Owner description: 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.

“So Much Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

If you're in San Francisco don't go home without doing this tour. Courtney, our tour guide, was so entertaining and knew so much about the city that we were laughing and learning the entire 2 hours. They teach you how to operate the Segway so you don't have to worry about not knowing anything about a Segway. We never rode one before and got the hang of it pretty quickly. We rode out on the streets with the cars, cyclists, joggers, etc... Tourists were taking pictures of us! It was the highlight of our short stay in San Francisco.

“Golden Gate Park segway tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

My sister, 14 year old daughter and I had a great time. My sister lives in San Francisco so we wanted to spend a day out doing something a little different from the usual sightseeing tours. We all had a great day out. Our guide was excellent, knowledgeable, patient and always ready to answer questions. All in all a professional tour company. A fun day for residents and visitors to SF!

“Night tour was a blast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

This tour was a ton of fun and Ellen was a fun, informative and attentive guide. We looked at the map afterward over dinner and could not believe how far we had gone! Our group stopped at a midpoint in Chinatown and we were able to sample some fantastic dim sum. Ellen also pointed out different places for food and drink all through the tour, can't wait to try Tony's pizza. We went up and down hills, through alleyways and got to see many sites that we plan to visit during the rest of our stay here in San Francisco. We especially appreciated the fact that the tour company made available jackets and gloves as it was a very brisk evening, we would not have expected it, but did appreciate it.

“Golden gate park Segway tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

Great tour. They emphasize safety training. They give you earphones so you can hear your guide even if you are in the back. The park is beautiful and for anyone who has visited the museums& gardens this tour gives you a new perspective. Parking on the weekend is free on the street but good luck finding a spot. We parked in the museum lot which was hassle free but expensive.
