My wife and I (both in our 60's) took our first foray into site seeing on a Segway. The staff helped us learn how to be safe on the machines and after about 10 minutes of practicing within the safety of their office space, we headed out with our guide, Mimi. Excellent tour, and with the headset, we were able... More

Had a great time. The segway instruction was thorough and the team made it fun and easy. We will always remember the 45th. Great weather and very interesting.

Such a great tour! We had the best weather, and gives you a new view of the city! You get an intro on how to ride a Segway and then you're off! It's easy and fun and the guides are nice and friendly. Don't forget to tip them :) recommended 100%

We received this as a Gift and it was well done. Appears they take up to 8 people at a time. Great for families with children 14 yrs old and older or just adults. Very thorough training before site seeing. Had an awesome day to tour. Allow pictures on the tour as well. Great way to see things downtown.

Excellent staff! Todd and Mimi led our tour. We were thoroughly trained before starting out and gently coached as needed as we proceeded with the tour. (I was not particularly adept, but they were patient with me, too!) The sites were interesting; we had visited Raleigh many times to see family but we saw new things on this trip due... More

We had a briefing on how to drive our Segways safely, which was done very thoroughly but light touch. My tour was led by Mimi who kept in touch with the group via headsets. Learned a lot about the history and architecture of Raleigh, and about managing a frisky Segway.

I was a newbie I had never been on a Segway before. They took the time to teach me and made sure I was completely comfortable. The tour was informative and fun!! This was definitely one of the most fun things to do 😎
