Danielle was the tour leader for my group - she was patient and understanding of the fact that none of had ever ridden on a Segway before. After a brief training session, we went out on the open road. Luckily, the tour is structured so that it doesn't overwhelm beginners. For instance, we were only introduced to riding up and down a hill about mid-way through the tour, which was when we started to become truly comfortable with the Segways. In the end, we ended up exploring quite a number of places during the 3 or so hours that we had and it was breathtaking to be able to do so on a Segway.

I had the absolute best time every second of this adventure! Riding a Segway through the streets of San Francisco was the best way to see the sights; you’re on the ground without having to climb the steep hills. Our guide, Fima, was outstanding! He made sure we were all prepared to use the Segway and took all precautions to make sure we were safe. He was very personable and shared a lot of knowledge about the sights. He made this an incredibly fun experience. I plan to do it again!

The tour was amazing, and exceeded our expectations. Our guide, Josh, was very friendly and provided great instruction on how to ride the segways. The tour covered a lot more ground than we anticipated, and is the best way to see the popular spots. If we are back in San Fran, we will do the tour again!
