Know More about this tour

Start your Segway tour of Golden Gate Park at the Music Concourse, located behind the bandstand. This advanced tour, catered to a maximum of six participants with prior Segway riding experience, includes less time learning to ride to ensure more time touring the park. Test out your Segway to brush up on your skills, then snap on your headset and radio transmitter to hear your guide's commentary. Gloves, hats, and jackets are also provided, depending on the weather.

After this brief introduction, head out on a 2.5-hour route that covers roughly 8 miles with some challenging terrain along the eastern end of the 1,017-acre (411-hectare) Golden Gate Park. Glide past iconic landmarks and stop for pictures at unique monuments along the way. Learn the history of the barren sand dunes, dubbed the 'outside lands' by early San Francisco settlers, and hear how early designers transformed the area into the lush park modeled after Frederick Law Olmstead’s famous Central Park in New York City. 

Stop in front of the Japanese Tea Garden, Conservatory of Flowers, DeYoung Museum, and Academy of Sciences. See lesser-known sites such as the Lily Pond, Prayerbook Cross, and the Fern Grotto. Hear about the Summer of Love and former local bands such as the Grateful Dead, and look for blue herons, red-tailed hawks, and tropical parrots that inhabit the park.

Upon completion of the tour, you will be within easy walking distance of local shops and restaurants and close to public transit options easily connecting you to Union Square and Fisherman’s Wharf.
