About Us:
Go Tours Canada

Since 2005, Go Tours Canada has been telling the fascinating story of the Gooderham and Worts Distillery District.  In that time we’ve trained over 100,000 Segway riders, been featured in print magazines from over 50 countries, and become a must-see Toronto attraction.

ABOUT US: Who we are

Launched in 2004 as a Segway dealership under our Segway of Ontario brand, Go Tours Canada quickly sprang up as a way to give tourists and locals the Segway experience without having to buy their own.

One of the original employees, Jason Rizzuti, helped transform the business into a Tourist Attraction.  Joining the company in 2008 as a Tour Guide, Aaron Binder quickly realized the potential the business represented. In 2014 Jason and Aaron became partners in the business and ended up the majority shareholders in 2020.

In the last decade, the duo has diversified Go Tours’ portfolio of products to include additional Walking Tours, Tasting Tours, and Group Teambuilding Experiences. The company’s long-standing partnerships with many Distillery District businesses has helped create awareness and economy in the active neighbourhood.

As COVID continues to change the way we all view the future, Jason and Aaron continue to explore new opportunities while relying on their talented and tenured employees to continue delivering award-winning tours and experiences.

OUR FOCUS ON THE FUTURE

Together with our Micromobility brand, Segway of Ontario, we’re looking toward the next decade in transportation.

We’re passionate community builders and believe that the 2020’s will be the decade our cities are re-visioned to include more holistic transportation options and personal electric vehicles as a common part of traffic.

If there’s one thing about us that rings true – we love to get people moving.

Segway of Ontario is a Segway and Ninebot dealer based in Toronto run by the same management team as Go Tours Canada.
