Segway Touring Moves into Golden Gate Park

As the exclusive provider of Segway tours in Golden Gate Park, the San Francisco Electric Tour Company offers a fully narrated, eight-mile tour route that explores the eastern section of the 1,100-acre park on winding trails and bike routes. The quiet, eco-friendly vehicles are not only easy to operate but also bring riders closer to the beauty of the park.

“It took two years to get this tour launched, but it was well worth the wait because we’re now the exclusive licensed Segway tour operator in Golden Gate Park,” explained Brian Huber, company founder.

The park, built on sand dunes back in the last half of the 1800s, is larger than New York’s Central Park and covered with more than 75,000 trees. Segways navigate the rectangular area, which is relatively flat compared to the hills for which San Francisco is known.

Segways are zero-emissions vehicles that operate on electricity. The Segway i2 can travel 24 miles on a single battery charge, making it an ideal replacement for mid-distance sightseeing tours.

Segway, the electric transport mechanism that is guided by the rider's natural motions for forward and backward maneuvering, was first introduced in 2003. It easily navigates most areas, including paved surfaces, dirt roads, grass, and hills.
