Enjoy a 3-hour guided Segway tour of San Francisco and see many of the city’s major attractions from the back of a unique, self-balancing vehicle. Following a brief orientation of how to use the transport mode of the future, glide serenely down to the colorful waterfront of Fisherman's Wharf.

    Reviewed by Keith from Athens, United States on August 9th, 2014 I only wish the tour would have been longer, so that we could have seen more of the city.

  • Rating: 5 “GREAT fun - would recommend to anyone!!”

    Reviewed by Nina from bidborough, tunbridge wells, United Kingdom on October 16th, 2012 We visited San Francisco in August 2012 and were recommended to book a segway tour in advance which we did. This was probably one of the highlights of our stay in the US. My husband, myself and my son and daughter all had a three hour tour and enjoyed every minute of it. We saw parts of the city which we would never have seen and heard lots of interesting things about San Francisco. It was so funny - we became a tourist attraction with people taking photos of us! All the guides at City Segway seem to be very friendly and helpful and they really make the whole experience fun. When I visit another city this will be the first thing I look up and book if its available - I'm hooked!!

    Reviewed by Tobias from Aachen, Germany on October 3rd, 2012 You get a short introduction to the Segway, then you travel along the bay and see the most important tourist attractions; Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz…
    At the start you really have to concentrate on the riding, but later you can enjoy the city too.
    Riding a Segway is an experience on its own!!! Highly recommended!!!

  • Rating: 5 “Wow, the experience exceeded our expectations by 10!”

    Reviewed by Joseph from North Las Vegas, United States on July 7th, 2012 We felt welcome and entertained the entire time. The training was complete and fun. My wife was afraid that she would not be able to ride the Segway, but at the end she was a Pro. Seeing the wharf with our group and guide is best way to see all the sites and get some great insight on all the sights. We will do it again and again! This is a must do for any trip to the wharf.

  • Rating: 5 “Best way to see the sights!”

    Reviewed by Margie from Sylvania, United States on June 24th, 2012 This is the second time that we have signed up to take the City Segway Tour, and looked so forward to it on this trip. The first time was in Washington DC, this time was in San Francisco. Our guide was fluent in on how to use the segway, all of the safety measures, and the routes to take. I was just a little disappointed in the lack of "commentary" on our tour, but he did have answers when questions were asked.
    Our goal is to hit every city that has City Segway Tours, and tour with them!

  • Rating: 5 “The tour was great for the whole family!”

    Reviewed by Andrea from Slippery Rock, United States on June 22nd, 2012 We had a great time. We were all nervous about riding the Segway, but it was really easy to learn. Our guide was very very knowledgeable. We even revisited some of the areas she recommended the next day. It's a GREAT family outing!

  • Rating: 4 “Had a great time on our Segway tour!”

    Reviewed by Candace from Roswell, United States on June 18th, 2012 My family took a Segway tour in San Francisco. We had never ridden one before and were a little apprehensive, but it was quite easy once we got the hang of it. We had been to San Francisco before, so the things we saw on the tour were not new for us. We went just for the experience of riding on a Segway to make it more interesting for our teenage son. After a short lesson and practice, we were on the streets of San Francisco. Our guide seemed to know her way around pretty well and gave us a little history of some of the areas we saw, and by the end of our tour, she had us going up and down the hills! It was a little chilly once the sun went down, but they had gloves and jackets to keep us warm! We had a great time!
