A very well organised tour and a great guide who is very well informed as well as making sure the participants are safe and OK at all times. One of the best ways to cover many sights of the city in 2 hours and get to go down Lombard Street without queueing! Highly recommended.

We ha ve been on Segway tours in many different cities. We were told if you are in San Francisco, you must do it. The hills in San Francisco makes it a truly amazing experience. Also going down Lombard Street is one thing that should not be missed. Our Tour guide Nic was also very informative and was also very funny as she guided us along. It is one tour that I will never forget.

What a great ride! Although the tour operator requires an "advanced" Segway rider, the device really does most of the work for you. And what a great tour! San Francisco is always beautiful, even at a 15% grade downhill. Nic, our tour guide, was WONDERFUL! And she can actually sing relatively well! It was a terrific way to spend some quality time in the City. Well worth it!
