“A "must do", even for locals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Having watched people "Segwaying" in DC and other cities, we decided to give it a try, even though as locals, we know the DC sights by heart. Our guide, Will, was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and cheerful. And, very concerned about safety. Riding the Segway was easy -- sort of like skiing and riding a motorcycle at the same time, but with much less effort. It became intuitive after about ten minutes. City Segway Tours is a very professional outfit. Overall, an excellent experience. This will be our go to activity when we are entertaining out of town visitors.

“DC by Segway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

We had a great time touring around DC with the City Segway Tour. Our guide, Kyle, did a great job in familiarizing all of his guest on how to operate the segway and his anecdotal comments about DC were very interesting. It is a great way to "jet" around DC and take in the sights. My wife and I have "toured" on segways before and highly recommend this fun and safe activity. Especially the City Segway Tours of Washington, DC.

Jack G,

Thanks for the review and for coming on tour with us! I'm excited to hear you enjoyed your time on tour with us and that you enjoyed Kyle as your tour guide. He's been with us a few years now and is certainly one of our best. We hope to see you on tour again soon and so we can work hard to get that 5th Star!

Thanks again and have a great day!

“Loved this tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Just completed a tour of DC with City Segway Tours and had an amazing time. Our guide was a history major at george washington, very knowledgeable. Loved riding the segways, if you haven't done a tour on a segway you should! Very easy to use, great instructors for first time users and a fun time to boot. I also did a segway tour with another group the next day with my girlfriend. The only thing I liked better is that they had an ear piece connected to the tour guide and gave more history as we rode along and not just when we stopped. I still recommend this tour group over the other.

“City Segway is the way to go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Recently, we had family visit from out of town and we decided to go sightseeing in Washington, DC. We could have spent the entire day walking to the monuments and not had enough time to visit all we wanted to see. So, we decided to go it on segways. IT WAS AWESOME! Riding the segways was comfortable, enjoyable, fun, and educational. Not only did we manuver through the crowds and streets safely and with ease, we also received a history lesson at each monument we visited courtesy of our well-informed guide "Mike." We had a blast on the segways and will definitely use them again. We did the 11 a.m. 2-hour tour on a Sunday with 7 people in our party. I highly recommend City Segway for your next visit to DC or any other city you visit.

“Once you get over how silly you look, it's amazing fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

Booked this tour on the recommendation of a friend and certainly weren't disappointed. We lucked out and managed to get a tour with only the two of us even though the two previous tours had been fully booked. Our guide, Max, was very friendly and had us zipping about on the Segways in no time at all. I have a terrible sense of balance so was terrified I was going to fall off, but they're actually surprisingly easy to get the hang of!
We toured some of the major Washington memorials, with time to stop at each to take photographs and have a quick wander. Max was very knowledgeable about the locations and was able to answer our questions. Very much enjoyed cruising past all the other tourists at a respectable 10mph and was amazed at how much ground we covered during the tour.
So in summary, go try this experience, you won't regret it (and you'll wonder why everyone doesn't travel about on Segways!)
