Return Details

Returns to original departure point
A Segway tour in San Francisco gives you the ease of exploring the city on wheels while still enjoying being outside in the open air. Cover more ground than walking but won’t be trapped inside a tour bus, and the Segway is easy to use, which you’ll discover during a practice session with your guide.

When you’re comfortable on your Segway, your waterfront tour starts as you follow your guide past Fisherman’s Wharf and the city’s many sights along San Francisco Bay. Make plenty of stops to take photos and listen to commentary from your guide.

See attractions like Aquatic Park, the Dungeness crab stands, the turnaround for the city’s iconic cable cars, Ghirardelli Square, the National Maritime Museum and historical ships docked at Hyde Street Pier, and the USS Pampanito submarine. Pause to take in views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge, and learn about the city’s fishing industry and seafood processing.

After this introduction to one of San Francisco’s most popular districts, your Segway tour ends back at the starting point.

Amazing but be aware

So this was truly an amazing experience and I will do it again and I will recommend it to anyone but I just won't recommend it in San Francisco if it's your first time , the ups and downs are no joke and even though I was able to be in control my wife lost control on one of the down hills and the only way she could stop was by running into another segway person but thankfully no one got hurt , the segway employee was awesome her name was Katie and in control at all times , but I'll recommend them to place un experience people at front, the views were amazing.
