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.

All Segway tours are $ 75.00 per person and advanced reservations are encouraged.

“Great fun!!”
Reviewed May 18, 2009

This was a really fun experience. The training was very good..made me very comfortable and ready to go! The group was small, 8 people and the guide uses a radio to guide and narrate the tour. Bring good shoes and a coat and of course your camera.

“Great Fun!”
Reviewed May 17, 2009

We decided the day before to try the segway tour. It was so much fun. The staff was very good in training everyone and safety was the utmost. Our guide, Jerome was very informative. We live in S.F. and we still learned something new about the city. Jerome said we will be S,F,'s main attraction for the day and we were. Tourists taking photos of us. At the end of the tour around North Beach and Fisherman's Wharf, we went to a pier by Aquatic Part and had a free for all. Around 2 blocks long of pier where we could ride up and down and around anyway we wanted. That was fun.

“Could not wipe those grins off our faces hours after the tour.”
Reviewed May 12, 2009

Thoroughly enjoyable 3 hours around the streets of SF. It was a special experience travelling on the Segway as we became part of the tourist attraction. People kept smiling at us and taking pictures. I would recommend this to anyone adventurous enough to try.

“Electric Tour Company Segway tours are GREAT!!!”
Reviewed May 9, 2009

We had never been on a segway before and I was a little nervous. However, the staff were great and they made you immediately feel at ease. My husband and I were visiting San Francisco for the first time. One thing to warn folks about is that San Fran. is windy and cold. I would imagine, even in the summer. We were there the very end of April. It was nice that the company offered gloves and even some coats. We all used the gloves. This tour was less than three hours, so you can fit other things into your day. Be sure to wear comfy shoes like tennis shoes...not flip flops. And bring your camera, there are always great photo ops. in San Fran. There are two different companies that offer segway tours. I would use this one again in a heart beat. In fact we did. We did the advanced tour before we had to fly back home. Electric Tour Co. was very professional and had everything figured out to run smoothly. Go for it !!
