The Segway tour was fantastic! At first, the Segway seemed a little intimidating (during the tutorial), but it was very easy to navigate once the tour started, a very quick learning curve. Mariela, the tour guide, was friendly and very accommodating. Ultimately, the people are what make the difference between a good tour and a bad one, and this one was excellent. Highly recommend.

Our guide was experience about the park and I felt comfortable following behind him. I have now done 6 Segway rides and enjoyed everyone of them from Portland, Fisherman‘s wharf and Golden Gate park. All were excellent!

One of the best parts of our SF trip. My 12 year old and I had never ridden before and these guys made it easy and fun. Adam is the man, he is hilarious and gave such a good tour.

So much fun! Our guide Jack was fantastic, knowledgeable and funny would highly recommend this tour.

Was a great experience. Saw lots of San Francisco. Our guide Adam was excellent
