What are the 5 Best Segway Tours in San Francisco?

There’s so much to see in San Francisco and Segway tours let you cover a lot of ground in a short period of time. But because not all Segway tours are alike, we have combed through all of them to find the one that’s best for you. So let’s get gliding in one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

Best Segway tour for first-time visitors:

Electric Tour Company offers a Wharf and Waterfront Segway Tour that is not only perfect for the first-time visitor to San Francisco but also for a first-time Segway rider. The Electric Tour Company offers amazing training for first-time riders (in 14 different languages, so pretty much nobody is left out!), and this particular tour starts in the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf. Of more than 200 tours, this is the tour that TripAdvisor guests rated No. 1 in San Francisco from  2014 through 2018.

The tour covers the historic Waterfront and North Beach (Little Italy). The Electric Tour Company is the only company in the city that offers narrated tours with radios, which means you don’t have to strain to hear a tour guide’s description of what you see – you’ll be wearing earbuds that deliver the information directly to you in crystal clear detail. These guys have a huge fleet of Segways and lots of departures every day. Their guests rave on both TripAdvisor and Yelp that the Waterfront tour was the “Best part of their San Francisco Vacation.”

 

Best Segway tour for first-time visitors:Insider Tip: Beat the crowds by taking the first departure time of the morning. That’s when the groups are smallest and the wharf is not as busy. (They never exceed 10 guests per guide on any tour anyway, but if you like more individualized attention and fewer people, sign up for the earliest tour.)

Cost, Duration and Times

  • $75.00 per person – Ages 12 and up over 100 lbs
  • 2.5 hours
  • Multiple departure times throughout the day
