Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
Lots of people have been to San Francisco's Crooked Street, but how many can say they've gone down it on a Segway? The guides are happy to take photos of you conquering the streets of San Francisco. The terrain is tricky, so this tour is for experienced Segway riders only.

What You Can Expect
Starting on Beach Street, meet your guide and hop on your eco-friendly Segway, which allows you to cover more miles than you would by walking but still enjoy the fresh air. Plus, enjoy the side benefit of lessening the number of big tour buses on San Francisco’s hilly streets by participating in this activity.
Take off with your guide, stopping for plenty of photo ops and to listen to narration about city sights. Admire views of San Francisco Bay, and pass by attractions like the Aquatic Park and Fisherman’s Wharf. Look out at Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge, and see Coit Tower, the Bay Bridge, St Peter and Paul’s Church, Washington Square Park, and some of the city’s 350 staircases and pedestrian lanes.
Glide up the slopes of Telegraph Hill and Russian Hill, and, of course, ride down Lombard Street. Your tour ends when you return to the starting point.
Please note: You are required to have a minimum of two hours of previous experience riding a Segway in the last two years. When booking, you must indicate the details (where and when) of this past experience in the ‘Special Requirements’ field.
Incredible way to discover San Francisco. Segway is a great way to enjoy up and downhill streets...walking to this breathtaking view spots would be practically unbearable for your legs.
Cameron our tour/instructor was very entertaining and informative of each spot and also a great photographer! Covered Fishermans Wharf, Nob Hill, Telegraph Hill, North Beach, Coit Tower, and Lombard Street twice! We had some previous experience with segway touring which helped as you ride on the streets of SF and not on bike paths or walkways. Exiting experience, worth every penny!
Segway tours are a blast, the steep streets of Lombard made it more fun. I would highly recommend it
One of the best Segway tours we have down!! Papa Duck was amazing, fun and informative.We'd do this again next time too that's of sure!!
Great tour. Very knowledgable guide and very good instructions on operating segway. Safety was very important to them and we felt very safe the whole time.
Excellent throughout the entire experience. Must try.
Most fun ever! Challenging trip with great guide Carlos, who kept us feeling safe and took us to some fabulous vistas. Highly recommend this trip if you have previously experienced a Segway. Not for beginners.
Great tour, Melanie was a fun and informative guide, certainly wouldn't have tried some of those hills without her! Wasn't too sure about segwaying in traffic but she made us all feel safe. Her narration didn't sound old hat as I'm sure it can feel if you've said it everyday for a year. Great!
This was an amazing tour with an awesome guide! If you are an experienced Segway rider and are comfortable with the mechanics of movement, then this is the San Francisco tour for you. San Francisco offers some of the most diverse and challenging street terrain in the world and it's all there for you to experience. Our guide, Melinda, was great! She was adventurous, informative and fun and made the riding experience even better. If you have a few hours, I can't think of a better way of experiencing the City by the Bay.
Melanie was great, full of information. Our only criticism was that the two hour tour passed far too quickly. If we're in San Francisco again we will definitely take another tour, especially if you present a different advanced tour. We did consider many other streets more difficult than Lombard - it at least had good pavement.
Fantastic! We did Lombard street twice, went to Coit Tower and many other places with wonderful views and beautiful SF streets. I was surprised at the distances we covered easily. Our tour guide, Devo, was entertaining and enthusiastic. Riding a Segway down Lombard street was on my wish list for two years, so I had some pretty high hopes, and this tour exceeded them.
