Tour description

See DC's historical monuments and landmarks up close and personal on a 3-hour bike tour with an informative guide. Cruise around the National Mall to see some of the most famous sights in Washington DC, and take breaks with your guide 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 for families and those who may not have ridden a bike in an urban environment.

Your leisurely Washington DC bike tour starts just blocks from the National Mall. Meet your guide and be fitted on a bike that fits you best, and then set off to explore this historical, dynamic capital. Your guide, an experienced local, will share facts and interesting anecdotes about each site you visit along the tour. Your bike route covers monuments and memorials located on the National Mall and Potomac Tidal Basin. Cruise along shared bike and pedestrian paths and flat terrain while taking in the beautiful architecture (and perhaps keeping an eye out for the Secret Service). Visit Washington Monument, the stately white obelisk that honors the first US president, and pedal over to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, a 3-acre (1.2-hectare) tribute to those who served in the Vietnam War. Check out more landmarks like the National World War II Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, the Martin Luther King Jr Memorial, The FDR Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial and then ride through the city back to the starting point, where your tour concludes.
