From the moment we arrived at our tour, Cass our guide was fantastic she was informative, knowledgeable. Not only did she make us feel at ease with the difficulty of advanced Segway she was highly entertaining. Would recommend a tour of San Francisco with Cass as the guide. Our only mistake was when we finished the tour we were so on a high we forgot to tip Cass. So sorry Cass you deserve more!!

What an amazing experience to Segway around the Golden Gate Park with our guide Kelly, not only sharing his love and knowledge of the Park today, but it’s history and it’s influence on the history of San Francisco itself, always attending to our safety and our comfort as we visited all the features of the park and had time to see the Pacific Ocean. Thoroughly recommended.

Segways are a great way to go sightseeing. Thoroughly enjoyed our trip with Susan/John who had lots of great stories and observations. Made us feel very comfortable travelling on the streets of SF and has a good sense of humour. Upgraded anxiety to excitement!

Wonderful experience. First time riding a Segway but after a couple of wobbles during the orientation our group all found it easy to ride them; if a group of 70 year olds can handle them anyone probably can. Devin our guide was excellent; chatty, informative but safety conscious. The tour is a good way to explore the park, even though we live in the Bay Area we got to see parts of the park we hadn't previously explored. Highly recommend.
