All monuments in one tour

This bike tour was a complete overview of all DC monuments including Lincoln, Vietnam, Korea, WW2, ML King, Roosevelt and Jefferson. The getyourguide picture shows a group in front of the white house, this was not included in our tour. The biking was extremely easy. Our guide was a beginner, but still did a great job. I would definitely recommend this tour. They also offer a nighttime biking tour, but I would recommend the daytime tour if the weather is not too hot.

Great tour, great guide!

Being on a bike makes sightseeing fun, and in DC it is the BEST way to see all the sights. The equipment was top notch, and the tour was well organized and very informative. Tujon, our guide, was incredibly well versed on the history of Washington and always had some fun fact to relate about all of the sights. LOVED it, and would highly recommend this option over any other sightseeing tours (bus, etc.).
