“Good way to see the sites”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Biking is one of the best ways to see the sites across DC. This place has well maintained bikes at good prices. They even offered to hold on to our bags or other things which we did not want to keep with us. Besides that, they are also located in a convenient location and the staff were pretty helpful with everything. Would have been really good if we could have kept the bikes for a little while longer than 4:45 pm when we had to return the bikes which we had rented for the day. Overall it was a good experience.

“Best Bike Option in Town!”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

First... You are nuts to try and walk the sites in Washington DC. Bike is the only way to go. Our bikes were well maintained and worked perfectly. The shop guys were friendly and extremely helpful. They made it easy. No up selling or dumb charges for insurance, locks or helmets. Everything was included. Upfront. Awesome!!! Thanks guys!!! :)

“Bike the Monuments at Night!!”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

This was the highlight of our trip to DC in September with our 14, 12 and 7 year old sons. The monuments at night are beautiful and traveling on bike was a time and energy saver. I was concerned that our youngest son wouldn't be able to keep up with the group, but Bike and Roll offers a trailer tandem that was attached to my husband's rental bike. This relieved our worries about his safety and enjoyment. The 3 hour tour was just the right amount of time. When we began, it was still light and by the time it was getting dark, our guide attached front and back lights to each of our bikes while we roamed the WWII monument. Bike and Roll provided each of us with a bottle of water and a small snack. The ride was easy and our guide, Young, was knowledgable and passionate about our country's capital which made the experience much better than just riding around the monuments alone. He was also very aware of our group's capabilities and handled our group and the traffic like an expert.

“Awesome Segway tour!”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

I've been living in DC for the last year and a half but after I saw a LivingSocial deal for the Segway tour I thought it would be a great new way to see the city. Bike and Roll is a well-established company and I've used them for bike rentals in other US cities. They are very organized and efficient.

Our tour guide was Nick and he was very knowledgeable about all the landmarks on the mall. He also let us stop for photo breaks and was happy to play photographer for us. Even in the more crowded parts of the mall he was pretty keen on navigating the group through the foot traffic so that the tour was hardly slowed down at all. I definitely recommend Bike and Roll!

“Segway is the fun way to see the sights”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

I was a little hesitant in using a Segway for the first time, but within minutes I found it was easy to maneuver . My family and I will usually take a tour bus to see the sights whenever we find ourselves in a city for the first time. However, I would highly recommend touring with a Segway before deciding as to whether or not to take a bus tour. Two suggestions: if you have already seen a sight (we saw Capitol Hill the day before), let your guide know so s/he doesn't bring you to the same sight and you may have more time for the other sights. Also, some of the tourist magazines/flyers have a coupon which gives you a few dollars off. Let the person who books your reservation know when you reserve a place in order to take advantage of the discount.
