What You Can Expect
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.
It was FUN! It was informative....a terrific way to experience the park! Kelly, our tour guide, was kind, experienced, and set us all at ease! He loves his job and it shows! We highly recommend and will definitely do again!
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.

We had a blast! Great tour! Jeff our tour guide was great!
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.
Great time with a wonderful guide, Trisha. She was bubbly and made the tour really fun. This was our 2nd time on Segway and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend this.
The four of us had a blast on our segway tour through Golden Gate Park with Ty. Would highly recommend it!!

We had an absolute blast!! Trisha was wonderful. Great fun, really stressed safety, very informative. She made sure EVERY ONE had a great time. Thanks a bunch!
Fantastic tour - the guides made it a really fun experience and a great way to see the park, particularly the off road section at the end! Worth every penny.
