The San Francisco Electric Tour Company offers fun-filled tours of one of the world’s most beautiful cities on the world’s most unique transportation device: the Segway! In October 2004, we became the first company in San Francisco to offer eco-friendly Segway Tours. Although we believe in showing you a good time, we also believe in keeping you safe. We have a commitment to “guest safety first” on all of our Segway and Scooter tours.
Our kick-butt scooters not only have more power than the average rental but when you ride one, you’re also cruising to the Golden Gate Bridge in style. Best of all, scooters are a blast to ride! Wheel through Maritime Park and Marina Green through the Presidio on the way to the Golden Gate Bridge.

For the safety and complete training of our guest late arrivals will not be allowed to join a tour that has already started training.
Please be on time.
After 30-35 minutes of fun training on how to safely operate the Segway, you’ll explore the San Francisco waterfront with a fully narrated tour. Tours are limited to ten riders per guide.
Activity is 2.5 hours including training.
Training is 30 to 35 minutes, During the busy summer season training time may be slightly longer.

No weight exceptions.
No pregnant guests.
Not recommended for some guests over age 70 or with mobility, motor control or recent surgeries.

On some hills the scooter will require a bit of “kick” to maintain momentum. The electric motors are helpful on the hills but are not strong enough to propel heavier guests up some slopes. Be prepared to kick.
NOTE: If you have never ridden a bike this may not be the activity for you. Riding a scooter requires side to side balance similar to riding a bike.
Face Masks or Face Coverings are required for both guests and the tour guide during check in and during the entire tour. Face coverings are required indoors and outdoors in San Francisco.
If you don’t have a face covering we will be happy to supply one.
Please review our complete Covid 19 #SafeTour program and the extra steps we are taking to keep everyone healthy.
