I was a little hesitant in using a Segway for the first time, but within minutes I found it was easy to maneuver . My family and I will usually take a tour bus to see the sights whenever we find ourselves in a city for the first time. However, I would highly recommend touring with a Segway before deciding as to whether or not to take a bus tour. Two suggestions: if you have already seen a sight (we saw Capitol Hill the day before), let your guide know so s/he doesn't bring you to the same sight and you may have more time for the other sights. Also, some of the tourist magazines/flyers have a coupon which gives you a few dollars off. Let the person who books your reservation know when you reserve a place in order to take advantage of the discount.

We just used Bike and Roll for a monument tour over Thanksgiving week for our extended family group of 16. From 8 year olds to 70 year olds - we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. The monuments can be quite a walk and by car, parking is a royal pain. This was such a pleasant way to see just about all of the monuments and enjoy the scenery.

The company was easy to deal with and our guide was friendly.

Bicycling around Washington might not be high up on my list of things to do as there are lots of people and lots of traffic but the tour pretty much worked despite those conditions.

Would definitely recommend.

We picked this company to rent bikes from due to tripadvisor reviews. We were staying at the Gaylord National and took their shuttle bus (round trip $20 per person) and were dropped off at the Old Post Office. We were close to the Bike and Roll's National Mall location. We rented a tandem bike and one bike with a trailer attached to it. The guys renting the bikes were very helpful, gave recommendations of where to go and the bikes were in good condition. Anytime we go back to DC, we will be renting bikes from them!

After buying a groupon for an upcoming trip to D.C., my husband and 6 year old daughter showed up on a Sunday morning to rent our bikes for the day. Their National Mall location is extremely convenient, right at the top of the Federal Triangle metro stop, and just a block from the Mall. They were extremely friendly and helpful getting us set up with bikes, and gave us some tips on hidden things within the monuments, and cool ways to experience them. We got a tandem style bike for one of us and our daughter, so we didn't have to worry about her in traffic, or getting tired depending on how far we rode. Very comfortable bikes. This is such a great way to see all the monuments, go at your own pace, stop to snap pictures, and continue on your way when ready. They give you everything you need, and even after they forgot to put a cable lock in one of the bike pouches, we just gave them a quick call and they promptly met us at our current location with the cable lock. Great way to see D.C.

We have lived in Northern Virginia for over 20 years and we never spend enough time enjoy the sites of DC. This was our first time riding a Segway and it was very easy to learn. Our guide, Nick, was very knowledgeable and we even learned some new facts about a few of the sites. So, if you live local or you are visiting, this is the best way to see DC.
