This tour was an absolute blast! Wess, our tour guide, was funny and knowledgeable and knows almost everyone in the city. It seemed like every time we turned a corner, there was someone he knew. He keeps the groups small, so you have the chance to ask any questions you wish. You get to see some of the magnificent homes... More

My friend and I went on this tour with Wes, our guide. We had a great time! Wes is extremely patient and funny as well as knowledgeable about anything relating to Asheville. This town is especially fun to Segway in because of the hills, shade trees, and pleasant weather. Give this a try if you want a fun and memorable... More

My husband and I celebrated our 16th anniversary in Asheville and decided to check out the Segway tour. This was such a wonderful, fun time! We got to explore and see Asheville in such a neat way and Wes was GREAT! I would highly recommend this and would do this again for sure!

Wonderful tour spent with owner Wes. He did a great job showing us the sights and helping us navigate the city. This is my second time learning how to segway. (was in another city)Wes by far helps even the novice feel comfortable and easily explains riding the segway. This is a must for anyone wanting to have fun, and see... More

Asheville is a pretty town, seeing it form a Segway puts you in close touch with a lot of it's "off the path" beauty. You receive excellent training before leaving and are happily fatigued after the two(+) hour tour.

So glad we decided to splurge and do this tour! It was worth the experience of seeing all of Montford and Downtown in a short period of time, as well as learning how fun and breezy the Segways ride! Wes was a great tour guide. Safety and comfort were his #1 concerns for us! He made sure we had the... More

Wes (the tour guide and co-owner) was fantastic! My family of four were the only ones on the tour when we went so it was super fun! We took the 10am slot on a Monday. We have ridden once before in Nashville and my children (21 and 23) both have "hoverboards," so we didn't require much training. We rode around... More
