The bike tour was great! It enabled us to see and learn about such a large area around the capital and monuments. We wouldn't have been able to do this if we had tried to walk it. Our guide Judy was awesome! She pointed out interesting connections to our group's various hometowns and watched over our bikes so we could get a closer look/take photos at the different stops/monuments. Next time I go back I'm planning on doing their DC Monuments tour. Highly recommended!

We had a fantastic time on this bike tour with our 14 and 16-year-old kids. The guide, Josh, was very knowledgable and answered all of our questions, really taking the time to tell us all about each site. We are looking forward to coming back again to take another tour.

I’m glad I booked this tour while in DC. It was a great bike ride throughout the National Mall at a very good pace as well. Connor was very informative and helpful throughout the tour. I’d definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting.

I was surprised to see a child in our group. If she was five she was barely that… and on her own bicycle. It stressed our guide and I feel that we definitely missed out on a lot of what could have been fun and interesting we’re it not for the Mom with the little girl who cried and crashed and had a lot of difficulty stopping and dealing with the ride… understandably so!

Our tour guide was not knowledgeable about the monuments/memorials and was very uncomfortable with public speaking. It seemed like she had attempted to memorize a script and got very flustered when she forgot a line. This made for a long two hours. At one point a volunteer at a memorial tried to chime in to help her and she got very upset.

Our tour guide (Joe) was terrific. He paced the cycling just right to suit the varied needs of the group and showed us places en route to the main sites that we would otherwise have missed. I liked being given a padded seat bike without having to ask which made the trip more comfortable for me as a female. Many thanks.

Check in was simple, bikes on hand were all of great quality, sizes for younger kids, older kids and adults. Tour guide (Kevin) was really great. Gave us a 3-5 minutes of background on each monument, and then 10 minutes to experience each site. Being on a bike riding around the Capital kept it fun for the kids, and made 3 hours pass by easily. All the stops were well-worth it and in a logical path.

Our guide David took us to all the sites and was very informative. The ride was flat and very easy going and we had plenty of time for photos etc. The company was very accommodating in rebooking my tour when my flight was delayed and I missed my original tour.

We had a fab time!! I think the name of our tour guide was Georgia or Georgina, she was the manager and I think stepped in that day as someone had called in sick. We had an absolute blast!

We went out on the 11th September for the morning, we had a group of 8 including the 2 of us, it was really informative, pretty, lots of stops, very safe, I absolutely loved cycling down Pennsylvania Avenue, we were up front and it felt like the road was ours! So cool, we also had some great recommendations from G, she told us of some great lunch places and told us about the Round Robin bar in the Willard Intercontinental Hotel, we went there a couple times and Id of been really disappointed to have not known about that place!

The sites were awesome, although it was super hot that day we just had an absolutely amazing time and I would very very highly recommend doing it.
