San Francisco Waterfront Segway Tour

Take a Segway tour of San Francisco's waterfront

Riding a Segway is similar to riding a bike - it's intuitive but nobody is born knowing how to operate it. You'll have 35 - 45 minutes of training prior to beginning the tour so you can get familiar with the most innovative transportation device of the millennium! You will practice on the Segway until everyone feels comfortable and ready to tour San Francisco!

On an eco-friendly Segway tour you'll see more sights than you could cover on foot, and have lots of fun while you help to keep San Francisco "The Greenest City in the United States."

The San Francisco Waterfront Segway Tour is narrated and makes numerous stops for photos.

Tour highlights include:

  • Municipal Pier and Aquatic Park
  • Fisherman's Wharf and the Dungeness crab stands
  • Cable car turnaround
  • Ghirardelli Square, home of delicious chocolate!
  • National Maritime Museum and the historic sailing ships at Hyde Street Pier
  • Spectacular views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge
  • Fish Alley, Fisherman's Chapel, WWII Liberty Ship and Submarine Pampanito

We had an amazing day touring San Fran on the segways w/ our guide Cam! We didn't leave on tour until everyone was comfortable on their segway and then we had a blast. Definitely saw more of the city than we would have otherwise AND received great tips on restaurants and bakeries along the way. We still cannot believe the ground that we covered durong those two hours.

This tour was fun and exciting. Our tour guide Kyle was very knowledgeable about San Francisco and the warf. If you decide to do this I would see if you could get Kyle as your tour guide.

My son and I had a fantastic tour and ride with Katy our guide. The Segway experience is one of a kind, and the sites are terrific. We loved leaning into the hills as we zipped up the steep inclines, and going downhill was just as fun! Highly recommend the experience!

this was my first Segway tour. The Segway was easy to learn how to use and fun to drive. We covered lots of area, and I was surprised how easily the Segway went up and down long hills. Our instructor TJ was great, and very entertaining
