San Francisco has gone electric scooter crazy and we have the most kick butt scooters available.

Jump on and blast off with our 1.5 Hour Electric Scooter Tour that wheels through Fisherman’s Wharf and then out to the San Francisco Bay waterfront. Guests enjoy great views of San Francisco Bay, Golden Gate Bridge and the City Skyline.

After a brief recap session on how to safely operate the electric scooter, you will explore San Francisco’s Waterfront for approximately 1.5 hours. Tours are limited to 10 riders per tour guide.

Your experienced and fun tour guide will narrate your experience through a compact single ear-bud sound system. Each guest is issued a compact radio receiver so they don’t miss a detail of what the guide is saying about each site seen on the tour. Numerous stops are made for Instagram worthy photos – so don’t forget your smartphone.

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Start near the Cable Car turn-around in Fisherman’s Wharf
  • Cruise by National Maritime Museum
  • Scoot near Municipal Pier and Aquatic Park
  • See Historic sailing ships at Hyde Street Pier
  • Lean about Ghirardelli Square – home of delicious chocolate
  • Enjoy Spectacular views of Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate Bridge along the Bay Trail
  • Quick stop at the Warming Hut on pathway to the Golden Gate Bridge
  • Picture perfect stop at base of North tower of Golden Gate Bridge at civil War-era brick fortress Fort Point
  • Return loop through Crissy Field and Marina Green
  • NOTE: Tour does not include entry into museums or admission fee attractions. Every tour makes numerous stops for photos.

Our goal is to let guests enjoy riding an eco-friendly electric scooter, see more sights than they could cover on foot and have lots of fun. An added benefit for the environment is a few less tour buses on the city streets each day.

Our electric Scooter tour along the waterfront was wonderful. The Scooters were easy to use and very quick to get used to. Having a walkie-talkie earpiece enabled us to get information while on the route. Highly recommended.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS

Who Can Ride a Scooter? Our Rider Requirements

Safety is very important to us: All guests must be age 16 or older and weight no more than 290 lbs. (131 kilos).  Under age 18 must tour with parent or guardian. (Age requirement is current CA state law)

Scooter riding is not recommended for pregnant women. Unfortunately, pregnant guests will not be permitted to participate due to fall risk.

NOTE: If you have never ridden a bike this may not be the activity for you. Riding a scooter requires side to side balance similar to riding a bike. IMPORTANT: Due to time limits we CANNOT provide riders with no previous bike riding experience with  full training on riding and most importantly balancing on a scooter. 
The equipment recap and skills overview session provides riders with a quick overview of the scooter controls, knowledge, and experience needed to safely operate the Scooters. You will  be guided through a low speed ride and an emergency stop to ensure a safe, enjoyable experience.

An electric scooter is not an ideal mode of touring for people with some mobility issues. All guests must be able to easily and quickly step on and off the scooter platform without any assistance, which requires physical abilities similar to climbing and descending stairs without assistance or use of a handrail.

On some hills the scooter will require a bit of “kick” to maintain momentum. The electric motors are helpful on the hills but are not strong enough to propel heavier guests up some slopes. Be prepared to kick.

If you book a tour and any of your guests do not meet the minimum age / weight criteria they will not be allowed on the tour and you will not be given a refund or rescheduled.

Due to fall risk this activity is NOT recommended for some guests age 70 and up or guests with recent surgery, mobility/ motor control issues and other disabilities. Please call to discuss prior to booking.

Be able to stand on the Scooter for a period of 1-2 hours.

Wear the helmet and safety vest that is provided with the tour.

Review and sign a liability waiver.

Respect road signs, pedestrians, bikes and cars for a safe enjoyable ride.

Complete the scooter rider recap.

Pleas arrive 15 minutes early to check in and be ready for fun!

What model/type of Electric Scooters do you use?

We use 2 models of Electric Scooters:

We operate tours on two of the top end scooter models available. No matter the design/motor size on some hills the scooter will require a bit of “kick” to maintain momentum. The electric motors are helpful on the hills but are not strong enough to propel heavier guests up some slopes. Be prepared to kick.

How do I learn to ride a Electric Scooter?

How do I learn to ride an Electric Scooter?
The tour time includes a very brief recap/training session on the scooters we use on the tours.  Previous bicycle riding experience is highly suggested. NOTE: If you have never ridden a bike this may not be the activity for you. Riding a scooter requires side to side balance similar to riding a bike. The equipment recap and skills overview session provides riders with a quick overview of the scooter controls, knowledge, and experience needed to safely operate the Scooters. You will  be guided through a low speed ride and an emergency stop to ensure a safe, enjoyable experience.
 
IMPORTANT: Due to time limits we CANNOT provide riders with no previous bike riding experience with  full training on riding and balancing on a scooter.

NOTE: On some hills the scooter will require a bit of “kick” to maintain momentum. The electric motors are helpful on the hills but are not strong enough to propel heavier guests up some slopes. Be prepared to kick.

Training time is part of the overall tour time. During the busy summer season training time may be slightly longer. Riders are trained on safe scooter operation, emergency stops and our “Share the Road” policy.  Training time varies with group size and skill level. We reserve the right to change the size or routing of the tour due to weather, city events, festivals, construction and street closure, etc.

All riders are required to wear a helmet and bright colored reflective safety vest.

Payments are fully refundable if the reservation is cancelled 3 days – 72 hours or more prior to the scheduled tour time.

We have a limited amount of Scooters available for tours. We will reserve a scooter(s) and schedule a tour guide specifically for your reservation.

No shows and late arrivals are charged in full and will not be rescheduled.
Your reservation payment WILL NOT be refunded or tour rescheduled for any reason within 72 hours of your scheduled tour time.

Safety and complete training for all of our guests is our 1st priority and we will not rush training to accommodate late arrivals.

Rider Weight and Age Requirements:

Guest age is regulated by CA State law (18 and up) and max weight is a safety issue.

We DO NOT offer a refund or a reschedule for underage gusts.

Are Tours Cancelled Due to Weather?

San Francisco is famous for the fog and chilly summer days!
Our tours DO operate in fog, light rain and on windy chilly days.
We always suggest multiple layers of warm clothing for San Francisco outdoor actives.

Summer afternoons can be in the 50’s.
We have rain gear, warm jackets and gloves for those infrequent rainy days or chilly afternoons.

Scooters are designed to run in any weather.

Weather reschedules or refunds: In the rare case we cancel due to a severe rain we will offer space on an alternate date or time (if space is available.) or a full refund.

We generally wait until one hour prior to the tour departure time for most rain cancels. Rain along the California coast is very fickle and we end up operating almost every tour on rainy days.

Helpful Hint: Please make sure we have a good phone number to reach you if the weather forecast calls for rain.

There is no storage on the scooters. Small backpacks are OK. Please leave bulky backpacks at home.
