Loved this trip. A beautiful day for a bike ride to Mt Vernon. The self guided tour of grounds was fun and Potomac cruise on way back informative and very relaxing.

This tour was great. The scenery on the bike ride was beautiful. The ride is all trail and pretty easy except the last quarter mile into Mt Vernon is one big hill. I ended up walking the bike to the top. Mt Vernon was good to see. I recommend the boat ride back to Alexandria and dinner in town.

FANTASTIC
the whole thing was so great I can not stop talking about it. Clear directions, Val, our bike renter was incredible and so helpful. The ride is beautiful and ending with a cruise up the Potomac was the best. The guides on the boat clearly love what they do and shared their knowledge of the wildlife and history of the river. Would do it again in a heartbeat and am telling everyone I know to give it a go.

The trail from Alexandria to Mount Vernon is really lovely. Most of it is shaded and fairly level. There are beautiful water views and the surrounding neighborhoods are all excellent. We parked the bikes when we arrived and ate in the dining room, which was surprisingly good. The gift shops and all the facilities at Mt. Vernon are top notch. After the tour we meandered down to the river and took the boat back to Alexandria where we had dinner. It was a perfect day.

Due to weather issues we had to move the ride to July 5th and the guys from Bike and Roll were terrific about helping us with that and giving us directions to get to the starting point in Old Town Alexandria. Beautiful bike trails and the Mount Vernon tour was really interesting.

Excellent tour. Biked one way. Boated back. Peanut-chestnut soup and bread pudding at Mt Vernon restaurant were great complements to the tour. Three hours went quick at the estate.

We really enjoyed the Tour. The bike trail was great and the tour of Mt. Vernon was very enjoyable.
The bike company was very helpful and attentive to our needs.
Thanks for a great time!

Great bike trail along the Potomac - good bikes- we were able to go to the front of the tour line at Mt.Vernon with our passes. Liked everything about the tour. Alexandria is charming. Maybe could have had better directions for finding the bike sho originally- but smartphone got us there.

Perhaps the funnest part of our trip! We had not biked in YEARS - it was a moderate trail but challenging at times. However, lots of laughs and such beautiful scenery along the Potomac. We truly enjoyed ourselves. I highly recommend! Take the cruise back to relax and enjoy the sights!! A+++

Having biked most of the 200 or so kilometers of the Hawkes Bay (NZ) bike trails, which are wonderful, I have to say, this is my new favourite ride. We arrived early in Old Alexandria town so we were able to wander the beautiful cobbled streets and soak up the ambience of this lovely town before arriving at the Bike and Roll depot near the waterfront at 10 am. We were soon dispatched with our bikes and clear instructions and followed the track through the city and out into the beautiful Virginian countryside along the Potomac river. There were a few lumps (small hills) but our bikes dealt with them admirably. We travelled there in the middle of October so the fall colours were just showing through. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Mt Vernon but felt a little rushed as the ferry was not available and we had to bike back to be in time for the 5 o'clock closing (apparently it usually closes a bit later). The trip back was a little easier and just as spectacular.We travelled with our 23 year old son who enjoyed it just as much as we did and I would unreservedly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to get a little exercise while sightseeing. I should mention there is a free trolley bus that travels up and down King Street from the train station, which we thankfully discovered on the way back.

Bike shop staff were extremely helpful in sizing the bikes for everyone in our group, making sure we all felt comfortable (including those who hadn't been on bicycles for decades), and provided very clear directions for our self-guided tour. The ride was challenging without being overwhelming, and Mt. Vernon was magnificent. I only wish we had had more time to explore - but that's only because we spent too much time enjoying lunch!

Wow! I have never rented a bike and had it so expertly fit to me. Even the helmet was sized for me! The trail was well marked and absolutely beautiful! It was a hot day, and I just wish we had started out a little earlier. We were very glad that we took the Potomac River Cruise option for coming back because of the heat. The cruise was relaxing however there was not much information given by the moderator on the cruise.

The overall experience was great. The bikes were ok. The bicycle shop should have water bottles to sell or provide for a 9mile bike ride. The ride was beautiful and Mt. Vernon was stunning. The boat ride was fine. My family will remember this tour for years to come.

My son and I biked the trail to Mt Vernon and took the cruise back. The bikes were well maintained and the ride along the Potomac was beautiful. The path does parallel a main high trafficked road, so there is some noise along the way, but the scenery was excellent. It is a little hilly in parts. Take your time and if you are in a bit of shape going the 9 miles on this path will be a modest challenge. We self explored Mt Vernon which is definitely worth the trip. The return cruise was a slow and steady ride, about 90 minutes. The boat was in good shape and was very simple with bench seating or folding chairs. That is all you really need. We were entertained by a very knowledgable crew person who shared good details about various sites along the river. I thought this tour was a very good value considering it includes the bike rental, ticket to Mt Vernon and the return cruise.

It was a nice day but bike ride was more vigorous then we thought so by the time we got to Mount Vernon we were a little tired. We also thought it was a path along the river but you could only see the river in a few spots as it was mostly through wooded area. Mount Vernon was awesome and then the boat ride home was mostly like a water taxi.

The ride was beautiful but all bike rental places are not alike. I rode the first 4 miles struggling with the rear brake system. Took us longer than expected, missed the tour and barely had enough time to catch the boat back. Lesson learned...be sure to check your bike before you leave the shop!!
