Experience the Monuments & Memorials Segway Tour.

Have you ever tried to walk some the National Mall's best memorials? The Jefferson Memorial, the Lincoln, the Franklin Roosevelt, the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial? It can take an entire day, if not more! Our Monuments and Memorials Segway Tour makes it possible to visit them all in just three hours.

As a respect to each of the sites, Segway riding is prohibited on the Memorials, so we’ll use them to venture from site to site, taking in the incredible scenery as we travel. Then, when we arrive at the site, guests can walk around the Memorials for about 15-25 minutes after receiving the great history, anecdotes, and urban legends that have made our tours famous the world over.

FAQ

  • 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 How big will my group be?

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

  • 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 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 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.

Monuments & Memorials Segway Tour Reviews

MONUMENTS AND MEMORIALS SEGWAY TOUR is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 77.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great experience! We went on the Monuments and Memorials tour (in the evening) with Fiona in late July. We had a blast and would definitely recommend this tour, especially if you have never experienced a Segway before. It was a quick and cool way to see the sights (although it doesn't necessarily give your feet a "rest"). Fiona was a great instructor and was very personable. Getting the hang of the Segways was pretty easy and Fiona was there for any problems or questions anyone had. We had four in our group and were joined by three others. We would definitely rent Segways again. We would definitely tour with City Segways again. We would definitely request Fiona as a tour guide again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding tour and really fun. My 16 yr old son and I took this tour at 7pm. It was GREAT. Neat to see the memorials at dusk and after dark, and much more comfortable than during a hot summer day. The Segways are easy to learn and such a neat way to travel from location to location. Our guide, Allysa, was very knowledgable and led a great tour. You "Segway" to each memorial, park, then visit each place on foot. Then back on the Segway to the next site. I brought an iPad and the Segway has a zippered pouch that easily held it and a bottle of water. This is a fun, memorable experience that you will enjoy. City Segway is the best and biggest of the Segway tour operators in Washington DC... We will do this again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smartest Choice We Made In DC We had planned on driving some bikes around to see the monuments, but chose to do this and glad we did. We did the 7pm tour which meant the daytime heat was decreasing. When I think of the time saved and frustration avoided by not doing this ourselves, it makes for a much better memory. Amanda did a great job. Obviously an intelligent young lady, she also was knowedgable about the sites and presented in a way that kept it fun. She also looked out for the group with gentle reminders about safety. 75 bucks may sound like a lot at first, but trust me, it is well worth the price. We really enjoyed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best way to see D.C.! I have vacationed to and toured around D.C. many times and this was, hands down, the best way to do it. Daniel was so much fun and had tons of patience with all of us. It was very obvious that history is his passion as he had so much info and funny stories to share about what we were visiting. Our appreciation for the monuments that we got to view is so much deeper because Daniel shared so much back story and history behind each one. I can officially check off riding a segway from my bucket list! That in its self was a blast!! The experience was worth every penny!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay, but not what I had hoped for. We have done Segway tours in several different cities. The are really fun! This experience... Not so much. Our guide was 10 minutes late and one of the customers in our group had a difficult time learning to ride the Segway. Therefore, the tour did not get underway until we were 35-49 minutes in. The guide was nice and had good information, but we had to scoot right by many of the monuments due to time. 10-15 minutes for Lincoln, Vietnam, and Korea...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flew like a swarm of bees! My wife and I absolutely loved this tour. Even though it was a very hot night in DC it felt good as we zipped along with our group to see all the great memorials and monuments around the reflecting pool and tidal basin. So much different at night with the lights on. Some memorials don't lend themselves to the dark, but most had a very different look. Well worth it, from the lesson for newbies to the very end when we didn't want to stop. Loved our tour guide (sorry, I forget if it was Nicole or ...?). We forgot to get a shot of us on the Segway, darn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun but fast I went on the 3-hour Monuments and Memorials tour. The guide (Sam) was fantastic and he seemed to have a knack for knowing just what each person in our group needed to feel comfortable on the Segway. The tour itself was really fun but I would have liked to have more time at each monument and memorial. It felt a bit rushed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great overview Took a "monuments tour " with Elisa. She was very knowledgeable about the sites and we hit all the highlights. She was very flexible with us becuz we had such a small group (3) and took us by the White House and the Capitol as well (consensus to make change). It was awesome- even if I did fall on my bootie (user error).
