Electric Glide Tours Awarded 2014 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence
Segway tour companies are not all created equal and one Tampa Bay company proves this.
After nearly two years in operation and more than a thousand tours, Electric Glide Tours, a.k.a. "EGT" knows what it takes to make a Segway tour company stand out. It all starts with the technology, but it doesn't end there.
The technical and corporate-mandated title for the two-wheeled/
After the training, guests are led in a single file line to a community park or common area in the vicinity so they can test their new skills and become more acclimated to the machine. After a few minutes, the machines are switched from training mode to riding mode. Kristy's husband Russell, co-owner and VP had this to say: "Training people properly is the most important aspect of our business. Improper training is why people might be apprehensive about taking a Segway tour, and partly if they've read anything negative about the alleged safety aspects of a Segway PT. We're not only trying to train people better, but we also hope to dispel the rumors often times associated with the Segway PT. Our feeling at EGT is that if everyone is appropriately trained and comfortable before we leave the training area, they will enjoy the tour much more because they are no longer worried about how to ride the Segway. Winning this award not only gives us a great deal of pride, but it is this kind of feedback from our tour guests that indicates we're doing things right and dispelling those myths and negative stereotypes."
