This is the most fun and easy way to get around DC. There are bike stands and convenient locations that are usually supplied with enough bikes for family and friends. It's much easer than walking and fighting the crowds. Much quicker to get from one...More

This is the best way to see Washington DC. We had a great tour guide who really knew his stuff. It was extremely hot and he made sure to stop plenty for water. There was enough time to see the highlights.

I'm so sorry we missed this question! We do not have a minimum age for our bike tours. All riders are welcome and we have plenty of kids bikes and trailers to carry all the little ones. I hope this helps!
