We arrived at designated spot about 15 minutes early. Our tour guide, Corey, showed up about 3-4 minutes early and guided us to the Segway tour start location. We completed the waiver form. We explained this was approximately our 10th Segway tour so our Segway training was fast and within 10 minutes we were touring DC.

Really enjoyed our tour with Corey and his safety assistant (Darnell??). Since it was just the two of us on the tour and we were both experienced Corey made it fun for us, taking us everywhere at full speed ahead, but safely! It was a rainy day and got a little chilly so make sure you know what the weather is going to be like.

While the Segways are going to get you everywhere faster expect to do a fair amount of walking. Segways are not permitted in some areas, so you have to park nearby and do a little walking. By the end of the tour we had walked close to 3 miles.

As mentioned earlier we have done a fair amount of Segway tours. This was one of our best. We enjoyed knowing our group would be small, 6 or less. turned out to be just the two of us, so bonus. We've been in larger groups before and it makes hearing difficult, and traveling across streets more challenging in larger groups. I also liked that the web site told me exactly what I would be seeing. Corey was a top notch guide, he provided us with a lot of history at each tour stop. We did finish a little early but attribute that to the fact that Corey knew we could keep up at the top speed of the Segways and we didn't take that long at each stop.

Try dealing with these folks on the phone. Go ahead, call, and see if you don't get beaten down over the phone about their safety issues. Makes you think something really bad happened and all they're concerned about is not being libel. Never once did they mention how fun or exciting it would be. After cancelling my reservation, I felt like I was hit by a bus. Terrible experience.

Definitely worth it!!! My wife and I scheduled this tour and were lucky enough to get Corey, who was already highly recommended by others who've already experienced this tour. They were very friendly and helpful for whatever you needed. You will walk away from this also loving Segway's, but you're just going to realize how slow it is to walk normally now. We also loved that it was a small and private tour. We definitely highly recommend this tour!

Last minute our plans got changed and we ended up being in DC earlier than expected - DC Tours worked with us to reschedule our tour so we didn't miss out! The day we went it was pouring rain, windy, and cold, but our guide Corey acted like it was the sunniest summer day he'd seen! He took us everywhere, had lots of enthusiasm and great stories/info, and we had a blast! The segways are easy to learn and you will be flying around in no time! A great way to see all the great sites in DC no matter what the weather! Thanks so much!!!

The tour was amazing. Cory did a great job teaching us to ride the segways! It takes some practice and Cory was very patient with us.
His knowledge of DC history was amazing! I would most definitely recommend this tour group.
