“Fun time for all”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

I have done this tour a few times when family has come to town. It's a lot of fun, the staff has been very good for the most part, and it's a great way to see the sights of DC. As a native, I have had issues with a few of the "facts" the guides have thrown out there, but they are entertaining. The Segways are easy to ride and a lot of fun. Easy access from their headquarters. I would highly recommend this company to anyone new to the city, tourists or anyone else who just wants to have a couple of fun hours in the nation's capital.

“Really great time!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

The gentlemen who ran our tour were very fun and knowledgeable about the capital.

We were short on time and I have a healing knee at the moment, so the idea of walking around the National Mall (6 miles) was not something I was up for. But we really wanted to get the most out of our short stay.

We were lucky to have beautiful weather - spring time, lovely flowers everywhere. The guys were very professional. Gave us a 5 minute instruction (all anyone really needs) then some practice in the safety of the park and we're off!

The tour lasted about 2 hours and was wonderful. The only reason I didn't give them a "5" was that I wish we could have spent a little more time at each of the monuments. But we were pressed for time anyway so maybe next time.

By the way, they also have everyone wear bicycle helmets for safety and give everyone a bottle of water. Excellent time!

“Had a Blast!!!!”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Booked this trip a year ago and had to cancel at the last minute. Justin was kind enough to extend our gift certificate and we went this May. Tyler and Justin were friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and fun. We never rode Segways before, but with a quick lesson, they were so easy to ride. Practice in the park across the street before the tour was a great help as well. It was a hot day, so it was so much better than walking and we got to see the sights all over. If you want to stop and linger at the monuments, this tour is fast paced, and not the one to go on. However, it was great fun and the guides made it even better. I'm still referring to my husband as the "circus bear"!

“Save your feet - Take a Segway tour!”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

We took this tour with a group of friends - highly recommend! A great way to get about the Mall and see the sights you are interested in. Very easy to learn, tour guides were very conscientious about our safety and individual sight seeing requirements.

This tour was such a lot of fun! My hubby had a grin on his face the whole 2 hours as we sped along passing pedestrians. High fived a lot of school groups - kids are really geeked about the Segways.

Not our first time to DC, wish we had done this sooner!
