Charlotte Segway Tour

Charlotte Segway Tour

Meet your guide in downtown Charlotte for a thorough overview of how to operate the Segway. Once your group is comfortable with the Segway controls, you'll make your way through the lively Uptown district. There are plenty of opportunities for photos on this informative tour -- best to pull out that camera only when your Segway has come to rest!

Option 1: 1.5-hour Segway tour
Start your tour by making your way to the Levine Avenue of the Arts to stop at the Bechtler Museum, a relatively new attraction in Charlotte that showcases the Bechtler family’s impressive collection of modern art. Admire the imposing 17-foot (5-meter) outdoor sculpture “The Firebird," covered in shimmering mosaic tiles.

On the other side of this avenue is the Mint Museum, the oldest art museum in Charlotte, and the Gantt Center for African-American Arts and Culture, home to exhibitions and performances. Glide into The Green, an urban park lined with sculptures that celebrate great literature. Then make your way over to the center of Charlotte at Trade and Tryon streets. Your tour ends with a visit to the Fourth Ward, a pretty area known for its historic Victorian homes.

Option 2: 2-hour Segway tour
If you'd like to cover a bit more ground by Segway, opt for a longer tour where you'll hit all of the sights above, as well as the Old Settlers’ Cemetery dating back to 1776. Your guide will share the names of some of the prominent citizens who have been laid to rest at this historic burial site, as well as at your next stop, the Elmwood/Pinewood Cemetery. Return to modern times with a visit to the Carolina Panthers' football stadium.

When I first stepped on the Segway machine, it was scary -- like a first time on a skateboard or downhill skis. However, the instructors were very helpful and after a few minutes of practice it started to feel natural. 2 people in my group chickened out. They should have stuck with it because this tour was awesome. Not just the interesting insight from my most awesome tour guide Tremaine, but also the fun of riding the Segway around town.

We had an awesome time on the Segways in Charlotte!! We have done Segway tours in the past in different cities and find they are a really fun way to learn about a new place. Our guide was Ashby and he was so very knowledgeable and had really wonderful antidotes about the history and culture of Charlotte. We highly recommend the Segway tours and also our wonderful guide Ashby. You will have a fantastic time and look forward to the next time! This is also a wonderful activity when entertaining friends and family who are visiting.

The location of the office was a little tricky to find, but once we got there everything was great. Our guides James and Josh were the best! Josh did great making sure we felt comfortable on the Segway and James was probably the most entertaining and knowledgeable tour guide I have experienced. We will absolutely take another tour with them!!!

New to segway, but the professional team had the family up and running speedily. The tour was excellent, good balance of fun on the segways and history of Charlotte, highly recommended, felt safe, had fun and informed. Tremain made this very hot day as comfortable as possible, keeping to the shade wherever possible and helping the less confident memeners of the party. His enthusiasm for Charlotte was infectious.
