"Great Tour"

I am in SFO playing while my husband works! Lucky me. Today I did the Segway tour with Devin (not Brandon) and it was the perfect way to do a tour solo. I had never ridden a Segway before, but they were so careful with their training that I had no problem at all. It was a beautiful day and Devin was a great guide through the park. Gotta like a guy who doesn’t take himself too seriously. Also, I messed ip my booking days (came a day early) and they happily switched the time for me. All and all a really great experience !

"Fantastic experience with Nic!"

We were lucky that it was just the two of us on the trip (mother and 15 year old daughter) and we had Nic as our guide. She is the most amazingly funny, entertaining, knowledgeable and awesome guide you can find! She had so many funny stories to share and at the same time she was so attentive to our needs. I was a little bit uncomfortable going down Lombard street at first but she made me feel I was being looked after the whole time. Then at the end of the tour I went on the same street again and what a difference! Nic was also really professional at the same time - I asked her a question which she didn't know the answer to and during our break she actually looked up the information to make sure I got my answer. It may seem like a small thing but it shows how much she cares about doing a good job.

After doing a Segway tour in Barcelona a couple of years ago, I got addicted to it and was looking forward to another thrilling experience. This short tour at Fisherman's Wharf did not disappoint. The guide was excellent and spent a good 15-20 minutes on training and kept us engaged with his informative stories during the tour.
