Excellent Highlights Tour of Washington

Using the Segway PT was easier than we first thought and practicing in the park was a good way to improve our skills prior to “real” use. The tour was a good way of seeing the highlights without feeling worn out or tired. The cost was not overpriced as the whole experience was very enjoyable and worth much more. Our tour guide, Tyler, was patient, informative and an excellent resource for questions. The traffic and pedestrian interaction was not a problem, and rolling along the entire route was very smooth and easy. We would recommend the Segway PT tour as an easy way to see the highlights without the physical exertion of walking or other methods of transportation. Riding the Segway PT was enjoyable in and of itself.
