What You Can Expect
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.
Ten years ago, this area was derelict with abandoned industrial-era buildings. Today, this revitalized area still has its classic historic charm, but also boasts large modern sculptures, including one from the famous Burning Man Festival, as well as trendy boutiques, pubs and cafés. This is a pedestrian-only area, so you will not have to compete with cars as you tour the eclectic sites. Along the way, hear interesting historical facts and stories about the area from your knowledgeable guide.
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.
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
