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.

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!
