    Great tour
    Sonia_P, May 2023
    Paul our guide was great, very informative and knowledgable. Best tour I’ve done in Washington DC, very enjoyable
    Just do it!
    Marie_M, Apr 2023
    The most memorable thing we did in DC. Definitely worth the time and $$ to see the sites this way. Perfect way for our 7, 10, and 14 year old to learn a little about several sites without overwhelming or boring them and while keeping us all active. I’m sure it also helped that we had an amazing guide and amazing weather for it too.
    Fun, memorable experience
    Brendan_K, Apr 2023
    This was such a unique experience! Our guide Greg was very informative and fun! Great way to see and learn about DC 😊
    Great family ride.
    Beth_S, Dec 2022
    We had a great ride with Joe. Our ride ended up being just our family of four. Since it was quite chilly, Joe modified our tour to keep our kids most engaged.
    Best ever and Joe and David are outstanding and have a superb tour.
    Kurt_A, Dec 2022
    I proposed to my future wife on this tour and Joe Brady and David did an absolute great Job. They are such great tour guides.
    Great tour to experience D.C. with kids!
    Sarah_J, Oct 2022
    There were many bike options that were suitable for my kids. We opted for one riding solo and one on a tandem bike with me which was fantastic! Biking D.C. is the way to go! Greg - the tour guide - was so knowledgeable and shared so many insights and experiences from his life in D.C. He brought us to sites on the tour that I hadn't heard of yet! We saw so many things! Every question my son has about statues all over town he was happy to answer. We loved the tour so much and would highly recommend! Thank you!
    Wonderful experience for family of 5!
    Melissa_F, Oct 2022
    This bike tour was an awesome experience! Greg our guide was kind, knowledgeable and careful. The tour was a great way to see some of the sights and learn some history. This was a tour that worked for both my husband I as well as our 3 kids age 10-12. I would highly recommend this trip to others. The only disappointment was that we didn’t do the 3 hour trip.
    Nicole is very friendly...

    Fun way to experience a bit of DC history
    Susan_B, July 2022
    Our guide was attentive to our safety and comfort, and full of great information. The ride was very easy, even in the heat.
    Jonathan_B, July 2022
    Fraudulent company, full of liars and fraudsters - look elsewhere. Communication was poor and advertisements are misleading. Save yourself some money and book direct with a local business.
    Bike tour for families
    Jessica_P, June 2022
    Great way to see several important monuments and sights. It was an easy ride and avoided the long walk and crowds.
    Best way to see the sites
    Ashley_H, June 2022
    the entire trip was amazing, great way to see the sites. I suggest getting the bike insurance, as my friend blew a tire, and it was covered, while we waited for a new bike, the tour gide rode the flat bike and let my friend ride his.
    Jamie_M, May 2022
    James was awesome! This was an amazing way to see the sites as well as gain some interesting information! The bike tour was easy and I would highly recommend it if you don’t want to walk all over the city!!!
    It would’ve been good had it happened!
    Patricia_R, Apr 2022
    Well, definitely disappointed since I received a text the night before saying the tour was cancelled as the tour guide tested positive for COVID. I’m sure it would’ve been awesome.
    James was a terrific...
    Michele_H, Mar 2022
    James was a terrific guide! He had some really interesting facts to share that I never knew about our nations history. Thanks for taking us to the Japanese internment camp memorial!
    Best fun ever for all...
    Ali_K, Mar 2022
    Best fun ever for all ages and all biking levels Terrific guide Great way to see the city and cover lots of ground safely I’ll do it again on my next visit
    Great family tour and adventure
    Anna_P, Feb 2022
    The Lincoln Memorial and the National Mall area. A great tour and even though we went with the two hour tour this was just the right amount of time for our 7 year old, allowing us to see the essentials via a trailer bike attached to Dad's bike. Great fun and our guide was lovely.
    Good as far as it went
    Douglas_W, Dec 2021
    We saw only the three major buildings of the government. Had hoped to see more of the monuments. I frankly booked the wrong tour although the guide was fine. Unfortunately the vast majority of this tour is spent riding to and from capital hill.
    Great way to see Washington!
    Kimberly_R, Nov 2021
    It was a great way to see Washington however the bike I received had gear issues. Make sure you test your bike(including shifting gears) before you start the tour. Biking up the few hills was difficult not being able to shift gears. The tour guide Josh was terrific! I’m
