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.

My Family had the best time. It was a great way to see the city. Our tour guide did an excellent job and was very accommodating. We had two young kids who rode on the tandem and it was great. Will do it again next time we visit. Would recommend to anyone who can ride a bike.

We had an AMAZING experience doing the Sunset Bike Tour of the Monuments. With two boys, 10 and 13, they loved it as much as we did and were able to burn off a lot of energy. The city is super accessible to bikers and it wasn't strenuous. Just pure enjoyment and really educational.

Capital City Bike Tours was the highlight of our trip to DC. We were able to see the Jefferson Memorial, The FDR Memorial, The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, The WWII Memorial and The Vietnam Memorial, all in two hours. That would have been impossible to do on foot or by car. Our tour guide was awesome. The kids are... More

From the White House, to the monuments and the national Mall, this is a fabulous way to see the best of DC's sights in a short time. I learned things I didn't know at every. For me seeing the memorials was a highlights especially the... More

Only reason not full marks is it was sometimes difficult to hear the guide. Best way to cover the distances along the Mall and hear the stories

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.
