Segway of Charleston Offers Guided Historic/Scenic Tours and Half and Full Day Rentals. One hour and two hour tours available at 9:30am, 12:30pm and 3:30pm Monday through Sunday. A Segway PT (Personal Transporter) is a self-balancing, two-wheeled vehicle that is a fun, easy, eco-friendly way to tour and travel Charleston. Segway of Charleston offers tours from its location on Coleman Boulevard. These tours highlight the rich history and inherent beauty of Charleston.The Patriots Point Tour glides along smooth sidewalks, nature trails, piers and grass. The tour includes scenic destinations such as USS Yorktown, Ravenel Bridge, Charleston Harbor, Downtown Battery and a two-mile nature path that leads to a lookout dock offering scenes of Fort Sumter and Charleston's skyline.The Old Village Tour, a one-hour excursion through seven stops, includes historic homes, churches and a Masonic lodge, as well as Revolutionary and Civil War landmarks. Riders will enjoy countless picturesque locations and vistas of the Charleston Harbor. The one-hour Pitt Street Bridge Tour presents tour-goers six charming stops and an abundance of unique sites. A brief history of the Old Village starts the tour before proceeding to Alhambra Hall, overlooking Charleston Harbor, and the breezes of Cove Inlet and Pitt Street Bridge. The final tour combines the Old Village and Pitt Street Bridge Tours,and is two hours in length. Riding on an electric vehicle is a quiet, fun, unique way to quickly cover a lot of ground and take in both the scenic and historic. Come enjoy the glide!!

I always try to get a Segway tour in when I visit a new city. This one was another smash hit!! LeGare (spelling) was wonderful. Very friendly and helpful to my grandmother who was doing the Segway for the first time! It’s a must-do!!
