My daughter and I were fortunate to be the only two on a e-bike tour with our wonderful guide, Maryann. She was extremely patient, knowledgeable and accomodating, allowing me lots of time to take photographs of the many interesting sights along the route. It was a very well spent 4.5 hours and we are extremely grateful to Maryann for a fantastic time! This is a tour not to be missed.

Viator and Tour Guide didn't communicate and I lost $316
Jessica_B, Sept 2023
Viator and Bike Tour operator didn't communicate and then I lost over $300. The bike tour is 100% refundable as long as you cancel within 24 hours. My daughter had issues with her flight therefore I pushed my bike tour reservation from a Monday to Tuesday instead. I did this through the tour operator who confirmed. I still got an email from Viator that said the reservation was still on Monday so I double confirmed by calling the tour operator again that the reservation was Tuesday not Monday and the tour operator confirmed via phone that it was scheduled for Tuesday. Sunday night my daughter's flight had issues again so I went to cancel (WELL WITHIN my 24 hour time frame). The link wouldn't let me cancel because it said my tour was still on Monday so I emailed the tour operator cancelling (within the 24 hours). I also then called again both the tour operator and Viator the following morning to confirm they received the cancellation (this is still a day before the Tuesday tour when I called Monday morning). I also sent Viator proof of my correspondance cancelling within the 24 hour time frame. I got charged. I tried to get them to refund by discussing what happened and they wouldn't. So I am out the full $316. I had been a repeat Viator customer in various cities - you would think they would consider future bookings from me but they don't care. And now I a will never use them again.
Good Tour, bike needed service
Peggy_O, Sept 2023
The guide was great! My e-bike definitely needed servicing. The front sprocket was loose so it wobbled and scraped. Other than that it was a good tour.
Unlimited Biking Unorganized
Katherine_B, Aug 2023
Our guide, Joe, was great! However, the company that ran this tour was Unlimited Biking and they were very unorganized. In addition, they mixed riders on electric bikes with standard bikes so those of us who paid extra for electric bikes had to ride slow and constantly stop while other riders caught up.
Wonderful and informative.
Bruce_W, July 2023
We saw multiple monuments and had very good and friendly narration during a 3 hour tour. It was an excellent way to see multiple sites on the mall.
Wonderful experience and great guide Nicole
Sonja_Z, May 2023
To me the most memorable stop was the first Smithsonian palace and the story behind it that our lovely guide Nicole told us.
Fun, educational, and packed with all the sites
Jim_R, May 2023
We are locals but thought it would be fun to do a tour of the city we already know and love. It was awesome! I am now recommending to my friends and neighbors. I learned a bunch I didn't know and discovered some new gems. Our guide James was outstanding. He was energetic, knowledgable, engaging, and did a great job keeping the group together and safe. I’m now a big fan of ebikes. For tourists who want to get an overview of the dc government and monuments I cant imagine a more efficient and enjoyable approach. Thanks again James!
Robert_W, Apr 2023
Top shelf from check in to check out. I can't imagine seeing these monuments any other way. Our guide, Wally, knew the history of the entire Capital grounds as well as the monuments. I'd actually do this again. Great job.
Perfect ride
Christopher_H, Apr 2023
So many great sites in DC. WHAT A GREATway to see so many. And an awesome guide. This is a great day 1 or 2 ride. See the things you want to enjoy more of.
Great guide, great tour.
Colin_N, Apr 2023
Great guided tour of the main Washington sights. Wally, our tour guide, was very friendly and knowledgable. It was flat enough to not need the electric bike, but it was fun to be able to whizz off with no effort.
Lots of fun
Elise_P, Apr 2023
Awesome electric bike trip to all the DC monuments. The weather was beautiful and the group size of 15 was perfect. Wally was an excellent, very informative guide. We would definitely recommend doing this Washington DC tour.
Not great
Alex_P, Jan 2023
The electric bike I was given would only go 10 miles an hour whilst the rest of groups went around 20 . I ride a lot at home and no matter how fast I peddled was never able to keep up with the group. When I complained ths tour guide said he didn’t know anything about bikes and I missed a lot of the information as I was a long way behind. I would have been better on a normal bike. The tour advertised it went in all weathers and was for 3 hrs, it was a cold day and the tour only lasted 2 hrs. When I spoke to the tour company they did offer me another go at the tour for free but it’s not something you would do again. There were 2 girls in the same tour that stopped after 10 min and they were on the same type of bikes as me with just one button to put the electric on, avoid these bikes and ask for the ones where you can select your level. I did get to see the main sites just dissapointed the bike was faulty and the tour guide didn’t reduce the speed so all good enjoy and the tour didn’t last the advertised time it meant we missed a few of the sites that were advertised.
David was a fantastic...

Had a great guide in Sam. He gave great historical info on each monument in a fun manner. He also kept everyone together. Good pace too. I would totally recommend this tour to everyone.
One of our favorite tours
Douglas_C, May 2022
Nadia was a terrific guide and gave us plenty of facts and as much time as we needed at each stop. A very pleasant guide and great experience. I would highly recommend this tour.
Great trip.
Hildur_E, Apr 2022
Great trip. All the places you need to see. A space for a water bottle (complimentary), phone etc. on your bike. Judy the tour guide was 100%.
Monument bike tour
Kim_M, Apr 2022
great way to see monuments e bike were fun but really didn’t need them regular bike would have been fine. very flat and lots of stops. Judy our tour guide was wonderful
Fun way to see the monuments
Christina_F, Apr 2022
Ren kept our group safe in traffic and provided tidbits of fun facts and more information at all the sites we stopped at. Biking made the long walk between monuments more bearable and fun. Great for teens. Only drawback is I reserved e-bikes for myself and my daughter (15.5) however upon checking in was informed that she is too young for e-bike. I paid extra for this and could not get reimbursed in the shop. The assistant manager was not helpful.
Great way to experience DC for first timers!
Kelly_W, Apr 2022
My husband and I only had a short time to spend in DC and having never been before, we wanted to take a tour to make sure we saw as much as we could. It was a beautiful spring day, Judy and CJ were tremendous guides, and we were able to learn a lot and see many of DC’s best sites! E-bikes are always fun and cycling from site to site is not only a great way to see a lot but a wonderful way to experience this vibrant and beautiful city! Definitely recommend!
It is cold in DC in November.
Gilbert_T, Nov 2021
The entire tour was awesome! Our guide Nicole was knowledgeable and very friendly. I highly recommend this tour and we would take it again.
Great tour!
Michael_M, Oct 2021
