“A must do when visiting the Biltmore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

We took the "off-road" segway tour. Much of the tour follows trails that are easily managed even for first time Segway users. You do get to go "off the beaten path" for some of the tour. It was fun to climb large hills and speed across fields. The guide was wonderful and since we had used segways before, he took the governor off right away. The views were amazing and the guide stopped us in several places to tell us interesting facts, take pictures, and just enjoy the views.
If you're looking for something more than just walking through the estate all day, I highly recommend the Segway tour.
There is a small pack attached to the segway to keep your camera, sunscreen, ect as you go. This was very convenient.

“Looked Like A Lot of Fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

We didn't do this, but saw a tour in action while we were driving around. The guide stopped several times to show them various things. People on the tour were of all ages - even senior citizens. It looked like a lot of fun. Wish we could have made the time to try this.

“Segway tours at Biltmore estates”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

The tour takes 1 1/2 hours..Its for people ages 13 and older and between 100 and 250 pounds..They teach you how to ride them and they take you on group tours on the estates of the Biltmore. I'm 62 and I was nervous but it was easy and fun..I can't wait to do it again.

“What a fun and pleasant way to explore the grounds of Biltmore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

This tour is a really fun and pleasant way to explore the grounds of Biltmore Estate.
The tour leaves from the outdoor activities center, and is very well, professionally conducted.
First you take a "lesson" on how to ride a Segway, hands on. Very informative, and a great way to get acquainted with the Segway.
Then you are off to tour the grounds, by following bike trails, and viewing the river, and the lakes surrounding the Biltmore Estate. A very pleasant, and well conducted tour. Very safe, and at a point, the guide releases the "speed" governor, and you have the chance to experience the Segway at its "maximum" speed of about 10 mph.
Kinney, the guide, was very informative, and very pleasant.
A great "glide" through the grounds.
After the ride, a lunch at the Bistro is also not bad at all.
Enjoy!!
