This is a great way to orientate yourself when you arrive. A two hour tour of the main sights lets you get to grip with the layout of the city and the live audio guide/commentary is an added bonus. Great fun! Do it, you won't be disappointed!

I love doing tours on a Segway; you can cover so much more ground than you can on foot and usually you get a guide who knows the history inside and out.

This is our second time with Capital Segway, and it was as good as the last time (last year). A lovely, well run experience!

We are a group of experienced Segway-gliders from Segway in Norway, who has been traveling around testing different operators. This is by far the best operator til now, with a thorough safety demo and test, tips before obstacles along the route and a exemplary way to lead us through traffic. With good audio equipment, our guide George gave us an... More

I would recommend doing a tour your first day in DC as it gives you ideas of what to visit on foot. These guys were very professional. If you've never been on a Segway (like my son and I), it is very easily learned and in no time you are very comfortable. We thought it was the most fun we'd... More

We had a blast on the Segway! Greg did a stand up job in 30degree weather showing us the sites. Can't wait to try another Segway your. They are so much fun and easy to operate! Would highly recommend this tour company. Great value for the money.

First time on a Segway, so was a little apprehensive about how I would be able to whiz around and not run someone over or break a leg (though there's no getting around how silly you'll feel that you look at first!) The guys at the shop gave ample instruction and training time before we ventured out on the tour.... More

Super teamwork by the tour guides. This is THE Segway tour because of their safe approach and instant communication with guests. A beautiful but chilly day was made fabulously fun and informative.

This is a must for anyone wanting to see the sights of Washington. The Segway's are really easy to get used to, just takes 5-10mins for most people (key is to just relax into it and to focus on feeling your movement, as it responds to you). My wife was really nervous about it, but within 5 mins she was... More
