This was my first time on a segway and it was an absolute blast! Papa Duck (our tour guide) truly made it one of the best guided tours (of any kind) with his inside knowledge of the area, and willingness to let us cruise around and be goofy (because you on a segway) when appropriate and safe of course.

We had so much fun with this segway tour. Poppa Duck took good care of us, and showed us the city in a different light. The tour was informative and exhilarating. Thanks guys!

I was visiting San Fransisco on a solo trip for a short while and stumbled upon the Electric Tour Co. while wandering around the Fisherman's Wharf district. Before the tour, I had never been on a Segway before, so I was excited to see what it would be like. After watching a short and very informative safety video, Carlos showed... More

My family and I have been to San Francisco numerous times before in the past, however it was never as FUN and AMAZING as it was this time around with Electric Segway Tours!! Chelsea was our point of contact as she was the one who made our reservations. She was witty, sweet, courteous and a very nice person to talk... More

We did the wharf tour and got to ride segways on the street! Sounds scary but was really fun. We got to see so much more than we could by just walking around. Our tour guide, (Devon?) was great and explained everything, was pretty funny and gave us lots of suggestions on where to eat and what to do while... More

My wife approached this experience with some trepidation, but in the end gained sufficient confidence to admit that she enjoyed the experience. Congratulations to our guide Kelly, who gave her the confidencce and encouragement to persevere. Our only tip to newcomers to this experience is that whilst you are advised to keep an upright posture and use your "centre of... More

Golden Gate Park is so big that the only way to see it is on a segway. Our tour guide was Kelly and the tour began with 30 minutes of training followed by a 2 hour tour. It was a great way to see the park and get some fresh air. The tour was 7 miles long and covered the... More

If you're looking for a fun way to get around and see the highlights of the city I would highly recommend the Segway Tour. If you have been on a segway tour before definitely do the Advance Hills tour. We went many segway tours before in different cities and this one takes the cake for best tours. We covered so... More

This is a must-do activity. Not renting any bike......electric or nothing! San Fran has a lot of hills, trust me, you will think of this review as you zip by those sweating uphill! Great tour, so much to see! Keep riding til your battery runs low (which didn't happen and we were the last to return when the tour was... More

We had the advanced tour which was fantastic! The only downside is that I cannot think of any other Segway tour I can take that would top this. It is the best way to see a city in my opinion, and doing the advanced tour in SF is just the best you can do. Our guide (Devon?) was very professional... More
