“Fan-bloody-tastic!!!!”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

Where do i begin...we, with our two teenagers, did the beginners segway tour (3hours). What a fantastic way to see San Francisco!! It took us to Alcatraz, the wharf area, a view of the Golden Gate Bridge and a myriad of other nooks and crannies! Our tour guide, Kristian, was not only informed beyond compare, but SO much fun. We loved her (and the tour) so much we immediately booked the advanced tour which took us up and down hills (including Lombard Street), down little lane ways, to Coit Tower, and a view of the docks. So much of the history was explained, from the wonderful story of Lillie Hitchcock Coit, to the fascinating revelation of the reclaimed land in the Marina district.
The segways themselves were easy to manipulate, and the training was more than adequate. I could not recommend this company and their tours more highly. DO IT!! You won't regret it :)

“Best Way to Tour San Francisco”
Reviewed 6 December 2011

City Segway is a top class operations. I've taken tours with them in Atlanta, Georgia and multiple times in Washington, DC. The service is always the same: excellent tour guides, well maintained equipment and interesting tours.

Having lived in San Francisco for 10 years, I fully understand the hassles of getting around the city and knew a Segway would allow me to again visit some of my favorite tourist spots. The equipment is extremely easy to operate. Since my friend and I (we are both 65 years old) have toured on Segways a half dozen times this past years, we were sure we could handle the flat areas of the city but not so confident about the hills. With outstanding guidance and operating tips from our guide, Johannes, we quickly mastered operating the machines up and down steep San Francisco hills including the Russian Hill area and Lombard Street's twisting extremely steep decline.

Our guide was fantastic, full of insight and information about the city and it's history that I never learned in the 10 years living there. We toured in areas I'd seen but weren't willing to walk the long distances to see up close. The views from the spots Johannes shared with us were spectacular.

I highly recommend City Segway to all, young and old.

“What a hoot! You have to do this!”
Reviewed 2 December 2011

From time of friendly check in through the not at all daunting training session and then the fun tour with Johannes, we had the best of times with our first Segway experience and hopefully the first of many. The tour was interesting and I'm not sure if I enjoyed the sights - particularly the neighbourhoods and down around the wharfs and marina - or just being on a Segway more, but either way I fully recommending adding this tour to your San Francisco experience.
