Halifax: City Segway Tour

1. Halifax: City Segway Tour

Climb aboard a Segway and make seeing Halifax’s sights a breeze as you glide effortlessly up the city’s many hills. There are two tour lengths to choose from to suit your sightseeing plans and schedule. Both tours include training, stops for pictures, and time to enjoy the visited sites. Check-in at the kiosk on the Halifax Waterfront, sign the waiver and be kitted out with the safety equipment. Prepare for your Segway adventure with 30-minutes of comprehensive training including ample practice time. Then, follow your expert guide along the Halifax Waterfront Boardwalk before heading into the city to see the sights. Benefit from the local insights of your guides and enjoy stops for photo opportunities. Your tour duration depends on your selected option. The most popular is the 3-hour City Tour that takes you into the heart of Halifax to see some of the highlights of downtown.

What people are saying about Halifax

Did the Halifax sightseeing tour by Segway. The tour started a little later than agreed, but it was just great! After intensive theoretical and practical instruction, our guide led us in a row through the city to the sights. All eight participants in our group were able to understand their instructions and information well at all times via a headset. The route was quite demanding, since partly - due to the structure of the city - on steep paths, eg to the citadel. Segways and headsets were in good condition. Perhaps we also benefited from the glorious weather on this October 5th. But in the end, all eight German participants were extremely enthusiastic and impressed by this tour!!

Nice tour to see all the highlights. In the beginning you get instruction how the Segway works. By means of an earpiece you will hear information during the ride and there are regular stops. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable.

Very flexible organizer who postponed the almost 2-hour tour by 2 hours because of rain. Tour guide was interesting and entertaining.
