I took the 1hr 45min tour with my wife. We'd never ridden segways before but our tour guide was a great instructor. He made our tour one of our favorite Wilmington experiences. We learned so much history about the town; movies shot here, famous residents, and the history of all the historic homes. Truly a unique tour.

Is it hard to control? NO. Do I look stupid? NO. This is the coolest thing you'll ever do and you might as well have some nice scenery to admire and someone who can tell you about it as you "stroll" down the streets of Downtown Wilmington and the Riverwalk. This was our 2nd time on a segway so it... More

Richard was kind enough to take us on a tour last minute and we had an amazing time. He is very knowledgeable about the town and showed us some really cool things. The Segway are so much fun to do everyone needs to give them a try!!

My friend and I were looking for something to fill the time before we caught an evening flight at RDU and since we'd be passing through Wilmington, thought we'd try the Segway tour. We couldn't have been happier with our decision. Neither of us had ever been on a Segway but Richard's instructions had us up and going in about... More

Richard was awesome. Took my retired parents and my teenage sons out today. Grandparents did great! My mom will try to go back again. My father was apprehensive at first but really enjoyed it. Tour was cut short due to under the weather kids! Richard was kind enough to notice kids were overheated (bc of the weather not bc of... More

Had a great time touring downtown with Richard. My husband and I had never been on a Segway before, but we got the hang of it pretty quick and we were off! His knowledge of the area and the history was great. I would highly suggest calling Richard and booking a Cape Fear Segway Tours with him.

Richard gave an excellent tour and was a patient teacher as this was the first experience our family had on segways. He made us feel comfortable and made sure we were doing alright throughout the tour. He even took a family photo and video with our Go-Pro, which was a nice touch. He played to all of our interests and... More

Richard scheduled a group of 4 on a short notice. He provided us with some Segway instructions, everyone caught on quickly and off we went thru downtown, the historic area and river walk. He was very knowledgeable about Wilmington and probably one of the coolest ways to see it. Everyone should do this.

Richard was friendly, knowledgable, and truly wanted us to have a great experience on our Segways while we learned about the waterfront and downtown Wilmington.

I went to Wilmington on July 4th weekend and even though the guide, Richard, had family in town, he still took us on our tour. I had never driven a segway before this tour, but Richard's instructions were easy and we had it in no time. The views were beautiful, the stories were interesting, and the segway itself was SO....
