What You Can Expect

Old San Juan Segway Tour

Roam the colorful streets of Old San Juan!

Zip around Old San Juan by Segway as you explore its top attractions on this 2-hour small-group tour. Take in incredible views of San Juan Bay, Castillo San Felipe del Morro and San Cristobal Fort, among others, as you learn the fascinating history of this 500-year-old settlement first started by the Spanish Empire.

Meet your group at Pier 2 in Old San Juan, the tour’s departure point. Your meeting time will vary depending on the tour option you select, leaving at either 10am, 1pm or 4pm. First grab your helmet and get a safety lesson on using the two-wheeled Segway from your guide, and take some time to get familiar with starting and stopping. From there you’re ready to roll, heading out into the streets of this picturesque colonial district.

Move along the area’s cobblestone streets and colorful facades, stopping for photos and for a military history lesson from your guide. Soon you’ll reach Darsenas Square, which provides panoramic views of modern San Juan and its bay, and then see the remains of the San Juan Gate, where you'll hear about the crucial role the city’s harbor once played in maritime defense.

Continue your ride along the hilly streets, stopping to admire the imposing walls of La Muralla, a 3-mile (5 km) long and 140-foot (43 m) high barrier that once served as the linchpin of Old San Juan’s military defenses. Then take a quick 15-minute spin through the parade groups of the impressive San Felipe del Morro fort, a historic defense structure that juts out into San Juan Bay.

Your tour then moves past some additional monuments, including the Cathedral of San Juan Bautista, site of the remains of famous Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon, who searched for the Fountain of Youth, as well as the Ballaja infantry barracks and the cannon battery of La Perla, which was eventually turned into a slaughterhouse. After a few more attraction stops, your tour finishes back at the departure point.

This was a great tour!! Our guide was SO knowledgeable and informative!!!! And it was obvious that our safety was of utmost importance to him. As first timers we were a bit nervous, but with his patience, our training and practice went so smoothly that we were very comfortable with the operation of the Segway by the time we left his office. I would highly recommend this experience!

He gave us a lot of historical information with every tour stop. The tour was educational and entertaining. Best Segway tour we have taken. We have done many others.

We had a great time on the Old San Juan Segway Tour. Jose was a fantastic teacher and guide. For those who have never used a Segway, you can be confident that Jose will provide instruction and practice time before you go out on the tour. I am very unathletic and this is SOOOOO easy, even I can do it, and you can too! Additionally, my husband can't walk long distances, due to back pain, and this made him very mobile and was easy for him, as well. Then, there's the rich history and wonderful tour of a very beautiful city. We learned so much on this tour and really enjoyed ourselves! I highly recommend this tour to anyone!
