Traveler Tips

There were a couple of small uphills, but time was allocated for those who preferred to get off and walk uphill
I was shaking by the time we got across the bridge but it was worth it because the views were spectacular.

Amazing Experience
Wildaliz_H, May 2022
This was the best experience of my San Francisco trip! Judy was our bike tour guide and really made it memorable. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and patient with everyone as we had both beginner and advanced bicyclists in our group. The tour itself was amazing- cycling though San Francisco, across the Golden Gate Bridge and on to Sausalito, which was beautiful! I can’t wait to do this again!
A memorable day for our family
John_C, May 2022
This was a memorable day for our family!! Such an enjoyable bike tour! Our tour guide Blake was so great! Friendly and knowledgeable about San Francisco history. Made short stops along the way to rest and share more area history. Took us to so many beautiful locations. Yes, i used a “pedal-assist” electric bike (first time) - super easy to operate and navigate the slightly hilly tour. I’m 62 years old and no problem keeping up with group. Thanks Blake for a great day! John & Jennifer Church and Katie

Hi there Thanks for describing your ride :) Hope it was a blast!
Great ride from San Fran...
Andrew_H, Mar 2022
Great ride from San Fran to Sausalito. Blake was an excellent guide, had interesting stories and facts about the city to share and did so with personality. The ride itself was a little more challenging than anticipated (we used regular bikes) but we rode at an easy pace and Blake made sure not to rush anyone and wait for the last riders before starting to speak. Lucked out with some clear skies although the wind was still pretty strong throughout. Definitely recommend bringing layers. Sausalito was amazing to ride into and the timing was great…we got there with enough time for a quick lunch and walk of the shoreline before grabbing the ferry to head back to SF. This was a great experience and wonderful way to learn about SF.
Great ride with amazing views
Brandi_D, Mar 2022
Blake was our guide. He was very knowledgeable and attentive to make sure we were able to have breaks when needed. It was a great tour and I would recommend it. It was very strenuous with some of the hills but well worth it.

Blake was great. We got to see lots of cool stuff and he adapted to our weird schedule. Super interesting part of SF with plenty to see and learn about. Ebikes are the bomb.

Thansk Zach! I will be sure to share this with Blake, so happy you loved the bike tour & the E-bikes! ~Susan
Great tour guide - CRAPPY bikes
David_G, Nov 2021
The tour and the tour guide itself are great. Bikes were terrible. My 3rd time renting electric bikes with other tours companies and this one is far the most disappointing. We had the bikes till 7pm but by 3 pm the bikes were already almost out of battery life. The bikes normal gears didn’t work at all on one of our bikes. Going up hills you had to do most of the work because the bike couldn’t get up the hill without you doing most of the peddling. Would pass on this tour. Only gave it a 3 star because of the guide. She’s was awesome.
Great experience
Nilka_R, Oct 2021

Take the ride but go electric.
CARLA_S, Oct 2021
Eli was great tour guide. Electric bikes are way to go. Beautiful ride over Golden Gate Bridge into Sausalito. Had lunch and spent afternoon there before taking ferry back to SF. Would highly recommend.

You’re better off walking San Francisco
Lauren_K, Sep 2021
Not a beginners tour as they claim. You need to be in shape and experienced to get through. Faulty helmets (even tour guide even acknowledged poor quality), passive aggressive tour guide, unsafe bikes with slippery pedals. Proceeded to bike in the rain when it wasn’t safe. Best part of the tour was dropping off my bike in Sausalito for an additional cost. Avoid tour.

Best Way To See the Golden Gate Bridge
Roger_F, Sep 2021
This is a great tour and Adam, our guide, is the one who helped make it so great! Adam is so knowledgeable and shares details about San Francisco along with his passion for the city. We take bike tours in every new city we visit and it's a perfect way to acquaint yourself with your surroundings. When you book a tour with Bay City Bikes make sure you request Adam as your Tour Guide!!!
A great experience!

Great tour
Kenneth_P, Sep 2021
The bike ride was terrific. Crossing the Golden Gate was amazing and we loved biking down to Sausalito. The tour ends there but we decided to have lunch and then bike back. The electric assist bikes made it easy. Great tour.
Somewhat disappointing
Mark_C, Sep 2021
Riding a bike through a section of San Francisco and across the Golden Gate Bridge was certainly scenic and enjoyable but this tour was somewhat disappointing. The equipment wasn't great; my bike had to be replaced a mile in because the gears weren't working properly and another member of the group's bike also broke down. The tour took much longer than it needed to; we stopped at least four times in the nine-mile trip and we lingered too long at those stops, one of them being more than 20 minutes, and members of the group were getting restless. Then, we lost half the group on the Golden Gate Bridge when they got stopped by bridge workers due to some issue that arose, but we didn't know it until the rest of the group had crossed the bridge. That was bad and just shouldn't have happened; there should have been two tour guides, one in front and one in the back.

Bike ride across Golden Gate bridge

View of the Golden Gate bridge from the north side. Interesting commentary about Crissy Airfield and buildings from the San Francisco Exposition.

Fitness oriented fun!
Richard_L, Aug 2021
We took 7 toura - walking, bus, etc. - but hands down the best was this bike tour. Judy, a SF native, did a great job. It was nice to get some exercise in and learn some local history. Outstanding!
Thumbs Up
Carla_H, Aug 2021
Such a great tour. We rented the electric bikes which made it very easy to ride back on our own instead of taking the ferry. Our tour Eli was excellent and full of knowledge about the history of San Francisco.
