One of the fastest growing cities in the United States, Charlotte, North Carolina is an upbeat city with a recorded history dating back to 1567. Europeans first settled in the region in 1755. Today the city centre, known as Uptown, is a vibrant commercial centre of skyscrapers, museums, theatres, bars and restaurants.
While Uptown remains rather compact, the best way to explore remains the two wheeled way. Segways tours tend to last around two hours and are led by informative guides. Here at TravelMag we have sourced the best Segway tours based on a number of factors including itinerary, previous customer reviews and value for money.

The intent behind setting up Magic Carpet Glide is as fun as the name: To do away with work and walking.

Tours start in Uptown but really make the most of the mobility a Segway affords by getting out to Elmwood Cemetery and stopping off at the historic Fourth District along the way.
