This tour was all around fantastic... the sights, staff, and fellow passengers. Dorit, our tour guide, was funny, friendly, and made our time together all the more enjoyable with her exceptional photography skills. My friends found it hard to believe that we did so much in three days. I don't know any other tour that includes visits to all the major landmarks in Santa Barbara, Carmel, Solvang, San Francisco, and Yosemite. The visit to Yosemite was what I was looking forward to the most and it did not disappoint. We saw Bridal Veil, Tunnel View, Half Dome, El Capitan and had time to do a hike and have lunch. The group of people were super chill, very respectful and friendly towards each other. Even when unexpected situations occurred (e.g. no translator for the Italian couple, 'dry breakfast' at the Clarion), Dorit handled it quickly and professionally. Sam was an excellent, safe driver and such a gentleman. I'd take this tour again.
This was a fun way to see some of San Francisco and learn a bit more about it. Doing it in the evening was fine. Our children of 15 and 17 particularly enjoyed it. The initial training is thorough and we were a bit worried about how we would cope on the road, but it is pretty easy once you get going, and the guide, Liz was very good about checking the traffic conditions and making it clear what we should do. Wrap up well if the weather is chilly at all (we got some gloves at a nearby shop which was a good buy).
Overall it was a good experience would like to stay a bit longer at Pebble Beach & Carmel. The San Francisco day was excellent. I would skip the City Hall and would prefer more a stop at Golden Gate Park or at Muir Woods. The Yosemite day was great the only problem we had was an Austrian couple was late by 25 minutes from our first El Capitan stop. This made coming back to Los Angeles very late.
This was our first segway tour! Kevin was helpful, informative and humorous! We were able to see so much in a time window that was perfect for us. There was time to take a short break while on the tour to enjoy a quick slice of pizza as well! Kevin made the experience very fun and we will definitely be taking another segway tour in the future!
The professionals who guide the tour teach you in a short time and are very careful to make sure everyone is safe. Drivers are used to seeing the tour groups and we never felt unsafe.
