Customer Reviews

  • This is the way to see a new city! Steve was a great guide & took us in areas that you would never see on a bus tour. This is a 4 hour tour with a 30 minute rest to grab something to eat. I was a little hesitant because of the large hills in San Francisco but with the electric bike, it was easy & enjoyed the whole trip. Great trip for your first day here, you learn so much about the area & you get restaurant advice. Great job Steve you made our trip special.

  • Fantastic Bike Tour with Adam We took the "Streets of San Francisco" tour with Adam for 4 hours. The electric bikes were wonderful to have on the hills. I did not have to exert myself at all. The tour guide Adam did a great job explaining the sights and telling the group about the back story of all the attractions, buildings, history of the city. I highly recommend this tour.
