What a fantastic experience!! Bar none!! Wes is the best tour guide - informative, kind, fun, interesting, all around awesome guy. We had a blast on this tour with Wes and our two daughters, ages 14 and 17. Not the first time on a Segway and definitely not our last time. We will be back to ride the sidewalks of... More

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

We did this tour last summer and had such a great time that we took it our 14 year old son this summer for the experience. Wes is very safety conscious, patient and helpful. We enjoyed going through Asheville with Wes as our guide. He is so knowledgeable about the area.

Initially, my husband wasn't sure he would enjoy this experience, but throughout the tour, he kept thanking me for encouraging him to give it a try. And when it was all over, he said, "You know, Wes is a guy I would just love to hang out with!" Wes, our tour guide, provided us with a great two hours of... More

We had our second experience with Moving Sidewalk the other day. Our first was a couple of years ago. Wes is the best guide. Since we had already done the "downtown tour", he asked if we would like to go elsewhere this time and we took him up on it. Good choice! we avoided all the tourists (like us), all... More

My wife and I did this tour Sunday and it was GREAT! Wes gave us a few minutes of instruction since we had never been on a Segway before, and then took us around Asheville for 2+ hours. He knew the history of all the buildings and places, and balanced out information and humor throughout. Don't miss this tour!
