We felt silly booking a Segway tour because... you know... it's a Segway Tour. How touristy can you be? Truth be told, it was the most fun we had in our entire week in the Bay and would ABSOLUTELY do it again. My boyfriend and I opted for the private night tour and it was well worth the extra money to go VIP. You can really create the experience you want with your guide and go at your own pace. We had a guide named KYLE who felt more like a friend than a guide by the end of the night. He was bursting with energy from the moment we walked up to the garage and kept that pace the entire time. He gave us a rundown of what to expect during the tour and then we got into our training. Kyle was patient, thorough, supportive and informative. He also made sure to get to know us a bit so we could have the PERFECT tour. Once we got on the road, Kyle shared history of the city and fun facts with a real sense of humor... Not the hyuk-hyuk jokes you expect from any old tour guide. Knowing we were sports fans, he even made sure to show us places relating to Joe DiMaggio. He led us to the World Famous Slice House in Little Italy where we had delicious pizza. We also braved Russian Hill and Lombard Street once we felt very comfortable on the Segways. Kyle took us all the way up to the top of Telegraph Hill where Coit Tower is located. Beautiful views of the whole city at night. So beautiful in fact that my boyfriend proposed up there. Kyle took pictures for us and suggested we go celebrate with egg rolls in Chinatown! Just like his pizza recommendation, his egg roll suggestion was perfect. We were having so much fun that we could have gone for 2 more hours. I can't stress enough how much an awesome guide like Kyle made this trip for us.
This was a great way to get an overview of Golden Gate Park. Our guide Kelly was exceptional and was very open to giving us the freedom of stopping when we wanted to or keep going at a faster pace. We even enjoyed some off the footpath time onto rougher terrain. Excellent education prior to trip on Segway use despite all our party having previous experience. Recommend this excursion.
We were initially scheduled for an evening tour of Chinatown/North Beach areas but it was canceled. The tour company employee, Chelsea, worked very hard to rebook us and are we ever glad she did. We changed to the Golden Gate Park Tour and it was AMAZING. Kelly, our guide, was very patient with us, showing us everything we needed to know about using the Segway. He made sure we were 100 comfortable before setting out. Once underway he made sure to point out stuff I'm sure we'd have missed on our own. The Haight - Ashbury are was way cool but the woodsy areas of the park were the highlights for us. If you have been undecided whether or not to take this tour, with this company, I can wholeheartedly without any reservation recommend these folks. They are the real deal and will treat you right from beginning to end.
Our guide Devin was very patient and accommodating. Covered a lot of territory on those Segways. A great way to see the city.
Really good fun and worthwhile. Our guide was Tracey and she was very helpful, funny and informative
Absolutely the best city tour I've ever gone on. Our guide Devin was super. I'd absolutely go again.
My family of three took this tour and it was amazing. Jeff, our instructor, was efficient in training and we were off before the rest of the non private tours. We travelled through the park and went many places that normal tours do not go. Jeff was informative and extremely helpful. I would recommend paying the extra and taking a private tour anyday. Easily our best experiance of the vacation.
We were the only people on this VIP tour and we had a great time! We probably traveled around 20 miles within San Francisco, up to Coit Tower (and down again!), Chinatown, North Beach . . . Carlos was a great guide!
Our guide was really good, we even ate a pizza where she recomend us. The segway gives you the oportunity to see the city as if you where walking but moving fast and no that fast that you might loose something, 110% recomendable.
Tour guide was excellent and we learned so much on the tour. Tour guide made safety a priority and helped us feel confident riding the Segway. We loved the sights and areas the guide took us to and loved the information shared during our tour. Segway Tours are the best ways to sightsee in this city. We will definitely do this again!
Fabulous tour. Once we figured out the segways, we were off and got to see so much of the city.
We went down Lombard st twice!
