Great way to experience the highlights of San Francisco!!

Tre' was a great tour guide and very helpful for us beginners learning to ride. The folks there are fantastic! After the tour was over and i had returned back to Pier 39, i realized i left some belongings in the segway. I called and they were just closing but the lady that answered the phone was very pleasant, located my stuff and creatively came up with a way for me to retrieve them after hours. THANK YOU VERY MUCH for going out of your way. Great business, highly recommend reserving your tour of San Francisco with San Francisco Electric Tour Company. The 2nd part of the combo was a tour of Alcatraz. That was fantastic! Spent 3 hours there and didn't see it all. Would recommend an extra hour there and see if you can move your segway tour a little later. Great time in San Fran.

Incredibly fun way to see some San Francisco sights.

Starts with a helpful practice session to learn to operate the Segway - pretty easy to learn and surprisingly quick to get comfortable once we were out on the road. Our guide, Melanie, kept our group safe and provided constant and entertaining commentary through headphones they provided. Melanie was outstanding! She gave us information and told us stories about the places we saw, and took photos of our group (posted later so we could see and download). She had a great sense of humor and a wonderfully outgoing personality. This was a really fun activity for both me and my teenage daughter. Highly recommend!

Amazing day

Amazing day, For the price of the tour it was well worth it. To be able to go to Alcatraz and do the Segway tour around San Francisco me and my wife had a blast. Our guide was absolutely amazing. I can’t remember her name but she had a great sense of humor and made the tour enjoyable. Will definitely do it again when we bring our kids next time.
