Jim our tour guide was wonderful! Very knowledable throughout the bike ride, saw wonderful sites, a lot of amazing pictures were taken! A few large hills to bike up, and the line to catch the ferry back in Sausalito was very long! But overall Jim was great and we definitely recommend this bike tour!
One of the best experiences on our trip to San Francisco!
My older teens loved the biking trip across the Golden Gate bridge which included tours past the Ghirardelli chocolate factory, homes in posh SF, and the Arts Palace.
We had a great lunch in Sausalito after the tour. And lots of fun on the ferry trip back into SF.
This was a great way to experience San Francisco!
The tour was incredible! My husband and I did this tour on our honeymoon on July 1st. Our tour guide was awesome. He was informative and also took pictures for us and the other people on the tour. Riding across the Golden Gate Bridge will be a memory we will keep forever!
Fantastic four at fantastic value. Steven was a great guide. Can and #39;t believe we actually ride across the golden gate bridge. Such a great journey. Great workout for the athletic family. Three challenging hills that you can walk your bike up if needed but I recommnd powering through.
Guide was very helpful and accomodating. Fun and beautiful views.
Wow! This tour was amazing!! It was such an easy and breathtaking tour with an amazing and friendly guide who knew so much about all the attractions of the City. I loved ending in Sausalito and hearing all the fascinating stories along the way. Such a perfect day.
The trip only lasted 2.25 hours instead of the 3 hours, but it was still a great trip.
Great and fun experience. The views were amazing and it was so worth it!
Great way to see the Golden Gate Bridge upfront and an absulutely stunning view of San Francisco. Dinner in Sausalito was great as well. Be aware iif you are taking the ferry that at the end of the day the lines are long and will need to wait at least a half hour to board. Don and #39;t miss this op!
Fantastic experience. A couple of hills but overall a relaxed ride. Tour guide Jimmy was awesome had a true love for San Fran which was evident throughout the tour. Don't forget sun screen and bridge pedestrian traffic is high so it allows for a casual experience.
Really enjoyed our bike tour, lucky for us no-one else booked the same time, so we had a private tour, really enjoyed the lovely scenery along the way!
Great tour, thanks Jim our guide! Wonderful way to see Golden Gate Bridge
A challenged bike rider, I did walk the bike up the 2 hills the group waited I wasn and #39;t the only one to walk. Well worth it. Biked to Sausalito and road the Ferry back! As a couple we really enjoyed the day!
Great, fun, active way to see SF and experienced the Golden Gate Bridge!
The tour company was incredibly great. From cool cycles to an awesome guide, everything was perfect. But dealing with Viator, however, has been more than disappointing. Why can't you guys declare all the exclusions while booking the tour. For example, there were additional charges for:
a Bike insurance
b Ferry ticket for return journey
c Even something as small as rental for helmets
In short, your partners are great. But you guys, well, not very sure!
A great way to see and explore San Francisco. Robert who took us round was so knowledgeable and helpful- even with taking photos of us during the trip. Recommend coming back on the ferry.
Well worth having a guide to take you over the Golden Gate Bridge. He took you to all the places to get the best views. The trip was a three hour ride but it was set to every bodies pace most of it was on cycle paths. There were two hills but you could walk your bike up if you wished. The ride down the hill at the end into Sausalito was brilliant. A very enjoyable day with a ferry ride back with your bike at the end.
Out of my whole experience in San Francisco this was by far the best one! Jim our lovely guide was a cool guy who showed his true professionality when we 'lost' two people in our group of 7. He went out of his way to bike back, finding out later they had missed the coffee stop and were already waiting further along the road.
As I am a tour guide myself in Valencia, Spain Funtours Valencia I could only imagine how inconvenient this was for the rest of the group but he kept his smile and didn't make any of us feel uncomfortable about it. He was very informative and not at all telling us what we could have found out by reading a guide book.
The ride was just awesome because we had a beautiful sunny day, clear skies and great views from the Golden Gate. The ride down to Sausalito was awesome! A little steeper and therefor great to speed a little if you are experienced on a bike. You could go by your own pace anyways and the two small parts of climbing a hill were minor to me and your gears were sufficient for a steeper climb.
All in all I hoped for Jim to be our guide after all the great comments here and I was lucky to have him. The whole experience from A - Z was just perfect and even taking the ferry back was an extra to the tour. Though not included in the price the whole thing was worth every penny!
I would highly recommend this trip. The group was small 5 people and the tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. We stopped few times, on the way to Golden Gate and the tour guide talked us through few interesting facts about SF, Golden Gate and Alcatraz etc. There was plenty opportunities for photos, weather was great and you get to use the bike for full day if you wish.
Great. Just great! Unfamiliar with the city, I used my map and found my way. I was a bit out of sorts when I checked in. The young man was friendly and helpful. From the start, the experience was A 1. How lucky I was, I thought later, that I clicked on this tour--rather than any other--because it just got better and better! The guys were great. they set me up with a bike and adjusted it for my height. We met Steve our guide. He asked us where we were from and proceeded to field any questions. Once we got rollin,' we stopped at our first tour-stop 5 minutes in. I was having some difficulty. Steve explained to me how to shift gears and did not at all make me feel foolish for not knowing how to work a bicycle. We were off again. At our stops, he was enthusiastic about how cool the info was I appreciated it more than others. He knew his stuff, he welcomed questions, and happily offered to take photos for us along the way. I was at the back of the line, because I was all about soaking it in. Our guide even tailored his speed and info for our group. It was perfect weather for this Bike Across the Bridge and became the highlight of my whole trip to San Francisco trip. Here's why! The pinnacle of the whole experience was the unexpected pleasure of genuine and true interaction. Let's face it or you shall soon see San Francisco reeks of all things touristy. And the city gets no awards from me on cleanliness. it was so refreshing to stumble upon an experience with helpful genuine people who are sincere in such a way that you feel as though you matter--on a human level. Oh wait! The Absolute Pinnacle was looking straight up from tower 1 in the heart of Our Golden Gate Bridge. But a real close 2nd was being presented this magnificent sight courtesy of truly surprising people. Wow! I recommend that you click on this one! And I will add that if you receive great joy, tipping is a great way to keep positive energy alive and flowing! Everyone wins! I know I won!
Well, it rained for part of the trip but we made the most of it! And still were able to get some really good pics! Our tour guide, Mike, was very knowledgeable about the history of San Fran and the Golden Gate Bridge he was super laid back and a lot of fun! In the end, we had a private tour because everyone else cancelled so it was our lucky day even though it rained!
Very informative guide, stopping off at numerous interesting places and photo opportunities. Actually cycling the bridge did not disappoint. Unfortunately we were not able to spend time in Sausolito due to our travel arrangements
The tour truly was spectular and Michael was a fantastic guide. My sons and I highly recommend it.
