During 60-minute segway tours, groups glide to numerous historic locations, including St. John’s Church, Main Street Station, and Libby Hill Park. The route visits all the same stops as the Church Hill Tour or the Landmark Tour but takes half the time, as guides go into less depth and keep groups moving. Additional tours include the River District, Shockoe Bottom, Lincoln in Richmond 1865, and Public Arts tour. Tours depart daily at 12:30 p.m. and 5 p.m.; riders should arrive at least 15 minutes early for segway-navigation and safety training.

Segway of Richmond

The streets and buildings of Richmond breathe with history. Patrick Henry’s famous words, “Give me liberty or give me death,” echo in St. John’s Church, where the statesman gave his infamous speech; the ghost of Poe wanders the streets of the Church Hill district, where he lived and wrote; and the bones of presidents James Monroe and John Tyler lie peacefully under the lush grass of the Hollywood Cemetery, a National Historic Landmark. These are just a few of the locations that segway riders glide through during educational tours organized by Segway of Richmond, which has been an authorized dealer and tour operator in Richmond, VA since 2008 and has served 43,000 happy customers during that time.

The company’s most popular jaunt, the two-hour Landmark Tour, takes groups to nearly 20 historic buildings, churches, and museums, whereas other ventures focus on specific aspects of the city’s past, such as the Black History Tour or the Edgar Allan Poe Tour. In addition to learning about the men and women who shaped the culture of Richmond and practicing their preferred mode of transportation, tour-goers can explore the architecture of Victorian and Edwardian homes during a Fan District Tour or think about murals, mosaics, and sculptures during a Public Art Tour.
