“Just a whole lot of fun”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Wes, the owner, makes this Segway trip such fun. He's very good at teaching you how to ride the Segway and then off you go rolling through the streets of Asheville. I would have liked a little more history about the town itself, but we enjoyed he provided and he was really funny when we asked him about his worst customers ever. He's got a great sense of humor and calm demeanor that obviously makes him a master at handling just about anything. The tour is well paced as about halfway through, when your feet and legs are getting tired, he takes you to a nice little coffee shop for a break. I think the tour is a particularly good way to cover a lot of ground and get a good feel for Asheville downtown so you can then plan what you want to do next.

“Best up close view of downtown Asheville.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

Wes, our guide, gave us a great introduction to downtown Asheville. In addition to being an ideal way to tour in a city environment, the Segway personal transporter is lots of fun to ride. With the excellent instructions provided by Wes, we were very comfortable in taking to the streets of Asheville. The only down side to the tour was that it had to come to an end. Thanks, Wes.

“Such a great experience”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

We were a group of 4 - 2 moms (over 50) and 2 teenage boys. We were visiting my sister in Chimney Rock, NC and she had taken all her guests (20+ people) to enjoy this experience in the past.. Wes knew my sister by name when we walked in as she has been there so many times. Wes gave us a lot of training before we headed out. It was such a beautiful tour and Wes was extremely knowledgeable about the area, had a great sense of humor and made the day so wonderful for us all. We were talking about it 2 days later. I would recommend this to anybody!

“Do not miss the most unique view of Asheville, hosted by the town's most informed guide...funny too!”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Don't be intimidated by riding a segway...Wes is amazingly patient. Even with an uncoordinated Jersey girl. I learned so much about Asheville and its people. Love love love this tour!
