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.

As visitors to San Francisco, with two teenagers in tow, not only do you want to see the sights, you want to have an experience...this was a great experience. Devin, our guide, was fantastic, knowledgeable and very entertaining (even if you include the occasional "dad joke").

Following the well delivered training, to get everybody comfortable and up to speed, we enjoyed 2 hours exploring Golden Gate Park which was more fun than if we had just walked around the park. Why walk when you can segway? Warning: teenage members of the family may want their own segway after this tour!

I have lived in SF area for a long time but have not seen some of the sights in San Francisco that I got to see via Segway tour. Our guide Jasmine as fun and funny. She really made us all comfortable on segways before taking us on the road. Made the trip interesting with fun historical facts. Highly recommend this company...so do check it out with your family.

Very fun outing. Took my son and we had a blast. Our guide Z was great. The tour through the park was informative, fun, and beautiful! We will be booking our next one on the Wharf or possibly the Electric Bike tour. Great, professional, helpful, and friendly staff.

We took the 10 am Segway Tour with Eli. After a very thorough instruction and safety briefing, we set off on the byways and highways of Golden Gate Park with six other guests. Eli was both informative and humorous. We spent the better part of two hours cruising around the gardens and lakes in the park, with stops at historical points of interest. Eli carefully guided us past other visitors, vehicles, and possible bumps along the way, all the while telling us interesting bits of information about the sights we were seeing. We stepped off the Segways near the Aides Memorial to take a short break. We were very impressed by how well the Segways were able to negotiate the hills and some of the 'off-track' grassy slopes. There is no way we could have seen so much of the park in the same amount of time if we had chosen to walk. By taking the Segway tour we were able to identify those places in the park that we wanted to return to later. All in all, the Segway Tour was great fun. We will remember it as a high spot of our visit.

If you have ever ridden a segway tour, you MUST take this tour! There is nothing much that beats riding up and down the hills of San Francisco and riding down Lombard Street TWICE, bypassing the line of cars! We also road up the beautiful scenic route to Coit Tower! We previously went on a tour in Berlin with City Segway Tours (another awesome company), but jumped at the chance to go up and down hills throughout the city. We were taken off the normal touristy routes and got to to see the wonderful streets and neighborhoods. Our guide, Mark, was fantastic! Mark was punctual, professional and always take care to make sure the group was comfortable. We were almost left behind because we were several minutes late, but it made me appreciate their professionalism and respect of the whole group's time. If you have some hours to spare, hop on this tour! Also, dress warmly!
