Between museums, historical sites, monuments, restaurants, and more, there are many tours you could choose for a visit to our nation’s capital. But if you’re like most visitors — including us! — you know that not many tours show you exactly what you want to see with your schedule and pace in mind. That’s why we’re now offering tailor-made adventures in Washington, D.C. — tours that are personalized to your pace and interests, and that get you up close and personal with all there is to do and see in D.C. Read on to learn more about our tailor-made adventure holidays, how they work, and how you can experience one!
Private Bike Experience – D.C.’s Monuments by Night
You’ve heard of walking tours and bus tours … but how about a biking tour? It may sound out of the ordinary, but a private bike tour is one of the most intimate and relaxing ways to see all of D.C.’s historical monuments and sights. This private 2 ½ – 3-hour bike experience allows you the same flexibility as a walking tour, but adds the ability to cover much more distance — and it can be customized to see your favorite monuments.
Biking D.C.’s monuments at night allows you to see all the historical sights while avoiding the heat, traffic, and the sheer number of tourists of D.C. in the daytime. Plus, all of the iconic monuments you see become even more inspiring at night when the white marble is illuminated in contrast to the night sky. The result is a private, peaceful journey through exactly what you want to experience in D.C.
So here’s how it works: Your private bike guide will meet you at your hotel, review a recommended route with the best night sights and customize your bicycle ride to see additional sights you want to visit. Your guide will provide you with bikes, brand new premium souvenir water bottles, snacks and lights and is able to carry some (if not all) of your gear.
This three-hour private bike tour is offered year-round — we recommend this night tour, especially in the summer to avoid the hot sun during daytime hours, but spring and fall are also beautiful and ideal seasons for this experience. Learn more and sign up for a private bike experience here.
D.C. by Land & Sea – Private Bike & Boat Tour
If you’re looking for Washington D.C. adventures, nothing beats a bike AND boat tour. Hop on a bike and explore all the monuments and historical buildings first. Then you cruise along the Potomac, visit the Wharf, and have dinner at Georgetown. What a day!
Our private bike and boat tour is an active adventure to see the best of D.C. both by land and from the water — two great ways to avoid traffic and relax while seeing the sights. This intimate experience with the best private guides in D.C. gives you a chance to get up close to the sights of Washington D.C. and then relax from your private boat to soak up the sun and views from the water.
Here are the details: Our D.C. bike tour expert will meet you in your hotel lobby and guide you on a 4-hour bicycle ride — including bikes, gear, and a souvenir water bottle — around everything you want to see in Washington D.C. After lunch near the water, you’ll walk a few hundred feet to your private sport boat with a licensed U.S. Coast Guard Captain, who will take you out on the tidal Potomac River to view the beautiful shoreline, key memorials, and other sights. This D.C. experience operates from March – November. Learn more and sign up for a private bike & boat tour here.
