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.

Nicest people! Our guide Preston was very pleasant, patient, and funny. Riding the Segways was super fun and very easy! You can't help but have fun and smile while riding around on one. I recommend the longer tours for the riding time.

I booked this, on the assumption of that the price would mean we have a full and in-depth tour of San Diego. Whilst we got to see most of the city, there was a lack of information during the tour. I would book again but not for $149 each.

Dear Mr. Buck, It was a pleasure hosting you here in San Diego. I really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback and being so open with us. I looked back and saw that you ended up having a private tour with Preston who is really the most popular guide here. We always try to shape the tour around your likes and desires and maybe Preston thought you were more interested in a fun ride than all of the history. Either way I will let him know this feedback and we will learn and grow from it. I just want you to know that we take it to heart. Please keep in mind that we offer our tours every hour on the hour and also that you were the only 2 guests on the tour as opposed to our competition that runs 2 tours a day with huge groups. I'm glad you felt overall that it was a good experience and we would love to host you again. Just let me know when you are back in town or in LA where we also have an office so I can make this 4 a 5 for you with our excellent customer service. We hope you'll come and see us again soon! All The Best, Kenneth

This was my second tour with Another Side. I took my 14 yr old nephew and we had a great time. I requested Preston and he did not disappoint. We will be back!
