I can not express enough on how wonderful this tour was. Brian was our tour guide and even though we opted for the walking tour instead of the Segway tour it was just as great. All the staff were above and beyond professional courtesy. the tour was very informative, and very camera worthy. we had samples of the beer and... More

Had a great tour here today. In a spur of the moment decision, my partner and I went on a private tour with Joe. He was knowledgeable, funny, and knew how to tailor the tour to our interests. It was a great mix of facts and stories, and the Segway ride was also a blast.

This was our first time trying it and I absoluetly loved it, Mike our guide was amazing and was very knowledgeable about the history of the distillery and treated us to try the Mill street brewery and the chocolate factory which by the way was fabulous. I will definitely be back to do another tour with them in the near... More

We came from France because we had heard about the distillery and segway tours. And we were not disappointed. Indeed, already using the Segway is simple, and learns very quickly. Then, thanks to our guide, we learned a lot about the distillery (the contruction are evolving, its destruction by fire, and now his rehabilitation), including the stories of "ghosts" that... More

It's the 2nd time we go on this tour and we still love it ! We decided to go on this segway tour to celebrate my son's birthday. The tour was perfect, the team was very nice and the guide was very professional. Merging history with the fun of the segway is a wonderful idea ! It is the best... More

The ghost tour was below average and expensive for the 3 stories you get. Perhaps do the regular Segway tour of the distillery and maybe that will be better. Besides using the Segway which was very fun the actual content of the your was below average.

Hi Cmart1094, Thanks for reviewing us, I'm curious about your comments as we've performed thousands of ghost tours with no complaint. Can you email me, aaron@segwayofontario.com, and let me know what you didn't like about the tour? I'd like to hear some more detailed comments so we know where to improve it. Thanks, -Aaron More

We booked this and took the tour the same day. Great one hour tour of the distillery district. The Segways were very easy to learn to ride and our guide was full of stories and history of the area. Highly recommended!

We took a one hour walking tour. We walked in and out of a number of renovated buildings to see paintings of historic events in the area. In many ways the history of the distillery is that of Toronto. We tasted chocolate at Soma and also beer at a local brewer.

It is very easy to ride a Segway - they take 10 minutes to teach you 1-1 first. Then we were off round the interesting and historic Distillery District, with our guide and also shop managers he persuaded to come and tell their stories to us, all telling us about the ghosts (tongue in cheek) and history of the area....
