What a fun way to visit the monuments and navigate through downtown Washington, DC. One tip: Bring a flashlight to aid in reading quotes at the monuments.

Knowledge was decent, bikes comfortable, pace good. Bike lights weren't very good and some paths not well lit. The guides were very nice and efficient just need better lights to be safer.

Our trip consisted of myself, gf, and 10yo son and it was amazing! Ignacio was our guide (I don't know if I spelled that correctly), and he was beyond knowledgeable and genuinely enthusiastic and made for a great informative and fun trip. I'm also a veteran and he took the time to point out some special site details at the monuments just for myself. I would highly recommend and the lighting of the city and monuments at night was truly beautiful. Seriously book a trip.

Loved seeing the sights at night. My 12 and 14 year old kids loved it! Your guides friendly and knowledgeable. Wish we had a bit more time to linger and see the monuments but it was great! Beat the heat of the day and the area where the bikes left from was nice with things to do as we arrived early.

Not having lights on the bikes in the dark that’s not good. The guide was great. The bike didn’t have a ringer That work. The brakes were in need of attention.
