“Unique Touring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013 via mobile

This was such a fun adventure! The three of us, all above the age of 60, presented ourselves to Leo, the owner of this unique establishment. He couldn't have been more patient. He gave us a great tutorial on the electric Trikke and off we went with nary a mishap between us. What a great way to see Dubuque and soak up the history of this Masterpiece on the Mississippi. Don't miss out on a chance to experience the city from a completely different perspective. Leo makes it fun and interesting.

“most fun I've had in long time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

Leo was so helpful with our group of 8 (ages 60 and up) showed us how to ride Trikke and gave an exceptional tour of Dubuque. His knowledge of the history of Dubuque was excellent and he was so much fun to be with. We were a bit clumsy at first on Trikke and he showed us how to ride, it was the highlight of my trip. I recommend it for all ages for a fun afternoon. The historical tour was great but I'm going to bring my grandchildren back for a fun tour. Leo can arrange specifications for your group's needs.

“Looks like a fun time.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2013

We met the owner at Ichiban Japanese restaurant last night.
His concept and execution is very exciting.
It is wonderful to see a home grown business like this.
We will be bringing our friends from California when they come.
It is a "Gotta Do" kinda thing.

IHG,

“Great tour of Dubuque”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2013

We have done Segway tours before and loved them, so when we saw the sign for Tour Dubuque, we thought it looked fun. We've never been to Dubuque before and knew nothing about it and we had a limited amount of time, so it seemed like the perfect way to get the most bang for our buck. It was actually not a Segway tour, but a Trikke tour. The Trikke has 3 wheels and a throttle on the handlebar which is different than a Segway, but it was easy to learn how to use and before long we were off on our 2 hour adventure.

Having no previous knowledge of Dubuque or its history, there was a lot of information to take in. I told our tour guide that it was like drinking from a fire hose. First he took us along the river front which is being developed into a very nice area. Then he took us to see some amazing historic houses in all kinds of different architectural styles. We actually stopped and went in to St. Luke’s Methodist Church which has the most amazing collection of Tiffany stained glass windows. Beautiful! We closed our loop on the city by seeing the quaint downtown area.

This was a fun and informative tour. I would recommend it!!
