Reviewed November 13, 2012

It was an amazing experience. Our guide Rick was very knowledgeable, and a very cool and fun guy. We laughed, he was extremely helpful and very patient with all of us and also accommodating when some people needed to finish earlier to catch their plane. Tour was really 3h plus 30 min to learn how to operate segway. No cutting corners, not like competitors charging the same price for 2h tour INCLUDING learning how to ride segway. Segway is a way to Go in Washington and smithsonian tour it's what you should take!

“Unique, fun way to see DC and get an overview of the sights,far superior to a bus or pedi- cab.”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Our guide, Dan, trained us in how to operate a Segway, reviewed safety info, and let us practice until we were comfortable. Then we were off like ducklings after their mother (if ducks could zip and weave), with Dan providing entertaining and informative tidbits about the sites. It was interesting and educational, but mostly, it was just plain fun. All of this was set against the spectacular backdrop of an orange and red sunset, lighting the monuments with a rosy glow. We highly recommend this tour, particularly with Dan.

Chris and I had a great time. Rick was a wonderful guide. He knew which sites to take us to and knew the background behind each. He made our Segway tour a special event for me and my friend.

Thank you Rick Tyson

“Segway Tour of DC”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Our group of 4 had a blast doing this tour on Nov 5. Rick was an outstanding guide, the small size of group was great, headphones enabled us to hear everything he said. No other way you could see all the important sites in DC in only 3 hrs. Plus it was fun to ride the Segways.

Reviewed November 10, 2012

I have traveled 30 countries in over 20 years and this is simply the best tour I have ever taken. Dan was better than my Ivy league history professors.
