From the booking process to the tour itself, Moving Sidewalk Tours proved to be a great operation. I loved that I was able to text my tour request to Wes and he got right back to me. We met him at the Visitor Center and had a blast from there! Wes was such a nice guy and fantastic guide-it helps... More

Great fun and interesting! You will see Asheville's Montford district and the downtown area. Learned about Asheville's history through seeing and hearing. Fantastic tour guide was knowledgeable, personable, fun and answered questions. This is a wonderful, safe way to view the city. Equipment was so much fun, we didn't want to get off!

Wes was a fabulous and attentive tour guide. He knows the city and its stories. It also appears he knows everyone in the city. Thanks for such a great time!

We escaped hurricane Matthew and headed for Asheville knowing nothing about the place other than it was much better to be there than on the east coast. We scrolled through Tripadvisor and this tour jumped out at us, we'd never been on segways and it looked like a fun way to spend a few hours in an unknown city. Wes... More

Wes was great! Took time to make sure we wouldn't wipe out on the segways before we left, then took us on a great tour of Asheville. Not just downtown, but the surrounding neighborhoods, and gave us a very good history lesson. Wes always had our safety in mind and took us everywhere. I definitely recommend going on this tour....

Wes was conscientious about our safety, comfort, and questions. This is a very good way to see the city close-up and individualized. Take this tour to get your bearings and learn the city then go back to spend time on those points of interest to you.

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
