Tour also covers North Beach, Chinatown, and the Holiday Ice Rink at Embarcadero Center. See the Bay Lights Show, the Ferry Building, and the Transamerica Pyramid, all festooned for the season.

Tour is 2.5 hours.

What You'll Get

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Fisherman's Wharf, Jefferson Street Between Hyde and Powell Streets, San Francisco, CA 94133

Join a troupe of Segway riders on Beach Street, along Fisherman’s Wharf, to gear up for your evening ride with a 20-25-minute safety orientation. Along with a helmet and safety vest, you’ll get hooked up with a radio device so you don’t miss any of your guide’s commentary along the way. Once you feel comfortable on your two-wheeler, hit the streets to see Chinatown, North Beach, Fisherman’s Wharf and the Embarcadero lit up at night. It’s a great way to see the city in a new light!

Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes

Stop At: North Beach, Broadway at Columbus Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94111

Depart from Beach Street to head up to North Beach, or what locals consider the city’s Little Italy. The streets are flanked by bustling Italian restaurants, with the scent of authentic warm dishes wafting from the doorways.

Stop At: Washington Square, Union Street and Columbus Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94133

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.

Stop At: Chinatown, Grant Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94108

Cruise over to nearby Chinatown, one of the city’s 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.

Stop At: San Francisco Bay Bridge, Highway 80 West, San Francisco, CA 94105

From Chinatown, head east toward the waterfront to take in the Bay Bridge, which appears to be dressed in tinsel; it’s actually a light sculpture known as Bay Lights.

Stop At: The Embarcadero, Embarcadero Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94111

Continue along the Embarcadero past the Ferry Building to Fisherman’s Wharf for a look at the historic piers and harbors.

Stop At: Fisherman's Wharf, Jefferson Street Between Hyde and Powell Streets, San Francisco, CA 94133

Enjoy nighttime views of Alcatraz and Fisherman's Wharf before ending your Segway tour at the start point.
