We had a lot we wanted to see up and down National Mall, so to save on hours of walking up and down, we opted to rent bikes. The pay machines have clear, easy to follow instructions and we were able to release bikes quickly. D.C. is relatively flat for the most part, so barring a bit of effort going... More

We are locals and decided to take our guest to see the city. We've never tried an organized tour before. We just did it ourselves. The bike tour was absolutely a great way to see a lot and not use every ounce of energy. We even saw some new monuments and learned new and interesting things about DC. Ryan was... More

We were guided around central Washington DC by Chris, who was a History student at George Washington University - perfect! There was only the 2 of us on the tour so we were really lucky to get him to ourselves. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the city and its history, there was nothing he didn't know and and... More

Had a good attentive and patient guide. It was raining lightly but was still a fun afternoon out. Interesting stops along the way and stopped long enough for photos. A good way to cover ground quickly and to see a lot.

Recommend for all families who think the Segway tour is to expensive. Easy flat roads and slow pace. Best way to see all the sights in Washington. Great bikes, they adjust them to your size. clean helmets!! Loved Lauren our tour guide, she knew so much and answered all our questions

Renting the bikes to move around the city is a great way to see the sites. We did not try this out until our last day on vacation. We were able to see more things in that one day, because of the bikes! Easy to rent and return to station. One problem we had the stations were not easy to... More

Our family of four (including a teen and a tween) really enjoyed the evening tour. Easy pace on flat terrain -- sometimes you have to bike on a narrow path, dodging pedestrians, but for the most part it's a simple, straightforward ride. Our guide, Dan, was enthusiastic and considerate and told some good stories. The tour was ~3 hours, but... More

Due to the warm weather, we were trying to figure out a way to tour the mall that would make it a bit "cooler" than walking. This was it! Our guide, Ash, was engaging, flexible, tended to everyone and overall provided a wonderful experience. Our tour was closer to 3.5 hours and we saw everything we had hoped to see!... More
