      E bike/winery adventure
      We had a great time on our tour of 4 great wineries. Our tour guide Paul was great. He was very informative and a joy to be around. He kept us on time and on schedule with plenty of time to enjoy the winery tastings. Lunch was awesome. It was our first time using e bikes, they were very easy to use and made the tour that much better. Would definitely do this again. Thanks.

      2 hour Segway experience along the Welland canal
      Leader was great in teaching us how to ride. Very calm & very thorough. Very nice man. Was a great tour with history about the boat/ship locks along the canal. Was great seeing the ships go through the locks. Was a nice tour on Segway’s. I wish the tour was distance wise a bit longer. We didn’t want to get off!

      E-bikes and Wine equals a great day
      My sister and I went on the tour Tuesday August 21, 2023. My sister is an experienced e-bike rider. I have never been one before. We met our guide, Paul. He explained the e-bike to me and let me get comfortable before we started. We started at Stratus, then Bella Terra, Lainey and back to Ironwood. Each winery has exceptional wines to try. Paul was knowledgeable and so much fun to have as our guide. We had a great day with him.

      Not worth the price!
      Overall, it was ok, but was very over priced for what we actually received. Our guide, Paul was friendly and nice, but the choice of wineries (at least the first two) was disappointing, and the “picnic lunch” was a single charcuterie board shared between two couples, who we’ve never met before. Not the best and quite awkward. We were still hungry and ended up buying a pizza at the third winery at our own expense. Wouldn’t really recommend this to anyone especially at that price. All of the wineries produce decent wine, it’s really about the overall experience at the wineries, and this tour was a let down.

      Amazing Wine Tour
      This was an amazing experience. Four ladies over 60 riding scooters for the first time. Guillaume was our guide and was awesome. Safety first was his mission. We went to three wineries and a cider house. The lunch was delicious and the wines tastings were plentiful. I would totally recommend you try this tour. It was worth the money.

      Fun scooter tour
      Fun scooter tour we visited three wineries and a cider house. Stratus had a beautiful terrace. Bella Terra served a fabulous charcuterie board, finished up wine tasting at Lailey, then rode through beautiful parks over looking Lake Ontario. Our guide Fernando was great and very accommodating. Tip for first time scooter users: put your thumb and pointer finger around the stable top part of the throttle, then put your hand around the actual move able throttle piece, this will help you take off slowly.

    I would highly recommend this tour. This is a wonderful and unique outdoor experience very near the GTA. It was also very easy to keep social distancing and stay safe during the tour during COVID19 restrictions. I appreciated that the guide sanitized the equipment in front of us so that we could be sure that it had been disinfected. The experience was both a fun and educational and it was so much better than most of the other things that I have done over the years in Niagara falls. Over the years, I have done almost everything that there is to do in the Niagara falls region and this tour ranks near the top of the list of things to do in the region. It is a unique experience which will not disappoint. My 13 year old daughter and I took the 1 hour tour of the Welland canal on 3 July 2020. The day was very hot and the guide made sure that we stopped under shady trees which made it much more comfortable. The guide was quite knowledgeable about the canal and the region. I found the segway easy to master and we felt very safe throughout the tour. We were lucky enough to watch a boat going through the canal and were able to watch the locks and lift bridge in action during the tour. THe segway itself was fun and I think that we will try the Niagara Winery tour next as he also offers segway/wine tours (wine tasting at the end).

    I will definitely go again!

    We were first-time Segway users. Our guide was thorough and supportive in his instructions. We quickly became competent and enjoyed the experience of riding the Segway. The guide was quite knowledgeable about the history and functioning of the Canal. We are from the US. We know something about the Erie Canal and took a boat tour through the locks at Lockport earlier in the week. It was interesting to compare the two canals. The St. Catherine's museum with multiple (both canal- and non-canal related) exhibits was a bonus. And a special bonus for us was that when we returned to our starting point an enormous ship, the Canada Shipping Lines "Thunder Bay" was in the canal next to the museum. It moved on down the canal as we were eating our hamburger at a picnic table. A thoroughly enjoyable experience,

    Fun on a Segway to see the Welland Canal - highly recommend it.
    We got an extra bonus seeing a TWO ships going through the locks - one of them a cruise ship that Guillaume made sure we could see.
    He was great taking pictures and videos to share with us.

    Guillome, our guide, was amazing!!! He was very patient with everyone. We were by far the oldest in our group. G was very patient and made sure everyone was comfortable. I enjoyed the information he gave about the locks (even gave new info to my hubby who grew up around the locks). I highly recommend Niagara Segway. Great value, great guide, great segways and great tour!! Thank you Guillome for the wonderful memories and awesome photos

    My friends and I did a 1hr tour along the Welland Canal with Guillaume. He was very knowledgeable about the canal and it’s history and very friendly . The segways are easy to learn/use. Guillaume also provided stops along the way to rest as well. Highly recommend to give it a try and learn a little piece of local history in a region that has a lot.

    We had never been on the Segway tour before and we really enjoyed this experience, thoroughly. Guillaume was a fantastic tour guide, instructor, historian, and conversationalist not to mention very humorous. If your nervous to try this out for the first time, worry not as Guillaume will instruct you & ensure you have the driving down & practiced before the tour. The whole experience & the stops along the way for the historical narration and to chat made the trip a quality learning and social experience. He keeps a safe eye out for you & gives you advice on navigation that really helps throughout the tour. Thank you so much for making our trip so special and we'll definitely be back again!

    The Welland Canal Segway Tour was a phenomenal experience! Guillaume, our guide, was a patient teacher as our family of 7 learned how to navigate the Segways. He learned our names immediately and our safety was a priority as we rode in the parking lot until everyone was comfortable before hitting the trail. Guillaume was very knowledgeable and stopped at various points along the canal explaining the history of the canals and locks system that connect Lake Ontario to Lake Eerie. He also engaged us in conversation, genuinely interested in us, which added to the enjoyment of the tour. An unexpected surprise included Guillaume taking photos and video for us to remember the experience. Visitors (and even locals) to the Niagara Falls area should not miss this amazing experience!!!

    We were a group of 7 work ladies enjoying a Segway Tour on Easter Monday. We all had a great time. Learning the Segway was easy, even the most hesitant of us became very comfortable quickly. Book your tour with Niagara Segway you won’t be disappointed.
