Rory our guide was fun and informative. Segways are the only way to tour. it was so easy to get up close to everything and not tire ourselves out. This was our second city toured on a Segway. We plan to ride one every time we travel.

My aunt and I had so much fun touring the monuments in DC. It hurts for her to walk distances so seeing the monuments seemed almost impossible. Her daughter informed us of the segway tour. We were able to see the monuments within a short time without having to walk all day. It took us a few moments to get... More

This is easily the best way to see DC and was one of our favorite parts of our trip. The bike route is flat, easy-to-ride, family-friendly and incredibly scenic. Seeing the city this way is magical. Can't recommend it enough.

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
