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.

A great tour. We were a small group of 6 people. The instructional/safety training was excellent. We were each given an earpiece and a receiver that would be used to receive instructions and tour information. After Jose had fitted us with helmets and was satisfied that all of us were comfortable with the Segways, we set out. We left the office at the pier and went through the streets of Old San Juan toward the El Morro Fort. We stopped at various places where Jose gave us historical information about each site. The stops also enabled us to get off the Segway for a few minutes and take pictures if we chose. We toured the inside and outside of the fort, again with more information and picture taking opportunities. Before we left, Jose took pictures of anyone who wanted against a beautiful backdrop. Jose has a tremendous depth of knowledge about San Juan and Puerto Rico, but it is not just facts that he was reciting to us. He was telling us a story about things that happened and how they fit with other events in history. He also brought up how climate or geography had a part in the outcome. I have taken many tours in many places, but he made it all make sense in a way that I have never seen before. He is to be commended. I would do this again!

This was a great tour. Our guide did an excellent job training riders to use the segway and then did an outstanding job leading the tour thru old San Juan and El Morro fort explaining the history at each stop. This tour is well worth it if you are not afraid to try the Segway.

What an amazing way to see old San Juan! This was my family and #39;s first time riding segways and we will definitely be touring this way from now on. Had we just done the walking tour we would have been too hot and tired to really enjoy the sites. Our guide Jorge was extremely personable and knowledgable.

Great training of Segway for new riders, Allowed us to see parts of Old San Juan in a short amount of time and cover as much area as possible. A good way to maneuver the hilly streets. While most of the ride was along the wall path, this tour still allowed us to see many things in Old San Juan including one of the forts.

Our tour guide was FANTASTIC.!!!! We had such a blast and fun time with this 2 hour tour. There was no way I could have covered this much ground walking because I have Siatica back nerve issues. My wife still talks about this experience everyday.

The only negative.... the business needs a sign out on the street so new comers like ourselves can find it easily. It's only 500 feet from the cruise ship pier but we walked right by it several times.
