“Gaslamp Segway Tour - The highlight of our holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

We booked the Gaslamp district Segway tour very last minute and Segway PB managed to fit us in that afternoon. We met George Clarke at Balboa Park and he gave those that hadn't ridden before a brilliant introduction to get them going. George is such a character, with great stories both of the city and sightes but also of his life. Our "2.5 hour" tour was certainly much longer and George entertained and fascinated us throughout the whole afternoon until dusk forced George to bring things to a close. If you want to see the city of San Diego, then Segways are a good way to do it, and I can think of no better person to guide you around than George.

In two weeks of travelling around Arizona, Nevada and Southern California, this tour was definitely the highlight.

“Fascinating Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

My wife and I are seniors who were trying Segways for the first time on this vacation trip. The instruction we received put us at ease from the outset. The tour around the Mission Beach area was fun, and informative. Our instructor and guide, Joanne, was attentive and a pleasure to tour with. Apart from being a fun experience, this tour was well worth the price. A great way to see part of a beautiful city.

“Amazing and comprehensive Segway tour with George Clark as guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

Our tour was awesome. Started with a tour of Balboa Park, then rode Segways thru downtown stopping at many attractions, to the Harbor area, and ending in Little Italy. George is extremely knowledgeable of San Deigo and the surrounding area. He had a microphone headset and we all had headphones which he used to communicate with us during the tour. George was very accommodating in what we wanted to see, very patient with picture taking, and great about answering all of our questions. Tour lasted over three hours and was very much worth the price...STRONGLY ADVISE THIS TOUR. San Diego was our fourth Segway tour, and by far the best.

“An excellent way to see the whole beach area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013 via mobile

This trip took us on a 17 mile tour of the the whole Bay Area. Sounds a long way but was very pleasurable, easy and is informative way to see San Diego beach.

Instruction was first class and the segways are almost too easy to ride.

These people are super friendly, put you at ease on the machine, run the trip at your own pace and we couldn't have enjoyed it more.

Suitable for beginners and more competent riders alike, we cannot recommend it enough.

Just book it, you'll love it.

“Just excellent - from start to finish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

Today my girlfriend and I decided to rent two segways and explore San Diego in a very fun way. I have been on a Segway before but the introduction and the learning process before the ride was never as good as I experienced it today.

First of all, the communication with Segway of Pacific Beach was perfect. I wrote an E-Mail in the morning and asked about the rental and I got an answer within thirty minutes. As I mentioned, the introduction on how to ride the Segway was just amazing. In detail, we were shown everything and afterwards were given a map of the area with routes to take that were very Segway friendly.

Of course, you can take a guided tour, we decided to go on our own.

I highly recommend this place if you are looking for something fun to do.
