NATIONAL MALL SEGWAY TOUR
Our most popular, Day and Night National Mall Segway Tour is the perfect tour for both those new to the city and those locals looking to experience Washington DC with an effortless glide. For the newbies to DC, this tour will offer you a fantastic orientation and give you an opportunity to see virtually all of the sites you’ve read about. For the veterans and locals, we’re positive you’ll learn new facts and stories about Washington that you’ve never heard.
POTOMAC RIVER CRUISE
Climb aboard the Nightingale and take in the Capitol City from the water! On this 45 minute cruise down the Potomac River, enjoy the sites on shore while you relax. With an oboard bar and a narration providing tidbits about everything you can see from the river, its another great way to see the Nation's Capitol!
No matter which way you look, there is always a great view from the Potomac River. See the Kennedy Center, Georgetown, the Memorials, the Pentagon, and the DC Skyline all while you casually cruise down the calm waters of the Potomac River. On board, you'll find a cash bar with alcohol, soft drinks, and snacks. Tables and chairs across the deck mean you can relax, take in the views and enjoy a drink while you tug along. The River Cruise departs daily from the Georgetown Waterfront which puts you steps away from some great shops and restaurants.
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.
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.
Our National Mall Segway Tour is approximately 3 hours long.
Our tours operate in groups of 8 people per tour guide.
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.
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.
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.
Unfortunately, not. There are absolutely no exceptions to the City Law which requires all riders be at least 16 years old.
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.
No, all of our tours run rain or shine. In the event of rain, guides will have ponchos that are free of charge.
If the party is larger than 8 the group will be split up for safety reasons.
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.
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!
