THREE-HOUR SAN FRANCISCO SEGWAY TOUR

Glide with us on our best-selling San Francisco Segway Tour! This fun and informative three hour tour offers a fantastic overview of San Francisco alonside a local, expert tour guide. Whether this is your first visit to the 'City by the Bay' or even if you're a local, we're certain you'll learn something new with us, and have a ton of fun gliding through the famous streets and beaches. 

Your tour kicks off from our office, located just steps from Fisherman's Wharf. After an in-depth Segway orientation session, to ensure that everyone is comfortable on their machine, you'll take off into the heart of San Francisco alongside your local guide and small group of no more then 8 people. Effortlessly cruise up and down the city's famous hills that can be exhausting taking by foot, all while enjoying the sights and sounds of the city around you. You'll see all the highlights you're familiar with from television and movies including Pier 39, Ghiradelli Square, Hyde Street Pier, Spreckles Mansion, the Marina District (home to the stunning Palace of Fine Arts), and much more. We'll even catch views of Alcatraz Island and the former Federal Penitentiary that calls the island home from across the San Francisco Bay. 

Of course, no tour around San Francisco would be complete without taking in the views of our most iconic city symbol: the Golden Gate Bridge. What is most certainly the most photographed bridge in the world is best enjoyed from our vantage point where you can really take in its impressive size for yourself.

ALCATRAZ TOUR DETAILS

After a quick 10-minute ferry ride from San Francisco's Pier 33, you'll arrive at Alcatraz Island, home to the notorious former Federal Penitentiary that housed some of America's most unrelenting criminals and gangsters including Al Capone, "Machine Gun Kelly" and many more. Your ticket includes entrance into the prison and its exhibitions, as well as an audio guide available in six languages. You'll take a step back into history as you walk through the corridors of cell blocks and examine the historical photos and videos onsite. Hear about the fascinating history of the prison's many famous escapes made by prisoners. On a more lighthearted note, you'll get to enjoy beautiful views of the San Francisco skyline from the island from across the water. 

On average, you can expect to spend between 1.5 and 3 hours out at Alcatraz, and the ferry departs every 30 minutes to bring guests back to San Francisco. We recommend scheduling your Alcatraz visit and Segway tour on different days to ensure you aren't rushed for time.

For security purposes all guests are required to present a government issued photo ID before being admitted onto the Alcatraz ferry. Minors under the age of 18 are not permitted to tour Alcatraz Island without the accompaniment of an adult.

FAQ

  • Expand/Collapse Can I do the Segway Tour and tour Alcatraz Island on the same day?

    To allow ample time to tour the island, it is recommended that that your Alcatraz tour and Segway tour be scheduled on separate days.

    The San Francisco Segway Tour duration is approximately 3 hours, and the average amount of time spent on Alcatraz Island is 1.5 - 3 hours, not including ferry transport time. 

  • Expand/Collapse Where is the meeting point?

    Your Segway Tour will begin at our office, located at 333 Jefferson St., Suite 123, San Francisco, CA 94133. We are located in a walkway that begins between the In N Out Burger and Sunglass Hut in the Anchorage Square Shopping Center.

    For Alcatraz Island Entrance: Ferries to Alcatraz Island depart from Pier 33, which is a 15 minute's walk from our office. 

  • Expand/Collapse Is there an age or weight limit?

    For your riding safety, guests must be at least 12 years of age and weigh at least 100 pounds and not in excess of 260 pounds. Here in San Francisco we have to stick very strictly to our minimum weight of 100 pounds, as anyone under that weight runs the risk of having the Segway respond improperly on the (small) hills encountered on tour.

  • Expand/Collapse Can minors come on tour alone?

    For safety reasons, minors (anyone under the age of 18) must be accompanied by an adult on the tour and on Alcatraz Island.

  • Expand/Collapse If I am pregnant can I join the tour?

    Unfortunately, due to the risk to both child and mother, pregnant women are not allowed to participate on our Segway Tours.

  • Expand/Collapse How big will my group be?

    Our Segway tours operate in groups of 8.

  • Expand/Collapse Are reservations required?

    Yes, reservations for this tour combo are required.

