Riding a Segway is intuitive, like bike-riding, but it takes a moment to learn how to operate it. You'll have 35-45 minutes of Segway training before beginning your tour, so that you become comfortable. You will practice until your group feels familiar with the Segway, then be ready to tour San Francisco! Once you’re rolling, you’ll follow your guide along the streets of San Francisco on a 3-hour tour, with the ability to cover more distance than on a typical walking tour and plenty of opportunities to stop for photos and questions along the way. You’ll have more time than on the regular public tour, and your guide will be able to adjust the itinerary and pace to your group’s interests and skills.

Viator has our tour labeled incorrectly. We did the Private Golden Gate Park Tour Our tour guide, Kyle aka Captain, was awesome! We did a tour for our family of 5 ages 13-45 and had a blast! Only one was experienced with Segways but everyone caught on quickly as Captain was very patient with us. Golden Gate Park was gorgeous!!! We learned a great deal and really enjoyed how beautiful the park was. Captain took immense pride in showing off his home. Our boys have asked to do another Segway tour wherever we journey next.
