What You Can Expect

Washington DC Cherry Blossom Segway Tour

DC Cherry Blossom Segway Tour

There are walking tours and there are bus tours, but this unique Segway tour provides an entirely new perspective on the city of Washington, DC. It’s the perfect tour for those who are visiting for the National Cherry Blossom Festival — as well as those who are very familiar with the city and all its attractions and events.

Riding on a Segway isn’t difficult, but it’s important to know how to maneuver one. This tour begins at 502 23rd Street NW in Foggy Bottom, one of the oldest late 18th- and 19th-century neighborhoods in the city. Enjoy a brief but thorough training session to make sure everyone feels comfortable and knowledgeable about their Segway. Additionally, all passengers must weight between 100 and 250 pounds and be at least 16 years old to participate. 

With the training out of the way, it’s time to hit the open road and enjoy the Cherry Blossom Festival in this unique way. This is truly one of the best times to visit the nation’s capital.

Each year, the National Cherry Blossom Festival commemorates the 1912 gift of 3,000 cherry trees from Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo to the city of Washington, DC. The gift and annual celebration honor the lasting friendship between the United States and Japan and the continued close relationship between the two countries.

This Segway tour glides around the edge of Tidal Basin, with several stops to admire the beautiful pink blossoms against the backdrop of the reservoir between the Potomac River and the Washington Channel. Keep going past the National Mall and Washington Monument, then meander through the crowds to see more of the city’s famous monuments, like the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial and the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, again stopping to admire the view of the many cherry blossoms along the way.

Also see the Potomac Waterfront, Hain's Point, the Lincoln Memorial, the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial, the Japanese Pagoda in West Potomac Park and more.

This Washington, DC Segway adventure concludes back at its starting point in Foggy Bottom.

I really enjoyed this tour. It was a laid back, informative tour and we saw a ton of cherry trees. We went around the tidal basin and made several stops. We stopped at the Jefferson Memorial and Lincoln Memorials and were given adequate time to check them out on our own while the guide stayed with the Segways.

We braved the cooler morning of the first day of spring to see a reasonable amount of blossoms, it was a last minute thing for us and we've enjoyed riding segways before. The tour was informative, went to a few places that we hadn't been to before and we had a knowledgeable tour guide, All in all, a cold but good morning out. Thanks
