The tour was a perfect way to see 8 monuments. We enjoyed our guide John. The evening tour was great to miss the heat of the day and crowds. You get about 10 minutes to take pictures and see the monuments up close at each stop. I would do it again. Our family of 5 including kids 9, 11, 13 all really enjoyed it.

Highly recommend this night bike tour!! We really enjoyed the entire experience, from the friendliness of the staff, to the concern for safety during our ride, to the knowledge of our tour guide, to the amount of time we were allowed at each site, as well as, the overall length of the tour. Would definitely do it again!!

Best thing we did in DC hands down!

We took our children ages 12 & 10. It was perfect for their ability level on bikes and much cooler than being out in the middle of the day. We were able to see all the monuments and learn about each one along the way. The entire family enjoyed this fun way to explore DC.
