Many of the visitors are first-time riders and most people get the hang of it within a few minutes.  Once everyone is comfortable, you will do a quick soundcheck and off you go!  The first stop is the White House, just across the street from your starting point! From there, continue to explore as many of the following sites as possible: US Treasury Blair House Constitution Gardens Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool Vietnam Veterans Memorial Korean War Memorial DC War Memorial Tidal Basin WWII Memorial Washington Monument Smithsonian Museums National Gallery of Art US Capitol Canadian Embassy Newseum National Archives US Navy Memorial FBI Building And more!

    It was a lot of fun. We were nervous about learning to ride the segway, but we didnt have any issues. I wished we spent more time riding around the mall, but we did get to see a lot of DC which was great. I would definitely recommend doing this.

    I had never rode a Segway in my life, within 30 minutes I was on my new ride coasting the streets of DC with our outstanding instructors and tour guides. Loved that we stopped to get pictures and even got a few tips for dinner. You’ve got to try this tour!

    This tour was packed full of fun and history. Riding the Segways was so much fun. Our 2 guides knew so much about the city and it's history. They sprinkled in the right amount of humor that keep us interested & entertained. If you want to see all the major sights around the capital grounds from the Lincoln memorial to the Washington monument, this is the most entertaining and interesting way to do it. The tour was mostly riding past the sites and so if you want to stop, take a lot of photos, read plaques and wander into the historical sites, this is not the tour for you. Take this tour at the beginning of your trip to DC and then go back to linger at the places you find most interesting.
