We really enjoyed the tour -- Justin was a great guide. Despite the fact that the government was still in shutdown mode, we were able to see and learn quite a bit. Several of those in our group were DC natives, and it was fun to learn more about the monuments and memorials that we see frequently. Our group also included people with different levels of "fitness." Except for the "Hill," the ride was over very flat terrain so it was not a problem.
Our guide (Andy) was outstanding. You don't need to be an athlete to do this, but this could be rough if you are out of shape and the weather is hot. Having stated that this was a pleasant tour. Do it in the morning; less crowded on the streets after morning work traffic dies down and before pm traffic starts. A full 3-hour treatment covering a lot of ground and stories. They do a good job in setting you up with nice bikes and helmets (we brought our own, but it would have been fine to use theirs - at no extra charge). We got this on "sale" but this would have been worth the regular price.
Excellent. A must for anyone visiting DC. Tour guide very understanding an accomodating.
Although it was raining the whole tour, we had a very good time! Nice relaxing bike tour with all the highlights of Washington DC. The bikes were good and we had time enough to stop at all the important places.
Fantastic tour, Our guide was really informative, friendly and fun. My 10yr old thoroughly enjoyed it too. Mainly flat going so suitable for all and you get to see so much, you can then choose what you go back to.
Highly recommended! Easy 3hr ride with numerous stops. Our tour guide did a great job.
This was one of the highlights of our tour!! Our tourguide was well informed, bright and cheerful and full of fun. The biking was not tiring at all as Washington is fairly flat. The bicycles were in good condition and the whole set-up was done effectively and proffessionally!! The best was when we got back we were offered the bikes free of charge for the rest of the day. We biked Washington for more than 6 hours and saw SOOOO much more than we would have had we tried to do so on foot. Definitely to be recommended.
Very knowledgeable guide and a comfortable pace made this bike tour very enjoyable.
Our tour guide, Carrie, was amazing, very knowledgeable and very approachable. She was willing to take our picture and gave us ample time to see the monuments and memorials. The staff was nice and accommodating. They handed out water, fans, and snacks. The tour group was small enough to keep up with (8 people total). The trail was easy to ride, especially for someone like me, who hasn't ridden a bike in over a year! Overall we were very pleased with the experience and will be considered a highlight in our vacation.
We enjoyed this trip from start to end ... and even today. The cycling was relaxed. The explanations provided by our guide were excellent and encouraged us to book a similar tour in NYC. Thank you very much for the recommendation.
This is a great way to see DC and our guide Carrie was delighful. Our group of 2 adults and 2 teens really enjoyed it.
Great way to see DC, our guide 'Carl' was very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and helpful, would recommend
