A Segway tour in San Francisco gives you the ease of exploring the city on wheels while still enjoying being outside in the open air. Cover more ground than walking but won’t be trapped inside a tour bus, and the Segway is easy to use, which you’ll discover during a practice session with your guide.

When you’re comfortable on your Segway, your waterfront tour starts as you follow your guide past Fisherman’s Wharf and the city’s many sights along San Francisco Bay. Make plenty of stops to take photos and listen to commentary from your guide.

See attractions like Aquatic Park, the Dungeness crab stands, the turnaround for the city’s iconic cable cars, Ghirardelli Square, the National Maritime Museum and historical ships docked at Hyde Street Pier, and the USS Pampanito submarine. Pause to take in views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge, and learn about the city’s fishing industry and seafood processing.

After this introduction to one of San Francisco’s most popular districts, your Segway tour ends back at the starting point.

Friendly and fun times!

Great way to tour around SF is with a Segway! We didn’t have to deal with parking and can easily maneuver through a crowd without having to worry about our “bubble” space! Tour guide, Sam, was informative and funny which made the tour even more interesting! Owner, Brian, was just as excited as we were for our tour. All in all, this place is filled with friendly people who took the time to get to know the riders and made our tour feel save and even more connected. It wasn’t just a sale for a tour, it was an opportunity to experience SF with a Segway!

Susan was great, we had a wonderful time. They were just energy to have around and they new they’re way around town.

It’s really 1.5 hr tour

Really like the guides. Nice and cheery trip altogether. 1 hr training is overkill; even if you’re first timer on Segway, you do not need 1 hr intro. That was my only pet peeve - the wait and excessive intro (waisted time in my opinion). The rest was really pleasant.

Jack was an amazing tour guide and trainer on how to use the segway. He made the experience lots of fun as he really enjoys his job. The owner Brian was also there helping get us all ready to go. Highly highly recommend this and hope to be back with our adult kiddos.
