SegZone's gentle two-wheeled steeds help sightseers glide easily through the charming side streets of historic Annapolis, inspecting historic sites in guided tours or during solo excursions atop rental vehicles. Each segway session begins with 20–30 minutes of training on the bipedal vessels, after which one-hour and two-hour tours embark on a leisurely jaunt past notable sites such as the Maryland State House—which boasts a memorable domed roof and lightning rod designed by Benjamin Franklin—and the Hammond-Harwood House, a relic of British colonialism still echoing with the clamorous chomping noises that bespeak crumpet addiction. The two-hour tour continues through the grandiose streets of Murray Hill, a residential region harboring a diverse selection of Victorian-style domiciles dating back to the 19th century, and concludes on the Annapolis waterfront, where camera-wielding customers can snap memorable pictures of Spa Creek. For both tours, sightseers receive a personal earpiece that directs them to nearby attractions, points out the complimentary bottled water available to drink, and whispers the names of future Kentucky Derby winners. Self-starting segwaynauts can opt for a simple one- or two-hour rental to blaze their own trail through Annapolis' cobblestone streets.
Committing their enterprise to eco-friendly tourism, the women at SegZone Tours guide visitors through the historic streets of Annapolis, along the city waterways of Dover, and around the track at Dover International Speedway—all aboard segways. For groups or private parties, tour leaders can also focus excursions on local gardens, architecture, and wildlife in areas often unreachable by car or paraglider. They also guide themed seasonal tours, such as rides along haunted-house routes or past holiday-light displays. With an eye toward safety, staff members always provide thorough instruction on riding before tours or rentals, though they often give customers license to race or argue over whose segway would look better with flames painted on the side. When not leading guided excursions for customers or school groups, the team organizes corporate team-building events as well as indoor obstacle courses for recreation.

“Had a great time on the tour and SegZone was very responsive to helping me schedule the tour. I was a bit surprised when they let us roam free for the 2nd hour. Later when I checked their website I found that the "Tour" had been cut short and that "The second hour ventures out of the historic downtown area to the charming neighborhoods of Murray Hill and beyond; We Segway past gorgeous multi-million dollar waterfront homes and cozy side streets that visitors rarely have a chance to see.
