It has been nearly 2 weeks since our bike tour with Jeff, and our kids still talk about it daily! Jeff was a wonderful guide who wowed us with his knowledge of DC, and was so great with our kids. He even had a special carrier for our 1 year old! The bike tour was the highlight of our trip because we got an up close look at some of the most wonderful monuments and got to explore with a historian and learn so many neat facts. It was pure magic and I cannot recommend Jeff and DC Cycling Concierge more highly. Thanks, Jeff! We will be back!

Well Thank You! How flattering that your family still talks about our bike ride together weeks later, much less daily. So glad you enjoyed getting to see and learn about so many of the great things in and around DC and that it was "pure magic." I look forward to your return - there is plenty more to explore!

I am a long-time Washington DC resident so when a friend visiting with his family asked me and my 11-year old son to join them for a bike tour through DC, I was hesitant. I could not have been more wrong. What a wonderful way to see all the sites around this great city. And Jeff made the whole process safe, welcoming and enjoyable the whole way. I really appreciated the way he weaved the history of the city and our country into stories that kept my son and my friend's children engaged the entire way. It was a bit windy, but Jeff was prepared with gloves, wind breakers and hats to wear under the helmets. All the equipment was well maintained and clean. And I never felt rushed at any time. Great pictures and great memories.

Definitely recommend.

Seeing the city by bike was the perfect pace and allowed our family to take in all the monuments and city life in a way that was fun for all age groups.

Jeff took our family on a fantastic tour of the DC sights that the whole family absolutely loved. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining with lots of stories that both the adults and kids in the group found engaging.

We enjoyed the day tour so much that we booked the Monuments at Night tour for the next evening. This was also great! We saw all the major sites illuminated and got to experience some of the fun new areas in DC at night.

Overall, the two bike tours were incredible and unforgettable!

Thank you Ramit for your very kind praise and the ultimate compliment of having me guide you on a second ride the next day! And as you saw, there was plenty more to explore. I couldn't agree with you more (biases aside) - exploring DC by bike is the best way to cover lots of ground and get up and close to the sites. All while connecting the dots personally with some healthy activity and wonderful fun. Thanks so much for allowing me to show you and your wonderful family around DC!

Our family of four had a wonderful time seeing DC with Jeff as our guide! Our boys (ages 9 and 13) thoroughly enjoyed the trip, as did the adults. Jeff was incredibly knowledgeable, and led us through a fun, multi-hour tour of the highlights of the city. It was a great way to both learn about the city by combining the physical activity with the guided tour (no way would the kids have absorbed as much on a bus or other tour). Jeff was also a very safe guide, both in terms of road rule and ensuring the equipment and bikes were COVID safe. Would highly recommend!

It was so fun showing you and your boys around DC - so wonderful to be outside and feeling like some of the good things are getting back to awesome. And the fact that we could get so much closer to the Capitol Building with some fencing coming down was a wonderful thing. Yes, I agree, the mix of adventure, activity and (dare I say it?) education, is a sweet recipe for fun, learning, and making memories. Thanks again for letting me show you all around our beautiful city!

Our family’s favorite activity in DC! Jeff thinks of everything (water, snacks, gloves) and the tour is well paced, fun and informative. Jeff clearly customizes the facts and some of the stops to his guests’ interests/background, making it extra special. Great pace for our 10 year old but interesting facts for the teenager/adults too. Wish we’d booked a longer one - 2/3 hours goes by fast. Thanks for the memorable tour!

Jeff is simply fantastic. We thought we knew a lot about DC, since we live here, but his knowledge of history taught our entire group something new! He answered questions and managed to keep us all in good moods (a rare ability for a stranger, lol). On top of that, he led us through neighborhood streets, hills, and traffic safely and confidently, which was important since our groups had bike experts and novices.

He made sure everyone felt safe and comfortable with the bikes before we set off, and showed each person how to use the electric battery (if they had chosen an electric bike.) Jeff also showed us a map of our potential route and was open to making changes based on our requests. We even stopped during the ride to say hi to another family member!

He also provided snacks.

Jeff mixes his passion for biking and his enthusiasm for DC to create a perfect experience for tourists and residents alike.

I LOVE showing DC area folks around some of my favorite sites of DC as much as I enjoy orienting and sharing sites with guests from out of town. The awe of discovery and learning the history or backstories of some building, memorials or areas that have changes are just wonderful. I'm so glad you and your group had a great time and enjoyed my dorky humor and antic and kept you all having fun too. Thanks so much for your kinds praise!

Recently brought three generations to DC for a spring break trip and our family bike tour was the highlight! We were a bit nervous about our 6 year old daughter navigating the crowded mall and monument areas, but Jeff made us feel comfortable, informed and safe our entire ride. My mom (mid-60s) easily navigated and loved the opportunity to see so much at our pace and without miles and miles of walking. My history buff husband and son loved the details Jeff provided about DC as we went. I had a great time watching my family experience DC for the first time.

Coordinating the bike tour was easy. We opted to have it in the afternoon. We started at a museum we had spent the morning at and ended at a metro station that got us to dinner.

Can’t say enough about our experience. Thank you Jeff for the great trip! The private bike tour was totally the way to go for our family. Let us tailor the tour to what we wanted to see and skip things we had already been too.

Hopeful I will find another opportunity for a bike tour in DC!

Thanks Kate - I do love how bicycling around DC is great for young at heart (no matter what age!) and the younger ones too. It was a pleasure showing your whole family around and I'm delighted it was the highlight of your trip!

Our family of 6 had a wonderful time exploring the monuments in a fun and efficient way. Jeff and his colleague Charles are top notch handling every step of the process in a friendly and professional manner. We have seen the monuments with a private driver and doing it on bikes is much easier and the only way to go. From being flexible in time and planning due to range of ages, having the bikes set up to the correct height with custom water bottles on each bike, to giving relevant historical information at each stop, and ensuring safety for navigating the city, this private custom experience is a great way to start any trip to DC and we will certainly do it again!

Wonderful to hear you so enjoyed your experience! We do love sharing all that DC has to offer, and as you noted, so many places are so much more accessible by bike, and when things get busier like they do with the cherry blossoms, this is many magnitudes more the case. Thanks so much for letting us show you around!!!

Hands down one of the highlights of our trip to DC. The tour with Jeff was the ideal way to see the sights of DC especially with 10 year old triplets. This was their first trip to DC and they still are talking about the bike ride and seeing the sights. Jeff was great with the kids and as a father of twins himself was awesome at tailoring his highlights to them, and telling stories that they loved. Bikes are a great way to slow the pace down to truly appreciate the sights around you and the city of DC. We look forward to our next trip with the kids and will even plan a longer ride with Jeff next time. Don't pass this tour up.!
