San Francisco at Night: Segway Tour of North Beach, Chinatown and the Embarcadero

22 Reviews

  • Location: San Francisco, California
  • Duration: 2.5 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 2062NIGHT
When the sun goes down in San Francisco, a twinkling display of lights keeps the city glowing throughout the night. While a brisk stroll is one way to admire this nightly light show, why not cover more ground on a Segway tour of Chinatown, North Beach and the Embarcadero? It’s a rare opportunity to take this two-wheeler on the streets of some of San Francisco’s most famous neighborhoods after dark. Your guide keeps you, family and friends on track with fun trivia and facts about the sights you pass, and there are plenty of stops to take photos along the way.

Highlights

  • See the sights illuminated at night
  • Fully narrated tour
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • All necessary equipment included
Join a troupe of Segway riders on Beach Street, along Fisherman’s Wharf, to gear up for your evening ride with a 40-minute safety orientation. Along with a helmet and safety vest, you’ll get hooked up with a radio device so you don’t miss any of your guide’s commentary along the way. Once you feel comfortable on your two-wheeler, hit the streets to see Chinatown, North Beach, Fisherman’s Wharf and the Embarcadero lit up at night. It’s a great way to see the city in a new light!

Depart from Beach Street to head up to North Beach, or what locals consider the city’s Little Italy. The streets are flanked by bustling Italian restaurants, with the scent of authentic warm dishes wafting from the doorways. Imagine the Beat poets and artists who once roamed the neighborhood as your guide shares history about the counterculture movement at Washington Square Park by Saints Peter and Paul Church.

Cruise over to nearby Chinatown, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods. Along the lantern-lit streets, peer into dim sum houses, admire temples and appreciate souvenirs that dangle from windows and spill over display tables. If you visit in mid-winter, expect to see festive decorations in honor of the Chinese New Year.

From Chinatown, head east toward the waterfront to take in the Bay Bridge, which appears to be dressed in tinsel; it’s actually a light sculpture known as Bay Lights. Continue along the Embarcadero past the Ferry Building to Fisherman’s Wharf for a look at the historic piers and harbors. Enjoy nighttime views of Alcatraz and Fisherman's Wharf before ending your Segway tour at the start point.

We were a little nervous trying Segway for the first time on the roads of San Francisco at night but the tour from start to finish was excellent. We had Aaron as our tour guide who was a genuinely nice and friendly guy who didn't seem as though he was doing it for the tips. The training at the start was really helpful and gave you confidence before you set off. After we started to explore the streets Aaron was extremely knowledgable about the city and gave a lot of information throughout the evening and was happy to take photos of everyone. It was a stand out tour and one of the best we did on our multi city trip to the USA. The Segways were excellent and I'd like to get my own now! I like the way Aaron never mentioned anything about tips and there were no signs about it like many of the other tours we went on, this was a nice touch and he deserves tipping highly for his excellent customer care and service. Highly recommended.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to be riding around the roads of San Francisco on a Segway was brilliant tour guide was very funny and great entertainment to. Perhaps the tour went on a little bit to long, but still was brilliant and great fun for all ages.
