Overview

When the sun goes down in San francisco, a twinkling display of lights keeps the city glowing throughout the night. While a brisk stroll is one way to admire this nightly light show, why not cover more ground on a Segway tour of Chinatown, North beach and the Embarcadero? Its a rare opportunity to take this two-wheeler on the streets of some of San Franciscos most famous neighborhoods after dark. Your guide keeps you, family and friends on track with fun trivia and facts about the sights you pass, and there are plenty of stops to take photos along the way.

  • See the sights illuminated at night
  • Fully narrated tour
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide

Know More about this tour

Join a troupe of Segway riders on Beach Street, along Fishermans wharf, to gear up for your evening ride with a 40-minute safety orientation. Along with a helmet and safety vest, youll get hooked up with a radio device so you dont miss any of your guides commentary along the way. Once you feel comfortable on your two-wheeler, hit the streets to see Chinatown, North beach, Fishermans wharf and the Embarcadero lit up at night. Its a great way to see the city in a new light!

Depart from Beach Street to head up to North beach, or what locals consider the citys Little italy. The streets are flanked by bustling Italian restaurants, with the scent of authentic warm dishes wafting from the doorways. Imagine the Beat poets and artists who once roamed the neighborhood as your guide shares history about the counterculture movement at Washington square Park by Saints peter and paul church.

Cruise over to nearby Chinatown, one of the citys oldest neighborhoods. Along the lantern-lit streets, peer into dim sum houses, admire temples and appreciate souvenirs that dangle from windows and spill over display tables. If you visit in mid-winter, expect to see festive decorations in honor of the Chinese New Year.

From Chinatown, head east toward the waterfront to take in the Bay bridge, which appears to be dressed in tinsel; its actually a light sculpture known as Bay Lights. Continue along the Embarcadero past the Ferry building to Fishermans wharf for a look at the historic piers and harbors. Enjoy nighttime views of Alcatraz and Fisherman's Wharf before ending your Segway tour at the start point.

    Not only was the weather perfect, but our small group of four was led by a wonderful tour guide, AG. AG was knowledgeable of the areas history, which made it fun to hear about the lesser known facts of SF. Not only did she tell us about he history and culture of the neighborhoods, she let us in on a few good places to eat, too. This was my second tour and the two were different, which I liked a lot.

    Prep time a little boring, but tour was a very memorable time. Stop for some dim sum - was great. There were six in our party and all had a great time. We now look for similar tours when traveling. Do it!

    The staff and guides were great and had us all up and running within about 20 minutes. I think next time i would opt for the park tour as the traffic was so bad during parts of the tour we ended up spending a lot of time stuck in one place.

    Fun excursion! Pre-ride Segway training was enough to make us comfortable. Our guide Trey was entertaining and well-informed. Great way to see some SF sights and neighborhoods!

    My family did night tour with Tre, the whole experience went very smooth from training to getting on the road. Guide was very informative, fun and always kept eye out for the safety of the group. Highly recommend seeing city on a Segway.

    What a great time, and a great way to see the city. Carlos, our tour guy, was fun, informative and lead us on an adventure seeing parts of the city we would never had seen on our own. The portion of the tour in Chinatown was highlight of the evening. I highly recommend this tour. Not to mention, the Segway is a blast to use. We can't wait to try another Segway tour.
