This was a great experience. Our group found it to be fun, insightful and very well coordinated. The electric trikke's we used were super fun and enjoyable to ride. Learned tons about downtown Raleigh and historic Oakwood area. Will definitely do again.

We took the Untold Stories Trikke tour. It was great! Excellent guide. We were a little worried about driving/riding the trikke but after a little beginning jitters we caught on.
