Buck is great. At the last minute, he helped my wife and I with transportation to our wedding. Everyone was coming from out of town, so having a piece of Richmond history to transport our guests was the perfect touch. Everyone was responsive, on time, and hospitable. I couldn't think of a better group to work with.

That lady at the front desk was rude, unfriendly and didn't even smile. When me and my friend came up there she looked and talked to us like we didn't belong there , she didn't present good customer service at all.

Had a great time in the city and loved driving the Segway. Highly recommend as a quick and fun way of getting to know any city.

I went on the free tour they had at the vcu sustainability day. When I first signed up for it I was scared I was going to fall off, crash, or just plain dislike it, but that wasn't the case. This was far more fun than I was anticipating.
At first I was hesitant, but once I got use to it I found myself wanting to own a segway. The hardest parts for me in order of difficulty were getting moving/on the first time, stopping the first couple times, and getting off the first time.

After 10 minutes getting used to the equipment is was pure fun to ride to different sites in down town Richmond. I can't wait to go on my next Segway tour.
