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.

“SEGWAY - Golden Gate Park”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This tour was the highlight of our vacation in San Francisco! Our guide, Devine, was very funny, a great instructor on how to use the segway, and a wealth of information on the park and the city's history.

My wife was a little hesitant at first, but after some fun operating instructions, she was a pro in only a few minutes on the Segway.

If everyone follows the safety instructions, the guide will most likely treat those on a little off road adventure towards the end of the tour.

We are so thankful to the Electric Tour Company as we needed this fun break before heading back to Afghanistan. Devine thanks for the pin and look for a FaceBook posting of your pin on my or my wife's combat gear.

“Just do it”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

A little undecided as to do this or not - very happy we did. Great . Well worth doing it . We did the Golden Gate Park - just beautiful. The segways were a blast and easy once you relax. Wish they were legal in Australia. Great commentary from Mike (I think it was) a bit jet lagged at the minute.

“Just ok!”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

The segway tour was ok, nothing exciting, it says on the website 2.5 hrs with 30min training when actually the tour is only 1 1/2 hours the other hour is for training. Not worth $70 for just 1 1/2 hours thru a park. The guide we had was great but like I said the tour was just ok and $140 for a couple is really pricey for such a silly tour. The park is quite beautiful and the segways are kind fun but just to expensive.

“Good tour, Great Guide, Super Experience”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

This was the first time we were on a Segway. I have to say, it is something every one must try. Add a guided tour of SFO makes the experience even more exciting. I have to say this was one of the highlights of the trip. What made it even more interesting was that me and my wife were the only ones in the slot we had booked so it turned out to be a private tour.

Our guide (Liz if i remember right) was super and made it very very interesting for us. Besides the usual she also suggested some really nice places to eat including Tony's Pizza. We were on the tour for over 2 hours and every moment was enjoyable. The only time we were sad was when it came to and end.

If you ever get a chance to tour a city on a Segway, DONT MISS IT. Cant wait to get back to SFO for the advanced tour.

“Don't miss the Golden Gate Park Segway tour!”
Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

This company is great! I took the Fisherman's Wharf tour a few years ago and loved it. This trip I did the Golden Gate Park tour. It was even better! The whole experience is fun, entertaining and educational. Ady was our tour guide and she was fabulous!
