Overview
Admire top San Diego attractions on this narrated morning or afternoon Segway tour that includes instruction and is perfect for beginners! See the historic Gaslamp Quarter, Balboa Park, Petco Park and the 'USS San Diego' Memorial, stopping for photos along the way. Follow your knowledgeable guide as you learn about the city's history and major landmarks. Touring the city by Segway is a novel, memorable way to cover lots of territory in a short span of time.
Highlights
  • See San Diego’s top sights on a Segway tour
  • Cover more distance than a walking tour but with the same flexibility
  • Guide’s live narration offers perspective on San Diego history
  • Visit the waterfront, Gaslamp quarter, Balboa Park, and more
What to Expect
Meet your guide in San Diego’s centrally located Gaslamp Quarter and practice scooting around on a self-balancing Segway before hitting the streets. Soak up the ambience of trendy restaurants and clubs housed in Victorian-era buildings as you travel, and then continue on to Chinatown and past Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres. You guide helps to keep your energy up with provided snacks and makes sure you capture the memories with stops for photos along the way. Take in scenic harbor views as you roll along Navy Pier, Seaport Village, and past anchored ships like the Star of India and USS Midway. Head inland to Balboa Park, a beautifully landscaped cultural hub where you’ll see a handful of museums, plus working artists’ studios at Spanish Village. Smell the fragrant blooms at a botanic garden before scooting back to the starting point downtown.
