I loved seeing parts of GGPark that I've never seen before. The Segway was a fun way to do that. I've lived here for more than 50 years.

Our tour was great! I'm so glad we did this. Captain Kyle was really fun and knowledgable. A great way to see Golden Gate Park!

The GG park tour with Jeff was very good. Got to see parts of the park that I probably would not have.

Had a great time the place is way different than when I went there as a kid.

I had no idea how much fun Segway are!! Our guide, Susan, was a lot of fun!
