Looking for a way to see San Francisco’s amazing sights without the major workout of walking up, down and around the city’s steep, near vertical streets? See it easily and see more of it on a guided Segway tour. For a really fun and interesting time, pick the one that takes you to the places you came to see – the Wharf and Waterfront, Golden Gate Park, or the neighborhoods of Chinatown, North Beach, Little Italy and the Embarcadero at night. On a Segway, with a fun, knowledgeable guide leading the pack, you’ll see places and details you might never find on your own. While each tour is a totally different visual experience, they are all the same in important ways. They’re all fun, interesting, easy, safe, and the guides are great! With a maximum of 8 riders per tour (ages 12 and older, 18 and under accompanied by an adult), camaraderie develops between guide and riders, making it a really pleasant experience.
Never ridden a Segway before? No worries. The Electric Tour Company staff makes sure you get the hang of it before you take off. All San Francisco tours begin with a training session lasting about ½ hour. You quickly see how easy it is to glide upright on these really cool Segways with lean/steer technology, and the friendly staff takes their time to make sure everyone is comfortable. When everyone’s set to go, the ride starts out slowly to get used to the sensation of moving while standing upright! In just a couple of minutes, first-timer tension melts away and off you glide!
Wharf and Waterfront Segway Tour
San Francisco’s picturesque, active working waterfront, lined with wharves and piers is so legendary it’s on most visitors’ must see list. Sure, you can walk it, but seeing it by Segway is a blast! With your guide in the lead, you see things you would never notice wandering around on your own. You’ll glide along famous Fisherman’s Wharf, piled high with Dungeness Crabs (during season), by Municipal Pier and the Aquarium of the Bay. Along the way, you’ll see every kind of maritime vessel imaginable: 5 historic sailing ships lined up at Hyde Street Pier, colorful working fishing boats tucked into harbors, a WWII Liberty Ship, even a submarine. Along Fish Alley, the center of the Bay Area’s fishing industry since the mid 19th century, fresh fish takes on a new meaning as you venture behind the scenes where the catch is brought in daily en route to San Francisco’s great restaurants and beyond. Simple, tiny Seaman’s Memorial Chapel is special and off the beaten path, but your guide will get you there. Along the 2.5 mile tour with 10 stops, views of the Big Bay are spectacular offering endless photo ops: somber Alcatraz atop a rocky mound, Golden Gate Bridge, red and grand, vessels of every shape and form crisscrossing the wide expanse of water. Shops are everywhere, and while chocolate is no longer made in Ghiradelli Square, the smell of chocolate lingers in the samples available everywhere.
