Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Riding a Segway lets you cover plenty of ground but at a more leisurely pace than a bus tour. The included admission to Alcatraz makes this combo a quick and entertaining way to see the very best of San Francisco. Tickets to the legendary landmark often sell out far in advance!
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 at the designated meeting spot near Anchorage Square Shopping Center. 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, the Palace of Fine Arts, and the Marina 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 North Beach before continuing along the Embarcadero, a waterfront promenade. See Washington Square Park and Coit Tower atop Telegraph Hill!

I bought the combo because Alcatraz was unavailable for 3 weeks. So, I paid more then I wanted to but was receiving a Segway Tour. Well, Alcatraz was incredible PERIOD. If you come to San Francisco, you must visit 'The Rock'. The next day we showed up for the Segway portion of our package. OMG, what a blast!!!!! My wife was a little reluctant, however after a few minutes of one on one instructions, she was ready to go. Our guide Josh was awesome too! Everything went well at check in for both after booking with Viator.

The Alcatraz tour was great. The City Segway Tour was more than great! My young adult children say that it was one of the highlights of the trip to California for them! Michelle was an awesome guide! I would definitely recommend the Segway Tour!

We had a great time. The segway tour was very stressfree and we enjoyed the scenery. Alcatraz was very interesting and nice except for the weather. Overall we liked the experience quite a lot.

Alcatraz was great, pretty much what you'd expect...but a blast nonetheless. The Segway Tour was so much fun! I didn't know what to expect exactly, and this totally exceeded my expectations. Our tour guide, John, was super nice and informative! the Segway was easy to operate, I was a bit nervous about that initially, but it was no big deal. We saw lots of cool things and learned a lot of information. Overall it was totally worth the money spent!

We had an absolute blast! My nephews absolutely loved the freedom of zooming up and down the San Fran hills on the Segway! Our guide was super safe and educated us very well on how to manage the Segway on the steep hills...

We wouldn't have been able to get to Alcatraz if we didn't have the opportunity to by the combo - glad they planned ahead! The Segway tour was fun - and we soon got the hang of it - my teenagers were terrified of being seen on a Segway but soon got over that angst and had a great time. Our guide was fun while keeping us all safe and a some interesting stories to add. Could have skipped the trip down to see Scoma's and maybe just had it pointed out in passing - would have skipped Ghirardelli's too but the restrooms were a good idea!

Segway tours are always a hit! You get to see the city up close and enjoy the outdoors as well. The weather cooperated and we had a really nice day to tour San Fransciso!

Absolutely amazing. I was expecting a good time, though a bit nervous because of segway no experience but all went absolutely great. On a segway Josh did really great job caring about us on the road and keeping us safe from cars while giving a good ride through the city. I would say that both Alkatraz and Segway tour is absolute must have if you are visiting SF!
