Fraudulent company, full of liars and fraudsters - look elsewhere. Communication was poor and advertisements are misleading. Save yourself some money and book direct with a local business.

the entire trip was amazing, great way to see the sites. I suggest getting the bike insurance, as my friend blew a tire, and it was covered, while we waited for a new bike, the tour gide rode the flat bike and let my friend ride his.

The Lincoln Memorial and the National Mall area. A great tour and even though we went with the two hour tour this was just the right amount of time for our 7 year old, allowing us to see the essentials via a trailer bike attached to Dad's bike. Great fun and our guide was lovely.

We saw only the three major buildings of the government. Had hoped to see more of the monuments. I frankly booked the wrong tour although the guide was fine. Unfortunately the vast majority of this tour is spent riding to and from capital hill.

It was a great way to see Washington however the bike I received had gear issues. Make sure you test your bike(including shifting gears) before you start the tour. Biking up the few hills was difficult not being able to shift gears. The tour guide Josh was terrific! I’m
