Had a great time and Seth was an awesome tour guide. Highly recommend taking this tour!!
Awesome tour, I'd highly recommend. Downtown San Diego is the perfect place for a Segway tour too spaced out for a walking tour yet not sprawled out so much that you need a motor vehicle. The tour covers most of the major tourist spots of downtown including the Gaslamp district and Petco park, the USS Midway, little Italy, and Balboa Park. Not enough time to really explore each attraction, but enough to get a good feel for the city and what it has to offer. Our groups tour guide was John, he was entertaining and knowledgeable of the city, so I would recommend joining one of his groups if it's an option.
John Sobo? was the perfect tour guide - careful, knowledgeable, and fun.
Great tour! The Segways were fun and easy to learn. Caroline was a great hide. A must for your trip to San Diego.
What a great way to see the city! This was our first activity in San Diego. We had never been on Segways before, so we were a little nervous. We were shown a "how-to" video of a little stick figure that kept landing on it's face, so I was not feeling very confident. As soon as I stepped on the Segway, I realized how easy it was to control. Ryan, our guide, was fantastic and the tour took us all over the city including the Harbor, the Gaslamp Quarter, and Balboa Park. The tour lasted approximately 2 ½ hours and it was well worth the money! Tons of fun!
The tour guide was superb, knowledgeable, and personable. The group was small enough that we got personal attention.
The tour was just great. Thought I would have trouble as I have just had back surgery 5 months ago and don't have good balance but it was no problem. Our guide Jon was fantastic - great knowledge of the area and very good at making everyone comfortable on the segways. I would highly recommend this tour.
