“The West Side Tour is fun”

Biltmore Estate Segway Tours
Ranked #30 of 61 Tours in Asheville
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 April 2017

We have done a couple of the Segway tours at Biltmore now and the West Side Tour is a lot of fun. It gets you across the river and onto the western side of the estate where you get a chance to see part of the old dairy, the vineyards and the shooting clays facility. Not many people get over the river, and the gravel roads are fun to ride on. It is a technically more demanding ride than some and loads of fun.

It was fun to try riding a Segway but the scenery we were able to view wasn't really worth the expense. Greg did a great job as our guide, but there wasn't that much to see as we did the Off-road tour. We did stop at a great view of the Biltmore House across a lake but we could have gotten there by car on our way out.

My husband and I did this Segway tour along with 4 other people. Our instructor, Brennen, was very thorough and encouraging as we all adjusted to using the Segway. After about 30 minutes of training, we were on our way off-road through some rugged terrain that was so easy for us on the Segway. We rode on pathways next to the French Broad River and got into some hilly, grassy areas where it was a lot easier than I expected to maneuver the Segway, and where we got to see the Biltmore Estate home from a view you wouldn't normally see.

We are already planning on doing the Advanced Segway tour, also offered at the Estate.

This was our families first Segway adventure and we all agreed it was probably our favorite thing we did while visiting Asheville and the surrounding area. We did the Off Road Segway tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. None of us had ever ridden a Segway but the instructor was great and everyone caught on real quickly. Our guide was super friendly and told us lots of information about the estate. The views were amazing! I would highly recommend taking the Off Road Tour and would love to take the West side tour if we are ever back at the Biltmore.

Have visited twice and will again! Instructors are great, skill level required is low to medium. Lots of time to practice. Prepared path for beginners and more advanced improved dirt roads for more advanced riders.
