Distillery District Segway Tour in Toronto

Distillery District Segway Tour

Discover one of the most distinctive neighborhoods in Toronto on this 30-minute tour by Segway! Step back into the 1800s as you tour Toronto's Distillery Historic District with your knowledgeable guide.

Your tour will begin with a brief training and practice on the Segway. Traveling on a Segway is a totally unique experience and most riders find them easy to use and lots of fun! Once you feel comfortable on the Segway, your guide will take you through the streets and brick-lined alleyways of the Distillery Historic District.

Had a ball learning to ride the Segway. Very thoughtful and informative tour. Was highlight of our trip to Toronto....We are 66 and 67 years old and was still able to ride...never too old!

Love it, maybe it should last a little more, but it was a fantastic experience.

Above and beyond my expectations. We arrived early so they started our tour early because they were worried about rain. I have heard about the distillery district but I had no idea what to expect ... it really is worth seeing. Our tour guide provided lots of fun facts as well as some great information about the area.
I was terrified on the Segway at first but once I figured it out I relaxed. They give a one-on-one orientation/training session before they begin the tour. My 15 year old son and his friend had no problems at all. I had a smile on my face from beginning to end.

It was very easy to maneuver the Segway. My guide adapted his highlights to my interest in architecture. I will definitely do this again.

I loved this tour!!!!! Literally made me want a Segway! My mum was scared to get on one and I thought she would be terrible on it. But they are such simple yet cool things to ride so she absolutely fine.
You get to ride about a lot on this tour. You don't just crawl around with a guide and stop every 10 seconds which I was happy about.
He distillery district itself is gorgeous!!!! Probably wouldn't have headed there if it wasn't for this tour as it's.not really walkable from many of he other toronto sights. But it was probably my favourite area of toronto. Lots of unique old building, boutiques and homemade bakery's.
Plan to spend the rest of the afternoon if you do this tour.
Although don't go eat in the brewery restaurant and sit inside-the beer production machines inside made it STINK and I literally felt sick by the time I finished my meal.
Gorgeous part of town and the Segways were such a cool thing to tell people we did
Our tour guide (blonde lady -sorry forgot her name!) was really sweet and down to earth. Guys in the office were really friendly too, and considering we were the only people on the actual tour, they made us feel very welcome.
Def recommend

A++ experience! Riding on a Segway was on my husband's bucket list so I surprised him with this tour as part of our 15th anniversary trip to Toronto. Not only was my husband surprised, but our tour guide was perfect for the experience. He had a fun-loving personality. The historical presentation was very informative. What a perfect experience! I would definitely do this tour again when we're in Toronto. ~ Andrea
