On a beautiful, sunny Labor Day Weekend in 2011, our founder and company president, Edward “Tac” Ralston, opened the “doors” to Segway of Charleston, the first and only Authorized Segway Dealer in the Charleston, South Carolina area. Our first office had no actual doors, or walls for that matter; we were in an open air tent with a table and chairs together with a mobile Segway mobile van with 10 recharge ports and 10 Segway PTs generously lent to us by Segway of Richmond.>Our original tours began at the USS Yorktown and toured the grounds of Patriots Point and the surrounding forest trails. While fun, these tours were primarily focused on the Segway riding experience and when we found our current location close to Mount Pleasant’s Historic District (the Village) we knew that we had the perfect combination of history and natural beauty for our tours. Since our humble beginnings at the Patriots Point location, we now have our office a few blocks from the Historic District behind GDC Home furnishings and next door to Moultrie Middle School. We have our own fleet of 10 Segway PTs and a team of experienced Segway guides. We pride ourselves for our attention to safety and detailed training that strives to make your experience (whether your first or fiftieth) with a Segway a fun, memorable, and safe event that you will long remember.

3. Please come prepared for a tour. This means wearing comfortable, weather/temperature appropriate clothes and shoes (flat, secure shoes please) and please eat & visit a restroom previous to arriving (We have no restroom in our office, although there are facilities nearby and on the route. Be aware that this can effect tour time for everyone, including other groups of guests.). Available restrooms are a particular issue in the morning and on Sundays. A little advance planning can go a long way. 4. Age requirements are 14 and over, with all guests under 18 accompanied by a parent or guardian willing to cosign and take responsibility for the minor. 5. Segways are calibrated within a set weight range of not less than 100 pounds (45 kg, 7.14 stone) and not more than and not more than 260 ponds (117 kg, 18.6 stone). Fore safety, these are important numbers to respect. 6. For safety and legal reasons, anyone pregnant or thinks she might be pregnant cannot do a tour, although we welcome their return for a tour after their delivery. The rest of the party is welcome to do a tour if this is agreeable with everyone in the party. 7. We try to stay within the 1 or 2 hour timeframe, but please allow some flexibily for overage regarding reservations, other appointments, flights, etc. You may also be sharing a tour time with another group and we need to be considerate of their time and tour needs as well. 8. In the summer months, the Charleston Lowcountry can be very hot and humid. If you are not accustomed to this, we suggest a morning or afternoon tour. BOOKING: 1. Tours over 6 people cannot be booked online and must be booked through us directly (843-730-3464). Groups larger than 6 also require a deposit &/or pre-payment; 2 tour guides for 2 groups within the tour; and are subject to a 15% automatic gratuity. Size of the tour is also limited by available of Segways, but we will do everything to accomodate your party and make your tour fun for all. Feel free to ask and we'll do everything we can to accomodate. GRATUITIES:  While not required (except for large groups) tipping is allowed and follows the same basic guidelines as for wait staff, taxis, etc. It is an acknowledgement of a job well done by your tour guide.
BEFORE ARRIVING TO TAKE A TOUR: 1. All of tours must be reserved in advance (2 hours ahead for all but our 9:30 AM tours, which must be reserved 12 hours in advance.) Unfortunately, we cannot take “walk-in” guests. 2. All guests must arrive a minimum of 30 minutes prior to the tour time for paperwork, helmet fitting, and training. This is a requirement for all guests, even those who have riden a Segway before, although guests with experience usually proceed at a faster pace than those without.
CHECK ONINE CALENDAR FOR TICKET AVAILABILITY
In 2001, the same year as the unveiling of the Segway Personal Transporter, the City of Charleston in a concern about the growing number of licensed tours running in downtown Charleston decided to not allow any form of motorized personal tour/rental vehicles in the Historic District. This included motorized skateboards, mopeds, and Segways.
We show Charleston and the Lowcountry in a more unique and relaxed light. We chose tours of the Village in Mount Pleasant, across Charleston Harbor from the historic district of Charleston. Just as Brooklyn offers the best views of Manhattan, the peaceful, quaint Village (founded only 10 years after Charles Towne [Charleston] in 1680) offers the historic charm of Charleston without all the people and bustle. No surprise that the historic district of this fishing village has been the setting for numerous commercials. television shows, and movies. The Village is the quintessential sleepy Southern town; a real life<="" span="">
