You may think you are in decent shape until you have to climb the hills around the Golden Gate. Great tour, I would do it again, just would probably do it on a weekday instead of a Saturday. Less traffic. That would make taking the boat back with your bike from Sausalito much easier.
Our bike tour was everything we hoped for and more! Our guide, Robert, was exceptional! His knowledge of the history of the city and the perfect picture spots made for a great day for our family. The bike rental shop was friendly and helpful as we had a switch the day of our reservation. I would highly recommend this tour. We got so much more out of it then if we did it on our own. So worth the money! Plan to ride the ferry home. It is a great way to end the day.
This Golden Gate Bridge bike tour was simply amazing. Our tour guide, Alex, was very knowledgeable and shared some interesting information about San Francisco and the surrounding area. The tour lasted about two hours (although expect it to take about three hours if the tour group is larger - there were only a total of four people in our tour). Although we chose against it we did had the opportunity to take a self guided ride after the tour had finished. Included is a ferry ticket back to San Francisco - the ferry trip itself was stunning! Alex was very friendly and personable which made the tour really enjoyable. Although we encountered heavy fog for most of the ride we still had a great time and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting San Francisco to take this tour.
great ride across the bridge, we had electric bikes and they made the uphill effortless, beautiful views of the san francisco bay
A very small group of 3 plus our tour leader Alex, who was awesome providin facts and history about various points of interest along our journey route.
Biking has to be one of the best ways to cross the Golden Gate Bridge... Loved it!
And the ferry ride back was a nice finish to the tour!
We had a beautiful day and our tour guide (I can't remember his name but he was awesome) was very knowledgable and informative about San Francisco.
My husband and I did this tour together. It was AMAZING and I would do it again in a heart beat. It was not an easy ride but well worth it.
Great trip, we had a great time and Robert was a great guide.
Great way to spend a day! Biking over San Fran bridge felt epic. Would totally recommend.
We had a great time. The equipment was good, our guide, Dylan, was great. He kept track of everyone, i think we had a group of 13-15. Of the 4 in my group, I was the only experienced bike rider. The riding was at a good pace for beginners, not too fast. There were hilly spots, but they were manageable for most. Riding over the Golden Gate was a great experience. Highly recommended.
The history,the beauty of the bay from the bridge,and the awesome scale of the bridge when viewed from below at fort point exceeded our expectations. The down hill ride from the bridge to Sausalito was awesome as was the restaurant recommendation from our tour leader. The fact that the weather was severe clear with no fog was a plus.
This trip was great for our family with kids aged 16, 13, 10. The few steep climbs were easily and quickly walkable. Lovely views and ferry was a nice way to return. Knowledgeable tour guide too!
I would recommend this to anyone. Bay City Cycles and Tour guide where great. Also great value.
Excellent tour, guide very knowledgeable and pace just right. Group a little on the large size but guide handled it well.
Tour guide was great! They accommodated everyone regardless of physical ability. No one was left behind.
Excellent guide.Interesting information knowledgeable. Safety conscious. Only negative was due to being so many other cycle groups that day and therefore had no time to spend in Sausilito because we needed to queue up for the ferry trip back to San Francisco.It would be good if there were more ferries put on at the busy times. Thoroughly recommend this tour a great way to see San Francisco.
Was a great experience, well organized. would recommend it to anyone.
Absolutely awesome! Well worth the money. Tour guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable about San Fran.
A good pace; friendly and knowledgable guide; felt well looked after! Up close and personal with seeing Centre of the Arts park, Fort Point (under GG bridge) and Sausalito in the sunshine!
We had a great time on this tour! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. There are a few hills on the course, but totally worth it.
The bike ride was fantastic - especially riding over the Golden Gate Bridge - although it was a little scary at times - with bike riders and people all trying to weave in and out of each other. Whilst the tour was great - and Sausalito absolutely beautiful - I thought our guide went a little too fast - and didn't really allow for as many photo ops as he could have. He said he had been on the desk for a while so maybe he was a little out of practice. Still a great tour though.
Super nice tour and guide. We were 6 friends out of a group of 10 people. We had time to take lots of photos over the bridge and on our way. As we could keep the bikes for 24 hours, some of us took a longer trip to Muir Beach (there are plenty of bike routes one can choose from - more adventurous or easy ones) and some of us explored Sausalito. It is totally worth to bike the Golden Gate Bridge.
