Summer in DC is so hot, so after spending the day inside at museums, we needed to get outside when it cooled off and move a bit with my two sons, ages 8 and 11. It was the perfect amount of riding and learning for us all. Our guide, MaryAnne, was so informative and friendly. She even had ponchos ready when it rained on us halfway through. Somehow the rain made it more fun! Looking back, it was both my kids and my favorite part of the trip. Definitely recommend!

This is the perfect way to see the National Mall. Super easy bike ride and we saw all the memorials/monuments. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and great to chat with. I HIGHLY recommend the night tour as it is less crowded, cooler weather, and the monuments are stunning when lit up.

I was not able to use my Night Bike Tour reservation primarily because I had a hand injury and even though I called 2 days in advance I was still charged. When I called the D.C. office they said it was out of their control. That is a despicable way to do business. I plan to utilize my 1600 Facebook friends to denigrate this company as much as possible.

Our guide was outstanding! Very knowledgeable, personable, capable. He had a remarkable treasure trove of knowledge about DC, American history and the monuments and memorials. It was a beautiful evening -- which helped -- and the equipment was all in good condition and as advertised. My four granddaughters aged 14-15 and I aged 70 all had a great time. Although I've lived in DC for almost 50 years, and have visited the Mall many times, I learned a lot last night.
