Judy was an excellent tour guide! It’s not something I would have done by just renting a bike and riding around so I’m glad we decided to do the tour! Riding over the bridge is a bit stressful as walkers are unaware of what’s going...More

Really enjoyed the ride! San Francisco is perfect for bike tourism and the performance bike was perfect.

Fantastic tour seeing some amazing sites and photo opportunities. Our guide Adam was so enthusiastic about San Francisco and made the trip special. This is a must do trip.

Very good tour guide. The hills were harder than expected and the bridge was difficult to navigate. Overall a good trip but pricey for what you get and you need to take the ferry back.

It’s an unforgettable experience! Don’t miss it. Spectacular views, and you’re joined by lots of others. Ferry back was crowded but doable.

We had a great experience renting bikes from Bay City Bikes. Everyone is super friendly and nice, and the bikes are in excellent condition. Traveler tip: don't buy the ferry tickets in advance–there's a lot of waiting time to get from Sausalito to SF. It's...More

Had an amazing time going from San Francisco to Sausalito by bike. Hard biking skills may be required sometimes (depending on the time you have to make it). Be careful with the time for the last ferry from Sausalito to SF, if you are going...More

Excellent service and bikes. Very comfortable. One bike wouldn’t change rings, but Bay City replaced it immediately and we were on our way.

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
