What To Wear
Participants should wear comfortable closed-toe flat shoes and certainly no high heels, sandals or flip flops. It is also recommended to wear an extra layer of warm, wind resistant clothing. Gloves are recommended during the winter months. With the chilly wind, wet fog and damp environment along the waterfront, shorts and a t-shirt are not a good idea. Each Segway has a small handlebar storage bag for cameras, light jackets and purses. Backpacks or bulky bags will not fit in the handlebar bags. Please leave bulky backpacks at home.

For this experience, our partners are taking extra measures to prevent any potential spread of COVID-19. These measures include requiring all participants to wear face coverings at all times. If you don't have a face covering our partners are happy to supply one for you. All face coverings should fully cover an individual’s nose and mouth and allow the guest to remain hands free. The face covering needs to be secured with ties or ear loops and should be made of breathable material.

Our partners are taking numerous extra steps to keep guests safe during this time, such as sanitizing surfaces between tours. For complete disinfecting coverage, our partners use Grayco Sani-Spray disinfectant sprayers with approved List N disinfectant materials. The disinfectants meet EPA criteria for use against coronavirus on all of their equipment. Our partners will have hand sanitizer and wipes available on site. To eliminate the spread of COVID-19, they will have a touchless check-in process as waiver paperwork is now digital. All training will be outdoors, where 6' social distancing will be enforced. All tour guides will wear face shields, gloves, and masks since during this time they will need to be in close proximity to each guest. These Covid-19 safety measures are subject to change.

What is a Segway? How does it work?
The Segway Human Transporter is the first of its kind – a self-balancing, personal transportation device designed to go anywhere people do. Easy to use and operate, the two-wheeled Segway sports high-tech gyroscopes that monitor your balance 100 times a second and automatically respond to your body’s movements. To move forward, the rider simply leans forward. To stop or move backwards, the rider leans back slightly. The rider glides smoothly as the Segway senses where you want to go.
Are there any rider requirements?
All guests must be at least 12 years or older and weigh between 100 and 200 pounds. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult or guardian. Guests must be able to easily and quickly step on and off the Segway without any assistance, which requires similar physical abilities to climbing and descending stairs without assistance or use of a handrail. Pregnant guests are not permitted to participate due to fall risk. All guests must be able to stand on the Segway for up to 2 hours.
Does the tour make restroom stops?
There are restrooms at the start location. The tour will make at least one restroom stop on the tour after beginning training.
What should I wear?
It is cold and can be very windy in San Francisco. Dress comfortable and in layers. Highly recommended: Comfortable closed-toe flat shoes (no high heels, sandals, shape ups, z-coils or flip flops) and an extra layer of warm, wind resistant clothing. Gloves are recommended during the winter months.Each Segway has a very small handlebar storage bag for cameras, light jackets and purses.
Are gratuities included?
Gratuities are included as part of the ticket cost for private tours. Any additional guide gratuities are completely at the discretion of the guest and is always appreciated.
