City Segway Tours was born in Paris in 2003. Back then, Segways were still newfangled contraptions that most people hadn't even heard of much less ridden or snared with a lasso. Immediate success followed, and soon, they had their sights set on North America. Today, City Segway Tours has locations parked across the world, including San Francisco, New Orleans, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.

Besides the Segway itself, each tour includes three main components: a guide, a helmet, and an orientation. During the orientation, riders familiarize themselves with their Segways, learning the vehicle's controls and the location of the eject button. At the head of every tour, a friendly, knowledgeable guide leads the way, dishing out facts and historical tidbits while groups buzz past local landmarks. Additionally, tour group sizes are kept small, making for a more intimate experience.

Forget busing, biking or taking the Metro; in a city with so many interesting neighborhoods and architectural details, perhaps the best way to explore is by foot. Washington Walks guides visitors through the city’s many unique neighborhoods, from hip urban thoroughfares to upscale historic neighborhoods to the corridors of power. Get Local Saturdays feature a different neighborhood every weekend for interested out-of-towners or locals looking to explore their city further. Other regularly scheduled tours include Memorials by Moonlight; a walk along Embassy Row; and explorations of Georgetown or Dupont Circle. Many of the entertaining guides are native Washingtonians, actors, semi-professional historians or all of the above – each tour costs $15 per person.

While the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal runs along much of the Potomac River, from the District of Columbia out to Cumberland, Maryland (a distance of more than 180 miles), Washingtonians are most familiar with the portion between Georgetown and the Maryland border. This section of the C&O Canal, which opened around 1830, is quite quaint, meandering between 19th-century townhouses and updated office buildings. As you head out of Georgetown, the towpath runs parallel to the C&O Canal, making it perfect for hikers, bikers and early-morning runners. While the mule-drawn canal boat ride is no longer available in Georgetown, you can ride it in Great Falls between April and October, with National Park rangers dressed in period clothing serving as tour guides, providing perspective on life along the canal.

DC Cruises showcases the capital from an uncommon angle: the waterfront. Sightseeing boats available for private parties ranging from 20 to 100 guests drift on the Potomac from Georgetown to the river basin, taking in views of the Kennedy Center, the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, and the Washington Monument. Sunset and happy-hour cruises cast the buildings against colorful skies. At night, the moon glows on the marble structures, giving them new mystique. Wine cruises and crab feasts combine on-the-water sightseeing with local fare, and cherry-blossom cruises showcase signs of spring: trees dotted with pink blooms and newborn bills cooing in their bassinets on the mall.

Licensed professional tour guides could tell you about the design plan of the U.S. Capitol, the specifics of the congressional resolution to build the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, and the quotes engraved on the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial. Or, they could show you.

Excellent Tours' four experienced guides share their knowledge of the capital during three narrated tours aboard vans, mini-buses, and coach buses. Each tour includes stops at the White House, Capitol building, Lincoln Memorial, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, which is where the similarities end. Tours run at three different times and visit several different additional sights, such as the Thomas Jefferson Memorial and the World War II Memorial. During each excursion, guides divulge facts such as how President Theodore Roosevelt gave the White House its name in 1901, and why the engineer who laid the cornerstone of the Washington Monument used the same trowel George Washington used nearly a century earlier instead of the nice one his mother bought for him.
