My daughter and I have taken several of these yes we love them. The preparation was fabulous. I have to admit that as an older parent I had some trepidations that I could do this. After our first time (Golden Gate Park suggest this for first timers) we wanted to do more and more. I wish they would actually rent... More

This was my first Segway experience and I can't say enough great things about Electric Tour Company. From the moment I made reservations to the end of the tour, the communication they provided was fantastic. From the email confirmations to the personal phone call, to the one-on-one training we received. Everything they did was first class. But what really made... More

First time Segway riders? No problem. We were a group of 6 riding in Golden Gate Park. The machines are easy to learn and FUN. Everyone wanted to own one. The tour is great. We had a groupon, but it would be worth the full price. You tour for about 3 hours and see the beauty of the park. You... More

I booked a tour of golden gate park to ease myself into the Segway without all the traffic and tourists around. I had tons of fun, the safety briefing and training was great. A bit speedy but you get the hand of the segway really quickly. The guide Jeff was great, witty and patient. they don't really allow you to... More

At first I was nervous, and the safety briefing showed us all the things that could go wrong, but all the instructors were great and the Segway did what it was supposed to. They are really easy to ride and I soon felt confident and could throw it around like a pro. Carey was a great guide and we toured... More

This was our first time riding Segways, and it was so much fun! The staff was a lot of fun, and our tour guide Carey (sp?) was great. Awesome way to see the city!

We joined the advanced hills tour with Mark and had a wonderful afternoon. Segways are always a fun way to see a city but the organizers - and Mark in particular - made it really enjoyable with an informative narrated tour of the city, lots of humour along the way to add to the experience. Thanks guys, this is our... More

We did the Golden Gate Park Segway tour with Kristian and it was brilliant. She was wonderful at giving instructions and the training made us all feel confident to go. The time in the park was excellent with some roads, some pathways and some off-roading. The company provided good jackets and gloves (much needed) and we all had a great... More

The advanced Segway tour was great, especially going down Lombard ST. Our guide, Marie, was very good & friendly. One criticism is their radios do not work well at all. If we were right behind Marie, we could hear 75% of the time. We had 8 in our group, and if you got anyplace farther back than 3rd, you could... More
