“A Must in DC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The tour is just at the right pace. Our 10 years old son enjoyed the ride and had no problems keeping the pace. We went much closer to the monuments and memorials than in the bus tour we did on our previous visit to DC. Our small group (we were two families) gave us the feeling of having a private guide for 3 hours. In addition to the main sites, the guide showed us some important, but less well known sites, like the National Japanese American Memorial. The bikes were well adjusted to the size of each family member. It was well organised, and even at 36 celcius it was enjoyable.

“SO MUCH FUN!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

Great way to see DC sites - - from a bicycle! Active - safe - - and with Carl, our amazing and incredibly knowledgeable guide. 'Took the 6ish pm ride of DC sites. Wear clothes you can comfortably bike in. Take a small camera. Don't forget stuff in the bag attached to your bike handles. This was a safe ride for bike savvy children and their adults. Only down side - is that biking is often on the wide sidewalk areas that the tourist walkers use. Be prepared to navigate. You'll have so much fun!!

“Seeing Washington on Wheels”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2011

A group of us celebrated a special birthday by renting bikes from Bike and Roll Washington. The owner carefully fitted each of us to our bikes and helmets and then it was off to see the major monuments. Our guide was knowledgeable and added little unknown fact and lots of humor to the tour. Even though I hadn't been on a bike in awhile, I felt safe and like a girl again. It was a wonderful way to see Washington and lots of fun. I highly recommend it.

“What a wonderful tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2011

We took the Capital Sites at Night Bike Tour two weeks ago and loved it! It was the highlight of our weekend trip to DC! The staff did an excellent job fitting us with bikes and helmets. I was nervous about my younger son being able to keep up as the tour was three hours long, but he had no problems at all! It was a great way to see the city, along with being able to learn interesting facts along with way! Our tourguide, Jas, did a wonderful job keeping all 15 of us altogether. He provided us with water and a granola bar. He offered to take photos of our family. We had a great tour! It was much better than any other trolley or bus tour!

“Bike the sites is a great way to see and learn about the monuments etc.!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2011 via mobile

The guide was very knowledgable about all the sights. It's a great way to see the sights with a group or family! My only advise to make it better would be if there is a large group, to have a guide leading and someone at the end as well.
