Frequently Asked Questions

About Pedicabs

Are pedicabs a good way to see the National Mall and the monuments?

Pedicabs are the best way to see everything. You go at your own pace, with a permanent 360 degree view and your personal tour guide. Pedicabs can get in close to venues that buses simply can’t. Safe, convenient and comfortable – pedicabs are the best way to see the National Mall, the museums and the memorials.

Are you licensed? Are you insured?

Yes. We are licensed by the National Park Service. To obtain this license, we must prove $1,000,000 worth of insurance.

Can elderly or handicapped passengers be able to get in and out of a pedicab easily?

Yes. It is easier to get in and out of the pedicab than in and out of a car. The pedicab comes equipped with a step and a handrail. We can get right up to the curb to make for a shorter step. We frequently accommodate a fold-up wheelchair along with two passengers. Wheelchairs are also frequently available at the visitor centers at each of the large monuments.

Can I get a ride at the last minute?

You can always call or text 703 231 9882 for a ride or a tour. If I am available, I will come to pick you up immediately. If I am not available, I can often dispatch another pedicab tour guide to go and pick you up. For tours, you can reserve in advance, either on this website or by telephone.

Do you accept credit cards?

Yes. Mastercard, Visa, Amex, Discover. I carry a hand-held device called the Square which I use to swipe your credit card. For a tour booking, I may require a $15 deposit. If done over the phone, this may require you to give me your credit card information so I can enter it manually. Otherwise, you can make this deposit via Paypal. I personally also accept electronic payments such as Apple Pay, Venmo, Paypal, and Zelle. Every one of our tour guides will accept credit cards, but not all will accept every form of electronic payment as well.

Do you do night tours?

A twilight tour of the monuments is a highlight of many people’s trip to Washington. Unlike the bus and Segway night tours, a pedicab tour can include a stop at every monument. And take you to your favorite restaurant afterwards.

Does the pedicab have a canopy to ward off the rain/sun?

Yes. I leave the canopy open on the sides for better viewing. In case of rain, the sides come down and I have a plastic rain cover that can keep you entirely dry with a good clear view. 

How many people can you carry in one pedicab?

Roomy for 2 adults along with one or two small children. Two large adults or 3 thin adults can ride comfortably. Three medium sized adults fit snugly — a slight loss of comfort depending on the size of the adults.  Three large adults probably should take two pedicabs.  Four adults always need to take two pedicabs. We commonly take two adults with two children plus a stroller.

What happens if I (the customer) am running late?

Please call/text me at 703 231 9882 and let me know. If you are unable to contact me (i.e. riding the Metro), I will wait 15-30 minutes for you before I leave. In general, you must pay me starting from the agreed upon meeting time unless you have let me know in advance.
