Fun self tour with GPS leading you

This was a really fun way to see a lot of sites in a short time! We rented the sit-down scooters with fat tires for 2 hours. We only stopped a few times for photos, so we easily got through the 2-hour route. Enjoyed going through Balboa park & seeing the ship museum. It was tough a few times in traffic, but we made it. Their 2-seater cars looked fun (driver & the passenger sits behind them). Place was easy to find & folks were very nice. GPS worked fine, and they told some stories along the way too. Recommend if you are comfortable riding alongside traffic. You can use bike lanes a lot, so it wasn’t that big a deal to us. Fun!
Amazing GPS tour

Fun, but...

The scooters we rented were great. We did a 2-hour tour and saw a lot of San Diego. The scooters are equipped with GPS and a voice guide that kept us on course and explained different landmarks as we pass them. They had fat tires that made it easy to ride once you got to feel for it. Unfortunately, one of our two scooters started losing power about 3/4 of the way into the trip. It almost didn't make it up the last small hill and then completely died about two blocks from the drop off. That would have been understandable, but the person that checked us in accused us of going off course and that's why the battery died. He dialed back his tone when he saw that we didn't like being accused of something we didn't do, but it put a damper on the experience as a whole. If not for the poor customer service, I would have rated this trip a 4 or even a 5 because it was that much fun. However, customer service is part of the experience and this particular employee blew it... And he knew it.
The team was enthusiastic...

The team was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. They recommended options that actually made for a better experience and just not upsold us. They ensured that we were comfortable and had all our questions were answered prior to hitting the road. Really enjoyed it and planning to do it again.
Fun, fun, fun!

My husband & I booked this tour during an anniversary trip. We had such a blast that when we got back home, we bought two similar scooters!
Fun in the sun
