The answer to riders' number one request, "Can we ride down the crookedest street?” is “Yes, you can!” Challenge yourself on this exhilarating fully narrated advanced tour, designed for guests with prior experience riding an i2 Segway. The tour scoots up Russian Hill, eases down the world’s “crookedest” street, explores North Beach / Little Italy, and glides along the waterfront. This new Advanced Rider Segway Tour incorporates more riding, bigger hills and a bit less historical narration than our beginning tours. All Advanced Tour guests must have a prior (2 hour minimum) tour riding experience in the past year on the i2 Segway with lean steer technology.
Your fully narrated tour will feature spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay from the hills of the city.
