FAQ

  • Expand/Collapse Are reservations required?

    Reservations are required for every tour we offer. All walk-up customers will be accommodated in the best possible manner based on guide and Segway availability. Our tours fill to capacity on a regular basis. For this reason we highly suggest making a reservation online or contacting us directly to make a reservation. We don't want to fill our tour and miss showing you around!

  • Expand/Collapse Where is the meeting point?

    All Segway tours begin at our office, located at 333 Jefferson St., Suite 123, San Francisco, CA 94133. We are located in a walkway that begins between the In N Out Burger and Sunglass Hut in the Anchorage Square Shopping Center.

  • Expand/Collapse Can minors come on tour alone?

    For safety reasons, minors (anyone under the age of 18) must be accompanied by an adult on the tour.

  • Expand/Collapse If I am pregnant can I join the tour?

    Unfortunately, due to the risk to both child and mother, pregnant women are not allowed to participate on our Segway Tours.

  • Expand/Collapse How big will my group be?

    Our tours operate in groups of 8.

  • Expand/Collapse What if my party is more than 8 people?

    If the party is larger than 8 the group will be split up for safety reasons. If you would like to keep a larger group together, please get in touch with us.

  • Expand/Collapse What time do I need to get there for my tour?

    Your tour will start promptly at the scheduled time, therefore please arrive 15 minutes prior to tour departure time in order to complete the necessary paperwork. Please be aware that we have multiple tours departing throughout the day, therefore if you arrive more than 30 minutes early we may still be working with other guests and not quite ready to welcome you properly. Each member of your party will be required to complete and sign a liability waiver form. Minors under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to complete their paperwork.

  • Expand/Collapse Will I need to put down a deposit?

    Yes. Insurance requires that City Segway Tours pre-authorize $500 on a credit card (one per party) on the day of the reservation. Please bring your MasterCard, Visa, or Amex with you for this requirement. Your card will not be charged unless there is damage caused to the Segway and card information will be deleted immediately upon completion of a damage-free tour.

  • Expand/Collapse Is this tour offered in any other languages? Or only English?

    Our tours are only offered in English at this time.

  • Expand/Collapse Do we go inside the museums and monuments?

    We do not enter the museums and monuments since the Segway are so much fun! However, we will give you a great orientation of the city so you'll know exactly where you will want to go after the tour.

  • Expand/Collapse Am I allowed to take pictures during the tour?

    Absolutely! However, we do recommend that you ask your guide to take your pictures so you can focus on riding and balancing on your Segway.

  • Expand/Collapse What is your cancellation policy?

    We are happy to offer full refunds for our Segway tour if the reservation is cancelled more than 72 hours (3 days) before the scheduled tour. We do not offer refunds for any reason once we are within the 72 hours of the scheduled tour.

  • Expand/Collapse Are tours cancelled in case of rain?

    No. Our tours operate rain or shine. We have ponchos available for purchase in our office for $1 and are happy to refund the price if it is unopened and unused.

  • Expand/Collapse I've never ridden a Segway before; will I be able to pick it up quickly?

    Your safety is always our highest priority; therefore, we begin each tour with a very thorough orientation of the Segway and its use before going out to enjoy the city!

  • Expand/Collapse Is there an age or weight limit?

    For your riding safety, guests must be at least 12 years of age and weigh at least 100 pounds and not in excess of 260 pounds. Here in San Francisco we have to stick very strictly to our minimum weight of 100 pounds, as anyone under that weight runs the risk of having the Segway respond improperly on the (small) hills encountered on tour.

  • Expand/Collapse Are the Segways safe for people with disabilities?

    We have had several people with disabilities join our tours. The necessary range of motion required to operate a Segway is similar to that of being able to transfer weight from one foot to another while walking. Also, riding a Segway does require the need to be able to stand for long periods of time. Each of our tours begins with a short safety video followed by time to practice in our training area across the street and instruction from your tour guide. We will practice on the Segways until everyone feels comfortable.

  • Expand/Collapse Can I rent a Segway without a guide?

    Unfortunately we do not rent our Segways out to individuals without a guide.

