After a short operating lesson, follow a guide to more than 25 major landmarks, including the White House, Capitol Building, and Lincoln Memorial.

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.

It was a really fun way to see DC. We had taken a bike tour the day before and did not cover as much territory as the Segway tour did and in less time. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

Charlie was a great tour guide! We were scheduled the same date as a large political rally- but we decided that would only add to the authenticity of the tour. On a definite plus side- roads were closed so we could ride unimpeded down the middle of streets. How often does one

If you want to be outdoors, and see the city without walking for miles, do this Segway tour. It's a great way to see some of the monuments and memorials, and to ride by some of the other interesting sites downtown. Be sure to ask for Justin to be your segway tour
