Full description
All tours begin with a 30-minute training session on how to operate the Segway. Watch a brief video and presentation, then receive one-on-one instruction from the experienced staff. Don't be nervous! Many of the visitors are first-time riders and most people get the hang of it within a few minutes.  Once everyone is comfortable, you will do a quick soundcheck and off you go!  The first stop is the White House, just across the street from your starting point! From there, continue to explore as many of the following sites as possible: US Treasury Blair House Constitution Gardens Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool Vietnam Veterans Memorial Korean War Memorial DC War Memorial Tidal Basin WWII Memorial Washington Monument Smithsonian Museums National Gallery of Art US Capitol Canadian Embassy Newseum National Archives US Navy Memorial FBI Building And more! Bring your camera! There is a bag on the Segway to carry along small personal possessions, but it is recommended that you leave larger purses and backpacks in the shop.

    This was a fun tour and our guide ( Chris) was awesome. He was very knowledgeable and shared many interesting facts. He was also patient with those of us who had never ridden a Segway, which, by the way, was amazingly easy and a ton of fun. This is a great way to see the National Mall and gain an overview of the monuments and memorials.

    I loved to ride a segway, it's easy, really cool and you can see lot's of places without getting tired of to much walk. The guides are really informative, they take care about everybody in the group, no one is left behind. The tour started on time, they gave us a training before and you are totally fine with that. I really recommend anyone to try it, is really fun.

    Justin was our tour guide...funny and knows his stuff! I prefer doing a Segway Tour from a 6-hour bus tour hands down. All information you need is on this tour. If there are any other questions with other sites we have not touched, just ask. For parking, there's a parking garage right next door to the tour place, very convenient.
