Full description
This tour is ideal for those who want to learn about Charlotte's fascinating history while enjoying its varied architecture from a novel mode of transport.

After a brief orientation to acquaint you with your vehicle, you will play a game of follow-the-leader as your affable guide sets off. You will start by riding to the new cultural spaces of the southern end of Uptown, before riding towards central Charlotte for stories of how the city came to be.

Like a row of little ducklings, you will soon be zipping along at speed as your guide leads you to the historic Fourth Ward neighborhood, location for some of the oldest homes in the city.

The charming neighborhood boasts a handful of late 19th century Victorian-style homes, and is home to the oldest cemetery in the city.

But Charlotte is also a major financial hub and you will get to see some of the city’s magnificent skyscrapers up close. You will zip past outdoor fountains and public art works, glide through Elmwood Cemetery, and nip over to the imposing Hearst Tower near College Street.

Take a gander at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Uptown Charlotte's hip bars and clubs. Throughout the tour your guide will feed you titbits about Charlotte's past and explain why it is now becoming the hottest city in the southeast.
