Full description
Charlotte has interesting sights and attractions befitting its status as one of the 20 largest U.S. cities, but you might not know it. Our 1.5-hour tour will get you started. We give you 15-20 minutes of practice and orientation before heading out on our adventure. The southern part of the city hosts new museums and cultural spaces, so it’s a good place to open your eyes to current development. But Charlotte was already well established during the Revolutionary War, when residents drove out British General Cornwallis. The best place to learn about its history is in the center of town, where we will ride through the Fourth Ward neighborhood. It has Charlotte's oldest homes and cemetery. Of course you also get to see our high-rises and skyscrapers up close, as well as numerous outdoor fountains and public works of art.

Paul was a wonderful tour guide who was knowledgeable and patient with all our questions. This is our second time using this company and we plan on utilizing again in the future whenever we have guests. It’s such a wonderful interactive way to see downtown Charlotte. If you can request Paul, you’ll be in great hands!!

Awesome experience. Way to get to know uptown Charlotte for first time visitors. Segway is so much fun and easy to ride even for first timers like us. Our tour guide James is the best. He's such a cool guy and allowed us to stop for photo shoot when we wanted. Check in was easy. Overall a great experience.

The Segway tour was so much fun! We learned so much about Charlotte, NC that we wouldn't have known if we didn't take this tour around town. Riding the Segway was easy and fun! Anyone can do it! Our tour guide Rod was the best! He was very patient and very knowledgeable about the town. I highly recommend this Segway tour!
