Great experience. There are restrooms and a bar with snacks on board. It was a nice relaxing and educational tour to see the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz island. Everyone was friendly. I would recommend 100%!!
Ride off the beaten path through many of San Francisco’s iconic parks like the Presidio and Crissy Field on the way to the Golden Gate Bridge and back. Snap some amazing photos along the Pacific Ocean and see the Golden Gate Bridge up close from above and below. You can even park and take a stroll along the span of the bridge if you choose. On the way back, explore the boutique shopping districts of Chestnut and Union Street. Finish your tour where tour buses can’t go winding your way up Russian Hill to take an exhilarating ride down the Crooked Street (Lombard St). This tour is approximately two hours drive time at a slow pace and has several fun, informative detours and stop options along the way.
The scooter gps tour was so much fun, I would definitely recommend doing it. They were very easy to drive and very informative.

On this exclusive ride you’ll follow a coastal route that takes you by the famous piers of San Francisco, by Crissy Field, and past Fort Point to the breathtaking Golden Gate Bridge. See the city at sunset, and stop for photos when you like. Ride across the Golden Gate Bridge on the west/ocean side, which opens at 3:00 PM strictly for cyclists.
Reid was an excellent guide who also entertained us with opera songs as he cycled. Would highly recommend him

The cruise started at 11am. We traveled west along the shore line and the narrator described all the pertinent landmarks including the Presidio, the forts and the Palace of Fine Arts. We passed the Golden Gate Bridge and the view was amazing. On the way back we saw Sausalito, Angel Island, Alcatraz and more of the San Francisco cityscape. This cruise should be a requirement for any first time visitor.
Great experience with mobile ticket and ride on the boat. Mask enforced for safety was highly appreciated. Narration was very clear and views were amazing! Great 1 hour trip for the cost!
