The encyclopedic guides at Triangle Glides recount tales and anecdotes that testify to Raleigh’s colorful history on tours that usher groups across the city on self-balancing Segways. Before tour groups depart from City Market, pilots strap on provided helmets and soak up safety tips in an indoor training session that covers the basics of stopping, turning, gliding, and starring in spontaneous musical montages. The two-wheeled odyssey commences as guides comment on passing sights through a wireless audio pack that relays interesting factoids about the downtown Fayetteville Street revitalization, the state capitol restoration, and the governor’s mansion.

Segway gliders can choose their trip from the schedule or apply their Groupon toward a longer tour for an additional fee, payable at the time of reservation. Additional tours include Historic Oakwood ($10/person upgrade) and Capital City East ($25/person upgrade). Segway tours are popular, so be sure to book your date well in advance.

Triangle Glides

Since 2008, the mobile historians at Triangle Glides have been leading tours and eco adventures through the most exciting locations in Raleigh's past and present. They spin tales as groups take in the sights on foot, by Segway or on electric bike.

To explore the area's waters, the company's professional, experienced instructors help newbies master these watercraft during seasonal paddleboard lessons on nearby Lake Wheeler, where paddlers find calm waters surrounded by leafy forests.
