Rod was our Segway tour guide in Charlotte. The initial training and practice was excellent. The Segway was so much fun that my husband and I and teenage granddaughter wanted the tour to go on and on. Rod gave us wonderful historic information about the city as we joyfully zipped around observing fabulous historic treasures that we would never have observed on our own. We came to love the city as he does.

I highly recommend this experience for all who really want to learn about a city while having fun, fun, fun! We will look for Segway wherever we go. Thanks, Rod

My son and I decided to do a last minute Segway tour of Charlotte. Even though, it was late in the evening, Diana responded via email immediately to say that they could accommodate us the following morning at 11am. Rod, our guide and Terry (our trainer) taught us everything we needed to get started. We both felt very safe, despite the fact that we've never ridden on a Segway before. Rod provided a really nice history of the 4 Uptown neighborhoods and also showed us some current apartments occupied by local celebs. We'd definitely do another one of the tours again, when in Charlotte.

Segway Training:
Our Segway trainer was Rod. Rod had strong communication skills and provided good instructions. He emphasized safe riding techniques that kept everyone free from injury.

Rod was patient with learners… gave timely and considerate attention to those who needed additional instructions on maneuvering the Segway. Great interpersonal skills and had a warm welcoming voice that’s perfect for radio.

Rod genuinely cares about tourists experiences in the city of Charlotte. He went out of his way to let us know that our hometown team was playing a game in the city while we were there.

Segway Tour:
Our tour guide was David. A cool historian who dropped knowledge with ease and accuracy.

David shared many interesting facts… like Queen Charlotte was a direct descended from Margarita de Castro y Sousa, a Black branch of the Portuguese royal house. We had no idea that the Queen of Charlotte, North Carolina had African ancestry… and she had 15 children with King George.

Also we really appreciated David’s willingness to capture shots of our family when we stopped in specific areas. He earned an extra tip for that!

David was well informed, enthusiastic and engaging. David is also an artist. Check out the attached pic of his artwork.

Tip #1. Arrive 45 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time for training if you want your tour to start on time.

Tip #2. Listen to instructions, pay attention and gain understanding. Handling the Segway is simply small nuances in the slight shifting of your body weight. If I did it… you can do it!

Tip #3 for Rod & David: Get the Cash App or Apple Pay so tourists who don’t travel with cash can leave a respectable tip for the good customer experience you provide.

Our Segway Tour was an overall great experience… we enjoyed every moment of the 1.5 hour tour through the fourth ward! Rod & David gave our family a memorable event we’ll never forget. They both were simply awesome and if you’re fortunate enough to get Rod & David you definitely won’t be disappointed.

This was one of our favorite experiences of our trip. Rod was an incredible tour guide who genuinely loves Charlotte and his excitement for the city was contagious. We learned so much and had the best time. Would highly recommend this tour (especially at the beginning of your trip so you can come back to all of the interesting spots).

We had an absolute blast taking this Segway tour as a family. It was just the five of us with our amazing tour guide Rod and we all said this tour was better than expected. A great thing to do with visitors and for people (like us) relocating to this city to help Charlotte feel like home! Know that you'll need to arrive 45min before your tour for a briefing and learn how to ride, but we would definitely recommend the 9am tour to beat the heat and pedestrians!

This was a great way to tour a city! The segways were relatively easy to operate and allowed us to cover considerable ground.

I had always wanted to do a segway tour and decided to do so while visiting Charlotte, NC for the first time. Our guide, Paul, was professional, patient, courteous, and personable. He was extremely patient with the group as he instructed each of us on how to ride the segways; he was knowledgeable about the city; he stopped several times and took photos of us at points of interest; and willingly answered our questions. And I appreciated that he took great care to ensure we safely navigated downtown during a particularly busy day!

Also, the company did an excellent job managing expectations by forwarding detailed information about parking and logistics prior to our arrival. I really enjoyed the experience and, therefore, highly recommend it.

Brean was our tour guide. He was absolutely amazing! His love for Charlotte is apparent and results in an enthusiastic informative tour. After sharing a safety video with us he patiently showed my partner how to mount and ride the Segway in under 10 minutes. It was his first time and he felt comfortable and safe. The tour showed us the 4 wards of Charleston. history of the founders, Charlotte’s endeavors in the Arts including sculptures, theater halls, and the creation of ‘Live, work, play spaces’. What I loved about the tour was seeing the commercial spaces integrated into the area without visually detracting from the city. Charlotte maintains all the benefits of a large city including multiple stadiums easily accessible from downtown, but it still feels warm and inviting. Brean was also sure to point out great eateries and museums. We ate lunch at Optimist Hall on his recommendation and it was perfect. Any visit to Charlotte would not be complete without a Segway ride and I recommend you ask for Brean. I will ask for him the next time I visit.

Rod was our tour guide and he was great. He is a long time resident of Charlotte and is very in tune with the vibe of the city. He gave us great tidbits of the history of the city and other interesting information. Rod was very attentive to our safety while riding our Segways. The riding was incredibly fun for us. it was the first time for many of us, but we picked it up right away. Not hard to learn at all. The distance we covered would have been a chore had it been walking tour. We were able to see historic neighborhoods, get some great restaurant reviews and took photos at the "best kept secret" in historical paintings of Charlotte ever. Overall the Segway tour was a great way to tour the city since it's effortless and we covered a great deal of ground. Rod was a great tour guide who was engaging and friendly. Tours go on rain or shine unless there's a ton of snow on the ground. We lucked out with great weather and temperature!

This tour was a great way to see Charlotte. Rod our guide took us to some great landmarks and was really knowledgeable about all the history of the city and had some great stories to tell which were both fun and interesting. Also shared plenty of recommendations about the local cuisine which was helpful.

This was our first time doing a segway tour. Initially, we booked it and received an introduction text from Carol. She answered any and all of my questions and sent us such thorough texts explaining how we should proceed. We then arrived for our scheduled tour and completed the orientation with carol. She was lovely and the intro was thorough. She then took us outside for a “hands on” introduction. She was patient and kind and allowed us time to reach a comfort level. We were then introduced to our tour guide Rod. He was so patient, thorough and knowledgeable . He showed us around the city, gave us such interesting accounts of history and interjected personal stories to truly make for a memorable day! I can not speak highly enough about the whole experience. It was amazing! Thank you carol and rod for a memorable day!
