Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

San Francisco Combo: Alcatraz and City Segway Tour

Enjoy Two Days of Fun with This Segway and Alcatraz Combo

Alcatraz Island Tour On your first day, make your way to Pier 33 and board the ferry to Alcatraz Island at your selected departure time. The quick ride across San Francisco Bay takes you past the city skyline and Golden Gate Bridge to Alcatraz. Your admission ticket guarantees access to the former federal penitentiary, now part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. 
On arrival, take a spellbinding audio tour of the cellblock, and listen to narration of a storied past enhanced by sound effects and commentary by former inmates and prison guards. Learn how the infamous prison once housed some of the nation’s most heinous criminals, including Al Capone and James ‘Whitey’ Bulger. Hear about escape attempts made by a number of inmates, and learn if anyone succeeded in leaving the fortified island.
Explore the compound at your own pace and return to the city whenever you wish; ferries depart roughly every half hour. You’ll enjoy your city Segway tour of San Francisco the following day, so there’s no rush.
City Segway Tour of San FranciscoThe day after your exploration of Alcatraz, venture onto the streets of San Francisco for a small-group tour of city highlights. At your scheduled departure time, meet your guide near Pier 45 at Fisherman’s Wharf. After a 30-minute orientation session, set off on your personal transporter. Each route offers plenty of photo stops along with informative commentary on the city’s fascinating history before returning to the pier. 
Morning or Afternoon Segway Tour (3 Hours)Take in vistas of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz from Fisherman’s Wharf. Glide past Ghirardelli Square, world-famous for its chocolate, and see the historic marine vessels at Aquatic Park’s Hyde Street Pier. Your guide points out an authentic San Francisco cable car and the towering Transamerica Pyramid, a distinctive landmark in the Financial District.
Sunset Segway Tour (2 Hours)See the sun set on San Francisco Bay and the red spires of the Golden Gate Bridge. You’ll motor through Fisherman’s Wharf and the Financial District before continuing along the Embarcadero, a waterfront promenade. See the Ferry Building and Coit Tower atop Telegraph Hill!

The tour lead, Kevin was excellent.

This rating is for our actual tour. It was a lot of fun, but it was not what we booked. Viator's confirmed 2:00 pm segway tour on our paperwork was somehow relayed incorrectly as a 10:00 am tour to the segway folks.. Had I not called to confirm locally we would have had nothing!! Kudos to the segway folks who booked my family into another, if shorter, tour.

Great trip. The Alcatraz trip was very good and we joined the initial guided tour with Jim which was very insightful about an ex inmate and what happened throughout his life. A very pationate man. Well worth going and glad we finally got to do this. The audio your is very well done as you move around the prison. The next day we did the Segway tour with our guide John. Again a very informative and fun tour. As a beginner I found the instructions easy to follow and was given good encouragement. We were on the Segways for 3 hours so was well worth the money. We saw a lot of San Fran around the area, much more than I thought, and loved every minute of it. We stopped at places for information, play time, visiting that particular area, questions or just chilling out. I can't say enough good things about the people who run the Segways or our tour guide John.

John was a very knowledgeable guide and even funny! I had a little trouble with the Segway, but he kept me close to him and safe! It is a fun and unique way to tour the city my 13 year-old son absolutely loved it. We will do this again.

Chris was our guide and he was great. He was very knowledgable and friendly. The best part was we had some extra time and he let us go down Lombard St.
