You'll have 35 - 45 minutes of training prior to beginning the tour so you can get familiar with the most innovative transportation device of the millennium.

I had always liked the idea of having a go on a Segway, and so since we were going to San Francisco on honeymoon recently, thought we'd take the opportunity to have a go, and see Golden Gate park in the process. When we arrived in the morning the staff were all very friendly and efficient, setting us up and getting us ready for the tour. The training we were given was very helpful and put us all at ease (including my wife who was very nervous at the beginning!) and then we were split in to our groups for the tour.
We were not disappointed at all! The Segways were very intuitive and easy to use, Golden Gate Park was beautiful and had much more to see in it than we had at first expected, and our guide was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and genuinely seemed to enjoy her job! (To be honest I would too, I spent the whole 2 hours with a ridiculous grin on my face!) We both loved the whole tour, and actually agreed that it was our favourite experience on our honeymoon. A brilliant way to spend 2 and a half hours, Thank you very much!
Wonderful experience! I want to try again!
