      Had a great time. Took about 20 minutes to get the hang of the Segway's, after that it was off for fun. You get better and better as you go and after a while really enjoying zipping around.

      Loved how Walter tailored the tour to our interests
      Arrived at Greenville Glides and warmly welcomed by Walter. He essentially is a "one man show". We had a safety movie and then instructions on the segways. Walter was very good to be sure all three of us were comfortable with our abilities on the segways before leaving. The tour great! Walter focused on our requested interests in Greenville and was very informative. We had no idea that there was this much to see and do. A BIG SHOUT OUT TO WALTER!! Thank you for a fun day!

      So fun!
      I made this plan for my husband and I and it was so much fun! Walter taught us about the history, ghost stories, and art that the town of Greenville had to offer. The segways were easy to use once Walter taught us. I loved it and enjoyed the sights of Greenville! So fun.

      Love this tour. It was our fourth time to do the Segway tour. This time Walter took us on a different tour and we really enjoyed it. If you haven’t done the tour, we highly recommend it. So informative and enjoyable.

      Gliding Around Greenville
      Had a blast exploring Greenville on Segway. Such a good way to see the City, can go farther and see so much more than if exploring on foot. Our guide provided excellent training on how to ride and maneuver the Segway. He was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic in discussions about Greenville having grown up there. He gave us options of places to explore and history to hear about. Would wholeheartedly recommend this adventure!

      So Much Fun!!
      Our guide, Walter, was wonderful. He took time to thoroughly explain how to use the Segway safely and supervised while we practiced and as we toured Greenville. Walter asked what we'd like to focus on during our time and did a fantastic job meeting our request. He is a wealth of information. This is a 'must do' activity if you're visiting the area or even if you live here. We saw a lot and learned a lot. It was a great time!

      Great way to see the city!
      My 72 years young dad loved the ability to join us on the tour! We learned about some city history, saw parks and learned about area restaurants. Walter was a gracious and knowledgeable guide. Hard to find location though, so be on the lookout.

      Fun and informative
      Walter is an excellent guide. He made sure we were comfortable on the Segway before starting out. He is very knowledgeable of the area and it's history, and is eager to to share that knowledge. If you want to have fun scooting around town and parks on a Segway, while learning about the area, this tour is for you. I highly recommend this tour, especially if you can get Walter to be your guide.

    Walter was amazing (yet again!). Walter is such a good instructor ensuring everyone is comfortable before we start the tour. Then he listens to what his audience wants. I feel like he always goes “above and beyond” to ensure everyone is safe and has a great experience. My sister and I picked a beautiful day for our tour. We can’t wait to do another one soon with our other sister!

    Our guide was great. At the outset he asked us what we wanted to see and where we wanted to spend most of our time. He was attentive to our needs for rest stops, took pictures of us, and was very knowledgeable of the city, its sites, attractions, and restaurants. We've taken half a dozen Segway tours and Greenville Glides is best by far.

    This was a great activity, and we highly recommend it to all visitors who are interested in exploring the city. The Segways are really fun to ride and easy to manipulate. Walter, our guide, was great. We learned a lot about the city and saw some beautiful areas.

    Doing a Segway Tour of Greenville with Greenville Glides was one of our favorite vacation activities of all time. On a sunny January day, with temperatures in the low 60s, we trained on the Segways with our guide, Walter, then rode them all over downtown Greenville for 90 minutes. Walter showed us historical sites, restaurants, art, the beautiful Reedy River Falls Park, the Swamp Rabbit Trail, Unity Park and more. We learned how to control the Segways easily and rode confidently. Thanks Walter!

    Walter did a great job teaching/training us in how to use the segways. He was thorough and gave great safety tips. He asked what we wanted from our tour and designed the tour around that. He gave us great historical information and pointed out interesting restaurants and other parts of the city.

    This was by far the best idea to get to know a little bit about what Greenville has to offer. Our last visit was in 2007. The downtown area has been revitalized and let me tell you, they did it right!
    Walter, our guide, did a great job telling us about the city’s history and pointed out areas of interest as well as the great restaurants in the downtown area.
    We will be back to take the haunted ghost tour next time we visit!

    What a perfect adventure and a great way to see parts of Greenville that we didn’t know about! Walter was an excellent guide and very patient and friendly with his customers. He has so much knowledge about the city’s history and we thoroughly enjoyed listening to his stories. If you’re worried about getting on a Segway, Walter has you covered with hands-on training and time to practice before moving out on the tour.

    My hubby and I went on my birthday, which was a weekday. We were the only ones on the 1 p.m. tour, so we got the full attention of Walter, our guide. The office leaves a little bit to be desired, but the training was thorough, and we didn't leave until Walter was sure we were capable of handling the Segways.

    After Walter asked us several questions about what was important to us, he then took us around Greenville, exploring our particular areas of interest. He was very thorough and knowledgeable.

    Our only issue was that at our ages (over 70), we had a bit of trouble standing in one place on the Segways for 90 minutes. Walter stopped whenever we asked, but my own knees were aching a bit afterwards.

    All in all, it was a great experience, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see Greenville in this manner.

    The excursion was so fun! Our trip guide was Walter and he was amazing. He shared so much information about the art in downtown Greenville, the city’s history, and the restaurants we should try while we were there. He was very attentive to our needs and very professional while also being very personable. I would recommend Walter and this excursion to everyone!

    Walter was an awesome guide for lots of reasons. First he’s really accommodating to the specific needs of your group. We had 3 teenagers who weren’t as into the history of Greenville as they were into just riding the Segways. Me and my wife were interested in the history and restaurant recommendations. Walter customized our tour to make everyone happy. Also, he made sure that we were all comfortable/safe before riding off on the hills of the park
