“Response to the Segway tours has been simply phenomenal,” explains company founder Brian Huber. “Within weeks after we opened last October, the weekend tours were full and waiting list was constantly growing!”

The new training facility at 757 Beach Street (at Hyde) has allowed the San Francisco Electric Tour Company to triple the available tours per day. Six daily tour departure times are now available and yet the prices remain low. One satisfied customer described the tour as “an amazing tour package at an outstanding price! A great experience with excellent training and first class tour guides.” “Your Segway tour is the best entertainment value I’ve had in years,” said another.

Combining the unique transport qualities of the Segway -- an electric transport mechanism that is guided by the rider’s natural motions for forward and backward maneuvering – with the beauty of San Francisco, these tours have become a fast favorite among the city’s visitors as well as locals. San Francisco Electric Tour Company pioneered the tour in San Francisco and is the only company offering it in the city.

Segways easily navigate most walk-able areas, including paved surfaces, trails and of course the San Francisco hills. “They allow riders to experience San Francisco like no bus tour can,” says Huber. “They’re fun, they’re safe, and ideal for families with children over 12.” After 30 -40 minutes of training on how to operate the Segway safely, riders explore the San Francisco waterfront for a full two and a half hours, covering as much as six to eight miles.

Tours begin at Fisherman's Wharf and cover the Cable Car turnaround, Ghirardelli Square, National Maritime Museum and the historic sailing ships, Fort Mason (former military base, now a historic landmark), Marina Green, Palace of Fine Arts (once the site of the 1915 Panama Pacific Exposition). Tours include views of Alcatraz, Golden Gate Bridge, Bay Bridge and Angel Island. Numerous photo stops are included.

Tours depart daily. From April until October, departures are 9:00 a.m., 12:45 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. daily. November until March departures are 9:15 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. Additional departure times are added based on demand. All Segway Tours depart from Fisherman’s Wharf. Fees are $65 per person (includes helmet and training) and reservations are required. Riders must be between 12 and 65 years of age; people under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Tours are limited to ten riders. Riders must be over 100 pounds and less than 250 pounds. Other custom tours are available for corporate and private groups.
