“A Fun day on Washington Island with two great guides.”

Attraction details
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!

This was our second Segway tour. Our first was in IL. We opted for the longer Washington Island tour that was about 5-6 hours long. Our guides Leif and Barry were an awesome team. We were a couple and then were joined by 4 more couples that came together. The group of all of us was so fun. We had never met the other people on the tour, but they were wonderful and fun people and with our great tour guides it made for a fun filled day with good memories. Barry and Leif took care of everything and made sure everyone was doing okay and if anyone needed extra attention they were right there to help out. We are so glad we decided on this tour and what a nice time was had by all. We highly enjoyed this tour, the company, and the guides. We paid $168 per person. A sandwich and water bottle was included. If you get Barry and Leif you will have a great time.

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.)

"Didn't want it to end"- I agree! I still love gliding on the Segway 9 years later. I'm glad you had a good time.

We visited Door County and being avid worldwide Segway Enthusists, decided to take the tour of Washington Island. Barry was a great guide and very knowledgable of the area. It was a beautuful day in a beautuful place. Segways are so easy and such a great way to get around! Highly recommend!

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.

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. :)
