Programma

You'll arrive 15 minutes to tour time to check-in and be fitted on your Segway. Segways are perfect for city riding and have a handle bar bag and rack so you can store all the essentials - phone, keys, wallet. I also provide a water bottle for the ride.

After getting set up, you'll meet the rest of your group and go through a 30 min training session to get comfortable before heading out.

Your tour will cover about 5-6 miles in 2 hours, making stops at all of the major monuments and memorials on the National Mall from the Capitol Building to The Lincoln Memorial and around the different Smithsonian Museums. At each stop, you'll hear some history, and unique facts, and perhaps a dark secret or two.

Our tour route will end back at the shop.
Other things to note
No Experience Necessary! We will teach you how to how to ride :)

I believe that exploring a city on two wheels in the BEST way to get your bearings, see more than you can on two feet, and have fun!

I've been offering bike, e-bike, and Segway tours in DC since 2004 and sharing my city with visitors is my passion. My favorite thing is when guests tell me that their bike tour was the absolute highlight of their visit to Washington.

I believe in providing great customer service and take pride in the fact that my tours are eco friendly. I want everyone to explore on bike and encourage them to take a bike tour in every city they visit.

When I'm not working, I'm spending time with my wife and partner, Janna, and our dog, Charlie.

This was so much fun and a great way to see all the sites quickly. Being in our 60s who do a lot of walking anyway, we didn’t want to be so tired running around everywhere to see all the sites. I put our age in here because I heard a couple say as we passed by that they were too old to do that. Haha no you’re not! It’s easier than you think! This was our 2nd time going on a Segway (the last time was 9 months ago) and it was like riding a bike, in that we got on and it was as if we always knew what to do. Bill our tour guide was patient and helpful with my sister who was nervous as it was her first time. She ended up saying it was so much fun and would do tours this way when ever she can! This was a perfect way to see it all. Bill was very informative and helpful. We were able to stop and take pictures and rest a bit at some of the sites. Doing a tour on a Segway was helpful for us as it gave us an idea of where we might want to go back and spend more time. ThAnKyOu so much for a great time!

We had a great time on the Segway tour. Bill was very gracious with the different folks in our tour. He helped me step off of my segway every time I needed too, which was very sweet since my machine had a bit of a will about it. lol Also, one couple arrived a bit late, so Bill was willing to tag on a few more minutes to our tour time, so we wouldn't have to sacrifice the time or be hurried throughout the tour. I also was impressed, and enjoyed Bill's booming clear voice for pointing out highlights throughout the tour.

Emily was an amazing tour guide. She’s extremely knowledgeable and makes her guests feel at home around DC. Very fun tour and I made new friends!

This tour could be improved: first, the Airbnb date & time availability has no relationship with actual availability. I had to send several emails to verify an open slot Second, from the get-go there is pressure to tip. It is right in the original posted descriptions and two other times it was mentioned orally. It comes off as greedy. I do not think a tip should be solicited or mandatory. It should come from our free will. Guides should be paid what they’re worth in the first place. Tips should reward outstanding experience. Third, sign-in was bizarre & uncomfortable. We were not told our lD would be held AND we had to show a credit card in spite of paying in full with Airbnb. That was a complete surprise. The response was “in case you make off with the Segway.“ That was insulting and simply not true. Fourth, we could not get my ID back until we showed the original receipt…a receipt we almost threw away.

This is the BEST way to see the monuments! It was a hot day and riding along on the Segways provided a wonderful breeze. Our guide, Judy, was incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating of our request to see the Korean War Memorial. We highly recommend this experience!

Segways are a fun way to soend a couple hours touring DC, and the entire tour was held in bike/segway/scooter friendly locations. I booked a tour on a very rainy day and was the only guest, so I had a private tour. I appreciated the poncho that I was given, which made things easier. After a short while the rain stopped and the sun came out. My guide was Judy, who was very knowledgable about DC and American history. She made sure to take me to the right places, and also give me some free wandering time where it made sense. I was sad when the tour ended, mostly because riding thr Segway was really fun. It just takes a few minutes of practice to feel confident with it. And Judy made sure that I was safe and give me all the pointers I needed for a comfortable ride.
