Good overview of all the key sites. It was well-paced and interesting. Considering the summer heat, biking vs walking made a lot of sense.

Shane is an amazing tour guide and gave us insightful historical context of the sites. Took the tour with my wife and 2 teenage sons. Everyone enjoyed themselves and learned something. We went on the tour day 1 of our stay so we could figure out where we wanted to spend more time later. Highly recommended and tip your tour guide.;)

I absolutely loved this tour! It was perfect for those who are interested in seeing all of the DC monuments and memorials. It would’ve taken hours or even days to get through all of these landmarks, but this tour allowed me to get through them within three hours. It was very informative and fun bike tour. David was an awesome tour guide and was very knowledgeable about DC, its history and its monuments. I thought it great that we were able to hop on and off the bikes throughout the tour to take pictures and videos instead of just cruising by them and keeping it pushing. I was extremely pleased with this tour. It was worth the money and I’ll recommend it to anyone who travels to Washington DC.

Great overview of Monuments, while getting some exercise!

In 3 hours you are able to see multiple monuments up close. It is true you only have about 10 minutes at a location, but this is the only way I would’ve been able to see SO much in such a short amount of time. It was a friendly group atmosphere. We had a very knowledgeable guide. (It gives you a layout of the city, and you can always go back and spend more time at any spots tgat gave more meaning for you, later in your trip.
