Overall a very good tour! :) tour guide Devon was really cool and we really enjoyed the Segway. A great way to get around SFO. My wife enjoyed it a lot though initially she was a bit hesitant to do it.
Tour guides where very cool. I agree with a lot of people that this is more a "go out and have fun on a Segway in San Francisco " more than a tour. We did get some information from a great restaurant scomas and some key sights in San Fran. But you are in for a cool experience on a Segway, expect no more.
People of al ages can do this tour, I would probably take my mother if we get the change and she is on her 60's.
Would do it again when I hit San Fran.
Incredible! I really thought that the alcatraz portion would be the best part, but we LOVED the segway tour! Would do it again and again in every city we visit!! So worth it!
The Segway tour was SUPER fun! The best thing I did in San Fran :)
It was a lot of fun and the highlight of all the touring we did. Good instruction was provided and the group had no difficulties on the tour. We can't wait to ride a Segway again! Great way to see San Francisco!
Excellent tour although I did not realise it would be so cold after the sun went down (we elected to go on a sunset Segway tour). We were given a loan of a jacket and gloves which were appreciated greatly. Segway was easy to operate after our little lesson on it. Staff great. Office was a little hard to find on Jefferson for the Segway part of the tour but they said that they would be getting more signs to make it easier (It's up a laneway).
The City Segway team is very professional and both our Alcatraz and Segway tours went smoothly.
The Segway tour was amazing, visiting all the city highlights and covering a lot of the history from these places with good spots for pictures. We will definitely do it again when back to SF.
The tour to Alcatraz was excellent, we have been to San Fran several times, but never took the tour to the island. The audio was very well done and they had sub tours that were also very informative.
The Segway tour was also excellent and informative about history and sites. The equipment was in excellent working order.
Alcatraz exceeded my expectations - the best audio tour I have been on across multiple continents. That afternoon when we got back we rented 'Escape from Alcatraz' on Amazon which was a fun way to chill.
City Tour: Its all about the Segway and not so much about the City, which actually suited us well. This may have been 'cos the guide was a newbie and needs to spend more time on his craft (he was dreadful). So I knocked off a star for the guide and gave the machine 4 stars. They also have an advanced trip which I will definitely do next time I am in town. So I'd say if you want the history, take a tram tour - if you wanna get out and about and have fun on a Segway, this is the way to go. BTW ... everyone on our tour became Segway proficient in minutes ... even a bunch of 60+ folks.
When combined, it was great value for money and made our weekend trip action packed and memorable.
Tour too long. We expected the guide to knowledgeable about the area and he wasn't. We found the tour more about riding a Segway than exploring the area. We have already been on a Segway tour previously and we found out there was an advanced tour that seemed better suited for us, but this was never offered to us.
