We were a party of 5 adults who had never ridden a Segway and our group also included 2 adults who had experience. We were concerned about our abilities to learn to ride and watched you tube to see if we could pick up some hints.

Our guide Cynthia was fantastic. She is an Art History major and definitely has a love for the historical art and architecture. She took time and before we left on the tour, we were all able to start, stop, and turn. We spent 3 hours touring downtown streets with Cynthia telling us about all the buildings, history, and keeping us safe in the traffic. We had a blast and gained insight as to where we wanted (needed) to go in the following days.

We will be back and will ask for Cynthia.

...then we found out how simple and fun Segways are to ride. “We” are two 60-something women who had never ridden one before. The staff at City Segway Tours did a great job acclimating us to the Segway and off we went traversing city streets, sidewalks and the Mall.
Our tour included all the famous spots around the Capital Mall, the White House and the Capital building. We stopped at the US Navy museum for a restroom and water break about halfway through our 3 hour tour.
The Segways had a secure pouch for our water bottles and small purses and we were provided with bike helmets and sunscreen. Our group included 8 tourists and 1 guide who communicated with us via a walkie-talkie strapped to the handlebar. Two members of our group took spills, one on the crowded sidewalk in front of the White House when the person in front of her (her husband) stopped abruptly. Luckily, no one was hurt.
The second fall took place on the sandy Capital Mall walkway when the youngest member of our group decided to test the limits of the Segway’s acceleration power and took a header over the handlebar. The result for him was some road rash and embarrassment.
Since our stay in DC was a short two days, this was a fantastic way to see the sights and get our bearings. We were able to enjoy at least a glimpse of the important places with a knowledgeable guide and later returned to see a few of them in-depth. The price was reasonable and the fun immeasurable.

When family came to visit, I wanted to try a Segway tour - I thought this would make touring the same places more interesting for me as I am currently living in the surrounding area. I was right! This was a great experience. The tour guides made all the difference - they were patient, kind and knowledgeable (both went to or was going to Georgetown university in their International Affairs program ). Highly recommend this as a way to get around and see the sights.

I did the walking tour of the Capitol building and US Supreme Court and Congressional Library with my family. The tour went for three hours and was fabulous. The guide (Thomas) was a wealth of knowledge on all things American history and world history. The pace was easy to keep up with and the buildings were fabulous. I have nothing negative to say about this tour at all!

Having done the Segway tours in New Orleans and Chicago, I was keen to do this one in DC. It was the same company and once again, the training and orientation is fast and efficient. The weather was atrocious - absolutely pouring with rain, yet our guide was still smiling and happy to show us the sights. Well recommended.
