We had a blast! We had ridden before but this was the most thorough familiarization class we have had. Trish out guide was energetic and complemented the tour with her narrative and education of the area. We would do this again with the same crew.

What a fantastic way to spend an afternoon and see San Francisco! 2 and a half hours of fun. The Segways themselves I found strangely liberating. We were cruising through the chaos that is San Francisco traffic. It should have been nerve wracking but oddly it wasn't. I was actually more at ease on the Segway than in a car.... More

My husband dragged be along on this Segway tour and I have to say I loved it. This was my first time on a Segway, but got great training and was amazed at how easy and fun it was. Our guide was interesting, fun and educational as we cruised the streets of San Francisco. Due to the wind it was... More

This was a fab tour. The safety training was thorough and reassuring, the staff friendly and professional (our tour guide Trisha was very funny as well - bonus) and the insight into Golden Gate park was informative and entertaining.

I did 2 tours with this company - both the introductory and the advanced crooked streets tour. Although I've never ridden a Segway before the guys had us up and running on them quickly and took care to make sure we were comfortable at each stage of the training. The tours both lasted around 2.5 hours and while there was... More

Last week we joined an Electric Tour Company morning segway tour of Golden Gate Park - what great fun! Went with my 15 yr old son and was rather apprehensive but no need to be worried as staff spend plenty of time training and explaining how to ride before setting off on a wonderful trip around the beautiful park.

The staff is wonderful. Our guide was really good. The group we were in had fun in Golden Gate Park. We saw things we did not know existed. HOWEVER, it is possible to get hurt, so be advised. Be certain you know how to stop properly.

Hi Jon. Glad you liked the tour and our tour guides. From your comments seems the tour and tour guide part of the activity was much better than a 1 star review. We want everyone to have a safe and fun experience. We do work very hard on rider training and guest safety. For park tours the first 40 to... More

Definitely the most fun you can have on two wheels in San Francisco. Great tour guides who train you well before taking your segway out on the city. With your new found confidence on the segway you can really enjoy the sights and sounds, and soak up the atmosphere. Your tour guide will regale great stories of the history and... More

We had great fun doing the Segway tour. We did the 2.5 hour tour which is really just about the right timing. It starts with 45 minutes instructions, but this is part of the fun experience. Then followed by around 1.5 hour cruising through San Francisco. It is really a nice activity and the crowd around you are all looking... More
