Full description
Hop on to a self-balancing Segway and make light work of Washington D.C.’s attractions. The National Mall, White House, and other attractions are all must-sees in the US capital and gliding between them on a Segway removes the only reasons for not visiting: long walks under the sun, or endless piling in and out of a tour vehicle!

Beat the heat and save your energy as you explore the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Smithsonian Castle, and other fascinating icons of American history and culture. And no tour would be complete without a chance to see the White House, one of the most photographed buildings in the world.

If you have never tried this eco-friendly way to get around, this is a perfect chance to learn how to ride the transport of the future! You will get a brief orientation session at the start of the tour, and will soon be gliding serenely past the city’s museums, war memorials, and government buildings.
