We booked a family experience with the Segway on Santa Monica beaches. We were initially booked on a tour (4:00 pm), but arrived a few minutes late, so our tour had departed. Anyway, riding a Segway is not that difficult, so we decided to ride by ourselves along the beach. Lots of fun. Had to be careful as some of... More

The Segway Owner, Kevin, was so nice! We had time pressure, and Kevin helped us out and we enjoyed it. It was our first time, and our timeslot was for 10 am, and we received the instructions from Louis, who was great. We took the sidewalk to Venice Beach, and people were looking and us, and even took photos of... More

I was the only person booked for their 10 o'clock tour, when I arrived Kevin said I could rent the segway instead of having a tour so I could set my own pace and be on my own. I'd ridden segways several times before so this was a nice option for me. On my segway tours in other cities I... More

We booked Segway.la with some trepidation. We were a group of 10 of all ages and only four of us had been on a segway prior to the tour. We had two Kevins helping us and they were AMAZING! They made sure everyone was comfortable and confident before going out to the street. Once we got "rolling" we had the... More

they advertise as a tour but just gave us the segways and let us go off on our own. went to Venice Beach and back and had enough time left to go a bit further along Santa Monica beach. My 13 year old loved it.

Great fun thing to do with teenage kids. slightly awkward online booking (but walk ins also accepted if you are willing to take a chance on equipment being available) comprehensive training, well maintained equipment. Beautiful traffic free cycle path to use. A fantastic couple of hours

We went on the twilight tour which starts at the Santa Monica beach and goes north down the beach. Had a great time! The tour guide was really friendly and the Segways were super fun to ride. The Segway itself is well worth a go if you haven't tried it and the location is very impressive. Definitely recommended.

We loved our Segway rentals. The staff (Kyle) at Segway Los Angeles was so nice. He gave us a lesson on how to operate the Segways and escorted us to the beach path. My only advice would be to practice getting on and off a few times before leaving the rental office. 2 of the 4 of us fell getting... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
