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.

My mum and dad were at first perplexed by this new fandangled technology, and I could clearly see in my mum's eyes her fear when first learning how to ride the segway. However after the great tutorial and lessons mum and dad were both exclaiming how awesome it all was!

I was a little worried at first when my husband told me that he had purchased tickets. See, I am a 50 year old woman who can't even ride a bike! What am I suppose to do with a Segway? A machine that can't even stand upright by itself!!! I walked in with butterflies in my stomach. The staff was so nice and informative that after the instruction session, I was actually pretty confident and eager to start the tour. Once the guide led us to the road, the real fun began. The 10 of us were set up in a box shape, 2 rows of 5, and you just cruise down the streets and people on the sidewalks were waving to us. We WERE the attraction!! It was just sooooo cool! We made left turns and right turns, went up hills, then down, then around!! Our guide, Marie, was fantastic!! Please, if you are just like me, a little timid, do not miss this Segway Tour, this could very well be my favorite excursion! And I have done many, many excursions in my 50 years.

I was a little nervous about the Segway tour before we go there because I'm not the most coordinated and know how San Francisco traffic and streets can be. This tour completely exceeded my expecations and put my mind at ease.

Our tour guide was Marie and she was fabulous! On the basic tour you check out lots of areas down by the wharf, Coit tower, and North Beach (Italian district). We also had plenty of time to stop for photos which was great too.

My family took the "advanced" Segway tour. After a short refresher course, we spent the next 2 hours touring San Francisco's hills via the segway. What a fun way to see the city! We went up and down the hills and even descended Lombard Street twice! The tour guide, Jeff, was informative as well as entertaining. Our biggest complaint was that the radio system did not always work and it was hard for the riders in the back of the single file line to hear what was being said. Other than that, it was an excellent tour. My sons wanted to do it again the next day!

What a lovely way to see the hills of San Francisco! We have Segwayed in cities throughout the U.S. and Canada and NOTHING compares to the thrill and pleasure of flowing up and down the hills of The City. Lombard Street is the coup d'etat, the tour de force, the grand coup of the outing, and alone is worth the fare. A great group of guides, great machines, what a thrill !!!