San Francisco Segway Tour Reviews

SAN FRANCISCO SEGWAY TOUR is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 311.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Part of the Trip!!! The 3 hour Segway tour was so worth the money. We were a little worried that they would be hard to maneuver, but they were very easy to get the hang of. Our guide, Chris, was awesome. He was patient, funny, and very helpful. We were able to see so much of the city that we never would have seen if we didn't take the tour. The Palace was amazing and beautiful. We stopped at Ghiradelli Square, saw an incredible view of the city, Alcatraz, and The Golden Gate Bridge. When we stopped at the various sites, Chris offered to take pictures of our group each time. I didn't want the tour to end. We would definitely recommend taking this tour while in the city. You won't regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome time! My wife and I took the shorter tour with Hugh, and loved it so much that we came back the next day and took the 3 hour tour with Greg! Both guides were amazing, fun guys. We had so much fun. My wife had broken BOTH of her ankles about a year ago, and is still having pain in one, so walking around the city was just not working. The Segways ended up being so easy to operate, and so fun to ride, and offered a freedom she hadn't had in awhile! Hugh and Greg were the icing on the top! So personable, encouraging, and very easy to get along with, and have fun with! Not to mention their knowledge of the city! Will DEFINITELY come back and do this again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Amazing. So glad we booked before we left the UK. The whole experience was professional from start to finish, with Grant answering my questions and queries via email to the tour by Josher. Josher was informative during the whole tour. He made it fun but safe. We seemed to go for miles, taking in Fishermans Wharf, the Muesum of Fine Arts and views of The Golden Gate Bridge. We even rode down Lombard Street! It's an experience I will never forget. Thank you Josher! Your tuition ment I went from a complete novice to being able to ride down Lombard Street. I would recommend City Segway Tours 100%. Professional, fun and safety conscious. Well done to you all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing about our visit to San Francisco We booked the 3 hour trip which was fab and great value and I reccomend everyone to try. You will spend a lot of time training, we spent about 45 mins but all was very necessary to feel confident when out on the roads. The tour was fantastic we covered so much ground and had the opportunity to see so many things we wouldn't have seen on foot. Our guide Joshua was very enthusiastic and knowledgable about things he made the trip very fun. I would recconrnd to anyone and it is very easy to do if you have faith you can do it the doubt is your own worse enemy! Highlight for us was getting to tackle Lombard street via Segway! Amazing Thanks so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Changing Experience My friends and I arrived from Miami, we searched for Segway Tours and instantly fell in love with City Segway. Although, we were running a little late, the company and its awesome staff accommodated our needs. Our guide, Mike, was patient and comforting. He alleviated my nerves and fear of heights (as we used the segways to climb up and down hills). Mike allowed for the group to venture up to Lombard Street (on Segway, which was awesome), we were able to comfortably take the Segway down the crooked street! The views were amazing!!! I would recommend this to another first timer!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Fun! We took this tour recently and opted for the 3 hour trip. Our guide was Ezra. She was really nice. We have done a lot of Segway tours now and this one by far was the most safety conscious. We watched a safety video and then they took us through more on how to ride a Segway. This was good. The trip itself took in some major parts of the city, including the harbour area. Personally, we would have liked to have learnt more about the history of San Francisco, but overall it was a good fun way to see parts of the city. It was very cold and windy the day we went, so be aware that you may need to wrap up warm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Fun Fun!!!!! This was an amazing experience. I recommend you do it at the beginning of your stay so you get to know the city! And definitely the 3 hour tour!! We met up with friends in San Francisco and they had booked this Segway tour. I was a little nervous but once you get the hang of it you don't want the tour to end. We had Aaron as a tour guide and he was fantastic. We loved him. He even took us down Lombard Street!!! It was easy!! He just builds you up bit by bit so nothing is difficult. Both me and my daughter wish we could have ridden them back to Santa Barbara!!! (might have taken a while but would have been fun)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing ever! I get a lot of friends and family visiting because I live near San Francisco. I book all of them on a segway tour with City Segway Tours, and all of them tell me that it's the most memorable experience they've ever had. I finally went on a tour myself to experience first-hand what my guests have been raving about, and they were absolutely right. My nieces and I thoroughly enjoyed our segway tour and couldn't wait to go again. Our guide, Will, was simply fantastic. I would ask for him next time we go again (and we will!). It was THAT fun! The staff at City Segway Tours San Francisco was really great too. Very very nice and accommodating. Even gave us restaurant recommendations.
