Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.
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

Cruise over to nearby Chinatown, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods.

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.
