About Us - San Francisco
Our mission is to provide safe, fun and unforgettable experiences through superior customer service that creates memories and smiles that last a lifetime.
All of our tours have been designed with you, our guest, in mind.
Hello and welcome to San Francisco, California! I have loved this city since my first visit many years ago. The food, art, wine, and electric energy of the city draws you in and makes it one of the most exciting places in the United States. San Francisco’s landscape of sea, mountains, fog mixed with the dynamic mix of cultures, languages and lifestyles is unlike anything else.
Our tours are an incredible way to explore the city. While the many steep hills are what makes this city so special, it can be exhausting to get around on foot. Our goal is that each and every one of our guests feel like they are simply exploring San Francisco with a friend, with a fun added twist of a Segway or bike.
Fat Tire Tours has been focused on delivering unforgettable experiences in cities around the world since 1999, but after all these years, our tours still focus on giving each customer the fantastic private and personal experience they seek through our limited group size, unparalleled touring knowledge and outstanding reputation. I am very proud that we have evolved from a simple three-hour bike tour to offering multiple daily bicycle, Segway, walking and skip-the-line tours around the world. While many others have tried to replicate our efforts, I hope you will choose to explore Italy with us and see for yourself why I believe we stand head and shoulders above the rest.
I look forward to welcoming you on our tours and to creating the same memories for you and your friends and family that have made us world famous since 1999.
We look forward to hosting you soon,
David Mebane, Founder & CEO

Sustainable San Francisco
We love our city, and we want to preserve it for generations to come so that more people can fall in love with it too. That’s why we’ve conducted an audit of our business practices to ensure that we’re doing everything we can to be as sustainable as possible. We’re not perfect, but we are putting in the work to improve.
We want to be transparent with our guests about our sustainability goals. We are aware of areas where we’re already acting in an eco-conscious manner as well as where we have room for improvement. We have created goals for ourselves to work towards in the next year and in the next five years. We hope that you will take the time to read more about what we’re doing to keep San Francisco green, and we can’t wait to show you around our naturally beautiful city.
