      About this San Francisco, California tour

      There are many ways to tour San Francisco; on foot, via motorcoach, ferry, or cable car but one of the most adventurous and unique ways is via a Segway, the world's first and only two-wheeled, battery-powered, self-balancing electric vehicle. What a fun (and green) way to see this city's iconic wharf and waterfront.

      You'll begin with an introductory video, hands-on training, and a test ride. After just a few minutes on a Segway, you'll feel completely comfortable. Then you'll head off with your group as your expert guide provides fun facts about what you're seeing. Check out the National Maritime Museum, Municipal Pier and Aquatic Park, and the cable car turnaround. Be on the lookout for the Dungenees crab stands at Fisherman's Wharf. You'll see the USS Pampanito, a United States Navy submarine, and the SSJeremiah O'Brien, a WWII Liberty ship and rare survivor of the 6,939-ship armada that stormed Normandy on D-Day, 1944.

      Check out the sailing ships at Hyde Street Pier and historic Fish Alley, a wharf built during the California Gold Rush. Pay attention to the Fishermen's and Seamen's Memorial Chapel, dedicated to those who were lost at sea. Don't miss Ghirardelli Square, where Italian immigrant Domenico "Domingo" Ghirardelli opened his original chocolate factory in 1852.

      Your guide will oversee stops for snacks and beverages along the way, as well as point out great spots for picture-taking. When your tour is over, you'll have lasting memories of touring the city in such a splendid way.

      Ginger segueways into the Segway name

      The Segway Personal Transporter vehicle was originally code-named Ginger, after Ginger Rogers, Fred Astaire's dance partner. When it came out in 2001, it was priced at $5,000, the equivalent of a standard used car. The rider moves the Segway by moving his body weight around, and then steers with the handlebars. It was supposed to revolutionize the world. That didn't quite happen. But the machine is easy to use and a lot of fun, too.
