Hills Of San Francisco and Crooked Street Advanced Segway Tour

A great option for those that have used a Segway before and are experienced with the controls. This Advanced Rider Segway Tour incorporates more riding, bigger hills and a bit less historical narration. Most importantly it offers a chance to ride down the world's 'crookedest' street!

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 a Segway and who want to test the machine a little further.

This tour includes scooting up Russian Hill, riding down the world’s crookedness street, seeing the sights in North Beach Little Italy and a glide along the waterfront. Cruise through Aquatic Park and to the end of Municipal Pier. See the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, great views of Alcatraz, Golden Gate Bridge and unbelievable bay vistas. Climb the slopes of Russian Hill - the affluent residential neighborhood's name goes back to the Gold Rush-era when settlers discovered a small Russian cemetery at the top of the hill. Enjoy sweeping Russian Hill views of Alcatraz, Coit Tower, The Bay Bridge and San Francisco Bay. Peek down Hidden Stairways and Paths and see some of San Francisco's 350 hidden stairways and pedestrian-only lanes. Climb past the Cable Cars to the peak of Lombard Street and then glide down the world’s most famous "Crooked Street!" Cruise towards North Beach on the slopes of Telegraph Hill. North Beach is the city's most European neighborhood, with a primarily Italian flavor. Recently it was honored as one of the 10 greatest neighborhoods in the country. Stop and see St. Peter and Paul's Church and Washington Square Park, the center of "Little Italy." Return to the waterfront near Pier 39 - home of the sea lions, and one of the top tourist attractions in the nation. You will see Historic Fishing fleets and crab stands as you glide back to the starting point. If you wish to join this advanced tour, you must have taken a segway tour (2 hours or more) in the last 12 months. This is not a beginners tour nor appropriate for guests with mobility issues.
