Choose from 7 breathtaking routes with frequent daily and evening departures. Every tour leaves from one of two convenient start locations: Fisherman's Wharf or Golden Gate Park.

We took the Segway tour of Golden Gate Park. The staff was very "up-beat" and helpful. A bit intimidating at first but their excellent instruction got us going quickly. Our tour guide was Jeff and he did a wonderful job showing us the sights of the park. This was a great tour which included trails, paved pathways and streets. I am looking forward to the advanced tour next time I am in 'Frisco!

We loved this place and their staff. We initially did the Segway waterfront tour and loved it so we did the advanced hills. Segways are awesome and we will Deffo be looking to get one for home ASAP.

The tours are excellent and the guides really helpful and informative. The only area for improvement is the radios. They are a little outdated and less than optimal.

The office at the wharf was super friendly and helpful, we had to change tours twice and they could not have been more pleasant. Every conversation ended with "call us if you need anything!". Was faster to call than email them.

Did the GGP tour with Ady and it was FUN!!! She did a fabulous training and tour. There is no way I would have known or learned a tenth of what she told us if we had wandered around on our own. The 10am tour let us do the Japanese garden before (free 9 - 10am on M/W/F), and the Science Museum after plus got in a great great view from the deYoung observatory tower for free (learned about from Ady). There was an Indian food truck next to seg check in which was a good lunch also.

We decided to do the advanced tour on our last day. The training we got at GGP made us feel super comfortable, no way could i have done it without Ady's training. When they say Hills tour, they mean the hills! Who would have thought we would be going down Lombard Street toward the beginning of the tour. Was a riot zipping past all the cars waiting to go to Coit Tower. We got to see a lot of little things we had not gotten to in the prior days. Ellen did a great job of adapting with the issues of the group: late arrivals, drop outs, sudden huge winds

Only 2 cons: 1. Seems as if our groups pictures have not been posted to facebook when other groups after ours have. 2. After you finish you are so psyched you would buy anything with "Segway" on it, I want to be the only one with a "I segged Lombard Street!!" t shirt.

Hints: No matter what the weather i would bring a hat and mittens with you.

During January this year we brought a school group from Australia to San Francisco for a major school excursion. What's a visit to San Francisco (particularly with a school group) without doing a tour in style on Segways? We did the Beginner tour at the beginning of our visit, and then the Advanced tour just before we left. Our tour guides were very knowledge, enthusiastic, and funny (important when working with a school group!). This ranked as one of the most memorable things for our students (it's not every day that you get to ride Segways!) so thanks to Chelsea and the entire team for two great tours!
