It was a great experience. Much better that what we expected it to be. Our guides were fun and practically informative.

“100% Fantastic!”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

If you are planning to do any sight-seeing in Washington, DC, this should be at the top of your list! Corey from Private DC Segway Tours was wonderful! He and a young woman (whose name I do not recall...sorry) took the time to teach my boyfriend and I how to use the Segways beforehand. They were very thorough and made sure we were entirely capable with the machines before starting our adventure. We took Tour B and it was ~2-3 hours (we stopped for the restroom and drinks and had plenty of time to walk around each site), but it would have been at least twice that if we had done it all on foot. Corey took us to all the major sites and took our picture in front the White House and Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument. At each stop, he told us stories or fun facts about what we were seeing...bonus! The stories at the FDR Memorial and Bureau of Engraving were the most enlightening ones. For me, one of the best things was that Corey rode in front and used a small noise-maker to clear the way through the pedestrians. I am rather timid about forcing my way through crowds, but as long as we followed him, we sailed straight through (thank you Corey!). Our tour was only $5 more than a group tour with another company...and totally worth the price. It was a fabulous afternoon and, because of Corey and our amazing tour, we have decided to try and do Segway tours in all of the cities we visit. So fun and definitely recommended!

“Lots to see with this excellent 3 hour tour.”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

This was a fun way to see a lot of DC. We could not have seen all the monuments and sites if we walked. Corey did a great job leading our tour and took pictures of us so we could remember our great day. I highly recommend this tour and my husband and two sons enjoyed it also.

“Excellent and fun way to see Washington”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

My family (2 adults and 3 boys 17,19,21) had a great time with Private Segway Tours. Corey runs the show and took ample time to teach us to use the Segway - esp the over-60 member of the group. He emphasized safety and was very careful. Then we were off to see the sights of and near the Mall. The Segway is a great way to do this as it is mostly flat with good pavement surface and quite long distances between stops. We saw all the important monuments and buildings. Corey gave us some interesting historical perspective at each sight - not too boring for the teenagers and enough to whet your appetite to learn more. Everyone really enjoyed going along on the Segways - great fun. This was our first time on Segways and it was an ideal place and tour company to do it with.

“Excellent Tour - HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

I had an opportunity to travel to DC 4th of July weekend and decided to try out Private DC Segway Tours. Coming from someone who has done over 10 Segway tours across the U.S. this tour truly was the best!! Thorough training process (being able to control your machine should always be #1), In-depth information (Thought provoking info/knowledge share which sparked some great dialogue amongst our group) and most important a small group (This tour felt intimate unlike many others. I truly wanted to have a little fun while learning about the monuments and various sites. Mission accomplished with a small group of only 6 of us.)

WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
