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.

"Green" isn't just a buzzword at Green Star Sedan Services. This chauffeur company abides by the eco-friendly implications of its name, ferrying clients across the DC metro area in zero-emission Tesla Model S vehicles. And while the environment is a priority, nothing is more important to these drivers than customer service; expect a prompt and courteous pickup, as well as a meticulously clean vehicle. The drivers also make it a point to drive safely, allowing you to relax in the backseat while they deal with traffic, tolls, and bridge trolls.
Recently celebrating 23 years of delighting passengers, the maritime crew at Capitol River Cruises supplies a memorable yet speedy method of taking in Washington, DC's historical highlights. The crew whisks new passengers away from Washington Harbor every hour on afternoon boat tours that navigate the famous Potomac River. Two tour vessels, the Nightingale and his son, Nightingale II, house refreshments as guides supply historically astute narration. Their narration, combined with the unobstructed views granted by the Potomac, create an illuminating way to explore sites such as the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, and US Capitol.
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.
