Our tour guide Bo and back up guy Tim were fabulous. The electric bikes were fun and easy to operate. We were able to get very close to all attractions, hear the history from our knowledgable guide and then speed to the next stop. You literally can hit most attractions in a few hours, but also learn way more than... More

Three of us thoroughly enjoyed our 3.5 hour electric bike tour today. Our guide, Bo, was not only enthusiastic, but extremely knowledgeable about the multitude of sites we experienced throughout Washington. The bikes were fun and easy to ride/maneuver. We felt safe and completely at home on the road with our second guide who road at the back to ensure... More

We had some health issues and had to keep cancelling our planned tours while we attempted a DC trip. DC Insider Tours was super helpful and refunded us our money and wished us well. I hope to one day actually be able to take their tours! But for now am impressed with their customer service. Thanks!

I went on the DC in a Day tour with Matt on April 1st. He was a funny and engaging guide, and the six hours flew by, as we walked from Dupont Circle, to Georgetown, to the National Mall. He made the history come alive for us, and the walking itself wasn't strenuous. My personal highlight was the Watergate hotel,... More

Thanks for your review, it made us laugh! The Watergate definitely is an, um, "interesting-looking" building. But what it lacks in beauty, it makes up for in fascinating stories! We are thrilled to hear that your tour flew by! It is a phenomenal compliment, and always what we strive for on our tours. Matt does an excellent job bringing life... More

DC Insider Tours - Full Throttle Electric Bike Tour is a fantastic way to see all the major sites in DC in just a few hours. We are not great cyclists but found the electric bikes really easy to ride. The majority of the tour uses dedicated cycle lanes and there are guides at the front and rear of the... More

We started off the tour in Foggy Bottom with a very interesting and informative overview of the day's main events. Emily, our tour guide, was super easy going and energetic, as she brought us through centuries of US history and fun DC facts.
