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.

Great tour! Jessica was awesome! Full of life and very informative. Not only did she make us have fun she also gave us interesting facts about Golden Gate Park. I've done Segway tours in 3 different cities and this one was definitely the most interesting and fun. My daughter in law never did it before and was very nervous. After the lessons and some practicing she was having the time of her life! She even said shed love to buy on! Ha ha! Fun day! Don't miss out!

I took my two sons along, one of whom has learning difficulties so I was a little anxious. However, the staff were very professional and patient safety being their obvious concern but also really fun and informative. I would definitely recommend this tour and given the opportunity, take one of their other tours too. Many thanks.

Everyone in our group loved this tour! It was one of the highlights of our trip. I have 2 teenage boys and they were thrilled with the trip. Our tour guide was a stand up comedian and historian. We would do this again.
