The tour was so much fun! Richard was super nice and helpful, and also really knowledgeable. The segways were easy to use and it only took a few minutes to get the hang of riding them. 10/10 would recommend

Awesome tour. The Segway is fun to do, it was our first time. Our tour guide Richard was great. My wife and I love to walk but this was a fun change with narration. Highly recommended alternative way to see the Riverwalk.

Lived in Wilmington for 30 years and had never done anything like this. Friends from out of town suggested we all try it and loved it! Learned a lot about my hometown while enjoying a beautiful Carolina afternoon!
