Overview
This Charlotte Segway excursion lets you see more in less time than if you were to take a walking tour. Zoom through the area to see Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, the Mint Museum, and Gantt Center. Plus, you can choose to extend your tour to see even more sights for just a few extra bucks.
Highlights
  • Cover more ground in Charlotte's Uptown neighborhood during this Segway tour 
  • A how-to-ride overview lets you feel confident before you steer a Segway
  • Choose from two tour durations, depending on your preferences 
  • See Charlotte’s popular sights with a guide who tells you fun facts as you ride 
What to Expect
This Charlotte Segway tour meets inside the Overstreet Mall. Arrive about 30 minutes before your tour time. Once you get set up with a helmet and a Segway, listen to a short overview of how to safely drive your Segway. Out on the streets, follow your guide around the Uptown neighborhood. Catch sight of popular attractions, such as Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, the Mint Museum, and Gantt Center. If you’ve chosen to extend your tour, additional sights, such as the stadium home of the Carolina Panthers and two cemeteries will be seen, too. Your Segway tour in Charlotte ends back at the original meeting spot.
