A friend and I travelled to Washington DC in the 2nd week of september and a month or so before arriving we booked the DC Safari (2 hour segway tour) online. The office was quite hard to find but eventually we saw a sign leading to the office. On arriving, we checked in and found out we were the only... More

A "Capitol Tour" - first time on a Segway and first time to see many of the attractions close up!!! Matt was a great instructor and tour guide - fun sense of humor, very knowledgeable. The group was just the right size (6). Matt takes good photos, too, and that was a nice plus. They have several different tours, and... More

Thanks to Matt we had a brilliant twilight tour of the Mall and the monuments. We would thoroughly recommend seeing them this way as it saves a lot of driving and shoe leather.

My tour guide from segs in the city, Adam, was friendly, helpful, and pretty funny which made the tour that much better. Adam even stopped and bought me a bottle of water half way through the tour. He even took my pictures on my phone for me every stop. The tour its self was amazing but the staff on top... More

I cannot stress enough how much we enjoyed our DC tour courtesy of Segs in the City. We are a family of four ( 2x teenage kids) and we covered everything we wanted to see in a fantastic 3 hour trip. Once John, our guide, had accustomed us to the uses of the Segway, it was plain sailing. It took... More

This is a great way to see the city at your own pace and not get tired. What we liked about it is that you have flexibility and customization. There were 4 of us. We could stay longer at a place or shorter. Tour guide Matt was knowledgeable. Wife was surprised when he told us he was a recent hire.... More

We found the website online and prices seemed quite reasonable compared to the alternatives. We signed up for the 1.5 hour tour which was perfect. Cameron was our tour guide - he was fantastic. Other segway tours are stop-and-go as the tour talks about each monument. With Segs in the City, they provide a bluetooth headset so the tour guide... More

Very relaxed and humorous, he was a great guide that not only have us historical facts but loads of... More

Wonderful! I was going to take a walking tour, but so glad I chose this instead. We saw and learned so much in a relatively short time. Our guide, Cameron, was great. He imparted tons of information, with the perfect touch of humor. Couldn't have been better! Shout out to Noah, too. He wasn't my guide, but I was impressed... More
