For a well-rounded San Francisco experience, combine admission to Alcatraz, one of San Francisco’s most popular attractions, with a Segway tour of this famously hilly city. During the day, explore sights such as Fisherman's Wharf and North Beach (Little Italy) on your personal Segway, and take a ferry over to Alcatraz Island for a self-guided audio tour of this legendary penitentiary and National Historic Landmark District.
  • Segway tour and audio tour of Alcatraz in San Francisco
  • Get admission to Alcatraz, a San Francisco must-do that often sells out far in advance
  • See top San Francisco attractions by Segway including working waterfront in Fisherman's Wharf, and North Beach
  • Enjoy a Segway tour and return from Alcatraz by ferry at your leisure

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Get a view of Alcatraz from atop Russian Hill, then cross the bay to tour the infamous prison up close.
This San Francisco combo tour includes admission to Alcatraz, which often sells out, and offers you a memorable way to see some of the city’s top attractions. Cover more ground on a Segway than you would on a walking tour while still enjoying the fresh air.

If you chose a morning departure time, your Segway tour is first, followed by your visit to Alcatraz. If you chose an afternoon departure time, your visit to Alcatraz will be before your Segway tour.  

Your Segway portion of this tour starts by meeting your experienced guide at Fisherman’s Wharf. Spend some time practicing, and when everyone is comfortable, take off with your guide who will personalize the tour route based on your group’s skill level. As you cruise down the waterfront, admire views of Aquatic Park and the old ships and piers that make up San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, and enjoy unparalleled views of the bay and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.

Next, glide toward North Beach, also known as Little Italy, and take a look at Washington Square Park, a popular local gathering spot. See Saints Peter and Paul Church, and make your way to Pier 39, known for its many sea lions. Your Segway tour ends at this point.

For the Alcatraz portion of this tour, meet at Pier 33 to board the ferry to Alcatraz Island (be sure to arrive 30 minutes before your designated departure time).

Enjoy the ferry ride across San Francisco Bay, looking back at the city for a great photo op. When you arrive on the island, you’ll begin your independent tour of the former prison with a provided headset. Via the self-guided audio tour, learn about Alcatraz’s history, including the notorious inmates, the staff and some escape attempts. Take as much time as you’d like to walk through the cellblock and around the grounds, trying to imagine prison life. When you’re finished, re-board the ferry for the ride back to the city; they depart every 30-40 minutes.

Superb all round
, Sep 2019
The Segway tour was outstanding, the tour guide was Melanie and she was brilliant, funny and informative and provided loads of useful information. Alcatrax was just as enjoyable. The only thing I would point out is that ID is required for each visitor and not just the lead name which was not explained to us and could have been a major issue. All round a first class day, well worth the money

The Segway tour was the highlight of our San Francisco trip. Learning how to operate the Segway was much easier than we anticipated. Our Segway guide/trainer, Nick was amazing and entertaining, especially when providing us with fun facts and humming the "Star Wars" theme song as we made our way down the streets of San Francisco. I cant wait to take the advanced tour next time and take on the hills and winding Lombard street.

The Segway tour was the highlight of the trip for my teenage kids and their parents. You can cover a lot of ground. There were four of us, and we had no one else in our group so we had a lot of control over the itinerary. Since we had been on Segway before just once, we did the advanced tour. Going down Lombard in a Segway was a blast. Melanie, our guide, was terrific. She knows a lot and was a lot of fun. Part of the reason I booked the package was because I wanted the kids to visit Alcatraz, and it was sold out I only booked a few days before. We had a bit of a glitch exchanging our voucher for the tickets the tickets were in someone else's name - maybe we filled in for a cancellation. It got straightened out, but I'd advice getting to the pier early, just in case. The Alcatraz visit itself was interesting and well worth it. Overall, I'd highly recommend the package.

Our tour guide Carlos was awesome he was not only entertaining but made the tour so interesting, providing lots of information and great photo opportunities.
