"Too much fun and super easy! "

We went on a Segway tour last week and our tour guide was Kyle! As it was later in the afternoon and somewhat offseason we had a private tour, it was just the two of us which was fantastic. Kyle was an excellent guide. He had a great sense of humor, and he somewhat customized our tour for us which was much appreciated. The Segways were easy to learn how to ride and I felt very safe the entire trip. If you've never ridden a Segway you should give it a try! It's a great way to see San Francisco. Thanks Kyle great memories!! Terry and Jennifer

Great experience! We drove through Little Italy, China Town (here we tasted food I never had before, but I have to admit it was really good :-) John who lead our party of 4 was explaining details about "little Notre Dame" church and provided many other background information you can't find in any tourist guide. Highly recommended!