    Alcatraz Cruises requires that we provide a manifest with each guest's full name no later than 4:00pm Pacific Standard Time 4 days before the scheduled Alcatraz ticket departure date. City Segway Tours will make a reasonable effort to contact guests who may have provided incomplete name information, however we are not responsible for misspellings, errors, or incomplete names submitted at the time of reservation. If any guest fails to provide an accurate and complete name for each guest, Alcatraz Cruises reserves the right to cancel the reserved tickets. City Segway Tours will not provide refunds for reservations cancelled because of incomplete or inaccurate guest details.

  • Expand/Collapse What if my party is more than 8 people?

    If the party is larger than 8 the group will be split up for safety reasons. If you would like to keep a larger group together, please get in touch with us and inquire about a Private Tour.

  • Expand/Collapse What time do I need to get there for my tour?

    Your tour will start promptly at the scheduled time, therefore please arrive 15 minutes prior to tour departure time in order to complete the necessary paperwork. Please be aware that we have multiple tours departing throughout the day, therefore if you arrive more than 30 minutes early we may still be working with other guests and not quite ready to welcome you properly. Each member of your party will be required to complete and sign a liability waiver form. Minors under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to complete their paperwork.

  • Expand/Collapse Will I need to put down a deposit?

    We do not take a deposit, though we do ask one member of your party to provide us with a credit card to save on file while you are on tour. Your card will not be charged unless there is damage caused to the Segway and card information will be deleted immediately upon completion of a damage-free tour.

  • Expand/Collapse Is this tour offered in any other languages? Or only English?

    Our Segway tours are only offered in English at this time.

    The Alcatraz Island Cellhouse Audio Tour is available in Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

  • Expand/Collapse Am I allowed to take pictures during the tour?

    Absolutely! However, we do recommend that you ask your guide to take your pictures so you can focus on riding and balancing on your Segway.

  • Expand/Collapse What is your cancellation policy?

    All Alcatraz ticket cancellations must be made by 4:00pm Pacific Time at least 4 days before the scheduled ticket departure. Any cancellations beyond this time are non-refundable.

    City Segway Tours does not offer refunds for any reason beyond the the cancellation window given.

  • Expand/Collapse Are tours cancelled in case of rain?

    No. Our tours operate rain or shine. We have ponchos available for purchase in our office for $1 and are happy to refund the price if it is unopened and unused during your Segway tour.

  • Expand/Collapse I've never ridden a Segway before; will I be able to pick it up quickly?

    Your safety is always our highest priority; therefore, we begin each tour with a very thorough orientation of the Segway and its use before going out to enjoy the city!

  • Expand/Collapse Are the Segways safe for people with disabilities?

    We have had several people with disabilities join our tours. The necessary range of motion required to operate a Segway is similar to that of being able to transfer weight from one foot to another while walking. Also, riding a Segway does require the need to be able to stand for long periods of time. Each of our tours begins with a short safety video followed by time to practice in our training area across the street and instruction from your tour guide. We will practice on the Segways until everyone feels comfortable.

    Please note that Alcatraz Island is steep and hilly, so be prepared for walking long distances uphill. Visitors unable to make the climb up Alcatraz's steep road can take advantage of SEAT – an electric shuttle that runs twice an hour from the dock to the prison building, and twice an hour from the front of the prison back to the dock. Boarding is available on a first come, first served basis. The use of SEAT is limited to those with the physical need only.

  • Expand/Collapse Can I rent a Segway without a guide?

    Unfortunately we do not rent our Segways out to individuals without a guide.

  • Expand/Collapse How far in advance do I have to make a reservation?

    Alcatraz Cruises requires that we provide a manifest with each guest's full name no later than 4:00pm Pacific Standard Time 4 days before the scheduled Alcatraz ticket departure date. City Segway Tours will make a reasonable effort to contact guests who may have provided incomplete name information, however we are not responsible for misspellings, errors, or incomplete names submitted at the time of reservation. If any guest fails to provide an accurate and complete name for each guest, Alcatraz Cruises reserves the right to cancel the reserved tickets. City Segway Tours will not provide refunds for reservations cancelled because of incomplete or inaccurate guest details.
