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.

This is a great tour of downtown Charlotte in a relaxed trip via Segway. Our guide Rod did a super job giving us highlights of Charlotte history and fun facts about some of the citizens. He also had some photo stops built in to the tour. We really enjoyed it!
