NOTICE: Unfortunately, for the 2022 season going forward, due to declining health, I will no longer be able to operate DuluthGlides Segway Tours . As of July 27, 2022 I am pleased to announce the sale of the business to new owners who plan on continuing the DuluthGlides Segway Tour Experience in Duluth. It has been a wonderful 9 years sharing with you the “Segway riding experience” and Duluth’s unique history, culture and lakefront. Thank you for your previous and returning patronage and excellent reviews. I will miss you all. It has been a blast! I am confident Bill and his staff and some of my old staff will continue the DG tradition of excellence. Stay tuned as we make the logistical transition and they start scheduling tours again.

To save time and ride the Segway more, participants will be required to view the Safety Video prior to arrival.
We require a minimum of two ticket purchases to create a private tour, even if there are less than two participating. For more information on what is included in a private tour, please see the specific details of each tour under the “Segway Tour Menu and Bookings” tab. Additionally the FAQ tab will answer most of your general questions about DuluthGlides Segway Tours. The base ticket price increases for a private tour to go at your convenience plus an 18% gratuity is automatically added to the price of each ticket to compensate our guides for coming in during non scheduled times for a Private Tour.

Private tours are limited to the number of participants you have between 2 and 6 depending on the tour. Special requests of sights to see or visit that are not included on the regular tour you select will be evaluated for safety and additional time required.
