Love this company! The staff person instructing us was patient and playful. We enjoyed practicing before getting out on the streets, feeling completely safe. The tour took us down by the water and past historic homes. I recommend it highly!

We did the Golden Gate Park segway tour as we felt the park would have been less crowded than the wharf which was the right decision. You initially get a lesson on how to use the segway but its pretty easy and within 20 mins our group was ready to go. All the staff we v helpful especially our guide... More

Our office takes time for regular team building events, and on a rare sunny and very warm August day in SF, we took the private Segway Tour with the Electric Tour Company. We decided to go with the Fisherman's Wharf location instead of the Golden Gate Park tour. Our tour guide was Mark, who was very "chill", friendly and knowledgeable.... More

We had a great time. They present a short movie about the Segways, and then instruct you on the proper and safe use in the demo area. By the time you hit the road you are very comfortable riding it. Terrence the guide was informative and funny, and most of all he made sure that my entire family was safe.... More

At first I was hesitant to take a Segway tour after I saw Ellen Degeneres fall on hers. However, with out of state family in tow, we were blessed to have Stefan aka Ste(fun) as our guide. He is the ultimate package. Informative, very funny, safety conscious and he has a smile that lights up a room. I highly recommend... More

My husband, 20 yr old son, 18 yr old daughter, and I signed up for the Wharf & Waterfront Tour. This was our first time on segways but we all did just fine with the training. Mark was our tour guide... he was hilarious!!! He really knows how to connect with people. I learned so much and laughed so much!... More

We had a great time cruising around Golden Gate park with Brooke. She was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable and made sure we all had a good time. Great way to see the park. We smiled the whole time. The tour is probably a bit expensive but it was way more fun than a standard bus or walking tour.

Beautiful tour through the Dahlia Garden, the Japanese Tea Garden, the lake, and lots of little spots you might miss if you were on your own. Our guide, Joey, was one of those guys who never met a stranger. And he knew the names of many of the park maintenance employees, hollering out to them as we went by. You... More

We booked the advanced Segway experience after using Segways a few times before. The streets of San Francisco provided something of a challenge, whilst also allowing us to see the sights and get a good overview of the layout of the city at the start of our trip. Our tour guide, Devon, showed us some excellent spots from which to... More
