Wes, as others have said, is awesome. He's very personable, funny and just a cool guy. He seemed very knowledgeable about Asheville and a fun spin on events and history. The segway was waaay easier to adjust to and ride than I ever thought it would be. He dispelled all the typical beliefs in thirty seconds. We spent about twenty... More

Great fun and super easy to learn, even on the hills of Asheville. Wes was an awesome tour guide. Very cool experience, will absolutely do again!

It is just the right mix of history and fun. I work downtown and could not believe all that Asheville has to offer within two blocks of the place I go every day. I have watched them go by for two years and told myself I would do that every time. Don't miss it~ Do it! Thanks Wes... really enjoyed... More

The highlight of my birthday celebration weekend in Asheville was a Seqway tour around downtown with Wes. There were four of us. My wife and I had been on Segways before, so at the start Wes focussed on training the other two on our party who were first-timers. I think the first segment of the tour was my favorite -... More

First, I have been a teacher for many years, and I am totally blown away by the skill of Wes, who runs the Segway tour of Asheville. He was an incredible teacher who wisely limits groups to 4 people. After teaching us how to ride (which is pretty easy) he kept all of the group together and made sure we... More

I was rewarding my 14 years old Grandson for a great two weeks visiting with us as he attended Drama Camp at our local theater and decided to treat him to a Segway ride around Asheville. We met our guide , Wes, at the Visitor's Center in Asheville and after some brief training we were off into the neighborhoods of... More

Wes rolled into the visitor center on his Segway and greeted us with a broad smile. From past experience we knew we were in for a lot of fun. Two of our trio were return customers, the third was a lady just over 60 with no experience at all. The two veterans were ready to roll after a 5 minute... More

Can I give this more than 5 stars? The Segway tour was so much fun! We started with about a half hour of safety and learning how to operate the Segway, and then started the tour. Wes was a wonderful tour guide and was always right there if we had any problems operating the machine. The tour was personalized to... More

The Segway is a relaxing and different way to see Asheville. Wes is just so at ease in teaching and then touring with the Segway. He knows Asheville extremely well and is comfortable carrying on conversation on anything you would like. If you want something more exciting than sitting on a trolley as a way to see Asheville, this is... More

We had a great time on the Asheville Segway Tour. Wes was a great guide and a lot of fun. It is a fantastic deal for the money. You won't regret it at all.
