Highlights

[This is a tour that ABSOLUTELY MUST START ON TIME!] Buzz through Charlotte’s hopping Uptown neighborhood on this Segway tour of North Carolina’s biggest city! Follow your local guide as you glide along the Levine Avenue of the Arts and check out the Mint Museum, the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, The Gantt Center and the historic Fourth Ward. Choose either a 1.5- or 2-hour ride – the longer ride includes two historic cemeteries and the Carolina Panthers football stadium. This is a GREAT, POPULAR tour of Uptown Charlotte, however we are VERY VERY rarely able to accommodate late guests. CRUCIAL INFO: PLEASE NOTE that if you are not able to park and arrive at our office at least 45 min. before your tour time for mandatory Segway training, you will likely miss your opportunity to go out on this tour! And availability to reschedule for the same day or for weekend/holiday tour times is VERY UNLIKELY. PROMPT ARRIVAL IS A MUST FOR THIS TOUR. THANK YOU!!!

This was my first time every riding a Segway and I got to say it was FUN. I had Lane as my guide and he made it very easy to learn and be aware of potential hazards as well as being very flexible on where we could stop for pictures. I would recommend this for anyone wanting to get good information about charlotte or just wanting to learn how to ride a Segway, ask for Lane.

On the day of our Segway tour, we received a text that gave us extremely detailed instructions on how to find Charlotte NC Segway tours. Very grateful for those instructions! Once at the meeting area, we met Lane, our tour guide. Lane was professional and personable. His knowledge of Uptown Charlotte, the 4 wards, history, along with his ability to teach us how to ride a Segway was amazing. In regard to his teaching, Lane was patient, encouraging and thorough. The tour itself was extremely interesting. We loved the area with Alexander Michael’s restaurant. The historical homes there were beautiful and the history of the “Old Red Light District” was interesting. We also loved seeing the Crown and Sceptre buildings! Lane made our tour fun, memorable and unique!

My wife and I booked our Segway tour on the last day of our getaway weekend. The weather was chilly and overcast but we had a wonderful time touring the city without walking. We had never been to Charlotte before and this was great way to see and learn about it. For whatever the reason my wife and I were the only ones taking the tour so we had a private experience with our tour guide Lane. He was only 19 but he was very knowledgeable and professional. His instructions for using the Segway were very helpful making us feel comfortable and confident to safely ride them. Great job Lane! We highly recommend Charlotte NC Tours if you’re interested in a fun experience.

You'll meet your guide in downtown Charlotte and get started with a safety overview for the Segway. Once you’re comfortable with the Segway’s controls, follow your guide through the lively Uptown district, with plenty of stops along the way to snap photos and to hear fun stories and facts about Charlotte's history.

Option 1: 1.5-hour Segway tour

Wheel down the Levine Ave of the Arts, named after local donors to the arts in Charlotte. On one side of the avenue you’ll see the Bechtler Museum, designed by a Swiss architect and opened in 2010 to show the Bechtler family’s collection of modern art. Check out Niki de Saint Phalle’s outdoor sculpture “The Firebird” – which is covered in mirror mosaic and stands more than 17 feet (5 meters) tall.

Across the street you’ll find the Mint Museum, the oldest art museum in Charlotte with one of the largest art collections in the Southeast, and the Gantt Center for African-American Arts and Culture, which presents exhibitions and performing arts. Then pop into The Green, a pocket park lined with sculptures that celebrate great literature.

Next you'll travel over to Trade and Tryon streets, a crossroads where two native American trails once intersected, which became the center of Charlotte. Then head into the historic Fourth Ward where your guide will lead you through streets lined with beautiful Victorian homes.

Landmarks include:

Levine Avenue of the Arts

Mint Museum

Bechtler Museum of Modern Art

The Gantt Center for African-American Arts and Culture

The Green

This option includes the sights in the shorter tour followed by a visit to the Old Settlers’ Cemetery, Charlotte’s original municipal cemetery which operated for a century starting in 1776. Listen to your guide’s tales of the prominent citizens that were buried here and at your next stop, the Elmwood/Pinewood Cemetery. Finally you'll return to modern times with a spin around the Panthers Stadium, where Carolina Panthers football fans cheer on their team.
