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.

We have been to Asheville many times, but on Segways is a great way to get around. Wes is very patient as he demonstrates getting around on your Segway. It seems odd at first, but once you get going it is just plan fun. They limit the tour to four people which is ideal. We had two teenage girls with... More

Maximum of 4 people in each group. Very easy to get the hang of it. Wes is wonderful. It is never scary or dangerous. We have been to Asheville several times but never saw some of the things Wes showed us.

Having taken bike tours around the world I was excited to try a Segway (knowing how hilly Asheville is, I did not want to bike around). My husband I had an absolute BLAST!! I highly recommend this tour, you won't regret it! Wes, our guide, was so funny, laid back and a great instructor! The first step on the Segway... More

This was my fourth Segway tour in different cities and Wes in Asheville is the best. Wes grew up in the area and knows the history of the neighborhoods and buildings. Asheville allows Segway use as they were intended, on sidewalks and any streets that have up to 25mph speed limits. Wes takes you thru the neighborhoods, cemetery and sidewalks... More

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
