All round great. Solo visitor from U.K., good group. Team made me feel comfortable in riding the Segway before setting off, don’t feel rushed at all Tour itself is great. We had 2 guides who each knew their stuff. Got to see tons of The Mall areas, spent 15 minutes parked at the Lincoln memorial as well so we could explore Would highly recommend

Very knowledgeable tour guides and Segways are the only way to do this tour. In about 2 hours, we were able to see what would normally take all day to see. We took lots of pictures. I will do this again!! Highly recommended!!

Amazing tour! Being clumsy, I was terrified of falling off, but the guides were really helpful and patient and I had so much fun! Highly recommend to anyway wanting to see the sights and have fun along the way.

It was an incredible way to see the city for first time visitors to get a layout of the places you will want to go spend more time at. And being on a Segway for the first time was a real blast.

Quick way to see all the main monuments. Great experience!
