We wanted to see the monuments lit up at night and this was the perfect way to see everything in one evening. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and had interesting anecdotes about the monuments. And just riding the Segways was a blast! Definitely recommend.

Any visitor to Washington, D.C. who wants to see everything will quickly discover that there is an unbelievable amount of walking involved. On a segway tour we covered in 2 1/2 hours what would have taken us days. We went from one end of DC...More

We went on the morning 3-hour Bicycle tour of the Capitol and Monuments. Andy was a very pleasant and informative guide. We were disappointed, however, in the choice of stops. For example, toward the end, we only stopped near the Lincoln Memorial and talked about...More

If you do nothing else in Washington DC, this is must. Kirsten, our guide, was friendly and knowledgeable. It's a great way to get around all the monuments on the mall, relatively quickly compared to walking. As well as being enjoyable.

I'm so sorry we missed this question! We do not have a minimum age for our bike tours. All riders are welcome and we have plenty of kids bikes and trailers to carry all the little ones. I hope this helps!

Thanks for your message! We do in fact have bikes for all ages on tour. I would say the tagalong would be best for a five year old, but we also have 20" bikes, 24" bikes, and trailers for younger children. Let us know if... More

This is a group bike tour led by a guide. If you want to bike on your own, you can also rent city bikes that are located in certain common areas in D.C., but I'm not sure the price of those.
