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.

I have been on several SEGWAY tours. This one was the best. Our tour guide was great. The tour was so great the first day, we did the experience tour the next day.

Katy was a great guide - my wife and I have done Segway tours in various cities around the world and this was among the best. The instruction was also the most comprehensive we have had - no-one should be concerned about doing it for the first time with this Company.

Had a great experience with TJ the guide. The Segway's were easy to use and safe and the commentary was great. I would definitely recommend it to everyone who visits SF

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Not to be missed! We had the best tour engaging....Cam made a point to know everyone, and involve everyone. Memorized all the members of the tour's names. Which made for a more bonding experience. Very informative details about SF. Fun fun fun. The education beforehand was a bit lengthy. I had not read that I could not wear sandals. I was supplied with adequate shoes to wear. My husband was ready to do another segway tour the next day, had time allowed

What can I say -Over 60 on a Segway with people around me from age 16 to 75yrs. We had a great time. If I told you any more I would spoil the surprise. It does not matter if you are a complete novice provided you are reasonably fit this is the tour for you. The 'King' or our guide Kyle was the best. He not only taught us to ride the thing but through headphones gave us a guided tour of San Francisco explaining in detail all the sights etc and also had us all laughing all the way around putting my wife at complete ease. She was very nervous of the whole thing at first but loved it throughout. Truly one of the best tours / days out we experienced whilst on holiday.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

We loved our tour! The pre-tour instruction was thorough, so we felt confident by the time we hit the streets. Amber was a fantastic guide, providing entertaining yet educational information throughout the tour. We plan to return someday to take the Hills Challenge!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Had a great time! Our guide Kyle was terrific. Would recommend to anyone looking for a fun time.
