We decided to take a Segway tour of The National Mall in order to cover alot of ground in a far shorter time than walking would have taken. Our guide was Jen and she was fantastic! I was a little nervous about riding the Segway at first, but Jen was great, and after a few minutes practice I felt very... More

Not every company is qualified to be associated with the Smithsonian... Bike & Roll proves just how good you have to be. From the tour guide (our guide was Andy) and his instructions about how to ride a Segway, to his knowledge, the excellent shape of the equipment... this special tour is far beyond what you would expect. There were... More

Stop messing about reading reviews and go get this activity booked right now. Highlight of my time in DC by a country mile. The guide was excellent and not super stressed if you had a little fun along the way on the segways. The tour itself is comprehensive and informative covering the entire length of the mall. S Do it.

Great tour. Andy, our guide, was fantastic, really knowledgeable and made the tour fun. That's all I have to say but there is a 100 character minimum.

There are many choices for Segways in DC, but the one at the Smithsonian given by Bike And Roll is the best. Our guide, Andy, was a history major and knew all kinds of neat facts and stories. He was also into architecture so we got some good info on that too. The Segways were easy to ride and a... More

We did the Smithsonian Segway tour and it was fabulous. The guide, Andy, was extremely knowledgeable and professional. It was the first time on a Segway and we had a blast. Andy tailored the tour to our interest and even arranged to for us to tour a couple special locations. It was the best money spent!

I was in DC in December 2013 and it was freezing cold (especially for an Aussie!). My partner and I had purchased a Groupon for the Smithsonian Segway Tour. There were only four of us, plus the guide, on the tour, so we got plenty of attention when learning to ride the segway and it was easy to keep up... More

This is the way to go to see Washington, DC monuments. We booked a 2 pm Segway tour for 3 hrs. It was so much fun. We had no problem learning how to maneuver them. There were only the 3 of us, me, hubby and our 22 yr old son. Lee was our guide and he was so informative. We... More
