5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Corey and Darnell gave us a wonderful Segway experience, from the fun training session to the informative and personal tour of Washington DC. Darnell is an excellent teacher, patient and encouraging. Corey is friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. He led the tour in such a way that we got time to spend at the various monuments and he was more than happy to answer our questions. We liked the fact that we were part of a small group (4). We saw other Segway tours that were more than twice the size. With the small size, Corey made an effort to tailor the information to our interests. We are in our 60s and the other couple was in their late 20s. We all had a good time and the Segways are really fun to use.

“Best thing in DC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

My husband and I were lucky enough to book this tour while on a recent trip to DC. Our tour guide Corey and his wife were amazing! They took us to see all the memorials and monuments after sundown. Along the way we got to learn more about each site and take a little break to hop off the segways and take a closer look. This was by far the highlight of our trip. BOOK THIS TOUR!!! You won't be disappointed! Its the only way to see all the monuments/memorials easily!

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Corey and Darnell were professional, fun, and made this a great experience. Much patience was shown to our group of slow learners (and one fast learner!). C and D made sure we had mastered the Segue basics before starting the tour. Corey's commentary along the way was interesting and informative. We loved this tour!

“cannot be better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

carey and darnell make the difference.
the key aspect is that, because the groups are small, they put emphasis on the safety aspect of riding a segway, just to have you ready to stop if a child cross your way......you must be able to stop promptly and without hesitation.
they got us ready for the adventure.

“The guides made all the difference!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

There are so many great Segway tour companies in DC, but Corey and his beautiful wife made ALL the difference! They turned up early, were prompt with email/phone communications, and were such warm and funny people.
I'm not exactly Braveheart when it comes to speed on wheels, but Corey put me at ease, and soon I was zooming along at the topspeed that the Segway would allow! My friend can't ride a bike, and was extremely nervous, but she was totally rocking it by the middle of our tour :) You shouldn't think that Segways are difficult to operate, or for extremely dexterous people, because it's pretty easy once Corey teaches you how. Plus, TRUST me, you wouldn't want to be legging it all around DC looking at all the monuments. It is QUITE a hike around.... this way you get to see everything in as short a time as possible, and not stress about time.
Totally enjoyed the tour, thanks guys! Come visit us in Singapore anytime! :)
