- It was our first time on a segway...We got around a good portion of San Diego and saw everything that people recommended we see faster than walking, but experiencing more than a bus tour. We had a great time, and definitely recommend this tour to anybody new to the area, just visiting or just looking for something different to do. – Sirsnape, TripAdvisor
