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.

    She answered all questions and had very positive attitude at all time. I recommend this Tour and would take it again!

  • 08-Jul-2019

    Perfect....Emily was amazing. If you are bringing kids (ours were between 10 to 11), then consider doing this monument tour instead of a guided bus monument tour. Our boys appreciated being active, checking out the sites and moving on to the next one. Not too long, not too short. This bike guided monument tour was a winner!

  • 03-Jul-2019

    Fantastic tour led by Cam! We went round all the main monuments, very knowledgable and had a great time. Thank you!

  • 03-Jul-2019

    I haven't been on a bike in years and was a little worried, but riding around the monuments was a blast, even for the 70 year old! I highly recommend this tour.

  • 16-Apr-2019

    We had a group of 6 and everyone loved this tour. All of us have had tours before so this was a great way to see the sites again. Is was just the right amount of time - it was causal and relaxing. Our guide Brian was friendly and provided interesting information on the monuments/memorials. I would recommend this tour.

  • 16-Jul-2018

    The Bike Tour was Awesome. Our guide, Joe, gave us interesting information at every stop. I had my grandson and his buddy 13 yrs. and they loved the tour. Due to traffic, we were late but the company called us and re-scheduled our tour for the next one in 30 minutes. I highly recommend the tour and company.

  • 10-Jul-2018

    This was a great way to cover all of the monuments.
    My girls are 7 and 8 years old which was a perfect age. It would be difficult for younger ages, as there were no bike lanes and maneuvering through sidewalk crowds was tricky at times. Would have liked a little more time at monuments with quotes. Our guide was great.

  • 11-Apr-2018

    It was a great bike tour. Kudos to Cameron Cam, he was a wonderful tour guide full of enthusiasm and shared lots of knowledge at all monuments.

  • 23-Feb-2018

    Loved this tour! It was a hot day in July and with two teens it was great not to have to walk all the memorials. The cool breeze while on the bike was refreshing!

  • 08-Jan-2018

    Had a blast!! Will definitely do it again!
