Overview

A Segway tour of Charlotte is fun, safe and informative! Follow your knowledgeable local guide as you glide through the upbeat Uptown neighborhood. Sights on this tour include the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, the Mint Museum, and the Gantt Center.

  • 1.5- or 2-hour Segway tour of Charlotte
  • Ride by the museums in Uptown’s vibrant arts district
  • Visit historic highlights like Trade & Tryon (Independence Square) and the Fourth Ward
  • Check out The Green, a park with sculptures and whimsical signposts that honor great world literature
  • Learn about Charlotte's history at the Old Settlers’ and the Elmwood/Pinewood Cemeteries (if option selected)
  • See the home stadium of the Carolina Panthers NFL football team (if option selected)
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.

We were stuck in traffic and was late for our assigned time. The group we were supposed to be with had already left. They found us a different guide right away and we received a private tour. Thank you

I did this tour with my wife who has never been on a Segway before. The team was very patient as she learned to ride and get comfortable and confident. The tour guide was also very personable and gives a great tour with just enough information. Highly recommend!
