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!

“Excellent Segway Tour”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Four of us took the Segway tour of Peninsula State Park and had a great time. Nick was very accommodating when making reservations and our guide Leif was very knowledgeable, having grown up in the area (he even "introduced" us to his family).

The first half hour was for training to make sure everyone was comfortable using the Segway. Although two of us had used a Segway before, the others were able to master it within a few minutes. Our trip lasted about 2 1/2 hours.

Did Leif's relations speak back to you? ;)
I'm glad you had a good time!

“So much fun”
Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

Group of 4 senior gals visiting Door County for a few days. Decided to try Segways in Peninsula State Park. Two of us had ridden before, two were new to segway riding. We had a great time. Josh, our guide was very patient, made sure everyone was safe and comfortable with maneuvering. The 2 hours flew, the scenery was beautiful. Would definitely recommend. Thanks josh for a great time.

I'm glad you had a good time! You chose the best all-around experience in the Peninsula State Park Tour. "The Park" has beauty in nature, amazing overlooks of the bay and island, and hills.

“Didn't want it to end - Segway tour of Cave Point and Dunes State Park”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

A super fun and unique thing to do in Door County! Riding the Segway is the fun part - whatever scenery you see is a bonus. It started with a thorough training on safely using the Segway so everyone could be comfortable on it. It's easy and anyone can do it so don't be shy. And the guide is with you the whole time. It' s a bit pricey compared to Segway tours in our hometown but worth a splurge. We didn't want it to end! (Be aware there are 2 different Segway tour companies in Door County and each offers multiple different tours.)

“So much fun!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We decided to do the Segway Tours in Door County because it would be a unique experience that we might not get the chance to do again - anywhere. We did the Peninsula park tour and it was a great way to go through the park and be able to stop at some magnificent views. The segways were very fun and easy to get the hang of. Our guide, Leif Erickson, was very patient and always had words of encouragement - "lean into it - trust the machine". Leif was also a great guide and had some amazing stories and knowledge of the area. We would definitely do this again. The park was a great 1st experience - we were able to go full speed (12mph) plus didn't have to worry to much about other pedestrians/cars. Perfect way to learn and explore.

“A Must To Do”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We decided to go for it and try this we were sooo glad we did. We had a excellent tour guide ( Josh) we were the only two people and he was great teaching us how. It was so fun I can't wait to do it again. The only thing is you really don't notice how pretty the park is because you have to watch what doing so much.

Big Tlk, Thanks for enjoying Peninsula State Park with us on a Segway. I'm glad you had a good time. I guess you will have to do the tour again and relax a little more so that you can see more of the beautiful scenery. :)
