San Francisco Combo: Alcatraz and Three Hour City Segway Tour
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Alcatraz Island, Pier 33, San Francisco, CA 94133
On your first day, board a ferry at Pier 33 for the 10-minute ride across placid San Francisco Bay toward Alcatraz Island.
When you arrive, watch an informative movie about Alcatraz, which once housed some of the nation’s most heinous criminals, including Al Capone and James ‘Whitey’ Bulger. A number of inmates tried to escape the massively fortified island, but no one is known to have succeeded. Take an audio tour of the cellblocks and historic buildings that are a gloomy contrast to the spellbinding views of San Francisco’s skyline in the distance.
Duration: 3 hours
Stop At: City Segway Tours San Francisco, 333 Jefferson St, San Francisco, CA 94133-1132
Your Segway tour isn’t until the next day, so there’s no need to hurry. Explore the compound at your own pace and head back to the mainland when you wish; ferries depart roughly every half hour.
The day after your expedition to Alcatraz, meet your guide for your 3-hour morning or afternoon Segway tour -- an intimate, leisurely way to see more of San Francisco than you would on a walking tour or bus tour. Receive a safety orientation to get comfortable on your Segway, and then set off to explore the city with your small group and knowledgeable guide.
Listen to your guide talk about the city’s rich history as you glide past its most distinctive landmarks, stopping for incredible photo opportunities.

John was wonderful and so knowledgeable! The tour was a perfect length, and the Segway’s were so fun to drive.
I bought the combo because Alcatraz was unavailable for 3 weeks. So, I paid more then I wanted to but was receiving a Segway Tour. Well, Alcatraz was incredible PERIOD. If you come to San Francisco, you must visit 'The Rock'. The next day we showed up for the Segway portion of our package. OMG, what a blast!!!!! My wife was a little reluctant, however after a few minutes of one on one instructions, she was ready to go. Our guide Josh was awesome too! Everything went well at check in for both after booking with Viator.
The Alcatraz tour was great. The City Segway Tour was more than great! My young adult children say that it was one of the highlights of the trip to California for them! Michelle was an awesome guide! I would definitely recommend the Segway Tour!
The Segway tour was a great way to get a quick idea of what to see
Alcatraz was great, pretty much what you'd expect...but a blast nonetheless. The Segway Tour was so much fun! I didn't know what to expect exactly, and this totally exceeded my expectations. Our tour guide, John, was super nice and informative! the Segway was easy to operate, I was a bit nervous about that initially, but it was no big deal. We saw lots of cool things and learned a lot of information. Overall it was totally worth the money spent!
A terrific method of seeing the city. Victor did a terrific job as our guide we had a wonderful and memorable experience.
We had an absolute blast! My nephews absolutely loved the freedom of zooming up and down the San Fran hills on the Segway! Our guide was super safe and educated us very well on how to manage the Segway on the steep hills...
We wouldn't have been able to get to Alcatraz if we didn't have the opportunity to by the combo - glad they planned ahead! The Segway tour was fun - and we soon got the hang of it - my teenagers were terrified of being seen on a Segway but soon got over that angst and had a great time. Our guide was fun while keeping us all safe and a some interesting stories to add. Could have skipped the trip down to see Scoma's and maybe just had it pointed out in passing - would have skipped Ghirardelli's too but the restrooms were a good idea!
