Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide in downtown Charlotte for a thorough overview of how to operate the Segway. Once your group is comfortable with the Segway controls, you'll make your way through the lively Uptown district. There are plenty of opportunities for photos on this informative tour -- best to pull out that camera only when your Segway has come to rest!

Option 1: 1.5-hour Segway tour

Start your tour by making your way to the Levine Avenue of the Arts to stop at the Bechtler Museum, a relatively new attraction in Charlotte that showcases the Bechtler family’s impressive collection of modern art. Admire the imposing 17-foot (5-meter) outdoor sculpture “The Firebird," covered in shimmering mosaic tiles.

On the other side of this avenue is the Mint Museum, the oldest art museum in Charlotte, and the Gantt Center for African-American Arts and Culture, home to exhibitions and performances. Glide into The Green, an urban park lined with sculptures that celebrate great literature. Then make your way over to the center of Charlotte at Trade and Tryon streets. Your tour ends with a visit to the Fourth Ward, a pretty area known for its historic Victorian homes.

Option 2: 2-hour Segway tour

If you'd like to cover a bit more ground by Segway, opt for a longer tour where you'll hit all of the sights above, as well as the Old Settlers’ Cemetery dating back to 1776. Your guide will share the names of some of the prominent citizens who have been laid to rest at this historic burial site, as well as at your next stop, the Elmwood/Pinewood Cemetery. Return to modern times with a visit to the Carolina Panthers' football stadium.

I signed up for this tour and was a bit frightened as I’ve never been on a Segway but the training and the. Practice given made all the difference and myself and my son learned very quickly. Our tour guide Russell was amazing! He was patient, with a wealth of history information about uptown Charlotte. We LOVED it! Best way to see Charlotte and learn something as well!! Thank you for the wonderful experience!

My wife and I was visiting for our anniversary and decided to do something we had never experienced before. We signed up for the Historic Segway tour and it was amazing. Paul was amazing showing us how to properly use the Segway and made sure we were comfortable before starting the tour. Paul was very knowledgeable about the history of Charlotte and we learned a lot. We will go back with our daughter and son-in-law to take this tour again.

Paul was a great guide. I had not ridden these before and with the office staff and Paul’s insight, it didn’t take long to get up and going!
