We did the nighttime tour of Chinatown with Stefan. It was chilly (Sept) but they had jackets and gloves for everyone to wear (we all took the gloves). We had a great time! Stefan was very knowledgeable and entertaining as we went through the city. I would definitely do this again - it was the highlight of our trip, surprisingly!... More

This was a fun way to see more of Golden Gate Park (which is huge!). Terri was really fun and a great guide and had good pointers for things to see and do on future visits. It was really easy to learn to ride the Segway and they were very patient and thorough with the initial safety training. We only... More

We have been on at least 12 Segway tours. They are always a great way to see any place you are visiting and everyone should try it :). We took two Segway tours while visiting San Fran. First was Chinatown at night. It was cold! but they give you good jackets to wear, and hats & gloves if you want... More

This was on my bucket list! I may never walk anywhere again! I cannot believe how EASY it is to learn and use a Segway. That little machine helps you get around so many miles without getting tired. The Electric Tour Company was excellent. They show you a 40 minute video on how to use the segway. Then they have... More

Been living in the SF Bay area for 2 years, and given tons of tours to family and friend. and never thought these two tours would be so amazing. First thing you think is, this is touristy and probably cheesy. ITS NOT!. We had the luxury of having Carlos guide us on both, and he was so professional/funny/engaging and gave... More

Our first time on Segways and we weren't disappointed. This was a great trip. We did the waterfront trip and enjoyed it so much we have booked to do the trip up and down Lombard St. Our guide, Jack, was informative and fun. This is the only company we have seen which gives you ear phones so you can hear... More

This was a fantastic tour - we had so much fun. The 2.5 hours went too quickly. Carlos was our tour guide and he had a great sense of humour and provided us with information & facts about San Francisco. At first we thought we wouldn't be able to control the Segways, but they were easy to use and so... More

My husband and I very much enjoyed our Segway tour in Golden Gate Park. Zarrin, our guide, was FABULOUS. She was genuinely interested in making sure our group learned something about the Park and its place in the culture and history of the City. Very informative. She gave us great insight into the Park's history and the tour itself covered... More

I was in San Fran for a few days, and decided to take a Segway tour. I was in the Fishermans Wharf area, so called in to the office. The next tour that had availability was the golden gate park tour, so I booked onto it an hour and a half before it started, then travelled the 4 miles across... More

Sorry about the last minute cancel for the Golden Gate Park tour. And yes it is a very rare occurrence for a guide to get sick at the last minute. The park staff should have called you enroute to offer a reschedule or refund. My apologies for that customer service error. Your review and suggestions will be part of our... More
