To explore it safely, each guest receives hands-on training with an instructor, test ride, skills practice, rider courtesy instruction, and review of the Golden Gate Park rules of the road and rider courtesy agreement. After a 30-35 minute training on how to safely operate the Segway, you'll explore the sights of Golden Gate Park for 2 hours. Ride your Segway for 8 miles (13 kilometers) through the eastern part of Golden Gate Park, which covers both the famous landmarks and many hidden and less-explored areas. Highlights on this tour include the De Young Museum, the California Academy of Sciences, the Music Concourse and Temple of Music, the Japanese Tea Garden, the Conservatory of Flowers, Lily Pond, Fern Grotto, and Storybook Cross, the Historic Carousel, San Francisco Botanical Gardens, the Lawn Bowling Courts, the National Aids Memorial, Shakespeare Garden, Stow Lake and Strawberry Hill, the Rose, Rhododendron and Dahlia Gardens, Redwood Grove and Pioneer Log Cabin, and many more hidden gems. The aim of this tour is to let guests enjoy riding an eco-friendly Segway, see more sights than they could cover on foot, and have lots of fun. An added benefit for the environment is fewer tour buses on the streets of the city each day. Please note: Customers will be required to sign the tour agreement and liability waiver.

Zach and Tricia were wonderful. Helped my family from ages 13 to 73 feel comfortable on the Segways. It was a great tour and if you think you can't do it, you can, it's easy and quite an adventure! We saw so much of the Golden Gate Park that we would never have seen on our own.

It was a great experience… Yohanes was awesome, took us off road in the Golden Gate Park which was my favorite. However the location was a bit hard to find for us…

Awesome tour with Johannes! He was very knowledgeable and fun. Also taught us some tricks to better control the Segway. All in all a great day!

Great way to explore such a big park especially with a knowledgeable entertaining trainer like Devin

I had no idea how much fun Segway are!! Our guide, Susan, was a lot of fun!
