“Fun...and easy”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

Four of us rented segways from Segway SF Bay on a sunny, pleasant Friday afternoon. We picked this company because we all knew how to ride and didn't want to do a tour, didn't want to be confined to following a group around, and this place allows you to rent the segway and go off on your own. It was GREAT! Charlie checked us in, showed us how to operate the segways, let us pick out a helmet and gloves, gave us a brief rundown on how/where to ride and what to avoid and we were on our way. We buzzed around Golden Gate Park, had a quick lunch at the hotdog stand near the DeYoung and then made our way to Ocean Beach and up to the Cliff House for a pop. Buzzed back from the beach to Charlie's place in a matter of minutes just outside the park on Lincoln.Our two hours went by so quickly we called to extend a bit - so much fun - one of the best days ever in SF. Charlie was very accomodating, easy going - even offered to feed the parking meter for us when we went beyond the original two hours we put on it. The best part: we were on our own, free to go where we pleased. We will def do this again soon!!

“What a fun way to see the park....”
Reviewed 27 September 2013 via mobile

We decided to use this Segway company because you decided what to see and how quickly or slowly you wanted to do it. It is a do it yourself tour, no pressure of being with a group and having to be on someone else's clock! We chose 2 hours which was a good time frame, had a lesson and were on our way. If we wanted to extend our time all we had to do was call them and let them know, how easy was that? We headed toward the beach, at first I was hesitant to get up to speed but once you gave the hang of it, using the Segway is a breeze. The group that left before us had young teens and the took to it quickly, I would recommend this for persons of all ages! The sight in the park were beautiful. If your hungry head to the boat house. The food is fairly priced and very yummy! These segways were very reasonably priced..... We has so much fun exploring that we are thinking of stopping back for a second day!

“Segways on your own”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

My son and I happily went off on a 1 1/12 hour tour of Golden Gate Park, and out to the coast on our own, thanks to Segway SF Bay. There's really no need to go on a group tour when you can explore on your own, and at your own pace. And with quick, and thorough training, helmets, gloves and a map, you're off! It was our first time on a segway, and it's very easy to learn.

“Thank you Charlie!”
Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

We were so glad we rented Segways rather than doing a tour. It was great being out on our own. Charlie was a great teacher. It only took a few minutes for us to learn (mom and dad age 46 and daughters age 13 and 16.). Before we knew it we were cruising through the park. We loved zipping up the hill past the Cliff House. Definitely do this!

“More interested in riding than in narration? Rent here.”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

My daughters and I felt so superior blasting by the Segway tours that were crawling along in two lines, listening to their guide. Charlie is fantastically laid-back, and is a great teacher. He lent us warm gear and helmets, gave us suggestions and maps, and sent us out the door. We had 2.5 hours of FUN! Wouldn't it be fun to rent Segways for your entire stay and skip the cable car lines?
