San Francisco Segway Tours - Electric Tour Company , 757 Beach St, San Francisco, CA 94109, USA

Tour office is across the street from the Hyde and Powell Streets Cable Car turn-around. A Wells Fargo Bank ATM (Red Sign) is at the entrance to the driveway of the training area. You MUST arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled tour time or risk forfeiture.

6:00 PM
This activity will end right where it started.
Don’t miss this opportunity to experience San Francisco on two wheels after dark. You’ll be able to see more than you would on a walking tour while still enjoying the crisp evening air.

Start on Beach Street, where you’ll meet your guide and spend about 40 minutes learning and practicing how to operate your Segway and radio device, which allows you to listen to your guide’s narration while you zoom through the city. Then take off toward North Beach, a neighborhood also known as San Francisco’s Little Italy.

Glide past busy Italian restaurants that line the charming streets of this district, and see landmarks like Saints Peter and Paul Church and Washington Square Park while your guide tells you about the Beat poets, artists and others who came here as part of the counterculture movement decades ago.

Then head to adjacent Chinatown, a historical neighborhood where streets are dotted with lanterns, dim sum restaurants, small alleys and souvenir shops, as well as decorations in honor of holidays like Chinese New Year, depending on the date of your tour. From here, make your way to the Embarcadero to admire the illuminated Bay Bridge from the waterfront, and cruise by the Ferry Building as you head to Fisherman’s Wharf.

Look out at Alcatraz Island and enjoy views of historical piers and ships before your Segway tour ends back at the starting point. Throughout the tour, you’ll make plenty of stops to take photos and listen to commentary from your guide.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Fisherman's Wharf
Join a troupe of Segway riders on Beach Street, along Fisherman’s Wharf, to gear up for your evening ride with a 20-25-minute safety orientation. Along with a helmet and safety vest, you’ll get hooked up with a radio device so you don’t miss any of your guide’s commentary along the way. Once you feel comfortable on your two-wheeler, hit the streets to see Chinatown, North Beach, Fisherman’s Wharf and the Embarcadero lit up at night. It’s a great way to see the city in a new light!
Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Pass By:  
North Beach
Depart from Beach Street to head up to North Beach, or what locals consider the city’s Little Italy. The streets are flanked by bustling Italian restaurants, with the scent of authentic warm dishes wafting from the doorways.

Washington Square
Imagine the Beat poets and artists who once roamed the neighborhood as your guide shares history about the counterculture movement at Washington Square Park by Saints Peter and Paul Church.

Chinatown
Cruise over to nearby Chinatown, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods. Along the lantern-lit streets, peer into dim sum houses, admire temples and appreciate souvenirs that dangle from windows and spill over display tables. If you visit in mid-winter, expect to see festive decorations in honor of the Chinese New Year.
Pass By:  
San Francisco Bay Bridge
From Chinatown, head east toward the waterfront to take in the Bay Bridge, which appears to be dressed in tinsel; it’s actually a light sculpture known as Bay Lights.
Pass By:

Not only was the weather perfect, but our small group of four was led by a wonderful tour guide, AG. AG was knowledgeable of the areas history, which made it fun to hear about the lesser known facts of SF. Not only did she tell us about he history and culture of the neighborhoods, she let us in on a few good places to eat, too. This was my second tour and the two were different, which I liked a lot.

The staff and guides were great and had us all up and running within about 20 minutes. I think next time i would opt for the park tour as the traffic was so bad during parts of the tour we ended up spending a lot of time stuck in one place.

What a great time, and a great way to see the city. Carlos, our tour guy, was fun, informative and lead us on an adventure seeing parts of the city we would never had seen on our own. The portion of the tour in Chinatown was highlight of the evening. I highly recommend this tour. Not to mention, the Segway is a blast to use. We can't wait to try another Segway tour.

If you like fun activity and want to have a good time, you have to try this. I was a bit nervous at first because I'm not good with keeping balance but the crash course at the begging of the tour helped a lot. The company is very careful with our safety. Tyler, our guide, is so patient and calm and just coooool! Thanks a for good time, Tyler the extraordinary tour guide :P

We were a little nervous trying Segway for the first time on the roads of San Francisco at night but the tour from start to finish was excellent. We had Aaron as our tour guide who was a genuinely nice and friendly guy who didn't seem as though he was doing it for the tips. The training at the start was really helpful and gave you confidence before you set off. After we started to explore the streets Aaron was extremely knowledgable about the city and gave a lot of information throughout the evening and was happy to take photos of everyone. It was a stand out tour and one of the best we did on our multi city trip to the USA. The Segways were excellent and I'd like to get my own now! I like the way Aaron never mentioned anything about tips and there were no signs about it like many of the other tours we went on, this was a nice touch and he deserves tipping highly for his excellent customer care and service. Highly recommended.

Melody L
, Jun 2015
This was more fun than I could have imagined. I was worried that I would feel awkward on the segway, but it was a very natural feeling kind of like skiing, I'm told. The guide was great and the training was just right. We learned a lot and it was just so amazing being able to do that in the city at night. Be warned that you are going to be on your feet keeping balance and everything for about 3 hours, so do your stretches before you go! We can't wait to go back and do all of the rest of their tours. For a family of 4, I gulped a little bit when I paid for us all, but it was WELL worth the price!!!

Tayalma
, Jan 2015
I liked our guide and the place was really good with safety and making sure we were all prepared but the tour itself was not very interesting or engaging. You advertised lantern lit lights of Chinatown...but they are not lit up...we did not stop for photos anywhere along the tour although you advertised photos stops. You advertised stops at Hyde Street and a chance to check out the light installation that makes the bay bridge glitter...we never went near the Bay Bridge. We never saw Alcatraz lit up at night. We did not end our tour on a sweet note at Ghiradelli square.
