Overview

See Washington DC's historical monuments and memorials up close and personal on a 3-hour bike tour with an informative guide. Cruise around the National mall and the Tidal basin to see some of the most famous sights, and take breaks to walk around and explore attractions like the Lincoln memorial.
Our Monuments tour does cross streets but there is no street riding making it the perfect option forfamilies and those who may not have ridden a bike in an urban environment.
On a bike, you're able to see so much more than on foot or on a bus! If you've never taken a city city tour before, DC is a perfect city to give it a try. We know that once you've toured by bike, it will be the first thing you look for on your next trip to another city!
Please note that the "what to expect section" provides a sample itinerary and you may tour in a slightly different order based on what may be going on in this busy city on the day of your tour.

    Very good tour. Nice selection of sites. Can’t imagine doing it during peak time. We were there during shoulder season and we were dodging pedestrians left and right. My only complaint- a huge one that brought a four star review to three- is that they have no restroom for customers. I just handed you $250 and you’re gonna call me “the public” and say no restrooms!? After a three hour tour too?Ridiculous.

    Great tour! We saw the monuments and for great insights. The bikes were perfect. This was a great experience

  • 24-Nov-2022

    Tour with the group and learned a lot of historic stories. Also a lot of interesting spots. Both riding and sightseeing are excellent

  • 21-Nov-2022

    A great way to see most of the memorials. Wow but it was cold with a fresh northerly making it fresh experience.

  • 14-Nov-2022

    This was a great way to see many of the important monuments in the Washington DC area. I would likely have never seen so many of them in just 3 hours if I tried to figure it out on my own. Plus, the guide was very knowledgeable about details and history around each monument that I could never had know otherwise!

  • 30-Oct-2022

    Had an amazing time; Joe was an awesome tour guide. Was the perfect way to see a lot of the major monuments and save our legs from walking.

  • 30-Oct-2022

    Excellent way to visit the monuments. The bikes were in great condition (I had a Cannondale), the guide (Shawn) was very knowledgeable and the pace was easy. We had ample time to walk each monument and take photos. Our morning ride was small (9 riders) which was much smaller than the afternoon rides I saw the next couple of days. The shop attendants (Jason & Kenny) were friendly and helpful.

  • 25-Oct-2022

    Kate was a wonderful tour guide who showed us all the monuments we wanted to see and more. I would highly recommend it!

    Riding bikes with my grandson was the best part of this activity. This is a perfect way to see the monuments with children (who normally have a short attention span).
