“Segway Historic Oakwood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

Was lucky to see Groupon for Segway, a tour I had not previously considered. I am so.glad I went. The just in time training was just the right amount to feel comfortable. The tour guide gave lots of encouragement and advice along the way and the information about Historic Oakwood was quite interesting. Overall a great tour!

“Son's 16th Bday gift”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

Myself, husband, son & one of his friends all went on a beautiful Sunday afternoon for the downtown Raleigh tour. It was the first time on Segways for all of us. The operators of Triangle Glides made sure that everybody was comfortable with how to handle the machines before heading out. The experience was awesome and we were all riding like pros in no time. Of course, my husband now wants one! Informative information provided at all times and there was never a dull moment. Before we knew it, the tour was over. We will likely be back for another one.

“fun first segway experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

My family was visiting prospective colleges in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area and wanted something to entertain us for a while on a lazy Sunday. This trip was especially fun!! Our guide Jeff was very knowledgeable and his coworker Evan helped us to make all the cross overs safely. We didn't want it to end. It was wonderful getting to learn how to ride on a segway and the weather was perfect too!!

“A fun way to celebrate special events!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

Two years ago my husband and I celebrated our anniversary on a segway tour and had a Great time! This year a friend and I celebrated her Birthday on a segway tour. She was reluctant at first and unsure of how she would balance herself after knee surgery just a few years ago - but she had a wonderful time. Bruce and Jeff took the time to train us so that we felt very comfortable riding the segways. Their tour was very informative and even though I have lived in Raleigh for over 20 years, I learned so much about Raleigh's history and had a great time too! I just booked a tour for my whole family to enjoy - my teenage kids are going to love it!
