FAQ's

What is a Segway?
~ The Segway, Human Transporter is the first of its kind, a self-balancing, personal transportation device designed to go anywhere people do. Easy to use and operate, the two-wheeled Segway sports high-tech gyroscopes that automatically respond to your body's movements, "sensing" when it should speed up and slow down. You stand on a small platform between left and right wheels as you hold onto handlebars at a comfortable waist height. The Segway handles the balancing for you, so that you're always upright as you glide through any environment.

Are the tours canceled in case of rain?
~ No, tours run rain or shine. Ponchos are available for anyone that needs them and the Segways themselves run just fine in all weather.

Do we go inside the museums and monuments?
~ The tour does not enter the museums and monuments since the Segways are so much fun! You will receive a great orientation however, and you'll know exactly where you want to go after the tour.

Are Segways safe for children or people with disabilities?
~ Although riding a Segway is relatively easy, the District of Columbia requires that all riders be at least 16 years of age. You will have the opportunity to practice on the Segways so that everyone feels comfortable and ready to go out and conquer Washington DC.
