GOLDEN GATE PARK ADVANCED TOUR – For Experienced Riders
What’s the difference between the Advanced Golden Gate Park tour and the Golden Gate Park tour?
The Advanced Golden Gate Park Segway tour is for guests who already know how to ride a Segway and want to explore the park without having to complete our full Segway training. Less training time equals more riding time! You will explore even more of this 1000+ acre park on this 2 and a half hour tour. All Advanced Tour guests must have a prior (2 hour minimum) tour riding experience within the past year on the i2 Segway with lean steer technology.
Tour guides share tidbits and trivia about the Park’s stewards over the years, the impact of WWII on the Japanese Tea Garden, and the story of the park’s historical transformation from bleak sand dunes to today’s lush vista. Small tour groups no larger than 8 guests.
∙ Advance Tour training is a quick recap of skills for experienced riders
∙ See hidden locations in the park
∙ 2.5 hour experience including shortened training recap
∙ Fully narrated tour.

The tour was excellent from beginning to end. The training was detailed and the team was incredibly supportive. Our tour guide Leonitis was informative, friendly, helpful, funny, and had great concern for everyone’s safety as well as making sure that everyone enjoyed themselves. We definitely want to take another tour with this group, they were great!!!

Our Segway tour of Golden Gate Park was the highlight of our ten days in northern California. We received great training on the Segways and felt really comfortable and safe riding them. Jeff, our tour guide, was exceptional – professional, personable, humorous, and incredibly knowledgeable about the park and its history. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend our Segway tour to anyone.
