Golden Gate Park Segway Tour

Riding a Segway is similar to riding a bike. It's intuitive, but nobody is born knowing how to operate it.

You will practice on the Segway until everyone feels comfortable and ready to tour Golden Gate Park!

Fantastic Tour will definitely do another tour next time

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015 was a blast! What a perfect activity to do with our two young men. I've been wanting to learn more about Golden Gate Park for years now...this was the perfect venue for that. We're booking the Coit Tower tour with you for October or November when family comes to visit. We loved it!

Very much appreciated the availability of jackets, beanies, and gloves since we were not prepared. Maybe it would be good to stress that on the website. Great tour guide Sierra. Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Sound was a muffled a bit through the walkie talkie. Would be better if this could be cleared up. I would recommend this tour without hesitation.

Wow, this was really fun! We were able to see quite a bit of the park with an expert guide thanks Ty who provided lots of information you would have to go to a museum to learn about. Not only did the guide provide a running commentary, but he also kept pulling out pictures to show what things used to look like or the persons he was talking about. This trip was definitely fun on the off road segments and allowed us to visit parts of the park where we did not see another person. I love touring on a Segway, and the guide just enhance the experience.

Wow! This trip was simply AWESOME!!! My husband and teenage boys loved the tour and thought it was the highlight of our entire trip to San Francisco. I was a bit more skeptical and tentative about the tour in that even standing on a chair is out of my comfort zone. Our trainers, Sara and Devin exuded confidence that I would get it in no time. I remained unconvinced and panicked for the 1st 20 minutes or so, then something shifted and I began to get the hang of it. For those of you thinking this tour would not be for you due to fear of heights, speed, falling, mice, whatever, I encourage you to DO IT! Touring Golden Gate State Park on a Segway allowed us to experience all that the park had to offer that we could never have done on foot. Our tour guide Devin Devo was not only a capable, responsible shepherd of his Segway flock, he also clearly knows so much about the park and San Francisco! He was also so funny and entertaining. We all thought he was hilarious. This is a must experience, even for the faint of heart! I will never forget the looks of pure joy on my husband and boys' faces as they zipped about the park. It was AWESOME!!!
