Let us help you feel like a local as we give you the best overview of one of San Diego's best gems.

What to Expect
Meet your private guide in Balboa Park and get comfortable riding a self-balancing electric Segway before setting off to explore the immense green space and cultural hub. Learn what makes the park a favorite of locals and visitors, while hearing its history and cruising past museums, plazas, sculpture gardens, and cafes. Visit a local artist’s workshop at the charming Spanish Art Village, and see distinctive Spanish-Colonial architecture leftover from the 1915 Panama-California Exposition. Connect with nature as you roll past gorgeous gardens, open spaces, and vista points with stellar canyon views. Scope out your favorite places to return to on your own, and ask all the questions you like on this private tour. Your tour ends in Balboa Park where it started.

We booked the tour with Bridgette and she was incredible. It is so much easier than traveling into downtown, parking there, wasteing time traveling to the park. She made it easy to find free parking, our tour started right outside the park, was private - just our small group.

My wife and I enjoyed our first segway tour. Bridgette gave us a lot of history about Balboa Park as we went from site to site. The park is beautiful. After the tour, we spent time walking around the park, having been introduced to the different attractions during our tour.
