    Fun and safe! Guided small group tour made
    This a highlight during our DC visit.
    First time for us and found we felt confident in short order. Helmets and instruction provided and lead by a great guide - highly recommend it.

    As a regular (season pass) kayak and Class I single shell renter, I offer that Thompsons (and the Key Bridge location) are a superb and underutilized recreational resource for residents and visitors alike. While you have to be qualified to rent rowing shells, you can take paddleboards, canoes and kayaks out without any precondition. Great exercise, a peaceful activity with exceptional views of the Lincoln Memorial, the bridges, Teddy Roosevelt island usually with wildlife, the Three Sisters Islands and on up the river. Easy to rent except when the school shells are coming and going, early in the morning. Easy access from Foggy Bottom.... welcome to one of the best deals for water-minded people in DC.

    Needed a double stroller and we needed it asap. A lot of other places didn't want to rent out their equipment on such short notice. I was recommended Cloud of Goods through a colleague of mine and when I called for one; they were so awesome about renting one to us.

    Anyways we got it delivered and it came fully maintained and clean. I felt comfortable using it. Gave it back in the same condition. Great service, highly recommend Cloud of Goods.

    The bikes are no longer in great shape, so make sure you select your bike carefully. The docking stations are sometimes full and then you cannot end your ride. We ended up paying for the time that we visited the Library, then did another ride and found an open dock. But generally quite easy (and cheap $8 for 24 hrs).

    One of the most fun things we have done in a long time, we will remember it and cherish the memory for many years. We started off a little nervously but we got the hang of it really quickly and were able to negotiate our way through the tourists. Seeing the sights in the evening while the sun was going down was very special. Arron was very helpful and gave us a little bit of confidence to go for it. We would highly recommend it to anyone wishing to see the sights of Washington in 2 hours!

    We rented two bikes and enjoyed the afternoon along the Mt. Vernon trail. Nice help getting set up with bikes!

    Excellent tour, it is by far the best way to know Washington DC in two hours.
    And the tour guide know everything and is also very safe.

    One of Shaod's employees driving a Shaod company truck in DC hit my personal vehicle. Shaod's employee did not have insurance information in the vehicle, Shaod would not answer his calls, nor would Shaod answer my phone calls. He would not take responsibility for his company vehicle damaging my personal vehicle. I do not recommend this company because a legitimate company would have taken responsibility for their employee actions in a company vehicle. Further, the company vehicle had expired plates, which suggests Shaod's company does not conduct proper maintenance on their vehicles.
