Hi we are arriving in San Diego in august -myself, husband and 2 sons (21 and 16)

is it best to drive around the area in a rental car or should we do a Segway/ or electric bike tour?? We have never done segways or electric bikes

Any advise greatly appreciated... what sights are a must??

I'm not sure if your question is about all of San Diego or just about the neighborhood of La Jolla.

I personally dislike Segways because they are allowed on sidewalks (they are considered pedestrians in California) and I often have to step aside or even off the sidewalk onto the street to let them pass. The guides are usually very polite and friendly, but their charges are often newbies who don't always have their Segways under control. Having said all this, I think it may be a good idea to do the Segway tour since you get to see La Jolla with a guide who is pretty knowledgeable about the town. I would not drive around in La Jolla in a car. Park the car and walk around.

Oops! I didn't read your question closely enough. The Segway vs. electric bike tour depends on how comfortable you are on one or the other. The electric bikes will be on the street.

The bikes would be the safer route.
