Segway tours originated among professional conversationalists who needed a mode of transportation smooth enough to accompany their effortless shifts from Shakespearean sonnets to asparagus soup. Transition yourself on a narrated journey with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a segway tour (up to a $65 value) from Moving Sidewalk Tours, based in the Asheville Visitor Information Center.

Moving Sidewalk tourists take a guided two- to three-hour meander through downtown Asheville, landing upon hot spots and historical landmarks atop the second-generation Segway i2. The tour commences with a 20–45 minute tutorial on steering and safety imparted by a genial Sherpa. Armed with tour-provided helmets and water bottles, embark on a look-see of locales, including Pack Square Park, the Grove Arcade, the Thomas Wolfe Memorial, and McCormick Field. Each outing is customizable, so groups can spend as much or as little time as they prefer at each site. Your segway will sense the direction you want to go as well as your ambivalence about cheating on your bicycle, assuring you of its ecologically affable status as it whisks you on a 4.5-mile excursion. Tours take place daily at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and partakers are encouraged to wear comfortable clothes and closed-toe shoes.


TripAdvisors give Moving Sidewalk Tours a perfect five-star average:

  • On a beautiful quite brisk morning we were trained in the basics and then had an incredible experience. The tour was informative and fun. If you have the chance we highly recommend the Moving Sidewalk Tour. – aandr240
  • We have taken four Segway tours before, and this is by far the best. – Ronbo4444

Moving Sidewalk Tours

Moving Sidewalk Tours' knowledgeable staff turns Asheville's streets into a mobile adventure as they take small groups of Segway riders on scenic tours. Before each departure, guides train each participant on how to operate, steer, and merge consciousness with their second-generation Segway i2. They then lead groups through downtown Asheville, coasting across some of the area's current hot spots as well as historic sites. Moving Sidewalk's staff keeps Segway riders safe and comfortable throughout journeys with helmets and complementary bottles of water. They can also sell customers commemorative T-shirts or a Segway machine to give to their car as a pet.
