- 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
- It was very easy to learn how to use the segways, and this is coming from a guy with questionable balance. You'll love the staff and tour! – Ryan D., Yelp, 1/2/11
