My husband and I booked this tour but were lucky enough to be the only two people booked in for that slot, so ended up having a private tour with George who immediately put us at rest and made us feel welcome. After a short intro and practice getting used to the segways (which couldn't be easier to pick up)... More

The main problem was that the tour was not very informative. It was my first time in DC and I felt that I'm not getting enough information about the city in general and in particular about the things we were seeing. The tour guide was very knowledgeble but for some reason didn't share much of it unless someone asked a... More

I recommend Capital Segway tours to anyone visiting Washington, DC or the locals who want to try something different :-) Adeel is an amazing, very knowledgeable and funny young man, the best tour guide! I discovered that the perfect way to see DC is on a Segway and I highly recommend Capital Segway. The tour was more fun with Adeel's... More

I have been in many Segway Tours around the world and this one had something unique, we were given audio equipment so the guide could explain everything with out having to yell. We were 28, everything went perfect. I recommend Capital Segway tours, they are very professional. You won regret it.

Definitely take this tour! You see all the major attractions (except the Jefferson because it's so out of the way), including the White House, Lincoln, World War. You actually ride on the streets of DC in the bike lane too. Pretty fun! Segway's are easy to ride and even though I'm coordinated, I was a bit nervous but got the... More

This company gave a great Segway tour. The guide was excellent, helpful, and knowledgeable about the area. The facility was clean and well-equipped with clean restrooms and cubby holes to store your belongings that don't fit in the Segway's small basket. When you just can't walk anymore, segways are the perfect solution! So much fun.

We had seen other people riding around on Segways and thought it would be a neat way to see D.C. Riding a Segway is pretty difficult! I am a 23 year old female and thought I wouldn't have any issues.. Boy was I wrong. I struggled from the beginning and didn't really trust the machine. Our tour guide advised us... More

Natalie, our your guide, is a history major so she was great with the commentary. The segs were a lot of fun and easy to learn. Great way to see all the memorials up close without all the walking.

What a great way to see a part of Washington D. C. Segway's are easy to learn to ride and fun. This is a good way to sample different parts of the city and decide where you would like to spend more time exploring at length. Highly recommend you try it. Guides are knowable and watch for your safety.

I had never driven a Segway before and wasn't sure I even wanted to try. I'm very glad I did. Capital Segway is located in the ground floor lobby of an office building right in the heart of DC. Training was thorough and fairly fast. The group of 5-6 and our tour guides were out the door and cruising within... More
