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.

Your leisurely Washington DC bike tour starts at a central city location. Meet your guide and select the 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 city bike lanes 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.
