Rod was the goat (greatest of all time). Had so much fun and the segways were easy to learn and ride - didn’t fall off once! Rod was the best tour guide - fun and knowledgeable! Top tier job!!

Fantastic time! We were so impressed with this company and our awesome guide, Rod! From our initial reservation, the communication was stellar! They emailed and texted a few times to ensure we had all of the information we needed - including detailed information on how to get to the meeting location and on parking availability, pricing and locations. Three of our party of four had never been on a segway. The safety video they showed, thorough demonstration, and guided training was spot on. These three things combined made the newbies much more comfortable in getting started. Our guide, Rod, was amazing! He was patient, so personable, and shared great information and stories with us all along the route. The route was the perfect combination of neat residential areas, history, landmarks, etc. With these kinds of tours, you don't always get a good balance of "activity" (segway riding) and information. Not the case here. We only had one day in Charlotte and we can't think of a more perfect to have spent it! Loved every minute of it. One of the highlights of our whole trip for sure! Thank you Rod and Carol!

This is one of the most fun experiences. I’ve done in a very long time! Working in uptown Charlotte since 1998, I frequently walked by Charlotte NC tours in the Overstreet mall and have wanted to take a Segway tour for ages opportunity, finally presented itself when our group of friends decided to stay uptown to celebrate my 50th birthday. Rod was our tour guide on a beautiful sunny Saturday morning and he was fabulous from the start. He took plenty of time to ensure we were well trained with the equipment and what to expect, which is important to me since a previous scooter incident didn’t go so well, haha! Spent the next 90 minutes, whirling us all over uptown, showing us the sites. I was particularly impressed with his knowledge and all the information he had to share, particularly because we’ve lived here so long now, and thought we knew it all, well spoken, articulated, and made the trip immensely enjoyable, I look forward to participating in the activity again and I’m especially looking forward to Both the ghost tour and the holiday tour he described to us. We highly recommend Charlotte NC segway tours- ask for Rod! Scott & Andi

I highly recommend this tour. I learned a lot about Charlotte history. It only took a few minutes to get used to the Segway and away we went! Our guide Isaiah was informative and engaging. Now I want to take a Segway tour in every city I visit!

Had a fun time with our tour guide Isaiah. He made sure everyone in our group was comfortable with riding the segways. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Charlotte and loved his theatrics while he was telling the stories. Received several communications prior to our tour about directions, time and other reminders. I would highly recommend Charlotte NC Tours.

Had a fantastic Segway tour of Charlotte! The experience was great from beginning to end! Carol, the business owner, was friendly, engaging, and provided a wealth of information that facilitated getting to the tour location, parking, etc. She then provided us with an overview of how to ride safely and what the tour would entail. From there, she and Isaiah, our tour guide, provided us with training on how to ride the Segway. They made us feel confident and comfortable! The tour itself was excellent! Isaiah led us safely through the city. He has a wealth of knowledge and provided us with a great deal of information about Charlotte's history and its evolution over time to the great city it has become! And the fun Segway ride was an absolute bonus! Thank you, Carol and Isaiah, for a wonderful experience! You made my first trip to uptown Charlotte an unforgettable one!

We had a fantastic time with Rod who put our minds at ease despite us having never been on a Segway. He couldn’t have been a better tour guide too with great knowledge of the area. He’s lived in beautiful Charlotte for 45 years and so also knew a lot of local residents. A few restaurant recommendations included too. Only downside was that a couple on the tour from the US were late to arrive despite a clear start time. Rod dealt with it fantastically but there is no reason to be late especially when we’d come from the UK and managed it!

Segway tours are my favorite! But this one was particularly good. We had Rod for a tour guide. He was so patient and experienced at giving us the best tour ever. We even had somebody on the tour that wasn't comfortable on a Segway, he was able to put one hand on her unit and steer her as she went with us the whole way.
