    All round great. Solo visitor from U.K., good group. Team made me feel comfortable in riding the Segway before setting off, don’t feel rushed at all Tour itself is great. We had 2 guides who each knew their stuff. Got to see tons of The Mall areas, spent 15 minutes parked at the Lincoln memorial as well so we could explore Would highly recommend

    Excellent tour to get a quick overview of the National Mall. We were all new to Segway riding and got a good introduction and felt safe all along the tour. Great experience, rounded up by two nice guides who gave interesting info on DC and monuments, and excellent recommendation for dining.

    This is a fantastic option for a fun jaunt through DC, great value on the dollar. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the city and gave you individual instruction on how to operate the Segway. They were open to questions and would tailor the presentation based on what the guests were interested in. Highest recommendation.
