    A pleasant trip with a knowledgeable guide.

    I enjoyed this three hour trip with our guide Cameron who was friendly and knowledgeable. We saw some very interesting sights. I found it a bit too slow and would have preferred a slightly faster pace or to have seen more but in all fairness there was a nine year old girl in our group of three. She was a competent cyclist. The bikes were good Trek bikes and well maintained and the helmets were good quality. I would recommend this company and bike ride. Washington DC is a lovely city! Thank you.

    Lots of fun and a great way to explore the National Mall

    This tour offers a quick but good overview of the sights around the National Mall (walking approx. 11 km). Those who wish to explore buildings, museums or monuments in more detail can do so on their own later. Well organized and the bikes are ok (good up-keep, various sizes and tandem/child cart options available). I recommend this tour for anyone in the area.

    Fun and informative but not enough time at the Monuments

    This was a good tour. The guides were knowledgeable and very friendly. We went on the 7 mile Capitol tour. It was a good overview, but I was hoping for more time at the monuments. We did not get to get off bikes to look at any of them except for the Lincoln Memorial. If I had to do it again, I would probably just do the Monuments tour. We already had the Capitol and the museums on our to visit list, but we were using this as our monument tour and it wasn't quite enough. A bike is a great way to get around. We were there the weekend of the fourth so it was pretty crowded, but even my nine year old was able to get around on the sidewalks and make the ride. Washington DC is a pretty city and a bike is a great way to see it.
