This is the best way to see Washington DC. We had a great tour guide who really knew his stuff. It was extremely hot and he made sure to stop plenty for water. There was enough time to see the highlights.

I'm so sorry we missed this question! We do not have a minimum age for our bike tours. All riders are welcome and we have plenty of kids bikes and trailers to carry all the little ones. I hope this helps!

This is a group bike tour led by a guide. If you want to bike on your own, you can also rent city bikes that are located in certain common areas in D.C., but I'm not sure the price of those.
