What we See

Glide Adventure tours of Mount Dora includes both history and scenic views of this historic lakeside town in central Florida.

Your Glide Adventure tour begins at Mount Dora Boating Center and Marina at 148 Charles Ave Mount Dora , FL where you will receive hands on training to safely operate a Segway PT before heading out to waterfront Evans Park. There you try out some different terrains and speeds to get comfortable and accustomed to handling your Glide.  We then regroup to head over to the Port of Mount Dora to stop for a photo op in front of the iconic Mount Dora lighthouse and then enter to explore one of Mount Dora’s hidden gems, Palm Island Park to weave through intriguing nature paths and explore the raised boardwalk over the water’s edge. Watch for native birds and an alligator or two!  We then get ready to “Climb Mount Dora” and check out  beautiful and historic homes like the Donnelly house and glide through several of the town’s well known and historic neighborhoods. The tour will then turn back to glide through the historic downtown business district. We’ll pass the Historic Lakeside Inn which was built in 1883 and is central Florida’s oldest continuously running hotel and overlooks beautiful Lake Dora.  From the hotel we will then travel back to end at the marina.

Jimmy was our excellent Segway tour guide in Mt Dora. He kept us safe as we heard the history of the area. The Segway tour is a wonderful way to see old Florida and get off the beaten path. We will do it again.
