Wow these bikes were so nice!!! I could not imagine walking through the national mall so my friends and I decided to get e-bikes instead. They were so friendly at the shop and the e-bikes were really easy to use. They gave us recommendations of a route and we loved the ride. We saw many monuments and it was the highlight of our trip.
Good experience in Washington DC

So after spending hundreds of dollars on Viator Travel over the past month, I had to cancel ONE booking…simply ONE! Just ☝🏾…I was in DC, had to cancel a Washington DC e-bike rental due to the weather, they refused to reimburse me. I told them I had to cancel cause the weather was bad and didn’t want my kids riding under such weather conditions. REFUSED. So, because of the weather, that I have no control over, you’re not willing to accommodate? How disappointing. After years of using VIATOR, I definitely will NEVER be using them again. Once again, how disappointing. I guess they needed the money more than I did.
DC Bike Ride

Fun time in DC! Seeing all the monuments and sites and riding along the Potomac was a blast. Having a coffee and then lunch. Perfect day!
Bikes were not in the greatest condition. Very loud brakes scared pedestrians nearby.

It was easy to get to the National Mall. If the equipment were in better shape, it would have been a more pleasant experience.
Do not book through Viator!!!

Viator advertised an all day ebike tour. However, when we arrived at Unlimited Biking at 10am to pick up the bikes, Viator had reserved the bikes beginning at 2pm. The bike shop changed our reservation to manual bikes and 1 ebike. This was highly problematic since 2 of our riders recently had surgery. The bike employee assured us that the credit would be processed by the time we returned the bikes. Two bikes broke along the way. While repairing the chain on one, grease ruined my friends shirt. Of course no credit was issued upon our return. This process is said to take weeks to resolve because the bike shop won't issue a credit. It has to go through Viator.
Not fully electric. Not great
Alison_K, Apr 2022
Pedal assist bikes, not fully electric. The bike wasn’t in great shape and pretty banged up and things were broken. The guy didn’t know how to use the bike when we asked he was like uhh this button should do this and this one should do this I think. Also, not their fault but there were so many people out that we spent most of the time dodging the tourists or walking the bikes around crowds.
Trip advisor took my money for a junior operator of an e bike yet the law prohibits 16 and under. Ruined trip
Andrew_Z, Apr 2022
Poor cooperation between trip advisor and bikes unlimited
Couldn’t get our money back and couldn’t provide my 12 yo grandson the experience we both planned on
Breeze around DC effortlessly
Sarah_F, Nov 2021
On such a beautiful day it made the most sense to see DC outside. So easy to ride from monument to memorial to iconic buildings.
Great way to explore
Brian_E, Sept 2021
We had a wonderful day riding around DC. The bikes made exploring more personal than the bus rides. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone
We had a great time! Will...
Patrick_S, Sept 2021
We had a great time! Will definitely do it again next time we're in DC. We were given very nice maps, directions and even suggestions for dinner.
Tim_B, June 2021
Best way to see the Monuments. Able to get far more sightseeing in via bike. Very bike friendly city
great day to ride, needed more explanations of services
ray_d, June 2021
1-late in getting bikes as they were busy with groups.
2- didn't explain they were not full electric bikes, but booster bikes (no problem, but it would have been good to know prior)
3-no water offered
4- no helmets offered (we had our own, but again...not fully service to explain everything)
5-experience...it was great but we ended up using less than 4 hours worth...could have saved some money...
Jessica_A, July 2020
Great ride through Washington! The ride was smooth. The checking was really fast as well. We was giving a quick tutorial on how to use the electric bikes😊
Gabrielle_M, July 2020
They were very nice. The ride was amazing it was our first time in DC so to see the black lives matter and the White House amongst other historic building was amazing. Definitely will use again
