This is a great way to see Washington DC. The tour was nearly 3 hours long. Berto was very conscientious regarding everyone's safety and well-being. He was quite knowledgeable about the area. He gave suggestions on what to do while here. He gave us plenty of time to explore at each destination. I highly recommend this tour.

Great way to see all the DC monuments
Robert_F, Sept 2023
Just a wonderful way to spend a few hours when visiting DC. Easy flat ride through DC with great group of people and wonderful tour guide.
Great ebike tour
Michael_H, Sept 2023
Great 3 hr ebike tour. Don't really need ebike, pretty flat. Only get 10-20 minutes at each memorial. Best time is October, November. Park in colonial parking garage across the alley $39. Wharf is behind.
Great job

Joe had a football for our boys to play with when they weren’t interested in our done looking at the monuments. Nice even when the boys got the football stuck in the tree too high to retrieve.
Wonderful biking experience in DC!
Sheac_Y, Aug 2023
Joe Brady was a wonderful tour guide. Very knowledgeable. He took great care of our 10 year old son who was the youngest in our group! We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We were happy that this bike tour included some of the more missed memorials like the Jefferson Memorial and Roosevelt Memorial as they are off the main mall. The pace of the bike ride was good. We had time to grab a quick water and bathroom breaks. If your party is comfortable on bikes, this is an amazing way to visit the monuments and memorials of DC without a lot of walking. We were a family of five with 3 kids, 10, 15 and 17. Highly recommended.

I loved seeing the capitol and its new memorials. The guide added intriguing historical details. The ride was easy to follow for both kids and adults.
Awesome tour!

Wally was awesome! The bike tour around the Monuments is the best! Hope to do it again during cherry blossom season.
Britteny_R, Jul 2023
I enjoyed everything. From the tour guide to the relaxing views! I loved how we took 15-20 min. breaks to relax & site see. Will do it again!
Great way to see the city and keep cool whilst doing so !!
Elizabeth_L, Jul 2023
We thoroughly enjoyed our cycle tour ! Joe our guide was informative and knowledgeable about Washington DC . We would recommend this tour to others . Only one thing that was stressful was that we arrived 30 mins early ( advised to be 15 mins early ) and literally jumped on the bikes and left before our tour time . I’d never used an e- bike before so found it a little tricky to simply get started so soon after arriving with very little instruction ! It was thankfully reasonably straightforward but all happened really fast !
Great way to see the monuments
Jennifer_G, Jul 2023
Great mix of seeing and learning about the monuments while also getting exercise and covering a lot of ground in 3 hours.
Don't walk, Ride!
Michael_B, Jul 2023

I appreciate the historical content that was included for each monument and the time to explore it on your own.
Customer service

Bike tour guide, Rhona, was kind and informative. Wish that Alex at the front desk had better customer skills, maybe just a good morning, thank you, please, etc
Best Way To Tour The National Mall
Jouhaina_B, Jul 2023
I was originally concerned about taking my 7 year old on a bike tour as she had no road riding experience and I was concerned she wouldn't be able to keep up. We ended up riding a tandem bike which was perfect for her. There was an 8 year old in the group who kept up just fine. The pace was very easy going and doable for big kids. The tour guide was great and gave interesting overviews of each monument before letting us explore for 10-15 minutes on our own. This was definitely enough time to look around and take pics. I would recommend it as an alternative to a bus tour or walking tour because there's no better way to tour the National Mall than by bike!
Great way to see all of the main tourist locations
Laura_B, Jun 2023
Our amazing tour guide James was amazing and the bike ride was easier than I had expected. Our 9 and 11 year olds handled it easily. Lots information and plenty of photo opportunities at every stop.
Great way to see the monuments.
