Segway San Francisco Electric Tour
Experience the beautiful sights of the San Francisco waterfront on your own Segway. A platform perched on two wheels, the Segway system has a patented gyroscope balancing system, enabling the standing rider to maneuver by tilting forward or backwards while using the steering control on the left handlebar to turn. Guided tours take you to great San Francisco attractions. This Segway tour is ideal for families, visitors and even residents of San Francisco to take in the beauty of the City by the Bay via one of the most unique and innovative modes of transportation around.
Below I outline my many gripes with the tour, but I think the most appalling thing was that when I approached the owner and manager about my dissatisfaction, he said he would investigate and get back to me in 24 hours. After no response for over a week I contacted them again. It was at that point the he begrudgingly refunded only a partial refund! It has been two weeks since then and still have not received a credit.
I have done many tours in many countries and I have even done segway tours, in fact I went on one with a competitor a week prior and loved it. I feel that the level of knowledge and customer service was simply not there.
Here is what you need to know about this tour
-Segways are really cool
-You should take a Segway tour, just not this one
-Mittens / gloves, jacket and a camera are a good idea
-If you are at the back of the line, you will get honked at by cars…allot
-if your in the back you will get cursed at by people in cars….allot
-at the end, the guide will have everyone circle up and flat out say “a 15%-20% tip is expected”
-the management will deny that they say “expect” and that they don’t press the tips
-they engineer it so you feel / look like a total shmuck if you don’t tip
-the training session is poorly done and other companies do it better and make you feel more comfortable
My friend and I did the Segway tour in San Francisco. It was so much fun. It is very easy to ride the Segways, and your tour guide narrates the tour from a two way radio. The tour is a bit spendy, but it is truly a unique experience, and worth the money. Try it. You will have a great time.
A couple of years ago I did a segway ride in Paris (what a hoot that was, riding all over the streets of Paree), so when I was planning a weekend trip with my adult daughter in San Francisco, I found this segway tour. It was SO fun. Probably the highlight of the weekend. I know it was for my daughter.
After spending the 45 minutes or so with the training (which is really needed, by the way) the tour isn't long enough (just my opinion, since I enjoy riding on the segway so much). Am sure they must be careful where they lead a tour of people on segways, but I wished it had lasted another 30 minutes or so. Am sure they've worked this out very carefully, though (time vs. cost). But, I'd highly recommend it to anyone. There is some agility required, though, so if you have any problems with balance, it might not be advisable.
The Segway tour is worth every penny of the ticket price. I was so nervous, but it was way easier than I ever dreamed and the tour gives you a whole new perspective of the city. The staff is so nice and helpful and they watch after you so nothing will go wrong. The ride was our favorite memory of our vacation. We can't wait to take the advanced tour!!!!
We had so much fun, and it was very easy to learn how to ride a segway. It was a very convenient way to get around and see so much in a couple of hours. The 3 hours went by super fast. I would definitely recommend it. The guides were funny and awesome, Alex and Jeff. The only downside was that the walky-talkies on the segways could not be heard very clearly, but I'd still recommend the trip.
My wife and I went to Frisco on Valentine's weekend. We took the Segway tour, and did the Muir Woods and Saucelito combination, scheduled for 2/14/08. On our first day, we panicked, since when we arrived at the Beach Street location, there was no bus ANYWHERE for the Muir Woods tour. We had to hike around the city for awhile to figure out what went on. When we went to the headquarters, we ran into Alfredo, who told us that someone forgot to CONFIRM our Muir Woods/Saucelito tour. (UUGH!! :( ) He rescheduled it for Saturday, 2/16/08. That was the only inconvenience/dislike of the tour.
Loved riding the Segway around the Fisherman's wharf area. Our tour guide (I want to say Susan) really knew her SF history. We saw some really beautiful parts of frisco.
Then on Saturday, we did the Muir woods. If you like the outdoors, you should LOVE muir woods. Big trees, peaceful streams, etc. Not to mention they filmed parts of Return of the Jedi near the redwoods. (I was picturing the Ewok's coming out of their hiding places the whole time I was there. )
Very great tourist attraction. If you are healthy enough to ride a Segway and are in the frisco area, I would definitely recommend this tour. It is well worth it.
When we came face to face w/ the Segways we had doubts that we could actually drive these things.We liked the fact that we were actually trained to drive them, and toured the Fisherman's wharf area of SF. We went around the tourist areas, some not so touristy, & the Palace of fine arts. The tour lasted several hours, but seemed to pass very quickly. Good tour & much fun.
This is a great way for the family to see SF. The Segways are fun and easy to ride. My 12 year daughter wanted to keep going after the 2 1/2 hour tour! Our guide Karen was very knowledgeable of the history and Wharf area and kept us entertained as well.
This is a great change of pace from the boring bus tours.
You should definitely do the Segway Tour in SF.
