial flight took off from and hear about the history of the area’s former Tocobaga tribe, whose princess inspired the Disney story of Pocahontas. Guided Segway training, helmet and safety equipment, plus bottled water and an audio headset are included. This small-group tour is limited to seven people, ensuring personalized attention.
What to Expect
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 2-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.

Brilliant!!!

Having been recommended to this tour by my brother and niece earlier in the year, and assured by them I would be able to cope with the Segway even at my age (mid sixties) I was nervously looking forward to it. I needn’t have worried....More

We stumbled upon Doo's ad and called. She called me right back and gave us a personal tour. My husband and I never rode a segway before. After a training session, we were off! She had a great personality and was very interesting and informative....More

Excellent again!

This was our 6th tour with Doo's. We had 3 other couple join us this time. On a Segway with Doo doing the "Historic" tour was an excellent way to get an overview of the downtown St. Pete area.
