If you don't do this you are MAD!
The most amazing little machines you will ever get on , easy to use and very safe. Mike was our guide very friendly and gives a great tour especially down the crooked Lombard st. Grant was on the desk super friendly and informative. Thanks unforgettable !!!!!
We basically bought this package just to get last-minute Alcatraz tickets. But the Segway turned out to be a great way to see the City with an amazing guide. Highly recommend the trip.
Alcatraz was a great experience and really informative about life on the island. Segway tour was better than we expected and great fun . The only aspect I felt could be improved was to supply everyone with a hi viz vest for the tour.
The Alcatraz and City Segway Tour was the highlight of our trip to SF!! What a great time it was to ride those Segways around town!! Not only was it fun but super educational!! Our guide Lindley was awesome! She was so knowledgeable about the history of SF. My husband and I went with our three teens. Each and every one of us had a terrific time!!! The kids loved it! Believe me, it is tough to please a teen. We all highly recommend The City Segway Tour and of course Alcatraz!! Alcatraz is just an all round amazing and educational experience that can't be missed!
We visited Alcatraz last Sunday and it was very interesting. We spent 31/2 hours wondering around, the free audio tour was useful, giving us a good understanding of the history and events which took place on 'the rock'.
We took the sunset Segway tour on Monday evening. I was initially very concerned about my ability to control the Segway, but after only a couple of minutes with Adam (our guide) I very soon gained in confidence and skill. We went around the 'Downtown' area finishing at Coit Tower, which offered spectacular views of the area and the Bay Bridge. An exciting, new method of sightseeing.
We would throughly recommend both visiting Alcatraz and completing a City Segway Tour.
This was totally awesome!! My husband and teenaged son enjoyed every minute. Blake was our tour guide and did a great job touring us around the City. So much fun!!!!
Alcatraz tour was great, worth doing the audio trail which is in the price. The Segway was great didn't want to take part was just going to send hubby and my 13 year son. So glad I did it, Ross our guild was fantastic. Highly recommend.
Wonderful tour. It was really funny to ride a Segway and very easy too. We can recommend this tour.
Loved the segways! Great way to see a "big city". Had a great guide, Ross. We liked the Segway tour so much that we did another Segway tour in San Diego. Enjoyed Alcatraz. The audio tour was perfect - allowed each of us to proceed at our own pace, as well as very clear, informative info. Ferry ride to and from went smooth. Recommend this highly!
Great fun had by family with teenagers. They all loved it and tour guide was great. Saw areas of SF that we wouldn't have seen
Alcatraz Tour was handled flawlessly. Great directions and representative with tickets was in position and easily found. .
City Segway Tour was quite remarkable. None of us had ever been on a Segway,however the basic introduction and operations instruction were conducted in a professional yet "fun" manner by our tour guide,Josh.He was able to dispel all our apprehensions and set us at ease with his instruction. Josh by the way was exceptional in all aspects. He presented the "details" of the places we visited in a highly professional yet entertaining manner. More like touring with an old friend. Josh was truly a "gem" .
Highly recommend this tour for a fun filled way to see some of San Francisco Bay 's marvelous views.
What a good deal. It was great to be able to have the combo. There were people we met also on Vacation who were not able to make it to Alcatraz because they couldn't get tickets in time. This combo allowed me to get my tickets and pick my time with only a week before my vacation.
The City Segway Tour was awesome. Our tour guide and coach Ross was great at explaining how to operate the Segway and gave great information on the Tour. I am a bit of a History nerd and loved the details he shared about the city. The Sunset tour was a great choice. We were in an intimate group with a few others which made it fun. We were able to make some new friends. Ross answered all of our questions, was entertaining and kept us safe. We were able to make a great day of our visit to the Italian district a few days later based on recommendations he made.
Having the Segway tour the next day was also a plus. Time management on vacation is needed but it was great not to be rushed on our visit to Alcatraz.
Thank you so much for the great time. I will be recommending this activity to everyone I meet and plan to take Segway tours in the future at my other vacation destinations.
Had a wonderful day with Blake as our guide - he was fantastic and really made the tour very enjoyable. He paid attention to each and every member of our group - myself and my 15 year old son absolutely loved it. A must do on your trip to San Francisco - a truly memorable way to see the sights.
We did the Alkatraz, Segway tour in San Fransisco. Four of us my husband and myself a 20 year old son and a 16 year old daughter. Alkatraz and the views across to San Fransisco were AMAZING. The Segway tour guide was great , none of us had ridden a Segway before and within 10 min. Able. A BLAST!
Thoroughly recommend this tour if you are visiting San Francisco. The Alcatraz tour is very well organised and we took the 3 hours Segway tour which was very enjoyable and Claire (our tour leader) was very informative and fun.
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 :)
