Thoroughly enjoyable 3 hours around the streets of SF. It was a special experience travelling on the Segway as we became part of the tourist attraction. People kept smiling at us and taking pictures. I would recommend this to anyone adventurous enough to try.

“Electric Tour Company Segway tours are GREAT!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2009

We had never been on a segway before and I was a little nervous. However, the staff were great and they made you immediately feel at ease. My husband and I were visiting San Francisco for the first time. One thing to warn folks about is that San Fran. is windy and cold. I would imagine, even in the summer. We were there the very end of April. It was nice that the company offered gloves and even some coats. We all used the gloves. This tour was less than three hours, so you can fit other things into your day. Be sure to wear comfy shoes like tennis shoes...not flip flops. And bring your camera, there are always great photo ops. in San Fran. There are two different companies that offer segway tours. I would use this one again in a heart beat. In fact we did. We did the advanced tour before we had to fly back home. Electric Tour Co. was very professional and had everything figured out to run smoothly. Go for it !!

“Soooooooooooooooooooooooooo FUN!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2009

My son and I had always wanted to ride a Segway - so for his birthday I got him a gift certificate for the two of us to take the SF Segway tour as a fun and new things to do together. The tour was sooooooooooooo FUN! The tour company had noted it was my son's birthday gift so when we arrived they had made a birthday card for him that the staff had signed. We were nervous but the staff made us feel safe and at ease while they trained us well before hitting the streets. We toured all around the Fisherman's Wharf area, through North Beach, and more. The tour length is really great - you spend a good three hours from start to finish and don't feel rushes. Our tour guide was amazing, friendly, knowledgeable and fun. The entire staff we encountered was superb. The fee is very reasonable for what you get. And we are locals who spend a lot of time in that area but still learned many facts that we did not know about the area. We are ready to go back and do the Advanced tour and are interested in the Sausalito tour. Heck we'd do this same tour again. A very fun and unique way to see SF - I recommend it to locals and visitors alike.

“A Blast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2009

This was probably one of the best things we did in our 2-week trip to Vegas & San Francisco in May 2008 – and yes, I was just as surprised afterwards as you are reading this, since we had a full itinerary that included Alcatraz & The Grand Canyon!
This tour was just so much fun. The weather was amazing that morning, the tour itself was very well laid out & fun, the tour guide was funny, approachable & informative, and Segways are just a blast! Being from Europe, we had never even seen a Segway before, except in an episode of Family Guy, so we had great fun on them. I’d highly recommend this 2.5hr tour for anyone visiting San Francisco. It’s far better than you’d expect it to be!
