Discover the spooky side of Toronto's Distillery Historic District via Segway!

We don't know if ghosts exist but if they do, we know they’ll want us talking about them on this Segway tour. The Distillery Historic District Segway Ghost Tour features stories that were definitely not made up. This popular Toronto ghost tour won’t be freakishly scary but what you can expect are a number of stories relayed to us by current and former employees from around the District and even a couple from the history books to make you ponder.

Your tour will begin with a brief but thorough training on the Segway. Traveling on a Segway is a unique experience and most riders find them lots of fun and easy to use. Once everyone feels comfortable on their Segway, your guide will take you, at a breezy 10 km/hr, through the brick-lined alleyways and streets of the 14 acre Distillery Historic District for some of the best storytelling around.

The Distillery Historic District features more than 70 ground-floor cultural and retail establishments in the restored red brick, Victorian-era buildings of the renowned Gooderham & Worts whiskey distillery. As one of Canada’s hottest tourist attractions, centrally located and just a short walk from downtown Toronto there is always something fun happening at The Distillery Historic District.

This tour is entirely outdoors and sometimes in dark conditions. Please dress for the weather. If you survive, we even have a bone-shaking treat for you at the end!
