We absolutely loved every minute of our Segway adventure with Remi. He was very great with instructions and we felt at ease right away. The nature was beautiful and the speed was PERFECT! Such a super nice person/guide. Highly recommend this experience for your family!

Remi picked us up from the Dolphin Village prompt at 10 and drove us to Fort de Soto park. He then gave instruction and orientation to ensure health & safety. We were then well equipped to enjoy the tour. It was the best fun, Remi...More

I have done this ride four times now. It is like being a kid again riding that wagon down the hill. Remi does a good job of teaching you and informing you on some of the locale history and knowledge of the area.

Hi speak to Remi, he may come and collect you from your hotel or as the other user said you can meet him in the park. 5 dollars to enter. Remi is very helpful and flexible in terms of arranging.
