This was the favorite tour of my teenagers. Andrew was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. We did the 5 hour tour that included Arlington cemetery. This beats sitting on a bus or trying to walk all the monuments.

We have done bike tours before so were keen to try it in Washington DC. We were not disappointed! We had Lexi as our tour guide and she was fantastic. Very knowledgable and friendly. We did the 5 hour tour which included Arlington. I highly recommend doing this one. It is a great combination of riding, which is pretty easy... More

This was a great way to see the monuments, especially those that are a bit further away to reach on foot. We did the sunset tour which was good because it wasn't too hot. Our guide was very friendly and able to answer all of our questions and DC is really easy and safe to bike around. Highly recommend.

Whether you are short on time or have just arrived in D.C. you should consider taking one of these tours. You'll hit most of the monuments in 3 hours and can then decide which ones you'd like to return to. We took the sunset bike tour to avoid the sun/heat and we discovered what a treat it was to see...

This was the highlight of our DC trip, we suggest doing this on the first day, you cover an amazing amount of ground along the mall in a pretty short time.

Sam our guide was really good company and knowledgeable. As we were only in Washington for a couple of days it was a good way to see the main sights. We had great weather and there were only 2 of us on the tour which made it even better. It is a great way to see a lot in a... More

I was in DC on business and had a free day and wanted to cover a reasonable amount of territory. A bike tour was the best option. The team at Capital City Bike Tours were friendly, the tour guide knowledgable and it was a relaxed, easy way to cover many of Washington's most interesting tourist sites. Highly recommended.

I booked the food truck bike tour for my last morning in DC and it was the perfect way to end my trip. We met our friendly guide, John, at the shop and quickly got on our way round DC. We stopped at all the "big" touristy places (White House, Capitol, etc) but also to lots of other spots that... More

I have been on bike tours in many major cities, and our experience with Capital City Tours was "just ok." Some of the challenges were beyond our guide (below average temperatures for April, on and off rain throughout the evening), but some things were more frustrating! We could barely hear anything our guide was saying (he seemed to be having... More
