“San Francisco From Ground Level Without The Sore Feet!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Mark our guide was very personable and funny. Along the way, he provided excellent commentary on San Francisco history, iconic locations and quirky facts that value-added to the experience. Seeing San Francisco from the Segway was fun, and so much better than from within a vehicle or atop of aching feet and heavy backpacks. Just learning to ride the Segway was fun and novel, and as the tour progressed, riding the Segway became 2nd nature and was a great and safe way to be part of vehicle & pedestrian traffic at the same time. My 5th visit to San Francisco, and the Segway tour actually gave me a new and fun perspective to one of my favourite US cities to visit when in the States! Highly recommend!

“Segway for Scardey Cats”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

On my bucket list...but I was a little afraid! Our guide (ORyan-awesome) customized the route to give us some flat land until I was comfortable. He said all of the right things to encourage me! Kids 15 and 12 loved it! Highlight of our trip to San Francisco!

“Unforgettable experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Massive thanks to Alan for showing us around San Fran in the best way possible. In his own words, Segway has the intimacy of walking with the ease and convenience of driving!

It was easy to get to grips with commandeering this majestic vehicle, including the vital Booty Stop (Bum stop, we're English). This allowed us to see all the best San Fran had to offer, including becoming seglebrities rollin' down Lombard street TWICE.

It was the highlight of our trip, and as official Segway Pilots, proved by our official doctorates and pin badges, we feel qualified to recommend this to anyone who wants a fun new experience of sightseeing.

“VIP/PRIVATE SEGWAY TOUR A MUST DO in San Francisco!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Put this company's private VIP tour on your BUCKET LIST and make it happen!! Best tour ever, and believe me, we are very picky. Choosing the VIP/Private tour with Electric Bike and Segway was the best part of the decision. Family of 3 here: mom/dad/16 yo son, have never set foot on a segway before and the only athletic one in the family is our son... but all 3 of us caught on quickly and had THE BEST time on this 3 hour tour >> a 3 hour tour << :) navigated by our captain, Brandon! What was so great? ..complete individual training before you take to the road, a watchful guide/instructor who helps you grow those seg-legs while keeping you safe, fantastic informative history of the city from Brandon, and even the 'inside skinny' on the history and notable commendations of local bars, restaurants and points of interest. He even led us to the doorway of an incredible hole in the wall fortune cookie shop where they handed us addicting samples of fortune cookie rounds, till hot, fresh out of the oven!! This innovative company has cutting edge customer service (even called us twice to remind us of our appt. and answer any questions) and they work to make the experience a life event in your journal of high points. As a private tour, we could spend as much time as we wanted at stops, had input on where we wanted to go and when we wanted to make a stop and we felt completely connected to our guide, plus they used a remote radio to talk to us, which makes it even more informative and easy to follow than those who have to gather the group and stop to speak! Booking this VIP option was well worth the investment since it covered the amount of area that we would normally cover in 2 separate group segway tours, plus it was bundled with tickets to the Alcatraz Day Tour. Now if you are a fairly last minute planner like us (only 2-3 weeks ahead) you will quickly discover that those Alcatraz tours are all sold out far, far in advance, so essentially this VIP tour was a steal of a deal since they had the ability to give us both for purchasing the VIP tour. Alcatraz was included in the segway tour price plus they handed us our printed tickets after the tour so there was no dealing with having to pick them up at the ferry. They booked our ferry to Alcatraz with an hour between to have enough time to grab some most excellent fresh Fish n Chips Brandon recommended to us a block from their Tour Center and then to make the 10 minute wharf walk to catch the Alcatraz tour ferry. By the way, we ate the best pizza in this city based on Brandon's recommendation, so this tour was a win-win from every angle. Talk about knowing his city...and now, so do we!! To top it off, he took about 30 photos of us and posted them online immediately after the tour so we could capture them for our memory book. This is a very well run customer care oriented company.. and their segways, helmets, reflective safety belts and radios were all in excellent cared-for condition. We honestly could not find a single thing negative about the experience. WE came and we conquered...even LOMBARD Street!! I would have never believed that was possible first time, but private coaching makes all the difference in the world! We will definitely do this again. You won't be disappointed either. Ask for Brandon. I heard Cary is great too!! Frankly, I'm sure they all are!

“Do it!! DO IT!!!! You won't regret it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

This is the most fun we had in a long time! I can't think of a better way to see the city. Our guide was Ellen and she was AWESOME!! To lead people through traffic requires a certain amount of finesse and Ellen ROCKED it. She had this cheerful waving thing, that would make anyone "part the seas" for her. I felt safe every moment and was having a blast every moment. All future vacations will include a Segway!

She even made shopping and restaurant suggestions that were spot on. We ended up spending $50 on cheese at the Cowgirl Creamery, it was SO good!
