There is always a challenge with Segway tours. I have done these tours on other cities and dealing with motorists/pedestrians is a challenge. Especially in a city like DC, you need to be well led. The Segs in the City team did a wonderful job for my family. We had a wednesday afternoon tour and our tour guide was Kara.... More

What a great way to see the wonderful sites in Washington DC. The tour was an hour and a half and we covered a lot of ground which meant we were able to stop at lots of sites. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and I enjoyed every minute of it! I would highly recommend using this tour company. :-)

Riding a Segway was fun. I did the 1.5hr tour and it was ok (a very quick zip past some main sites). Biggest disappointment was that despite what the website still currently states, this tour does not stop at Jefferson memorial - unfortunately this was my main reason for booking this tour. When questioned about this I was told 'we... More

Thank you for your review and comments regarding our service. Having investigated the issues that you mention it appears that your reservation was made over 6 months before the tour, during which time we have changed our tour and location. As was explained to you on the day there have been additional barriers put up at the Jefferson that prevent... More

Sunday June 8th 2014 I decided to take a Segway tour in Washington DC. A quick search showed me several possibilities and Segs in the City looked like the best tour in town. But to be honest, it was a bit of a disappointment. The tour was scheduled to leave at 10 AM, but due to a late arrival, we... More

Jon was our guide for a 2.5 hour tour of the major monuments. We've been on Segways before and love them as a faster way of getting around a new city. The area toured was great and the private time allowed at the various monuments was good. Jon provided some insights into the area but there was a lot of... More

This was an awesome tour and so much fun! We were able to see TONS of monuments and attractions and it was a breeze riding the Segway. Not only does it allow you to cruise around much quicker than walking but the Segways were such a blast to ride. We had John as our tour guide and he was great,... More

Had a great day out with John, very knowledgeable guide and we had a ball!! A great setup, just beware the conflicting info from the website vs booking confirmation as the old post office has just closed. Highly recommend these guys though!!
