This was great! I booked it for my husband's birthday so he could go with his friend but I went instead. Was petrified at first, but our guide, KATY, was amazing with me. Very patient and kept me right behind her. I was extremely nervous especially since I thought this was going to be along the waterfront, but we rode right out into traffic and rode through the streets! Riding a segway wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be and by the time we finished the tour, I was a little more confident than when I started. Thanks again, KATY!!!!! and Not Your Momma!!!!

I've only activated my Viator account now! Only three and a half years later am I sharing my thoughts. This was a fantastic tour! Great for first timers like myself, took a little time getting used to but becomes second nature very quickly. Great fun!

Outstanding, informative and fun way to see the sites in the Warf and North Beach area without having to walk up and down the hills. Funny how we became one of the sites for the walkers. Our guide was great.

We loved the Segway tour! It was so much fun. Devon and Raoul were our guides and did an excellent job. Devon is very knowledgeable about the city--and funny too! I would recommend this activity to everyone! We are over 65--and it was safe and easy to learn. Donna and Bud

We really enjoyed our segway tour with Captain Kyle. He was funny, engaging and full of info about SF history and landmarks. The tour goes through Fishermans Wharf and North Beach, (not the entirety of the waterfront) which was super interesting but not exactly what we expected, but we loved it!
