“totally SALEM” Segway Tours

segwayTriad ECO Adventures is thrilled to announce a new guided tour option, called “totally SALEM.” Mostly on Mondays, and some late afternoons, your group of 2-13 can now enjoy a narrated two-hour Segway tour experience through history that includes fun-facts and city gems in and around the OLD SALEM community, Salem College & Academy, and the three adjacent cemeteries (perfect for a fun Halloween outing!). After a brief training session, you’ll glide upon the Greenway with a personable Triad ECO Adventures guide into/around OLD SALEM, then returning upon the gravel City stroll-way (downward to the Gateway). In addition to “Totally Salem,” Triad ECO Adventures offers a variety of other guided Segway tours (all for $59/ride) which focus on downtown Winston-Salem, Historic Washington Park, UNCSA, as well as a “Segs’N’city” and a “Mystery & Mayhem” tour. Triad ECO Adventures can also bring Segway tours to other areas of the Triad! For details and reservations on these glides, click HERE to visit their web site!
