Who is Glide N.E.W. LLC?
We have been providing FUN guided Segway tours in Wisconsin since 2005.
In the beginning, we didn’t know if Segway tours would be something people enjoyed, we just wanted to give people the opportunity to have fun on a Segway training course. When people started to show interest in a Segway tour in Peninsula State Park we got serious about offering tours in Baileys Harbor and Washington Island also.
Tours now span from Washington Island in the north to Sheboygan in the south. You can also Segway places such as Ellison Bay, Peninsula State Park, Baileys Harbor, Sister Bay, Sturgeon Bay, Green Bay, Cave Point, Manitowoc, Washington Island, Appleton, Neenah, Sheboygan, Egg Harbor, Thornberry Creek, and Kohler.
Visitors & locals book tours to celebrate special occasions, experience a Segway for the first time, and explore a new place. Now many groups & companies book tours as a team-building activity.
We are Wisconsin’s longest running Segway tours with the most experienced guides so you can be sure to have an unforgettable experience.
How did you get into Segway Tours?
Nick is the owner of Glide N.E.W. LLC and is a former teacher from Bakersfield, CA. His wife Laura is from Sister Bay, WI. After eight years of spending part of their summers in Sister Bay while Nick taught, they started looking for ways that they could spend the whole summer in Door County.
He read an article in an AAA magazine about someone giving Segway tours in Los Angeles and thought it would be perfect for beautiful Door County. The first-year Nick started with 11 Segways and gave tours for two months in the summer.
After eight years of annual growth, they were able to quit his teaching job and move to Wisconsin full time to manage the business. Nick’s only regret is that he does not have the opportunity to do more tours himself!
