We had the good idea to book this bike ride through the city streets for our first day at SFO. We were thus able to familiarize ourselves more quickly with the geography and with the various aspects of the city which was very useful for the rest of our stay. Our guide Adam was keen to show us his attachment and his passion for his profession and his city. We had some minor problems with our bikes, but the electric assistance is good and very useful in the steep streets of SFO. A good introduction to the city. We recommend this walk to start your stay.

Very nice bike tour and Alcatraz was too.

The house number of the meeting point for the e-bike tour was not correct. So we came under time pressure. But we reached the guide by phone, who gave us the right address. Well-run tour, but you have to think of the icy wind in SF. Dress warmly!!!! Alcatraz was also great.
