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

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

The staff at Triangle Glides was very patient in teaching each of us to ride the Segway. Once we were trained, we embarked on the tour. They helped us navigate tricky areas so everybody had a safe ride. We were on the historic Oakwood tour, and learned about the architecture and history of the Oakwood neighborhood. We also visited the... More

Participated in this tour. It was a good group of 9. We all received enough training to feel totally comfortable on the Segways before heading out - no pressure, everyone was trained until they felt ready. Everyone receives a helmet and an earpiece, and we were off through the streets of downtown Raleigh. Riding a Segway is, indeed, a fun... More

the worse staff... the worse customer services, I went with my family and they didn't let my parents make the tour because they didn't speak English, they were very impolite with my family and I can say they were racist in some point...

A really great time! No prior experience on segways is needed. Sufficient time is taken to be sure all are trained in operating one, and it's a surprisingly quick learning curve! The tour covers a lot of ground, thru the Oakwood residential neighborhood and thru the Oakwood cemetery. The guide was very knowledgeable and relayed stories dating back to the... More

This was so much fun, I enjoyed every minute of our 90 minute tour. We did the Raleighs Darkest Secrets Tour and it was chock-full of interesting and creepy facts.
