We highly recommend this tour. Cameron was a fantastic tour guide and it is so much fun to see the city on the segways. The Alcatraz tour was also very good.

Had great time on the Segway tour. Kerry our guide was great, gave us good basic instruction and then Took us on a very interesting trip around the sights of San Francisco for three hours. Also the trip to Alcatraz was very interesting and well organised. The audio guidance was excellent.

Awesome from start to finish. Our tour guide Carey made the Segway tour for us. He was witty, entertaining and informative all in one. I highly recommend this tour.

This was an awesome tour. We had so much fun on the segways! Also the tour guide was very informative, friendly and helpful. He provided headsets which meant we could hear him all through the tour. We felt safe, comfortable and just had the best time. The Segway can seem a little scary at first but at the end of the 15 min training you'll feel like a pro. I would definitely recommend this tour - I would do it again if I return to San Fran. This tour is more about the Segway experience than the sites of San Fran though which was fine for us.

We booked this with mixed feeling but it was the only way we could get tickets to Alcatraz. However, it turned out to be thoroughly enjoyable. Our guide Dan was patient and understood what we were comfortable in doing.
Thankyou for providing such a memorable experience and the photos.

Very nice tour with a nice guide. Cool to drive around the streets of San Francisco on a Segway and very easy way to cover big areas. Highly recommended!

The Segway is one of the best mode of transportation in hilly San Francisco. We had a great time with our guide Dan. He showed us all the famous sites, but also smaller streets and he took some great photos of us. He was a very good guide. This was clearly one of the highlights of our trip to San Francisco.

Our guide Marissa and the entire tour were amazing. It gave us a chance to see several parts of the city within a few hours. Very fun to cruise around on the Segways and especially nice with all of the hills in the city.

Segway is a brilliant way to see the city. Our tour guide Allen, was interesting, great fun and accommodated our needs perfectly. Alcatraz is a must. Both trips were well organised and perfect if you're short of time.

Who knew a Segway tour could be so much fun? Our guide, Carey -Fishermans Wharf location, was great. He had us up and steady on our Segways in no time and without being "mother hennish" he was alert to to traffic and making sure we were safe - all the while, giving us details about San Francisco and the sites we were seeing. We covered so much territory even, motoring down Lombard Street without a hitch.
This is a great way to see San Francisco! The Alcatraz trip, boat out to the island and audio tour of the prison's history, is also a must do.

Outstanding, easily one of the best tours I've taken. Guide, Carey was great, provided a very informative narrative, and quickly taught us how to ride the segways. Don't miss this tour!!!!!

This was a great tour. One of my favorites of many. It was our first time on a segway. My girlfriend and I are both in our mid forties. She was a little sceptical about doing it at first. But loved it. We were able to go and see places we would have not on our own. We were able to get around traffic much better than if we were in a car. Our tour guide, his name was either Allen or Aaron, sorry I can't remember, did an awesome job. Great way to see the city.

We had to split our Alcatraz and Segway tours a day apart - but communication around this was excellent. Alcatraz audio tour was the best I've ever had - you can spend any amount of time you like there. Our Segway tour was cool - Johannes was a FANTASTIC guide - private is the way to go; so much fun

There were 4 of us and a private tour guide. AG knew the area, was fun and cared about our safety. She took photos of us and was the most excellent guide! She completely went above and beyond! We saw great views if the Coit Tower, Alcatraz, Bay Bridge and even road down the Lombard brick hill! Very exciting!

My wife Jama and I really enjoyed this experience. We got to see the city in a great, open way that we never would have otherwise. The instruction was perfect, the guide was knowledgeable and responsive to our needs. One thing we both were surprised at was how tired our feet were after the ride. the constant shifting of weight to stay balanced on the Segway was not hard but be sure to wear a very supportive pair of shoes. I would recommend this experience to anyone.

They make you feel very comfortable and it was a lot of fun. What they don't tell you is that you will ride/operate on the streets with the traffic and there is no refunds if you aren't comfortable and choose not to do it.
