So much fun for our family

I must admit, it was harder than I thought it was going to be. I assumed it was a stationary vehicle UNTIL I moved...uh, uh, uh. You must maintain "balance" at all times... read more

I must admit, it was harder than I thought it was going to be. I assumed it was a stationary vehicle UNTIL I moved...uh, uh, uh. You must maintain "balance" at all times. Thankfully, the instructors are so patient and kind. They took extra time with me but it paid off. Within 10 minutes of starting on our journey I... More

In just a few minutes, Trevor had us mastered on the Segways. My daughter and I took the morning city tour because the afternoon tours were sold out. What a great way to see Raleigh, and Trevor was a fantastic tour guide.

Booked the historic Oakwood tour. We enjoyed our guide, Darrow, who was very knowledgeable and funny. Triangle guides did a great job of providing adequate practice before headed to the streets! Would definitely do it again!

The staff at Triangle Glides were wonderful from start to finish. They worked with me and my group of seven to get the desired tour and time slot we wanted. We selected the Raleigh's Darkest Secrets tour and it was so much fun! The staff gave us an adequate training session and we were all comfortable on our Segways when... More

We bought a groupon (ebates discount + groupon sale) for this tour and had a really nice time. We had never ridden segways before but it's really fun and easy to learn. We hadn't expected it to last as long as it did but the practice/learning phase added quite a bit of time. Your hands are exposed during the trip... More

This is a great way to spend a few hours in Raleigh. Our guide was very knowledgable and informative, and was very keen on safety. My adult son and I had a great time, and would highly recommend this company for both locals and out-of-towners.

On somewhat a lark I reserved two spots for a post-Christmas outing for my big sister (visiting from PA) and me. I was positive I'd enjoy this but a bit apprehensive that she would. Any fears were dashed immediately. The guide and team members made the participants feel at ease from the get-go. The requisite orientation session was concise and... More

Darrow was a fantastic guide. He made certain everyone in our party was comfortable on the segways and gave great safety instructions. Our tour was fun and informative. I loved that Darrow was born and raised in Raleigh and could share his experiences from the past compared to the present. He was so knowledgeable about the area and gave us... More

Triangle Glides is a class act. From the detailed starter lesson to the guided tour. Everything is done very professionally and the tour guides are fun and informative. This is our third trip with them and the we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
