“Great way to see Washington Island”

Glide N.E.W. - Segway the Door Tours
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: This is the most popular Segway glide. We travel up and down hills through the park. It is amazing how effortlessly the Segway PT goes up the hills and how masterfully it controls the descent. We stop at several overlooks that give you magnificent views of Green Bay and the islands off the shore. You will learn history of the area and experience the beauty that abounds. You will have a great time!

After 17 years coming to Door County we thought it was time to see Washington Island. We have always wanted to try a Segway so what a perfect way to do both. It was so much fun. My husband was an immediate pro. I had a little bit a trouble bou our guides Josh and Paul were awesome and helped me become a pro. They were informative and awesome hosts for our tour. Could not have asked for a better experiences. I would recommend this for all ages except small kids.

This was the most fun part of our vacation. I am not an athletic individual, but I didn't need to be to enjoy this Segway tour. My husband and I signed up for the tour of Peninsula State Park. You have to call for a reservation, and then meet the tour guide in a parking lot. We follow him to a parking area in the park where he demonstrated how to ride the segway. All of the people our group (9) were newbies. Our guide, Paul, took time to individually instruct each of us and give us time to practice before we hit the road. Then he took us on the paved roads in the park, stopping along the way to give us information about the sites. Not counting the instructional practice time, we must have rode the segways for at least 1 1/2 hours. At the end of the tour, we pay, add a tip, and we are on our way as seasoned riders. I would surely do this again. Yes, it was pricey but it was worth the experience.

We had such a good time on our first tour, we went back and did a second one the next day. The operators of the tour company take great care to make sure everyone is comfortable on the machine before we headed out. We had an excellent guide (Leif Erikson - not a joke - his real name!) and he has lived 6 decades in Door County so he really knows some AMAZING stories. We cruised Peninsula Park for nearly two hours including stops to view the scenic overlooks and see the sights. The next trip was from Ellison Bay to Sister Bay via the shore roads: beautiful. Don't miss this attraction.....

We love taking Segway tours of Door County, and Segway the Door is the way to do it. Not only do you get the fun of riding a Segway, the guides also very knowledgeable about what you are seeing. There is a lot to learn about Door County!

The tours we have done are (in order - one each summer) Peninsula State Park, Washington Island, Bailey's Harbor Lighthouses, and Everything Sturgeon Bay.

They are all great tours. If you only have 90 minutes, our favorite so far is the Peninsula State Park Tour. If you have the time to spend, the Washington Island tour is a great way to see the island! And it's fun to whiz past all the cars on to the ferry as they're waiting to board.

Segways are easy to ride too, so don't think you can't do it. The key is to trust the Segway to do the balancing for you. With that, it is a breeze!

Did the tour in algoma when they were there in August. Fun and easy. Very safe. Owner was our guide. We will definitely travel north to do this in door county next year. We did this with our kids and they had a blast.
