The original San Francisco Segway Tour company. Come glide through San Francisco with us. Segways are easy to learn and fun to ride. We offer 2.5 hour fully guided and narrated Segway tours of the waterfront, North Beach, Chinatown and Golden Gate Park. Choose from 5 fun routes with frequent daily and evening departures. We have 2 convenient locations: Fisherman's Wharf and Golden Gate Park.Our tours are fun and informative. Read our reviews - we love having fun and so do our guests. We offer entertaining and thorough Segway rider training before you depart to explore and learn about the city We guarantee a personal experience with our small groups of 9 or less guests per tour guide.( 8 or less in the Park) Not only are the Segways fun to ride you will enjoy hearing stories, history and tales of the city. Each rider is issued a small radio receiver with a earbud so the tour narration can be heard as you glide from one scenic location to another. We want you to be safe and visible as we travel along many bike lanes so everybody gets (and some dislike) our highly visible and reflective vests. Warm jackets, fuzzy gloves and rain gear are all available at no charge if the fog, wind or rain makes an appearance.All Segway guests must be age 12 and older plus over 100 lbs. (45kg) No pregnant guests. Choose from these tours: Wharf and Waterfront Segway Adventure, Night Segway tour of Chinatown, Little Italy and Waterfront or the official Golden Gate Park Segway Tour. For riders that have been on segway tour before we offer two advanced tours: Hills of San Francisco tour that includes the crookedest street and Telegraph Hill or the Golden Gate Park Advanced Tour. All Segway tours are $ 75.00 per person and advanced reservations are encouraged.

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

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

Taking the Golden Gate Park tour was a great way to cover much ground over the park. We saw so much more than we could have just driving around. Jeff, our guide was fun, funny and so knowledgeable about the park in general. The half hour training session before the tour felt comfortable and very necessary. Guides didn't start us... More

including a 13-year-old who was finishing a round the world trip with his parents. We chose the Golden Gate Park tour, we wanted less traffic and more fun. The guides are good, the training is good, they don't just stick you on the Segway and head off. We saw parts of the park that even the locals among us hadn't... More

I was really nervous about getting on a Segway, even hard to sleep the night before, but determined to do it, after all it was me and my husbands 24th wedding anniversary.
