Segways have recently exploded onto the scene as a great way to get around, and they really are by far one of the most fun and exhilarating ways to see a city.
They are easily controled by the rider using only their balance, but they operate safely in the pedestrian environment, so its a great, safe family option for a pedestrian friendly city such as DC where you can weave in and around the beautiful tree lined pavements passing by the iconic monuments within the Nation’s Capital.
For those aged 16 and over, the company offer a number of tours to ensure they accommodate to everyones tastes. The most popular tour is the National Mall tour which can be done during the day or in the evening. This takes you past all the sites you know from the movies and history lessons – The Lincoln Memorial, Capital Building, and White House just to name a few. Along the way you will be inundated with fascinating anecdotes and facts about the buildings and those who walked their halls.
Tours are limited to 8 people so you will never feel left out, and will always be able to hear the guides fascinating tales! Alternatively, if you don’t like the idea of following the crowd, you can organize your own private guide to who will cater to you own personal itinerary.
The evening tours are the most popular, and highly recommended. You can feel the electricity in the air as you rush through this beautifully lit city just seeping with history, and really understand why this city is the heart of the country.
