What You Can Expect

Advanced Lombard Street Segway Tour

San Francisco Crooked Street Segway Tour

From the San Francisco waterfront to the neighborhood of North Beach, aka Little Italy, this advanced Lombard Street Segway tour provides the ultimate—and challenging—way to enjoy this famed crooked attraction.

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.

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

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!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2015

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

If you want to test your Seg skills, this is the tour for you, and Lombard is the place to ride. Excellent!
