Full description
Experience Golden Gate Park from a different perspective on a private Segway tour. Glide through the urban park by personal transporter, and stop to spend time at its many treasures. Get a fascinating commentary through a compact single earbud sound system as you follow the designated trails. Journey along streets of light traffic at low speed for your comfort and safety. First, benefit from a personal, 1-to-1, 30 to 35-minute safety briefing to ensure you feel confident on the self-balancing vehicles. Then, set off to discover the many landmarks, museums and gardens of Golden Gate Park, such as the Japanese Tea Garden, Shakespeare Garden and Conservatory of Flowers. Encounter hidden gems along the way! Golden Gate Park is larger than New York's Central Park, and once consisted of sand dunes now covered with more than 75,000 trees. The 7-mile (11.2-kilometer) route you will take explores the eastern section of the 1,017-acre (411-hectare) park. See highlights such as the De Young Museum, California Academy of Sciences, Music Concourse and Temple of Music, Lily Pond and much more. Experience the beauty of the park’s trees, flowers and plants as you traverse the winding trails and bike paths past sites such as the Fern Grotto, San Francisco Botanical Gardens and Rose, Rhododendron and Dahlia Gardens.

We had the Private Tour which was excellent. We did the upper part of the Golden Gate Park which was very interesting with many stops to take pictures. Also the Training was simple and easy.

Great way to see Golden Gate park.

Yohannis was a fantastic guide! Very knowledgeable about the park. We took a private tour and saw the entire park. He took us to many out-of-the-way places like a fly fishing tournament area and a polo field. Highly recommended.
