This was a memorable moment in our family vacation of DC and the absolute best way to see the monuments. While the monuments are all "on the mall", the distance between them adds up quick. With a bike tour, you can get around to each and enjoy the sights, sounds and overall beauty of the area, along the way. Bikes... More

It was wonderful to visit important places in DC in a bike, 3 speed it's more than enough, didn't liked the lock, kind of difficult to use it and if a bag it's added to the bike would be nice

I have never written a review for anything before, but this tour was so great i had to! We found the location easily for the start of the tour, had a quick lunch before, and then began the tour. This is my husbands first trip to America and my second time to Washinton DC, but this was a highlight! Our... More

I really enjoyed the tour. We took the night bike tour with Matt and it was great! He knew all the interesting stories about the monuments; I thought the length was perfect and really like biking around at dusk.

The bike tour was great! Is the perfect way to see all the major attractions, at a leisurely pace. Our tour guide, Sam, was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, providing us with lots of information and inside stories. I highly recommend it, especially if you are a first timer in DC.

We are transplants to the DC area and have never really taken advantage of all the sights in downtown DC. We took the bike tour figuring our teenagers would be much happier if they were doing something besides listening to a tour guide on a bus/trolley drone on and on about history. It was the best decision for all of... More

Totally fun Washington DC day bike tour! My husband and I flew from Hawaii to visit our family friends and their young children who relocated to Washington DC. Our guide was a cute, friendly girl who provided an educational, safe and fun bike tour. You can warm up on bikes before the tour. This was a perfect way for us... More

We took the Monuments by Moonlight tour upon our arrival in DC - a group of 5, including my husband and 3 teenagers ... And we all loved it! It was a terrific way to see all the major sites and get a sense of how to navigate the Mall. The tour guide was very helpful and provided all of... More

Had a wonderful time on the tour. Guide was great, facility was nice and convenient. Rented a tandem for my 5 year old and she had so much fun. Anyone can do it and I recommend doing it first on your vacation as you can see where everything is located and have a good reference when you want to go... More

I absolutely loved the bike tour. I was a little nervous signing up for a 3 hour bike tour because I don't really work out much and I can't remember the last time I've been on a bike, but it was so easy. We went at a great pace for everyone. It probably also helped that the weather was great... More
