Ellen Hasting – Lead Tour Guide of The Month
Ellen is a true Minneapolis native. Born and raised in the city, she grew up around the chain of lakes and was part of the last class to graduate from West High School in Uptown. After high school, Ellen lived out of state for many years before returning to Minneapolis in 2018 and settling close to the river.
The history of Minneapolis is a topic that Ellen finds fascinating and a constant source of entertainment. For the past couple of years she’s been a general Segway tour guide for the Mill City to Boom Island route. She’s excited to step up as a lead guide along this loop that passes the old mills and treks across the Stone Arch Bridge. She enjoys sharing the stories of the city’s industrial past and how it has evolved over time. She’s also delighted to be part of the team developing the new tour with a focus on Prince, our hometown icon. This tour combines Minneapolis history with a celebration of Prince’s legacy while gliding smoothly along on a Segway through the streets of downtown Minneapolis. Some might say it’s as fun as partying like it’s 1999!
The Segway mode of transportation makes all of our tours truly unique. This smooth-riding technology allows Ellen, and all of our guides to cover more ground and share more of the city on each tour.
So if you’re looking to explore Minneapolis’s history and iconic landmarks, hop on a Segway tour with Ellen. She’ll take you on a journey through time while sharing her love for the city and its history.
