Overview
This Segway tour of Toronto’s Distillery District introduces you to one of the city’s trendiest neighborhoods in just an hour, leaving you more time to enjoy the local breweries, boutiques, and galleries on your own. A Segway tour is the most efficient way to explore this small pedestrian-only zone as you zip over cobblestone streets with ease.
What to Expect
Your tour begins when you make your way to a central meeting location in Toronto’s historic Distillery District. Avoid the stress of navigating around cars and traffic in this pedestrian-only zone—an ideal area to explore by Segway.

A safety and instructional training will have you quickly up and running. Follow your guide past the district’s trademark Victorian architecture, as you hear insider tales from the area’s gritty, boozy history. Stop to sample craft beers at the Mill Street Brewery and artisanal treats at SOMA Chocolatemaker before returning to your original departure point.

The best way to see the Distillery District
