This was our first experience with a Segway and what a great experience it was. We were treated extremely well by everybody at Triangle Glides from the moment we were greeted at the shop to the time we stepped off our Segway at the end of the tour. The introduction and safety speech our tour leader, Darrow, did was just... More

A group of us went on this tour and had a great time. The guides really know some interesting history about the area. The instruction & training for the segway was outstanding. This was our 2nd tour with this company. Fun thing to do

My friend and I were "Segway virgins" (tour guide's words), as were most of the others on our tour. The staff took plenty of time to make sure we felt comfortable on the machines before we left the building, then we practiced more in the parking lot, then we were off on a 90 minute tour of downtown Raleigh. Darrow,... More

This trip was a lot of fun. The staff was friendly, courteous, and took extra time to make sure we were comfortable on the Segways before we started our tour. I highly recommend the Segway experience with Triangle Glides!!! :)

I found the guides to be very patient and encouraging in teaching us how to ride a Segway and very knowledgeable and interesting in telling us about the sights in downtown Raleigh.

This was different but a lot of fun. After excellent training by the staff, we were taken on a tour of the historic Oakwood district and Oakwood cemetery in Raleigh. Trevor and Josh worked well together to provide for our safety at the intersections, and Trevor has accumulated a lot of knowledge about both the district and the cemetery. I'm... More

I came into town on business during the last week of September 2014. I have been lucky enough to have experienced riding Segway's in almost every major city in America. I find the rides to all be relatively good but there are a few standouts and this is one of those. To be fair I'd like to get a couple... More

At 66, I was fulfilling a 6 year long desire to ride a segway. My husband and I wanted to take a trip to Raleigh (2 hours from home) to see the history and take in the culture of the town and area. I saw the Groupon and we realized this was the time to combine it all. Trevor and... More

My daughter and I took the "Raleigh's Darkest Secrets" tour and had a wonderful time! Todd was our tour guide on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. We were paired with two other groups to bring the tour group to 10. After a short training session in the lobby (very well done), we were off in a single-file line following Todd. I'd... More
