This was my second time doing a Segway tour, but my first with Capital Segway tours. It was a great experience, especially since I was able to do a comparison. PROS: - Earpieces, so you can always hear the guide even if you aren't at the front of the pack, very key! - Two guides for our group, one at... More

Segway tours are the best way to see any big city. It’s a wonderful feeling – zipping around in the crisp air and the front row seat to the city with tour guides and you don’t have to deal with parking, buses or throngs of tourists. Plus it’s fun!! The tour stops at all of the highlights you will want... More

We chose to do the segway tour because it was probably the fastest way to see all the attractions. It was our first time riding segways so we were a bit apprehensive, but the instructors did a really good job teaching and it felt like second nature in no time. Surprisingly, I felt pretty safe traveling along the roads in... More

Don't be late! I had signed up for a 10am and was on track to arrive at 9:50. Having ridden a Segway before, I didn't foresee a problem. At 9:40 I get a call from Justin asking me where I am and informing me that everyone is waiting for me. I confirm that this is the 10am tour to which... More

Absolutely fantastic tour. Our guide George had a comprehensive knowledge of the sights and the entire team were more than welcoming. Having never used a Segway my wife and I were pleasantly surprised in how easy it is. Not something to be feared!

We were able to squeeze in a tiny bit of time after a conference and Justin was flexible in accompanying our needs. Upon arrival Chris and Justin took great care of us and we were on our way. Chris lead an incredibly informative and entertaining tour. He was engaging and confident. We felt lucky to have happened upon Capital Segway.

My husband and I found the Capital Segway tour to be an unexpected highlight to our visit to the city. It was easy to get used to the Segway quickly and what a perfect way to cover many miles around the capital and mall area in 2 hours! The evening tour was perfect for us. As we are both history...

What an awesome experience! I wasn't crazy about the $65 per person fee and tip(*which my driver totally earned) but it was worth it! The segway's are pretty fun, once you get used to them. There's not much you won't see, except the Statue of Liberty! ;) My tour guide George, (seriously), had very interesting stories. Although he was dry,... More

Several members of my family had an unscheduled day in DC and we decided to go on the Segway Tour. After practicing briefly in the store, we went across the street into a park and we all practiced and figured out how to control the apparatus and feel comfortable. Then we headed out, and took a 2 hour tour around... More
