Itinerary Details

Operated by: San Francisco Electric Tour Company

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Electric Tour Company Segway Tours

Riding a Segway is intuitive, like bike-riding, but it takes a moment to learn how to operate it. You'll have 35-45 minutes of Segway training before beginning your tour, so that you become comfortable. You will practice until your group feels familiar with the Segway, then be ready to tour San Francisco! Once you’re rolling, you’ll follow your guide along the streets of San Francisco on a 3-hour tour, with the ability to cover more distance than on a typical walking tour and plenty of opportunities to stop for photos and questions along the way. You’ll have more time than on the regular public tour, and your guide will be able to adjust the itinerary and pace to your group’s interests and skills.
