Segway tours are one of the most popular ways to see all of the sites in Washington DC.
There are a lot of advantages to a segway tour. One of the best things about them is that you will cover a lot of ground with minimal physical exertion.
And Segway tours are just a lot of fun! What could be better than riding around the city on a quick and nimble segway?
There are several companies that offer a DC Segway tour and below we give a quick description of the cost and benefits of each.
Though all of these companies offer private group tours, we have focused the below information on their public tours.
Rules and Requirements
All of these DC Segway tour companies require riders to wear a helmet and will not accept riders under 16 years old.
Riders must also be over 100 lbs and under 250 lbs. People with health or balance problems are encouraged not to take these tours.
While walk-ups are generally accepted at these companies, it is always better to book in advance as the tours often sell out.
