Best thing we did in DC hands down!

We took our children ages 12 & 10. It was perfect for their ability level on bikes and much cooler than being out in the middle of the day. We were able to see all the monuments and learn about each one along the way. The entire family enjoyed this fun way to explore DC.

Great tour guide, great bike ride, great evening

Was a great experience all around. We were a little rushed due to impending rain but the overall experience well worth it. Our guide Georgia was full of info and interesting tidbits. I would have liked more than 10-12 minutes at each spot to take in each monument or memorial, but understood we were working with a time frame and around an impending rain storm. The bike tour was so much better than a bus ride, I would highly recommend!

Fantastic way to see all the monuments!

We had so much fun, despite it being a little chilly. (We went on the first night tour of the season...late March). The monuments are beautiful at night all lit up. We covered way more territory than we would have walked. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and gave us ample time at each stop. Highly recommend!
