The segways are a ton of fun! The tour guides were very good at making sure we were trained very well and everyone knew how to operate the segway before the tour started. My only critique is wanting to go faster and maybe less stops but they also had very good information about the park, and there was a lot of people, bikers, etc so the speed had to be moderate. They also took a lot of pics and sent them to each participant. Excellent fun experience!
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.
I had no idea how much fun Segway are!! Our guide, Susan, was a lot of fun!
