from The Official Golden Gate Park Segway Tour
A combination of designated trails, bike paths and low speed-light traffic streets are used to conduct the guided tour of the Park. After a 40 minute training on how to safely operate the Segway, you'll explore the sights of Golden Gate Park for two hours.
