Our San Francisco Waterfront, Golden Gate Park and Segway Tours mainly stay on the "flat parts" of the city. None of our tours go to or across the Golden Gate Bridge. (better explored on foot) We offer 2 Advanced Tours that incorporate hills. Our Wharf & Hills Advanced Rider Tour that starts in the Wharf does travel up and down some great hills and includes going down the famous Crooked Lombard Street hill. Our newest Advanced Tour explores Golden Gate Park. Both Advanced Tours are limited to riders that have previously taken a full 1+ hour Segway tour (on a new i2 Segway model) in the past year. Segways are allowed on most San Francisco streets and designated bike pathways. Segways are not allowed on sidewalks in San Francisco. We strongly stress that all Segway riders courteously "Share the Road" with other vehicles, bikes and pedestrians.
It is the Segway rider’s responsibility to yield to pedestrians. Pedestrians have the right-of way.
Our routes in San Francisco are mainly on designated bike lanes. These bike lanes are adjacent to city streets. In some places the bike lane is the full width of the city street. We are in a busy big city and will be in some high traffic areas. San Francisco has more bike lanes per square mile than any other US City. Unlike Segway tours in other US cities we cannot operate the tours on the sidewalk. Each Segway has a radio so the guide can advise you to upcoming changes in the route. Similar to a bike ride you will have to be aware of your surroundings and traffic.
Safety is very important to us: All Segway guests must be age 12 or older and weight at least 100 pound (46 kilos). If you book a tour and any of your guests do not meet the minimum age / weight criteria they will not be allowed on the tour and you will NOT be given a refund. .Please review the rider requirements in the FAQ.
