Your guide: Karl Johnson,G.G Karl C. Johnson is a great fan of Cleveland,
a fact that is evident to everyone he encounters.
Johnson conducts personalized walking, automobile and Segway tours
of the city that he calls home.
A Cleveland native, Johnson enjoys sharing his city with visitors.
“I love people,” he said. “And, I love this city.”
Johnson went to the library to learn the history of Cleveland,
shaped by his life experience of growing up in the Glenville area,
along with his later years in Shaker Heights and Ohio City.
“I wanted to give a tour that was not architectural,” he said.
“It’s not a Gray Line tour.” His walking tours last two hours.
Tour I, the downtown tour, includes politics, government, transportation,
history, economics, current events, and personal experiences.
He is a resident of Ohio City.
Tour II provides a front-porch view of who lives where and which
houses have been restored.
Tour II begins and ends at the West Side Market, one of the finest indoor
markets in the world with more than 100 merchants.
(No pets, please, in the market.)
Segway tours are one hour long, and cover more territory.
Each person in the tour, up to a maximum of 4 people, has their ownSegway.
Each group is given a choice of full tour narration, meaning fewer
miles covered, or less narration and more miles.
Johnson often stops to describe certain landmarks in detail.
Automobile and bus tours are designed to specifically highlight the
areas of the city each tour group desires to visit.
Segway and car tours leave from Tower City Centre, on Cleveland’s
Public Square, walking tours from the West Side Market.
