Glide along the Welland Canal, discovering its triumph of engineering and the history of the Niagara region. Taking a Segway tour is the perfect family activity.

You then travel along the canal on a dedicated and peaceful path, where you learn about the 3 previous canals, and why they got built in the first place. You will observe the Glendale Bridge, and learn how it works and operates. You then head to the main control center and find yourself at the bottom of the Niagara Escarpment. You will climb the escarpment before taking a break and then discover the Twin/Flight Locks. Your guides will give you some interesting information about this Welland Canal, explain how the boats are lifted in, as well as how much time it takes to do so.

Guillaume , Thanks for making the Segway ride down Welland Canal an awesome experience. You gave us enough time to get used to the Segway at the start and always kept an eye on us all the time as we rode up and down the pathway next to the canal. My wife and me both loved the experience and would strongly recommend it to our friends and family and to any one else reading this review online.

Amazing tour!

This tour was amazing! Guillaume was extremely knowledgeable about the canal. There was no question that I asked that he couldn't answer. He was very patient with my overly excited 13 year old. He ensures to put safety first! I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Niagara Falls area in Canada!
