Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Amazing tour and guide

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

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!

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.

It was very fun. The Segway was easy to learn. The tour showed us a lot and we got to do more because we weren’t walking. We had a 13 year old daughter and two adults. All did it well

Jose, our host was a great instructor and explained briefly about the history of various important buildings on our path thru the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan. He chronigically explained the timeline of various events from the 1500 til present. Good times.

The tour guide acted like he didnt want to do the tour. Barely gave us enough time to practice inside the small office. My cousin couldn't get on the segway so we had to cancel losing $240.00. The guide said he would make notes on giving us a refund. We will see. We weren't offered water, sunscreen or a place for our valuables so I am thinking he just didn't want to do the tour for just 2 people.

Greetings, when customers don’t show confidence and express fear about using the Segway, our staff is required not to push as this is the type of rider is prone to fall during the tour. Please consult with your party prior the tour for their full willingness to operate a Segway

Disappointed..Spent $30 on our Uber ride to Old San Juan to find no one at the Segway.Tour office. Waited and then called the agency we booked through. They texted back that the individual had a motorcycle incident on the way in and couldnt make the tour. Trip was cancelled.

They took my money and We never was able to get a tour. They said we had to be a certain weight was over that weight and they did not give money back.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2021
Greetings, It is very sad. We asked in the reservation the participants weight due to the manufacturer restriction for Segway. If you input a weight below the limit the reservation is confirm. If the participant shows up above the limit, we can’t admit or refund
