Booked this tour thinking we would see Golden Gate Bridge so had very low expectations when we realised we booked wrong tour....WE WERE SO WRONG. The best two hours in San Fran with our guide Shawndra (not sure of spelling sorry) had an AMAZING time. great park great history and fun fun fun

I highly recommend doing the 2.5 hours Golden Gate Park tour. Our tour guide, Brooke, was funny and knew a TON of information about the park. She shared info that I would've never known had I waked or biked the park by myself. The Segway instruction was great as well. They have a training area with cones and ramp to... More

We chose to do a Segway ride in the Golden Gate Park, as it would avoid the very dense traffic that seems to be everywhere in San Francisco. We were more than impressed with the care that was taken in training and covering all the safety aspects of this activity. Our tour guide was Brooke and she was fun and... More

We were a little apprehensive to begin with but our instructor and guide Jack was a very patient and reassuring guy, so we were soon whizzing along the streets of San Francisco with growing confidence. Jack was a mine of information about the city and had plenty of entertaining insights. Highly recommended!

Our group of 6 had a great time exploring the Fishermans Wharf area on this tour. We were novices, including a couple of children, 12 & 13 years old and their grandmother. After a bit of a nervous start in the training area, by the time we hit the road we were fairly confident and by the end of the... More

I had only 3/4 of a day to spend in San Francisco and wanted to see as much as I could, so I took the 2-1/2 hour Fishermans Wharf area tour. Wow! What a blast and we saw SO much more of San Francisco than I expected to see. Stefan was an AMAZING tour guide...very knowledgable about the area and... More

We took the golden gate park tour - was hesitant at first ($70 - the most expensive part of our trip!) but as soon as we started the training (going round cones in a car park) I thought it was worth it. You're hardly going to buy a Segway anytime soon, so when else are you going to ride one?... More

I was not sure how much I would like the Segway tour, but always wanted to ride a Segway. It was the most fun that I had on my trip to San Francisco and Napa. Everyone in our group had a blast. Going down Lombard Street was super cool. There were many gawkers looking and smiling as we easily glided... More

After being a bit apprehensive about the Segways we were put at ease straight away by our tour guide Johanne. He guided us through the park with ease with great knowledge about the park and it's history! The segways were fantastic! Such a brilliant experience and one I would thoroughly recommend
