Took the Monuments Tour by Night with 2 adults and 2 twelve-year-olds. All agreed that this was the best thing we did in DC (on a trip which included tours of the White House, Capitol, FBI, Bureau of Engraving, Washington Monument, and Mount Vernon, as well as Arlington National Cemetary, the Marines Sunset Parade, the National Zoo, and the Smithsonian Air & Space, American History, and Natural History Museums). We got to see all the monuments by bicycle, which was a welcome change from all the walking. The ride was not hard, and even our novice rider had no difficulty keeping up. Our tour guide (Tujon) was both knowledgeable and entertaining, and he went out of his way to engage the children (calling them by name etc.) and keep them interested. This tour made visiting the monuments (which might otherwise be boring for children) the highlight of the trip.
I enjoyed this three hour trip with our guide Cameron who was friendly and knowledgeable. We saw some very interesting sights. I found it a bit too slow and would have preferred a slightly faster pace or to have seen more but in all fairness there was a nine year old girl in our group of three. She was a competent cyclist. The bikes were good Trek bikes and well maintained and the helmets were good quality. I would recommend this company and bike ride. Washington DC is a lovely city! Thank you.
Was a great experience all around. We were a little rushed due to impending rain but the overall experience well worth it. Our guide Georgia was full of info and interesting tidbits. I would have liked more than 10-12 minutes at each spot to take in each monument or memorial, but understood we were working with a time frame and around an impending rain storm. The bike tour was so much better than a bus ride, I would highly recommend!
This is the best way to see all of the monuments. The lights at night are beautiful, Kevin and Conner were awesome, and the ride is do-able for all skill levels. Highly recommended!
Cameron is an amazing tourguide, so enthusiastic and he knows a lot of fun facts. I loved every minute of the tour.......
