What You Can Expect

Washington DC Monuments Bike Tour

See Washington DC sights like the White House on a bike tour.

At your selected departure time, meet your local guide and get fitted for a hybrid comfort bike near the National Mall, where you’ll embark on a 3-hour Washington DC bike tour of monuments and memorials. 

Follow your guide at a leisurely pace over relatively flat terrain, using bike lanes that wind past notable historic landmarks in the dynamic capital. You’ll stop en route to hear interesting facts from your guide about each site you visit, including the Washington Monument, a towering obelisk that honors the first US president. 

Learn about the architectural features of the memorials along the Potomac Tidal Basin, including the stately Lincoln Memorial and Jefferson Memorial. Read the many famous quotes at the Martin Luther King, Jr Memorial, and note the more than 58,000 names on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, a tribute to men and women who served in the Vietnam War.

Check out the National World War II Memorial and more before you ride back to the starting point, where your tour concludes. If you’d like, opt to include a full-day bike rental on the day following your selected tour date.

Our guide Em was great- just the right amount of info and then enough time on our own to explore... biking to the monuments was a fantastic way to see a lot- and it was just right for our kids, ages 9,11, and 13.
