“Just do it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

My wife and i looked at aniother Segway operator but chose Private DC due to the individualized attention. It was a wise choice. We couldn't have been more pleased with the attention from our guide, Corey, and the information of the sites we saw. Tthere really is no other way to see DC. And riding the Segway is a blast! Corey is patient and knowledgeable and makes you feel comfortable. what else is there to ask for?

“Up Close and Personal in D.C.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

Corey leads a terrific tour of D.C.!!. We saw parts of the city we would not have seen with our limited timeframe. Our photos are THE BEST, and we made a photo album including every segway shot. Thanks Corey!

We were surprised to find a stranger on our PRIVATE tour, but he was a good companion and we enjoyed his company. Corey has a "black history" tale to tell that can make you feel a bit uncomfortable as a caucasion with no authority over the past wrongs,

Overall, well worth the price of a ticket!

Thanks Sheryl. We are so happy you enjoyed your Washington DC Segway Tour with us. We are happy to know that we were able to make your trip to DC the Best. What makes us stand out from the rest is our focus on quality and detail. We try to go above and beyond our competition with our smaller groups and it pays off because we are able to cover every inch of the city in just a few hours. You are the most important thing to us and we are happy to go out of our way to capture nothing but the BEST photographs of you and your family. Capturing these moments means a lot to us, and we are happy that you appreciated them. Feel free to post them if you would like.

One of the challenges of delivering history in today’s age is that we have so much more to take into account in comparison to yesterday. Yesterday it was acceptable to present only one side, omit the rest, and move on. But today it has changed. Today’s history now includes Native American, African American, slavery, Civil War and so much more. Washington DC has so much history and we try to include all relevant facts that make our beautiful city what it is. We do admit that even though it may not always settle well we found that incorporating all aspects gives us a better understanding and a better appreciation for our country and our nation’s capital. All in all we appreciate your reply, and we appreciate you. We thank you again for choosing us and we wish you and the family peace and many Blessings. Cheers!

“Great way to see the city!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

We had a fantastic time on this tour with our guide, Corey. It was initially a bit more than what I wanted to spend but by the end, I felt that I got more than the value. It was a ton of fun and a fantastic way to see all the important sites of the city but in a short amount of time. I definitely recommend this company, tour guide, and fun way to see te sights.

“YOU MUST DO THIS TOUR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2011

Our family of 5 did this tour with Corey In December 2011. We had a blast. Corey is the BEST. If we had another day in town, we would have gone back to do it again. Dont book a Segway tour with any other company. Private DC Segway tours ROCKS!!

Hello Accalia, We had a blast!. Thanks for choosing us for your day trip to DC. We wish you could have come back again too. But dont worry we will definitely put aside a few Segways for you all when you come back. But until then, much appreciation and peace to you and the family!

“A great way to tour Washington, with an energetic, helpful guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2011

I was initially skeptical about taking the tour, but the guide (Corey) was absolutely wonderful and the experience just delightful. It took about 2-3 minutes to get comfortable on the Segway, and the tour was outstanding. We are longtime DC natives and had never taken such a tour, but are happy to recommend it to everyone. A great and fun way to zip around the mall and see all the monuments.
