“The trip was as expected with some nice...”
Reviewed August 14, 2010

The trip was as expected with some nice little extras such as the provision of water and snacks. It was a great way for the whole Family to see the monuments at night.

“Our family had a great time”
Reviewed August 13, 2010

We made a last minute reservation while arriving in DC, it was a great choice to see the major monuments. We took the 7 pm tour so we could see a little daylight and some evening views. Our 7 year old was on a tandem bike with my husband and our 8 year old did just fine on her own.

“Bike N Roll - a lot of fun!”
Reviewed August 12, 2010

I live in Northern VA and we do a lot of sightseeing when friends and family come to visit. We decided to try the "Monuments at Night" bike tour because we thought it would be fun, we'd get some exercise, and it would be neat to see the monuments at night.]

Our tour guide was Ben, a recent local graduate. He was patient with us, he didn't ride too fast or too slow, and he was knowledgeable. We wore helmets and orange reflective vests and got going. We rode to the Jefferson Memorial, FDR, Lincoln, Korean and Vietnam War memorials, the Einstein statue, WWII memorial and the White House - we had some extra time so we rode to the Capitol as well. They give you water and snacks and time to get out and take pictures and wander around each monument.

I imagine it's difficult to take this tour during the day if the crowds are big - but it was just great at night.

“The Smartest Way to Start your Vacation!”
Reviewed August 7, 2010

I smiled when I read Carzim's review of Bike and Roll because we were on the same Capitol Sites tour last Wed. morning!! Trust us...this is the best way to begin your trip as you will get a wonderful overview of many sites in an entertaining, informative and "cool" way.

Our guide, Amy, was knowledgeable and energetic. Even though it was a warm day, our 10am-1pm trip felt comfortable the entire time. (I felt sorry for those we past who looked tired and hot!) Amy made sure we stopped in the shade whenever possible while learning about a new site, and we were given a generous bottle of water to keep us hydrated. I was sooo glad that we booked this tour on our first morning, and would definitely book it again should we return.

“The single best way to see DC--comfortable, efficient, inexpensive and environmentally friendly”
Reviewed August 5, 2010

We saw twice as much as we could have in our one day available, comfortably (the breeze while biking is a nice relief from the heat!), efficiently, with control (we could stop wherever and whenever we wanted), and inexpensively (with a $5 discount for mentioning their ad, it cost each of us $30 for a full 12 hours)! The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and patient, it's easy to find, and as long as you show up in reasonable time in the morning (at least on weekdays) there are lots of bikes. You can also reserve ahead of time on line if you rent for a full day. DC is an easy city to bike in, at least around the main tourist areas. We enjoyed getting around by bike thoroughly and also felt virtuous--no emissions!
