What a great way to see the city! This was our first activity in San Diego. We had never been on Segways before, so we were a little nervous. We were shown a "how-to" video of a little stick figure that kept landing on it's face, so I was not feeling very confident. As soon as I stepped on the Segway, I realized how easy it was to control. Ryan, our guide, was fantastic and the tour took us all over the city including the Harbor, the Gaslamp Quarter, and Balboa Park. The tour lasted approximately 2 ½ hours and it was well worth the money! Tons of fun!

The tour guide was superb, knowledgeable, and personable. The group was small enough that we got personal attention.

The tour was just great. Thought I would have trouble as I have just had back surgery 5 months ago and don't have good balance but it was no problem. Our guide Jon was fantastic - great knowledge of the area and very good at making everyone comfortable on the segways. I would highly recommend this tour.

The San Diego Gaslamp District Segway Tour was exceptional. The tour guide was knowledgeable and excellent and seeing the Gaslamp District by segway was a 2 hours well spent on a motor means that was extremely efficient compared to a walking tour. I'm now looking for segway tours in other cities.
