We had a blast!

Sean McKeough gave us a great tour! We loved every minute of it...and felt safe under his direction. He provided great information about the area and shared our pleasure in the great climate of San Diego compared with northern climates. We'll look for segway tours again when we travel.

Great fun!

Great way to see the city! The Segways were easy to use and such an easy way to get around. Our tour guide George was excellent...he knew his stuff, was friendly and entertaining and made sure everybody was comfortable and safe all the time. I would definitely recommend this tour!
