What to Expect
Half an hour before the tour’s scheduled departure time, meet the group for a Segway lesson. Getting the hang of it won’t take long with one-on-one instruction. Start on a high note at the White House, an icon of American government. Your guide provides entertaining historical background and little-known anecdotes about each point of interest. No need to be at the head of the pack—personal headsets ensure everyone is able to hear the guide clearly throughout the tour. From the White House, continue on to 25 famous landmarks, including the Lincoln and Washington Memorials, WWII Memorial, US Capitol Building, and FBI Building. Quick and easy Segway travel leaves ample time for photo ops! After a couple hours, the tour concludes back at the departure location. Leave with a new perspective on America’s capital and with plenty of time left in your day.

Loved our Segway tour with Justin. Being able to listen on the headphones made a huge difference! Didn’t matter how close you were to him...everyone heard everything he said. Hit lots of main attractions, too! Can’t go wrong with this tour.

Great way to get an idea of the layout of the city. There is fee paying parking next door to the office. The host was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. The training before hand was thorough and the Segways easy to use....More

Yes, we took a 20 minute break at this site and everyone could go and do whatever they wanted before we took off again on our tour.

Do not book through the website. Call them directly and speak to a representative. If your child has had prior Segway experience it may help to get them on the tour. Safety first!
