My husband and I love to travel and experience where we are. A night bike tour of the major monuments in DC seemed optimal. It was! My pictures don’t do it justice as most are on my husbands phone, but the tour, the experience, the reality was amazing! I couldn’t recommend this and our guide, Joe, more. From the start they facility was warm and accommodating. Offering us water for the ride, reflective vests and picking the right bike and helmet for our needs. Joe KNOWS DC! We learned so much; his passionate knowledge was infectious and made each stop more memorable and poignant. This city holds so much American history and we really felt connected with each passing stop. The Capitol Building, the Supreme Court and the Lincoln Memorial were absolute faves! We would do it again in a heartbeat with Joe! Always safe, knowledgeable and ready to answer and support. He was amazing and a perfect guide for this tour! Thank you Joe!!!

Great trip! John did an excellent job explaining many interesting facts about the stops. This trip allowed me to see monuments I’ve never been to and probably would not have walked far to see. We got all that in within 3 hours and didn’t waste 3 days of exhaustion hauling kids around doing it! Highly recommend and worth the price!

James was a great guide and had so much history to share. He really took the time to get to know everyone in the group. We’ve been to DC many times but had never seen most of the stops on this tour, so glad we went. Even the grumpy teen boys loved it!
