The 2017 Cherry Blossom Season has concluded. Book your 2018 Cherry Blossom Segway Tours today!

Experience the Cherry Blossom Segway Tour.

Cherry Blossom season is one of the best and most beautiful times to visit Washington, DC. Our Cherry Blossom Segway Tour is a fantastic way to get up close and personal to these famous blossoms. Donated by Japan, the Cherry Blossom trees have graced the Tidal Basin and Potomac Waterfront for over 100 years. This casual Segway ride around the blossoms will give you a great look at this yearly spectacle as well as the incredible history behind the trees and all the wonderful monuments and sites they surround.

On this tour, three things we can't control are the weather, the crowds, and the blooming of the Cherry Blossoms. Our tours are scheduled during the National Cherry Blossom Festival, so there will likely be many visitors in the areas near the Blossoms. However, we will do our best to avoid the largest crowds and we will even venture off the Segways in certain areas to get up-close and personal.

Please note that this tour is offered seasonally during the Cherry Blossom Festival.

FAQ

  • Expand/Collapse When is Cherry Blossom season?

    The National Park Service forecasts Cherry Blossom season each year based on weather forecasts and countless other variables in the weeks leading up to the average Cherry Blossom season. You don't have to be in D.C. during "peak bloom" in order to see the beautiful blossoms though! "Peak bloom" is simply a term that refers to a day when at least 70% of the flowers are out and considered in full bloom. The days and weeks surrounding this day are just as beautiful. 

    We schedule our Cherry Blossom Segway Tour during the official Cherry Blossom Festival in order to guide you around during the estimated best time to see the blossoms.

     

  • Expand/Collapse Where is the meeting point?

    All Segway tours begin at our office, located at 502 23rd Street NW, Washington, DC 20037, near the intersection of 23rd and E Streets in Columbia Plaza.

  • Expand/Collapse Is there an age or weight limit?

    For your riding safety, guests must be at least 16 years of age and weigh at least 100 pounds and not in excess of 260 pounds. Yes, unfortunately the age restriction is City Law and no, there are no exceptions.

  • Expand/Collapse Can I rent a Segway without a guide?

    Unfortunately, we do not rent our Segways out to individuals without a guide. Since our tours are virtually always full, we need all machines for our tour customers.

  • Expand/Collapse Do we go inside the museum and monuments?

    Unfortunately we do not enter the museums and other attractions listed on our tour page as we devote as much time as we can to the tour itself. We will make short stops to learn about the museums and other attractions and give you a great orientation of the city so you'll know exactly where you will want to go after the tour.

  • Expand/Collapse My child is 13 years old and rode a Segway in another city, can he/she ride?

    Unfortunately, not. There are absolutely no exceptions to the City Law which requires all riders be at least 16 years old.

  • Expand/Collapse What is your cancellation policy?

    Space is limited on our Segway tours and though we may have upwards of 30 guests going out, we guarantee small groups with one of our many highly trained tour guides. For these reasons, we do require reservations. When you reserve a tour, we schedule our exceptional guides and support staff to make your Segway tour the best experience possible. For this reason we require a minimum of 72 hours notice for cancellations and/or rescheduling of tours. If you fail to meet your appointment, we still incur the same expenses, we probably have turned away others guests that would like to go on tour, and tour guides may have shown up just for your group. Therefore, there are no refunds for those guests who fail to show for a reservation or cancel without 72 hours notice. 

     

  • Expand/Collapse Are tours cancelled in case of rain?

    No, all of our tours run rain or shine. In the event of rain, guides will have ponchos that are free of charge.

  • Expand/Collapse Are reservations required?

    Reservations are required for every tour we offer. All walk-up customers will be accommodated in the best possible manner based on guide and Segway availability. Our tours fill to capacity on a regular basis. For this reason we highly suggest making a reservation online or contacting us directly to make a reservation. We don't want to fill our tour and miss showing you around!

  • Expand/Collapse Are the Segways safe for children or people with disabilities?

    We have had several people with disabilities join our tours. The necessary range of motion required to operate a Segway is similar to that of being able to transfer weight from one foot to another while walking. Also, riding a Segway does require the need to be able to stand for long periods of time.

  • Expand/Collapse How big will my group be?

    Our tours operate in groups of 8 people per tour guide.

  • Expand/Collapse What if my party is more than 8 people?

    If the party is larger than 8 the group will be split up for safety reasons on our standard tours. We can take larger groups as private tours; however those are subject to different pricing and plans and must be made in advance to make allowances for tour guides and machines.

  • Expand/Collapse What time do I need to get there for my tour?

    Your tour will start promptly at the scheduled time, therefore please arrive 15 minutes prior to tour departure time in order to complete the necessary paperwork. Please be aware that we have multiple tours departing throughout the day, therefore if you arrive more than 30 minutes early we may still be working with other guests. This means that even if you arrive early, your tour will still begin at the normaly scheduled time. Each member of your party will be required to complete and sign a liability waiver form. Minors under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to complete their paperwork.

  • Expand/Collapse Will I need to put down a deposit?

    We do not take a deposit, though we do ask one member of your party to provide us with a credit card to save on file while you are on tour. Your card will not be charged unless there is damage caused to the Segway and card information will be deleted immediately upon completion of a damage-free tour.

  • Expand/Collapse I've never ridden a Segway before; will I be able to pick it up quickly?

    Your safety is always our highest priority; therefore, we begin each tour with a very thorough orientation of the Segway and its use before going out to enjoy the city! Each of our tours will begin with a short safety video followed by time to practice in our training area across the street and instruction from your tour guide. We will practice on the Segways until everyone feels comfortable.

  • Expand/Collapse I have ridden a Segway before; is there anything I should know?

    We do our best to make accommodations for returning riders once we get out on tour, however please be aware that we prefer to train new riders first to give them as much time as possible to practice. While some returning guests wonder why they can't simply be set up on their machines and left to explore, we ask that you remain patient while we allow first-time riders to get acclimated with a minimum of distractions or other riders in the training area. These delays are usually 5-10 minutes at most and help us keep our training area as safe and efficient as possible.

Cherry Blossom Segway Tour Reviews

CHERRY BLOSSOM SEGWAY TOUR is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers a lot! This was definitely the highlight of our trip. Amanda was really great and the Segway was a super fun and efficient way to tour the city. We thought we were just going to see the cherry blossoms but we were taken to a few monuments we didn't even know existed. We had already done a ton of walking the day before our tour was scheduled so I know we wouldn't have gone as far or seen what we had seen had we not been on the tour. We will definitely tour with you again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every Penny! Unfortunately, most of the Cherry Blossom trees were done blooming by the time our tour took place. But we found the tour super helpful. Neither of us had been to DC before, so we were very unfamiliar with our surroundings. This tour really helped us have an idea where everything was, and our tour guide was awesome. We totally recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saw "Bucket List" Monuments Gorgeous day. Excellent tour provided by Kelly. We did the Cherry Blossom tour. Many blossoms had passed, but I got the chance to see the FDR, MLK and Jefferson Monuments, all of which were on my bucket list. The equipment was great. I LOVE the Segway. So much fun.A tad chilly, but who can control the weather?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! Grace did a great job improvising when our "Cherry Blossom Tour" was thrown off by the cherry blossom parade. She kept her cool and showed us a lot of other things. She was extremely knowledgeable and had some really cool facts for us. We had a great time! Thank you!
