My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the bike tour. I would recommend this over walking tours if the weather is hot. These aren't many hills around and you can get to places so much quicker. The tour guide was very friendly, informative and nice. They offer you free sunscreen and water bottle. The price was reasonable. I would recommend this... More

I wish I could remember our guides name, he was super friendly, knowledgeable and shared lots of fun little stories about each of the sites we saw. Our son, 9, easily rode along with the group and enjoyed all of the facts he learned. Pros: -Lots to see -Comfortable bikes -Restroom stops we're made -Safe routes -Easy ride -Knowledgeable and...

Our guide was a super nice, intelligent GW student. Our three girls age 12, 10 and 8 all loved the tour. We rented a tandem for the 8 year old for fear of it getting too long of a trip for her. She probably could have done it but she loved the tandem and it prevented her from falling behind.

My wife, daughter and I visited D.C. over spring break in late March. On our first morning we had the opportunity to see many of the city's main attractions on our Capital City Bike tour. What a terrific way to start our week-long stay. The staff was professional, the bikes were well maintained and, best of all, our guide-Ruben-was terrific.... More

Our experience was awesome! We had a knowledgeable and friendly guide who gave us plenty of time to see the monuments. The bike ride was great and the group was small enough for us to get to know each other. When we return to DC we'll definitely do another bike tour!

This was the best thing we did in DC. We saw so much and got a great education of all the hot spots. Our tour guide was fun and my kids had a blast. This is a must do. Awesome company.

We were a group of students who wanted an overview of the city. We had a fantastic 3 hours with our guide who was so knowledgeable about each monument we stopped by, taking photographs when asked and giving us such interesting facts. Would highly recommend this as the best way to get an overview of the city.
