Loved it! What a fun way to see around some of the sights. And really great to do so at nighttime when traffic was much more pleasant and often streets were totally empty. Thanks! Lisa and Holly, New Zealand
This is an awesome tour. 14 year old daughter and wife went with me. Papa duck, a.k.a.Devon, is a charming tour guide. Great informative tales of " the City" with a great flair of humor. We will be back. The group we were with became like family.
We loved loved Robin! She's awesome!!! Tour was so amazing and we loved how they gave us jackets and gloves because it got so cold!!! Will definitely do again in other cities we visit or when we are back in San Fran we will do the experienced uphill downhill one!
This was more fun than I could have imagined. I was worried that I would feel awkward on the segway, but it was a very natural feeling kind of like skiing, I'm told. The guide was great and the training was just right. We learned a lot and it was just so amazing being able to do that in the city at night. Be warned that you are going to be on your feet keeping balance and everything for about 3 hours, so do your stretches before you go! We can't wait to go back and do all of the rest of their tours. For a family of 4, I gulped a little bit when I paid for us all, but it was WELL worth the price!!!
The best tour I've ever taken in San Francisco. The training and support provided by the staff made learning the segway no problem. This is a must do and I can't wait to try out the other segway tours around the bay.
THIS WAS ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR TRIP. SAFETY WAS A PRIORITY SO WE WERE GIVEN PLENTY OF PRACTICE TIME BEFORE COMMENCING OUR TOUR. CARLOS, OUR TOUR LEADER WAS VERY INFORMATIVE AND MADE US FEEL VERY RELAXED. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS TOUR TO ANYONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE BEST PARTS OF SAN FRANCISCO AT NIGHT, WHILE USING A FORM OF TRANSPORT WHICH IS TOTALLY FUN.
Carlos did a great job keeping the riders safe during this outing. Segway at night is very different, and brings various challenges. It was a great tour, and I am glad I experienced it.
I am so embarrassed that my tour guide's name has escaped me, but he was amazing! This was such a cool way to see parts of San Francisco and hear its history that you probably wouldn't be able to see or hear in other tours. Learning to ride the segway was a bit unnerving at first, but it's incredibly easy! We stopped to take photos and my group was so much fun! Worthwhile experience!!!
IT WAS THE BEST MONEY WE SPENT ON OUR HOLIDAY. GREAT FUN GOING ON THE MAIN ROADS AT NIGHT WITH A TOUR GUIDE WHO ENJOYED HIS JOB AND MADE ALL OF US RELAX AND HAVE FUN.IF YOU ARE IN SAN FRAN. MAKE IT A MUST DO .
This tour was fantastic! The crew we had was very thorough in our instruction session. I thought I could master the segway immediately being athletic in nature but it took a while to let Droid (the name of my segway) do the work. I found myself over-thinking the process. Devon (I believe that is his name) was our instructor/leader and he gave me the confidence I needed master the segway. I have never had such an exciting adventure and the nighttime ride with the full moon only added to the beauty of the night. I thought the night trip was better than the day since there is less foot traffic and car traffic going on.
One note, and I don't want to be sounding prejudiced, but if you have a physical handicap, an unsteady balance problem or any issues with night vision don't take the segway tour. You are not only putting yourself in danger but others in the group and creating a huge liability problem for the instructor/guide and the Tour Company.
I'm 65 and I had the time of my life!
So much fun !!! The guides were great - and so nice to explore the city at night. Good for families as well
Excellent tour. Our guide Carrey was informative, professional, concerned about our safety and most of all fun. The whole operation was first class. Great experience.
We had a Blast!!! We loved riding in the City at night our Tour guide was Awesome! He was very informative of the City and gave us great places to visit. I would definitely do this again!!
An absolutely safe and wonderfully exhilarating experience was provided by the tour operators. Professionalism is their watch word. Devon showed us San Francisco as the residents see it with his special flair. This is definitely on my To Do Again list when I return to San Francisco.
I went for the Halloween tour at night. Unfortunately the wireless receive and headphones to hear the guide were very poor quality so I had a hard time hearing him while riding and missed quite a lot. That being said, riding around San Francisco on segways was a whole lot of fun and I got to see areas I wouldn't have otherwise checked out. The guide was also more than happy to repeat what I missed during breaks in the tour and afterwards so I felt like that helped partially make up for missing so much. He was extremely knowledgeable and there were a lot of great historical stories I learned about regarding certain areas or specific buildings or landmarks. I'd definitely recommend this tour if I could hear better. If part of the reason you're considering the tour is just to ride segways like it was for me, then it's worth it. But make sure you can hear well BEFORE leaving on the tour so they can replace your receiver and/or headset (that was my mistake). Better yet, bring your own headphones.
I liked our guide and the place was really good with safety and making sure we were all prepared but the tour itself was not very interesting or engaging. You advertised lantern lit lights of Chinatown...but they are not lit up...we did not stop for photos anywhere along the tour although you advertised photos stops. You advertised stops at Hyde Street and a chance to check out the light installation that makes the bay bridge glitter...we never went near the Bay Bridge. We never saw Alcatraz lit up at night. We did not end our tour on a sweet note at Ghiradelli square.
