This activity will end right where it started.
Zip around Old San Juan by Segway as you explore its top attractions on this 2-hour small-group tour. Take in incredible views of San Juan Bay, Castillo San Felipe del Morro and San Cristobal Fort, among others, as you learn the fascinating history of this 500-year-old settlement first started by the Spanish Empire.

Meet your group at Pier 2 in Old San Juan, the tour’s departure point. Your meeting time will vary depending on the tour option you select, leaving at either 10am, 1pm or 4pm. First grab your helmet and get a safety lesson on using the two-wheeled Segway from your guide, and take some time to get familiar with starting and stopping. From there you’re ready to roll, heading out into the streets of this picturesque colonial district.

Move along the area’s cobblestone streets and colorful facades, stopping for photos and for a military history lesson from your guide. Soon you’ll reach Darsenas Square, which provides panoramic views of modern San Juan and its bay, and then see the remains of the San Juan Gate, where you'll hear about the crucial role the city’s harbor once played in maritime defense.

Continue your ride along the hilly streets, stopping to admire the imposing walls of La Muralla, a 3-mile (5 km) long and 140-foot (43 m) high barrier that once served as the linchpin of Old San Juan’s military defenses. 

Your tour then moves past some additional monuments, including the Cathedral of San Juan Bautista, site of the remains of famous Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon, who searched for the Fountain of Youth, as well as the Ballaja infantry barracks and the cannon battery of La Perla, which was eventually turned into a slaughterhouse. After a few more attraction stops, your tour finishes back at the departure point.

Not a good excursion for first-time Segway riders
Karen_C
, May 2022
There were 4 people in my party with varying degrees of experience riding a Segway. This excursion is not good for first timers. The description should warn riders that the path includes steep hills that they must hold while allowing cars to pass. The guide was using ramps to simulate during the orientation and quickly lost patience with the two who were struggling to hold this makeshift hill. Without any warning or discussion he dismissed two of us who he thought couldn't do it and was ready to proceed with the other two who frankly were uncomfortable with the "test." I am planning to request a refund as none of us was interested in going after this ordeal.

This tour requires core control and good leg shape. The training session is our tool to assess if participants are physically able to complete the experience safely. Choosing activities according to physical ability is responsibility of the customer. Please don’t book this tour if your balance is compromised or if your legs are fragile due to surgery. Segway is not a medical device.

We had a lot of fun on this tour! Our guide was very thorough in teaching us how to operate the Segways. He made sure the helmets and Segways were clean and disinfected. Once everyone had the basics down we were off. We were treated to a very thorough and informative tour of old San Juan. Would definitely do it again. A few bits of advice: old San Juan streets are super bumpy! I have joint pain and OW! Also, if you're like me and *ahem* gifted in the chest area, wear a good supportive chest supportive device. Support is the key word here!

We have done Segway tours in Seattle, Atlanta, galveston, San Francisco and have never had a better guide. He was knowledgeable about the city, history, and a kind and a wonderful teacher. We cannot say enough nice things about Jose.

Much easier way to see the city … if I had to walk all of that uphill I would have seen a quarter of it … Jose was very patient teaching us to use the Segway’s up hill … was one of the better tours of a city I have ever had

The ride on the Segway was great. If I could recommend a change, it would be to have a relaxing stop on the tour for a drink, an ice cream or a time to relax with a scenic view for 20 Minutes

There was a mix up with directions and we missed the tour!! They did not work to help us reschedule. I have booked with Viator many times and never had a vendor not work with me for my tours.

Sad indeed. The reality is that you where a no show, We offered our schedule when contacted after the tour time and it didn’t had a time that suit you. How is that we didn’t work with you?

Amazing tour and guide
Teniecha_C

I had a blast on this tour. Segways are so much fun. It took us about 5-10 minutes practicing with Juan and we were (almost) pros, lol. Juan was patient and very informative. It's a great way to see old San Juan and get some history and culture. Juan is a veteran and has several generations of his family from the island. I can't imagine a better tour guide. Also folks, touring a city by segway has to be the best way ever to get through those tight streets and inclines. Super pleased with my experience.

Segway in Old San Juan
Annelyse_F
, Jun 2021
This was such a fun excursion! Jose is an amazingly knowledgeable and professional guide that gave us such a great tour of Old San Juan on a Segway. There are lots of hills in Old San Juan and it can be pretty hot out there. This was such a neat way to see everything without worrying about the heat and the hills! Plus you get a wonderful education on the history of Puerto Rico. Our teens (19 and 16) loved this too! Jose gives a lesson before the tour starts so you don’t have to know how to ride a Segway. Once you get the hang of it, it is so fun! I highly recommend this. It was one of our favorite outings on our trip to Puerto Rico!

Horrible!
Riley_H
, May 2021
We were unable to ride the segway as they said my family was over the weight limit. They would not refund our money because they said I confirmed we were the appropriate weight when I booked-which I didn't. I wouldn't have booked it and paid over $400 dollars knowing we were over the designated weight. Not only were we discriminated against because of our weight they kept our money and embarrassed my family. This place and their practices were disgusting. Disappointed that viator allows this to happen....never using viator services again.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Horrible. When you filled the weight of participants, they where all below the 260lbs Segway manufacturer limit. When you showed for the tour, you scaled above the limit. Can’t see how our practices are disgusting.
