Traveller Tips

Pretty much the whole time everyone is just following behind the guide in a single file line, listening to him on your headset, so it's not awkward to be by yourself at all.

I did not feel safe driving around with lots and lots of people and cars all around us. It could have been a lot of fun if the streets looked like those photos! Be sure to get a THOROUGH lesson before you get on! There is a trick to stopping and they go over that very briefly before leaving for the tour. My husband fell over because he couldn’t stop and we were entering a very busy intersection. He crashed directly into me, knocking me over, and he landed only a Couple feet from cars zooming by! The tour guide was very nice, but I cannot stress enough.. make certain you completely understand how this thing stops! Bending backward from the waist up will NOT stop you - quite the contrary! You must bend from the feet up (stiffen your legs and lift your toes if it helps - that’s what helped me) they do not explain this. They were rushed to get us out there before the next group was ready to go. Not a great experience for us
Just book it!!

Felt very comfortable after a brief introduction to Segways. Loved our tour guide Alex! Very informative and made us giggle through entire tour. This is the best way to see DC in 2 hours.
Great Way to see DC

Book directly through Capital. Working with victor was a complete hassle that requires multiple phone calls. The didn’t even provide the address…we had to dig for it. Ridiculous. The tour, however, was excellent and fun.
Fun! Great highlights tour.

The best part of the tour is that you cover so many things in a short period of time without any effort! The guides - John and Paolo - were absolutely amazing with answering questions, telling the stories and being incredibly patient in the process. One of the best way to see the DC 💯

My husband and I just moved to DC - this was our daughters first time here for a visit - she is in college and didn’t move with us. We had a great time with John and Ian.

Our tour guides were awesome. The Segways were not hard to use at all after a tutorial from the guides. We had a very good time. I would highly recommend it!!
Quick views of the city and fun ride
Stassa_M, Oct 2022
Segway’g through the streets of D.C. and through the malls and museum districts was a great experience and opportunity to see more of the city faster without obstacles. It was a pretty safe option to take and A lot more fun than a open bus tour or fast pace walk. Wear comfy shoes!
Awesome time
Claudina_L, Oct 2022
Great experience. I was a bit nervous at first but the staff did a great job training each of us. After a few minutes, we felt like pros. It was an awesome way to see DC. Paolo and Ryan were really knowledgeable and entertaining tour guides
Segways are the way to go
Lora_M, Oct 2022
Ryan and Paulo were so adept at keeping us comfortable on our Segways, traveling thru the city and its many obstacles, and all the while telling us about what we were seeing and keeping it fun. We had a great time and recommend it highly!
Great way to start our vacation!
