You can believe all the great reviews you read about this tour. Yes, the Segway is a little strange at first but in no time we were comfortable and maneuvering quite well. I am not a risk-taker and was quite nervous about traffic (yes, some of the ride is on the street!) and pedestrians. No need to worry, though. After... More

I have lived in Asheville for 25 years and decided to take a tour with another Ashevillian. What a surprise! After a quick lesson on seguay operation basics our guide Wes led us through the downtown area, Montford and the Riverside Cemetery. Wes was funny, a great story teller and really knew his stuff. I learned new things about this... More

My husband, our adult son and myself decided to take the tour. None of us had ever been on a Segway tour. My husband and son got it right away I needed a little remedial help. Wes was great ...very patient and encouraging... but did not pressure. I was a little leary about riding downtown but Wes was VERY accommodating... More

We had so much fun! My husband was wanting to ride a segway so bad and I found this one online. The owner/tour guide, Wes, was extremely nice and patient. This is the best way to tour downtown and have fun at the same time.

Our family of four adults took the tour the day after Thanksgiving! I reluctantly joined in , because I am uncoordinated and basically a chicken. So, having said that I can tell you all of those concerns were set aside very quickly. Wes had me up and going confidently in a matter of minutes. The Segways feel very comfortable and... More

We booked this tour at the last minute & Wes was so easy to get in touch with & flexible. The tour before ours rescheduled, so we moved up. The group size is small, so only our family of 4, which is also nice. 2 of us have segwayed before, but never in the city. It was so fun, I... More

On our Fall Break from our Husband's - 4 of us took the Segway tour with Wes!!! He had lots of patience with us and made the tour lots of fun while also being safe! Our group had one dare-devil - one very cautious - and two that were just so relaxed!! Wes managed to make the tour great for... More

Wes was awesome!! He tailored the tour to our requests. He was very enthusiastic despite the cold weather. Be sure to ask him about the local music scene... :) We had great time - segways are very cool to ride!!

This was actually the highlight of our trip (in my opinion). I called Was to book at the last minute. He was very accomodating and helpful. He told me that he had made other plans since no one had booked for that moring, but he agreed to meet us at the visitors center if we were interested. We met Wes... More

My husband and I fell in love with Segways during our honeymoon. Now, whenever we go on vacation, we try to find a Segway Tour in the city we're visiting. Thus far, the Moving Sidewalk tour with Wes has been our favorite. We had perfect weather, a beautiful ride around the city and learned so many interesting facts about Asheville.... More
