Recommended by friends and did not disappoint. Great way to see and orientate yourself with D.C. Our guide Adam was very friendly and informative. All round good experience would recommend.

Our family group of nine was split off with our own guide and had a great time. Definitely better than sitting in a trolley waiting for the traffic to move.

Had heard good reports on this tour and we weren't disappointed. Saw all the major attractions at a leisurely pace and an informative student guide. 3 hours passed by so quickly. Definately better than the bus tours.

We were only in D.C.for 10 hours. This tour was a GREAT way to see si many of the sites (white house, congress, the mall, Lincoln memorial, and more) in three hours. Plus we saved our legs all that walking. I prefer this to the segway tour because you have time to explore some of the memorials. Our tour guide... More

We had an excellent time and learnt so much about Washington from our guide. I highly recommend the tour and you don't have to be a professional cyclist to join in. Washington is a truly beautiful place.

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone-especially if you've never been to the city before. What we learned and saw on the tour helped spark interest in things we would like to do and visit in more detail on our next trip here. Our guide, Chris, was not only knowledgeable but extremely interesting. 3 hrs seemed like three minutes.... More

My 13 year old son and I took your monuments & memorials sunset bike tour on our second night in DC. This was a fantastic way to visit the memorials and monuments and learn some history along the way. The ride itself is very relaxing and the bikes were very comfortable and I feel most everyone would enjoy this tour.... More

I love to take a bike tour on the first day I'm in a city. Great way to get an introduction and you can cover a lot of ground on a bike. Capital City Bike Tours did a great job. The guide was very informative on the facts but also had a lot of inside stories which spiced things up.... More

Chris was a great guide and the ride was awesome. This way the best way to see all the major sites in DC with two restless teens. Water and Popsicles afterwards were a nice touch. Highly recommend.
