Good but start point is far away & accent of guide is hard to get

The tour was surprisingly good - we went to many places and the guide gave useful info. It is a good mixture of sitting in the bus and walking around the monuments - so many of them are outside and require good 15 to 30 min to see. Only issue was that he guide had a very heavy accent and it was hard to understand him. Also, the starting point that is marked on the maps is wrong - bus leaves from the city bus station which is some 30 min away from downtown. Check that! Also, it is best to print out the ticket. In our case, they did a compromise and let us forward us the confirmation but it was on the border. Otherwise, great route, good info, and really enjoyable. At night all of the monuments are lit up in just gorgeous colors so it creates amazing atmosphere.

Washington, DC: After Dark 3-Hour Guided Evening Tour Reviewed by

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.

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.

A wonderful service to use to get around DC and see it all!

Jorge did a fabulous job and was knowledgeable of DC and extremely friendly. Not having to worry about parking and driving around in unfamiliar territory was comforting. We would have never been able to see as much as we did without this service. We finished a little early and Jorge took the time to take us to one of his favorite areas! Highly recommend and when we come back we will hire this service again! Thanks so much!!

Convience, comfort & knowledge @ it’s BEST

There’s no other tour that provides as many destinations in the comfort of a spacious SUV with wonderful AC, curb service, water & a very knowledgeable driver! Jeorge was great very service oriented! So glad we choose a private tour over the hot crowded buses that you waste time waiting for & don’t know where it’s legal to park.
