Wes in a perfect guide, careful, funny, informed, friendly and every attentive. Learning to ride was quick and there is plenty of time to practice. Then the tour of downtown is terrific for learning history and much much more. A very enjoyable 2 hours. Very safe with helmets. I'd do it again!

I've taken Segway tours in several cities - all larger than Asheville. Despite being a somewhat round middle aged woman, I just adore Segways, and those employed by this Asheville operator are the very best. New technology, smaller profile and ultra-responsive. And then there's the tour-guide, Wes. Enthusiastic yet laid back. Truly concerned about his guests' good time. Takes safety... More

It was just my wife and I on a recent Friday. Wes made over-sure we were comfortable and capable on the segways - they're really very easy, and this being our second time it was cute to see how worried he was. He's a great story teller, a local, and a nice person to be around. Segways are an awesome... More

What can be said about Wes that hasn't already been stated? His laidback demeanor and knowledge of our city just adds to the awesomeness of being on a Segway. Being deeply aware of our history having lived here for nearly 40 years, I still learned something and Wes was great just to converse with. If you live here like we... More

What a blast...I was a little worried about this tour never being on a Segway. If I can do it, so can anyone. Wes is one of the best tour guides I have ever seen. He is knowledgeable, great to talk to and makes sure everyone has a great time. This tour is a must when going to Asheville NC.... More

Everyone should take this tour. This was amazing. Wes, the tour guide, was knowledgable and fun. Will definitely do this again on our next trip.

First off, Wes was an awesome tour guide. It was only my fiance and me on the 5pm tour, so when we told Wes that we had already been in downtown exploring for a couple of days, he took us on a route through a beautiful historic neighborhood (Montford) and catered the trip through downtown to things we hadn't yet...

On our first day ever in Asheville, we started off with the segway tour led by the incomparable Wes. After our intro to segways, we started off, but only after Wes was assured we were 'good to go'. Along the way, Wes always made sure we were safe and had everything we needed. He is knowledgeable, friendly and just about... More

My husband and I ended up being the only ones booked for the tour on Saturday morning, and we loved having a "private tour"! Wes was a great guide - fun, friendly, and full of information. We visited historic neighborhoods, a beautiful greenway (not usually included in the tour, but with such a small group we could fit it in),... More
