What To Expect

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.

Super fun way to see the city
Mike_P, Jan 2023
Great, funny tour guide who really shared some fun facts about the history of the city. Riding the Segways was a total blast. Well worth it.!! we really wanted to also do the tour of Golden Gate Park, but unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate. Next time.
Great segway ride
Jaye_F, Nov 2022
Our guide Adam was amazing, we came, we explored, we had a blast! We would certainly recommend to anyone interested in both seeing San Fran in a unique way as well as just enjoying riding the segways!
Adam's Segways Rock 'n' Roll!!
Ulla_W, Oct 2022
What a great fun way to explore San Francisco! None of us had been on a Segway before, yet the training part of the tour provided us with enough practice to confidently maneuver the streets. Adam, our tour guide and Segway pro, did not only train us expertly and keep us safe in traffic, but showed us San Francisco from this unique wheeled perspective with passion and lots of humor. Adam was the most amazing tour guide - super-entertaining, extremely knowledgeable, very helpful, full of fun, and according to my teenage sons 'a really cool, fun, laid back guy', '10 out of 10'. He made everyone feel comfortable and safe, answered every question, and we might even go for another spin with him! I highly recommend this tour !👌👌👍👍
Book this tour! You won’t be disappointed
Monica_A, Oct 2022
Adam was informative, flexible, patient and funny while he led us expertly through the mean streets of San Francisco. Couldn’t have asked for a better tour.
Outstanding Segway Tour
Lynne_B, Aug 2022
The tour was fabulous! Jack, our guide, made sure we knew how to ride the Segways and where we were going. He was very informative and entertaining and he told us so much about the history of San Francisco.
Great afternoon for adults and teenagers
Simon_H, Jul 2022
A fantastic couple of hours whizzing round the Bay Area - as two adults and two teenagers we all enjoyed the experience. Adam our guide was great, full of interesting facts, passionate and (rightly) proud of his city, and making us laugh the whole way. The segways were easy to drive and we all felt comfortable mixing in amongst traffic and pedestrians. Would really recommend this. Nice touch that the guide took photos of us on the way round at the different landmarks so that we could just concentrate on the views.
Unbelievable tour
Daniel_G, Jul 2022
Tour was great . Our group leader Adam was so knowledgeable and fun everyone wants to do the tour again
Our experience
Jean_K, Jul 2022
TK was terrific. Very personable, funny and knowledgeable. We had a great time. It was a great way to see the city because we got around so quickly. Highly recommend.
Amazing experience all around!
Sabine_F, Jul 2022
We have never ridden segways and were a little concerned. Jack was a fantastic coach and tour guide! He put us at ease and taught us how to confidently ride the segway. His sense of humor, knowledge of the area and guiduing us through traffic without any stress made him my favorite guide of all time! The headquarters of the excursion is an amazing alley way full of colorful murals and umbrellas. Great photo opps! Talented artists put a lot of time into making this area special. It was fun and so much more interesting to see San Francisco from a segway rather than a bus. The weather was great and we were able to see much more than I expected. Bring a jacket! It can get pretty breezy zipping around the city. Ten out of ten! Highly recommended.
Best way to tour SF
Khalid_D, Jun 2022
We had never used a Segway before and we were apprehensive. However, Adam made it so easy for us with his training and sense of humor! We embarked on a fun-filled adventure on the streets of San Francisco near Fisherman’s Wharf, COIT tower , Telegraph Hill, North beach.. We returned safely and full of great memories of a beautiful city. We will do it again!
Fun family day

We had a blast during this tour. Our tour TK was amazing. He was fun, engaging, kept us safe and gave us some cool facts about the history of the town. He made our day so much fun! The whole crew at this location was so amazing to deal with. Highly recommended!
Fantastic from start to finish
Vinaykumar_S, Jun 2022
I can’t believe how fun it was and our tour guide was awesome who mixed humor and fun facts about the city.
Great way to start in San Francisco
Kerri_H, Jun 2022
We did this on the first day in San Francisco. It was a fun way to get around. We had an amazing tour guide called Jack who was fun, friendly and really knowledgeable. He had us doing synchronised segwaying much to the amusement of us and the general public. The location to collect the Segway was really cool with lots of street art to take photos with. Great way to start our Honeymoon
A must do!!!!
Lejla_M, Jun 2022
We loved it! Over 2 hours of seeing so much of the city. Jack was a phenomenal guide, very knowledgeable and super fun!! We laughed the whole time. Brian, the owner, was there to greet us and made sure everyone was ready to go. Highly recommend, worth every single penny!!
Fun, cool ride!
Dan_G, May 2022
We had an amazing time with Jack as our guide. This tour is fun, exciting and the best way to go around San Francisco. Amazing experience!!!
Fun Fun Fun!!
Lolita_H, Apr 2022
Jack was a great tour guide! The quick training was the most thorough I have had with any seg way tour. He told us some rich history about San Francisco and made it fun and interesting. I would recommend this tour! Our twirl was amazing…wish I could upload my video 😂😂
Scary on the hills but very well led
Laura_D, Apr 2022
Very well organised and led. They did good checks on riding skills before going which is good as it’s a bit nerve wracking on San Franciscan hills. We had sensible stop points to stretch legs and see some great views. Really enjoyed it
how i learned the emergency "booty" stop and lived to tell about it
James_C, Mar 2022
The WHOLE experience was good...even the training. But the guide, TK the Destroyer, was great. He kept us entertained, he bailed us out when made mistakes, he was great. I scared the Sh** out of him at the end of the ride. The segway got away from me (operator error?) but he bailed me out. I'd even do that again, training and all.
Perfect to see San Fran without walking.
Chas_I, Jan 2022
This was a blast. Wasn’t our first time on segways, so we had a little experience. Seen a lot of amazing scenery. Tour operatOr was a blast, super cool. Would definitely do it again.
Everything about this...
Christopher_T, Dec 2021
Everything about this tour was great! The training to ride the segway was awesome, they really made you feel comfortable. The tour guide was very informative and fully of energy. Adam was super patient with the group and provided a lot of information about San Francisco. Definitely recommend this tour. We’ll worth the money.
