Wharf & Waterfront Segway Tour

The Wharf & Waterfront Segway Tour offers you the complete experience: A great orientation, informative historical and current-day information, heaps of unique and fascinating stories, fantastic photo ops, superb personal service from your guide and an opportunity to ride the coolest machine in the world - the Segway!

What is a Segway?
 

bullet Easy to use and operate, the two-wheeled Segway sports high-tech gyroscopes that automatically respond to your body's movements, "sensing" when it should speed up and slow down.
bullet You stand on a small platform between left and right wheels as you hold onto handlebars at a comfortable waist height. The Segway handles the balancing for you, so that you're always upright as you glide through any environment.
bullet Designed to operate in any pedestrian environment. It's new, it's cool, safe and easy to use, plus a ton of fun! The perfect way to see the Bay City.
   
Overview:

A Wharf & Waterfront Segway Tour is a one-of-a-kind way to experience the City By The Bay! If boarding a buggy, climbing aboard a cable car, or ferrying through fog sounds nice, but rather traditional, a San Francisco Segway Tour is a whole new way to appreciate the beauty of the city by the bay!

As the world's first and only self-balancing electric transport mechanism, the Segway Human Transporter has set a new standard for sightseeing fun! Unlike a bicycle, the Segway does not have to be moving to balance. When the Segway is powered up it automatically balances itself. You will be totally comfortable standing on the two wheeled machine, after riding it for only a few minutes. And, completely ready to operate the Segway after the informative, hands-on training!

Fun for individuals, families or groups! It's the transportation of the New Millenium! You'll all agree that Segway-ing is the best way to explore San Francisco's waterfront!

Your narrated "Waterfront Tour Route" will feature spectacular views of San Francisco Bay while you visit:

bullet Municipal Pier and Aquatic Park
