Great people at the triangle glides. If you're a first timer, they take time to make you comfortable on a segway. Not much interesting historic information to provide in Raleigh downtown. But a great experience overall.

A dear old friend and I met in Raleigh to catch up and celebrate turning 65. We wanted to do something "wild & crazy" like we used to! At 65 riding a segway seemed daunting enough. Well, we did just fine and had a blast! Great instruction and a beautiful early November day in the city made this a sweet... More

Five seniors and one of our daughters took the Historic Oakwood tour early in October. None of us had ever been near a Segway previously. Our two fabulous guides (Trevor and Michael) gave us excellent, one-on-one instruction, so before long, we were all comfortable and confident tooling around town! It was really fun and interesting and worth every penny. I... More

I really enjoyed effortlessly gliding all over the city with another family and the excellent team of Mimi and Michael, seeing both the historic sites, and the interesting sights! Triangle Glides has a new beautiful, unique storefront inside the City Market area... and antique pictures all over the walls showing what Raleigh looked like 100 years ago. Be sure that... More

Fortunate 2 person personal tour. My wife and I had a Great First time experience. Oakwood has a lot of history and our guide knows a bunch of it. Great and easy training session gets you going steady and fast. We will be back again!

The guides walk you through everything step by step and make sure you are comfortable on the Segway. I had such a fun time, and learned so much about Raleigh. I highly recommend it. As a first time glider, they really made me feel at ease. Our guide was Evan, and he was great!

A one and a half hour enjoyable experience with Triangle Glides on Segways touring Historic Raleigh and the Oakwood Cemetery. Fun, entertaining and educational, as we glided along on segways in a small group of eight with our guide leader and assistant. A great way to see and learn about Raleigh while powering along.

The staff took the time to teach you the do's & don'ts, on these funny looking machines. It turned out to be easier than it looked. We liked our guides and the tour. I will do this again, the next time I visit Raleigh. And would recommend it!

Our family of 5 (our kids are ages 17 - 25) had part of a day before we flew out of Raleigh so I set up this tour. We have been on 5 Segway tours throughout the world and liked them. This was no exception! The place was very clean and big enough to practice in the building before going... More
