    We are the only Segway® Personal Transporter (PT) Tour to team up with the Smithsonian® Institution. Our excursion departs directly from the National Mall and we can show you DC in a way that no other tour can!

    You'll enjoy the outdoors when gliding more than 5 miles to explore over 1,000 acres of the National Mall and Memorial Parks.  Along the way, you’ll learn fun facts about DC's museums, gardens and monuments from our licensed tour guides.

    This scenic glide begins at the National Museum of American History, which details major themes in American history and culture and is home to iconic artifacts like the original Star-Spangled Banner, Abraham Lincoln's top hat, First Ladies' gowns and Dorothy's ruby slippers from 'The Wizard of Oz'!  Be sure to visit the museum before or after your tour.

    The tour continues with gliders seeing and learning more about the history and fun facts behind the country's national treasures, including stories that only the Smithsonian could tell!

    I have been in talks to get us a group discount for this particular event, but how much of a discount will depend on how many people would be attending.

    Without a group discount: 
    $79* per person for a 3-hour experience 
    • $59* per person for a 1.5-hour experience

    3-Hour Experience with Group Rate Discounts:

    12 guests = $67.15 + tax = $71.18/guests
    20 guests = $59.00 + tax = $62.54/guests
    25 guests = $50.15 + tax = $53.16/guests


    90 Minute Experience:
    20 guests = $35.40 + tax = $37.52

    2-Hour Experience:
    20 guests = $41.30 + tax = $43.78

    If you decide to RSVP "YES", I am going to need (at least) a REFUNDABLE $50 deposit by Friday, May 31st.  You can send this deposit to:


    NOTE: Please be prepared to pay more based on the number of attendees (so bring friends if you want to pay less).

    You may get a better response rate by listing a specific time and location that can be adjusted later. Flexibility and consensus are good, of course. I've just observed we get a better response rate when specific dates/times are listed first and adjusted later, perhaps, based on the crowd's preference(s). (With this group, anyway.)

      Thanks for the suggestion. Now that the details and fees have been finalized, I've updated the event accordingly.

    I will have to pass this time but if one is scheduled sometime this fall, I'd likely be interested and bring a +1.
