“Fun and revealing ride around Golden Gate Park, S.F.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2011

Learning to ride a Segway was easy thanks to the helpful and thorough staff. Riding a Segway was much more fun than I'd expected. Our tour-guide, Devin, was entertaining, irreverent, and full of insights about the history and current events related to Golden Gate Park. He kept our group together, the pace comfortable, and stopped for rests even before anybody asked. I'd recommend this to visitors and locals, as I saw & learned things I'd not known despite working daily in this same park for seven years.

“An excellent way to get an overview of the main sites while having fun riding a Segway.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011

Rather than wearing ourselves out walking for miles we decided to give the Segway tour a shot. Riding those things was great fun. Our guide, Dane, was very knowledgeable and entertaining and the tour route gave us a chance to see many (most?) of the main attractions around the Wharf and also get a feel for the North Beach area. In all we spent about a half hour training and a little over two hours on the tour. The price may be a little steep, but in the end I definitely don't regret spending that money.

“Awesome, This Tour is a "MUST DO" when in San Francisco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2011

Excellent tour. Wear comfortable layers of clothes. Interior portion of tour got warm, but very breezy near water. Segway ride was worth the money, and the guide, Dane, was informative and entertaining. You get a nice tour of San Fran in addition to the Segway ride.
