Took 5 family members touring downtown Raleigh. It was so much fun. The guide was great. He had a lot of information on the cities' past and present. The equipment was very reliable. The guides conducted a training session before we left. That set the groups fears of the Segway at ease. I will do another tour in the future.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable. We learned many new things. The segways are a fun way to tour downtown

The four of us taking the Oakwood tour are all long-time Raleigh residents but we learned so much history! The tour route is well-planned for maximum coverage of the points of interest. Mimi is a true professional and so friendly and knowledgeable, just a wonderful tour leader. We can't wait to book the Darkest Secrets tour. Even though we had... More

My friend and I were traveling through Raleigh and decided to get a tour of the city with a Segway tour. It was a beautiful day and the tour guide, Darrow, did an excellent job of showing us the different parts of the city. We just happened to be the only participants that particular morning in the tour and received... More

My son, visiting from the UK, my wife and I enjoyed our tour of downtown Raleigh. I learned a lot of interesting facts about the capital city that I didn't know, having lived here for 31 years. The tour company provides full training and is ultra careful during the tour and provides an interesting narration via a wireless earpiece. I... More

Great way to see the city and engage our college age kids. We have lived in the area over 25 years and were looking for a way to spend time with them doing something they would enjoy. Triangle Glides was the answer! We literally spent the hour riding our segways (which is what you want to do!) while learning lots... More

I have never been to Raleigh, NC. Only had a day to explore the sights. Looked up tours close to my hotel downtown. Never had been on a Segway before. What a great experience it was. I really appreciated the thorough instructions given before we even left the sight. The age groups ranged from 26-70 years old. Everyone looked like... More

What a fun way to see Downtown Raleigh. The instruction given at the beginning of the tour was very easy to understand and we were off on our Segways in no time. Many beautiful and interesting sights to see along the way and very informative commentary. If you are looking for a fun and different way to see Raleigh, I... More

I participated in the Triangle Glides Segway Discovery Tour with 8 "girlfriends" all of us in our 50s and 60s. Though a couple were a little anxious, the training was very good and put everyone at ease. The eldest of our group, age 66, was so proud of herself! The history taught on this tour is quite interesting, and the... More
