Mikey was awesome thanks for a fabulous sunny ride. From prior 37 to Sausalito and back. Joiners was a great spot for Beers and Lunch.
Excellent guided tour
Brian_R, Oct 2023
Marcus was our tour guide. Such a wonderful day with deep and interesting history lessons all throughout the tour. The electric bike was essential and we did not struggle or perspire at all. 100% recommend
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Brian, wow 100% recommendation is pretty good! Glad you enjoyed your guided tour with Marcus. Congratulations on zero perspiration on your bike ride!
Definite "Wow" Experience - Do it!
Claire_L, Oct 2023
What a fantastic way to see the Golden Gate bridge (and surrounding area) by cycling over it. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had tips for the best places to get photos. One thing I would say is, if you aren't confident on a bike or haven't used one for years, go with the electric bike option as one member of our party struggled to keep up!
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Claire, so glad you had a "wow" experience on your guided tour with us. Electric bikes are definitely a fantastic way to upgrade your ride!
A must-do in San Fran!

Firstly we were given the warmest of welcomes from Mikey. He couldn’t have been more helpful. Such a great guy. Next Orla our tour guide was simply fabulous. Took us to some amazing sights and was so informative. Raz joined us to keep an eye on the bikes. Between the three of them it was an incredibly memorable tour
Response from Host, Nov 2023
So glad you enjoyed interacting with our team! Happy we were able to provide you with a memorable tour during your visit to San Francisco.
Beautiful ride through SF
John_G, Aug 2023
We had a great experience on the Golden Gate Bridge tour! On the way to the bridge, our guide told us a lot about how San Francisco began and grew through the years, along with the history of the neighborhoods and landmarks we passed. Sausalito was beautiful; unfortunately, we had to leave early to catch our flight home and did not get to explore it as much as we would have liked. We chose the e-bike option; would definitely recommend. We did not need the assist for most of the ride, but when we did it was easy to use and much appreciated!
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Hi John, glad you had fun on your guided tour! Yes, the e-bikes are definitely the way to go. We just added more e-bikes into our fleet!
Peddle peddle
Kristen_w, Aug 2023
Great tour of the city. Fun, interesting, friendly and fast at shop to get you in your way! What a great way to experience the bridge!!!
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Kristen, glad you had fun on your "peddle peddle" ride! We agree, the best way to experience the Golden Gate Bridge is via bicycle.
E Bike is the way to Go
Robert_G, Jul 2023
The Irish guy Adam was a great tour guide, for someone that’s only been here for two months giving tours he sure knew a lot about the area, and love listening to his stories about Ireland was great too at the warming hut, entire experience was awesome, decided not to take the ferry back and just ride the bikes around to our leisure back to the starting point it was a blast
Worst while
Claire_D, Jul 2023
Adam was a excellent guide. The tour was fantastic bikes great quality and flet safe. We learnt alot and enjoyed the few hills!
Great tour with a great tour guide!!!
Denis_G, Jul 2023
While the price is a little on the steep side (we took e-bikes) the views were spectacular and our guide (Joelle) was extremely knowledgeable… and super cool (of course it it helped that we ended up being the only couple in the tour… so was very intimate)! Was a great way to see and explore SF and Sausalito! And well worth the price!
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Denis, so happy to hear you enjoyed your "private" guided tour with Joelle! She loves sharing her knowledge of SF with our guests.
Great guided tour of the Golden Gate Bridge
Adrian_F, Jun 2023
Great guided tour by Mark, we'll worth the money. We also carried on using the bikes to go around Golden Gate Park
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Adrian, glad you found Mark worth the money. We do, too!
Amazing views
Victoria_K, May 2023
The bike ride was so scenic and beautiful!! I used the eBike and it was very doable and enjoyable. The Golden Gate Bridge was foggy (1pm was my time) but it was still amazing… and cold lol!
Response from Host, May 2023
Hi Victoria, so happy you enjoyed the beautiful scenery on your ride. The fog has cleared for the summer so come visit us again anytime!
A beautiful way to see...
Bronwen_M, May 2023
A beautiful way to see San Francisco, really enjoyed this e-bike tour. Very friendly and helpful guides.
Response from Host, May 2023
Hi There, So happy you enjoyed your e-bike tour!
Beautiful Ride.
Diane_M, May 2023
The ride through San Francisco and across the Golden Gate Bridge was incredible. The fog started lifting as we approached the bridge and by the time we got across and down into Sausalito the weather was perfect. Walked around Sausalito for awhile and then hopped a nice ride on the ferry back to San Francisco.
Response from Host, May 2023
Hey Diane, Sounds like the weather cooperated for your ride! So glad you enjoyed your ride with us.
Great guided tour!...
Yevgeny_B, May 2023

Super fun bike ride with my son
Anush_M, Mar 2023
Excellent trip, great guided ride, nice bike with good storage in front handlebar zipper bag. Did not realize there would be a $14 ferry trip in advance but would not have returned without the ferry.
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Anush, glad you and your son had fun on your guided tour. Returning on the ferry is a nice little treat after the ride. Come see us again!
Amazing guide and great experience!
