Fantastic and fun tour of all the DC highlights. They are easier to ride than we thought and the guide was fantastic--wish I remembered his name. Saves your feet! Definitely worth the money and I'd do it again. Highly recommended for a different and exciting experience.

We have lived in the DC area for 6 years and had a new experince unlike any other. OUr guide, Lee Robinson, was fantastic! He took his time teaching each of us to use the machines and was extra patient with those of us who were less comfortable, especially when getting on and off. He knew his material and we learned a lot! Thank you so much - best experience here in Washington!

What a great time we had touring all over DC. Covered 7 miles in 3 hrs.! Stopped along the way so guide could tell us about the different sites we were seeing. I found the instructional video beforehand and the hands on training session before we started to be very informative. Even though I had been on a Segway before, I learned a lot. I would do this again on my next trip. It was such fun!!

All the reviewers are not lying. This is a great experience combining two awesome things - Te National Mall and Segways. It is a marriage made in heaven.

Like other reviewers have said, this is an amazing way to see the Mall and other DC highlights. Lee is very skilled at teaching his clients how to ride the Segway and he is an informative tour leader. I loved the entire experience.
