What You Can Expect

San Francisco Waterfront Segway Tour

Take a Segway tour of San Francisco's waterfront

A Segway tour in San Francisco gives you the ease of exploring the city on wheels while still enjoying being outside in the open air. You’ll cover more ground than walking but won’t be trapped inside a tour bus, and the Segway is easy to use, which you’ll discover during a 35- to 45-minute practice session with your guide.

When you’re comfortable on your Segway, your waterfront tour starts as you follow your guide past Fisherman’s Wharf and the city’s many sights along San Francisco Bay. You’ll make plenty of stops to take photos and listen to commentary from your guide.

See attractions like Aquatic Park, the Dungeness crab stands, the turnaround for the city’s iconic cable cars, Ghirardelli Square, the National Maritime Museum and historical ships docked at Hyde Street Pier, Fish Alley, the Fisherman’s Chapel, and the submarine Pampanito. Pause to take in views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge, and learn about the city’s fishing industry and seafood processing.

After this introduction to one of San Francisco’s most popular districts, your Segway tour ends back at the starting point.

1st time on a Segway and it was so much fun! Our guides taught us how to to ride and showed us all around town-including a stop for gelato. Our guide, Nic, was fun, informative, and kept us entertained with her musical talents!

My family of 5 took this tour as it was the start of our first trip to San Francisco. Myself, my husband and our three college aged kids all really enjoyed it. We found the tour a wonderful way to see so much about the city. The Segway's were easy for all of us to use. We loved seeing so many key parts of the city and it helped us to gage where we wanted to explore next. Well worth the price and we all highly recommend it! It was a big highlight of our trip!

If you are looking for a fun way to see some sights I highly recommend taking this Segway tour. No one in our group had ever been on a Segway before, never been within a few feet of one, and now we are seriously considering buying some! They are so easy and fun to ride! looking forward to the advanced tour in July!!

Our tour guide The Captain was amazing. He knew so many fascinating stories about the city, I would have been happy paying the ticket price just to hear his dialogue. After the tour he answered every one questions about dining, drinking and further touring.
Our first time my wife and I did a segway was easy and tons of fun. People were waving at us from the sidewalk...We felt like movie stars.

It was extremely informative and felt personal! The guides definitely make sure you are comfortable with the segway before leaving. I was not worried at all riding on the streets because the guides were so great! Looking forward to the next one I get to take with this company!
