“safe and great fun”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

My 13 year old son and I had an amazing morning on the segways last week. Never done it before and I must admit I was nervous ( he wasn't)!! Our patient and entertaining teacher, Mark ,was brilliant. Not only did he make it all fun, even the training, he was a great laugh when we were out on the streets of San Francisco. The overhead radios were a great bonus as h e talked to us constantly, making sure we were safe and knew what to do. I would highly recommend this company. Go for it!!

“Fun Experience well worth trying”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We took the Segway tour of Golden Gate Park with the Electric Tour Company and loved it. Our guide Brooke was fun, informative and Witty. The initial training is good and we felt very safe the entire time. You get to see loads of the park which would not be possible if you were simply walking around. Plus riding the segways is great fun. Thanks Brooke we highly recommend.

“Golden Gate Park”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

It was a blast! Learning to ride the Segways was fun, and the actual tour was so long that our legs got tired on the devices. I was worried that the training was going to shorten our actual tour, my wife and I are in our 60s and we had heard that some people have gotten hurt on Segways, but it never felt dangerous at all, felt very safe and if you can ride a bicycle and chew gum you will have no problem with a Segway. It was a great experience; several people commented as we rode past how much fun it looked like we were having and there was never a rushed feel at all to the tour. The park is huge and you would never be able to see all the great sights in the park on foot unless you knew where to go and took all day. Taking the Segway tour was a great decision.

If you have the time and the money take a Segway tour, You will be glad you did. It was great.

“Best Way to 'Do' Lombard Street”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

You do need to be an advanced Segway user to feel confident in tackling the hills and especially the twists and turns of Lombard Street. However, what an easy and fun way to tackle the San Francisco hills! You get regaled with history and fun storys along the way. Well worth doing, especially early in your visit to SF.

“Very cool experience”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

My wife and I did the night Chinatown, Little Italy and Embarcadero tour. What a blast! Neither of us had ever ridden one of these machines before but the pre-tour training was more than adequate and we felt very comfortable once the tour began.

AG was our tour guide and she was very informative about the city and very entertaining as well. Be sure to dress warm as the evenings in San Francisco can be rather chilly.

I really have nothing but good things to say about the experience. I would highly recommend this tour.
