Explore San Francisco’s historic waterfront from the back of a self-balancing, eco-friendly Segway on this 2.5-hour tour, including a 45-50 minute training session on how to safely operate your vehicle. Your fully narrated route features spectacular views of San Francisco Bay, including Fish Alley, Fisherman's Chapel, the World War II Liberty Ship, and Submarine Pampanito.

We had a great time on our segway tour, it is such a great way to explore the wharf and Northpoint neighborhood. Our guide had a good sense of humor and lots of fun facts to share. Really a unique, fun, and safe way to tour San Franciso. Also a great way to get the otherwise-bored-with-everything-teenagers engaged in sightseeing :)

So much fun with Kevin as our tour guide!

This was our first segway tour! Kevin was helpful, informative and humorous! We were able to see so much in a time window that was perfect for us. There was time to take a short break while on the tour to enjoy a quick slice of pizza as well! Kevin made the experience very fun and we will definitely be taking another segway tour in the future!

Wonderful tour that I recommend to anyone wanting to see San Francisco. Friendly, knowledgeable staff trained the group quickly and we were off to see the town. Segway is definitely the way to see this hilly town. Our guide, Jessada, was extremely knowledgeable. I felt like he was sharing his town, not a tour script. The use of the wireless microphone and headset was perfect because the whole group got to share the whole tour even when distance and safety would have made it hard or impossible to hear what the guide was saying. We traveled further than a walking tour and got to connect better with the city than a bus tour. It was a wonderful experience for my first time on a Segway.
