It was a perfect evening, weather-wise. My friend and I were the only two who signed up for the 5:30 pm Taste of D.C. safari. Matt gave us a good safety and operation lesson and we were off! I'm from D.C. and learned a few things I didn't know. Segways are so fun! Definitely would do it again

So I've been putting off a Segway tour for years but this year my sister finally talked me into it and I was glad she did! I live in DC but this was like seeing the city in a whole new light. Our guide Matt was great and very entertaining! He provided lots of history and stories that I didn't... More

We had a group of 5 led by Matt. Matt was not only informative but funny as well. I being the older member of the group needed assistance getting on and off the Segway. Matt was so considerate and was at my side instantly when I needed reassurance. I highly recommend this tour because of this guide and also because... More

We have always wanted to ride a Segway, so took advantage of there being a tour in Washington. I looked at the TripAdvisor Segway tours listed for Washington and after reading reviews and looking at their website for pricing and tour options, decided on Segs in the City. I didn't want to book the tour too early in case the... More

We spent a week in WA DC and after visiting several Smithsonian museums we decided to do a Segway tour of the outdoor monuments. Neither my husband nor I had ridden Segways before but our guide Matt was confident that we would be successful...and we were. We were in a group of 6 novices but Matt was undaunted. We had... More

We had a group of 6 lead by Josh, our tour guide. DC is perfect for a segway; wide sidewalks, bike lanes and motoring through the National Mall was a blast. Josh was very interesting and pleasant, he pointed out lots of fun facts at The Capitol, White House and other hotspots. A 2 hour trip is just about right,... More

Segway's are the best way to explore the National Mall, period. End of story. While everyone else walks the quarter mile or so between sites you glide right past. We took the Discover DC Safari tour and it was the perfect start to our DC trip. Our tour guide Matt was great, always pointing out all the fun interesting facts... More

Booked the shorter tour for a birthday treat. We received some instructions before we left and soon were confident using them. We were lucky to be the only people on the tour as a group of 4. Would thoroughly recommend doing the tour as we were guided well on pavements and crossing roads which we would have been nervous doing... More

We were a little apprehensive about all of us being able to ride the Segways around the monuments in Washington DC on a crowded Weekend, but we did .... and we are really glad that we did !
