What You Can Expect

Golden Gate Park Segway Tour

Golden Gate Park Segway

Learn about Golden Gate Park and see its major attractions in an easy yet adventurous way. On this San Francisco Segway tour, you’ll cover more ground than you would on foot but still enjoy being outside.

Start by meeting your guide and participating in a 35- to 45-minute practice session to get used to your Segway, which most riders find to be very intuitive. Then set off, gliding through the park with your guide, who will tell you about the history of the park, such as how it went from uninhabited sand dunes in the 1870s to a well-planned city gathering space that’s home to museums, lakes, gardens and more. Spot sights like the Shakespeare Garden, the lawn bowling courts, the Conservatory of Flowers, Stow Lake and two impressive museums—the California Academy of Sciences and the de Young, a fine arts museum.

Cruise past Lily Pond, a pioneer log cabin, a grove of redwood trees and other lesser-known highlights, and make plenty of stops to take photos of this 1,000-acre (405-hectare) sanctuary that spreads from the middle of the city to Ocean Beach. Your tour ends with return to the starting point in the park.

My goodness this was the highlight of the trip. Julie is the best guide. My siblings and myself are seniors and we had a blast. I was scared at first but they really do a great job of training so you feel better. We saw so much of the park since my sister has a bad hip this would not have been possible. I would highly recommend this tour.

A great way to experience Golden Gate Park. Riding a Segway is not hard at all. Do this--you will have fun. Our guide had a great sense of humor and covered the basics cheerfully. And when we had questions, he answered them from a deep knowledge of the park's history and botany.
