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

After such a fun trip with Wes last October I couldn't wait to ride with him again! He is such fun, easygoing and happy to find new things for me to see. We did an evening tour on a Saturday so got to miss the traffic of the weekdays. But we we're able to see folks out for the evening... More

The guide can make or break a tour. The segways are fun little machines, and this was my second tour on one. Wes went above and beyond to make sure everyone on our trip was comfortable, and he made continual checks with us to make sure we were holding up all right. As the tour progressed, it struck me that... More

Our company held a leadership retreat in Asheville. We we picked "Moving Sidewalk Tours" for our fun activity after a few days of hard work. Wes is a sincerely caring tour guide who wants you to have a great experience. The weather was fantastic and we covered miles and miles of the city. If you are interested in a unique... More

My husband and I had an awesome time on our segway tour. It was great that Wes oriented us to the segways in the parking lot and made sure we were completely comfortable before venturing out onto the road. Two hours is plenty of time to get your fun in. I would highly recommend this activity as a way to... More

I emailed and wes called me back. (not at 4 am but later) We made plans for the tour. He worked around and was able to... More

Wes is a marvelous ambassador for the city of Asheville. We took this tour on a chilly November morning and it was the highlight of our time in Asheville. Wes was patient with us learning how to use the machine, appropriately safety minded and very knowledgeable about the city. About a half hour of training and 2 hours of city... More

We planned the last tour of the day with life long friends. I was the only one who had been on a segway before, but by the time we left the visitor's center, everyone felt comfortable on the vehicles. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of downtown Asheville. Wes was a great guide with lots of history and stories about some... More

This tour was lots of fun and actually pretty informative, as well. My husband and I are in our 50's and had no trouble learning how to ride the Segways. Wes was patient, friendly, and very accommodating.

This was my 14th time on a Segway. Needless to say, I LOVE Segways and have a good idea what makes a good tour and tour guide. Let's just say that Wes is great. He knows Asheville and it's history, he is entertaining, he is flexible and he is a good read of his audience and able to tailor the... More
