My cousin and I were really worried about this tour being 3 hours. But we shouldn't have been. There are plenty stops on the way and this is in no way strenuous bike riding. Our tour guide, Brady, was awesome! I would highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting DC. And I'd imagine the night time tour is even better.

We have done a few bike tours in various cities and always try to add one when visiting somewhere new, and we were glad we found and booked with Capitol city bike tours! We turned up and found out it was just the two of us booked in so we had a private tour! We picked the monuments, memorials and... More

Seven of us -- four adults and three kids, aged 9-14, enjoyed a private Sunset Bike Tour on October 11. We met our very nice guide, Andrew (a theater/chem major from GW), got oriented on our bikes, donned our sweet reflective vests and headed out. Andrew was a joy -- he was funny and informative and made sure everyone in... More

My friends highly reccomended this bike tour after they had taken it a month or so earlier. The day we went, was maybe a bad day, because it was the day of the Chinese state dinner - so there was a lot of activity around the White House. We got to see the presidential motorcade leaving the White House and... More

We had a great time on the Monuments &Memorials Sunset Bike tour. Our tour guide, Jake, was wonderful! He was the right mix of quirky jokes and historic details and was very helpful, flexible and supportive. The bike tour was a great addition to our family reunion.

This was a great bike tour of the monuments around DC. Our tour guide, Pedro, was outstanding! He clearly loves his job and delighted in sharing his knowledge with sincere enthusiasm. The tour took about 3 hours covering approximately 6 miles at a steady pace and with lots of stops.

Tom was an excellent tour guide. He really knew his history and from an English person's point of view it was just enough info. The tour took in all the highlights and memorials of Washington DC, it wasn't too strenuous and was done at a good pace, especially in the heat! Efficient and polite service. Good value for money. 3... More

A great way to see DC. A little more expensive than using the city share bikes but a lot less hassle and we got helmets. Staff were really helpful and gave us a few helpful pointers. Good fun all round.

I took three children on the tour of the monuments, and even in 98degree weather my teens raved about how the tour was the best part of our trip. They absolutely loved the guide (Justin) who was very personable and knowledgeable. He had them laughing and learning all at the same time. Every employee we encountered, from booking to finish...
