We had a briefing on how to drive our Segways safely, which was done very thoroughly but light touch. My tour was led by Mimi who kept in touch with the group via headsets. Learned a lot about the history and architecture of Raleigh, and about managing a frisky Segway.

I was a newbie I had never been on a Segway before. They took the time to teach me and made sure I was completely comfortable. The tour was informative and fun!! This was definitely one of the most fun things to do 😎

So much fun! Triangle Glides has great guides (thanks Baxter!) and they really provide a fun time. They were very good at teaching us how to safely ride a Segway and enjoy our tour. We learned a lot about Raleigh history on the City Center Tour. Triangle Glides provides headsets that had excellent sound quality so we didn't miss a... More

Triangle glides has perfected the Segway tour. Great Segway's, quality headsets that work well and a fun, informative and very interesting History of the city! Plus- a reasonable price for a great tour! Do something fun and take this tour- they should be the #1 attraction in Raleigh.

Great people at the triangle glides. If you're a first timer, they take time to make you comfortable on a segway. Not much interesting historic information to provide in Raleigh downtown. But a great experience overall.

A dear old friend and I met in Raleigh to catch up and celebrate turning 65. We wanted to do something "wild & crazy" like we used to! At 65 riding a segway seemed daunting enough. Well, we did just fine and had a blast! Great instruction and a beautiful early November day in the city made this a sweet... More

Five seniors and one of our daughters took the Historic Oakwood tour early in October. None of us had ever been near a Segway previously. Our two fabulous guides (Trevor and Michael) gave us excellent, one-on-one instruction, so before long, we were all comfortable and confident tooling around town! It was really fun and interesting and worth every penny. I... More

I really enjoyed effortlessly gliding all over the city with another family and the excellent team of Mimi and Michael, seeing both the historic sites, and the interesting sights! Triangle Glides has a new beautiful, unique storefront inside the City Market area... and antique pictures all over the walls showing what Raleigh looked like 100 years ago. Be sure that... More
