This tour was with Adam. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about the city. He cracked a few jokes and we enjoyed the tour. Positives: our first time using electric bikes, loved it! Also good choice in SF as we also got time after the tour to pop out to the bridge by ourselves and the electric came in very handy! The lunch stop was great; don’t think we would have found it by ourselves. History of SF was informative. Learned quite a bit whilst seeing various different areas of the city. Only feedback would have been to add a little more when just a small (just two of us) tour. Could have done more places in the same time as a bigger group tour. Ie a plan A and Plan B. Great day however, with the electric bike a great choice!

City tour with E Bike: Very informative, visited places that we would certainly not have seen, e.g. B. a food track area for lunch! Adam guided us through the city safely and professionally with a good sense of humor! I would definitely book this tour again! The e bikes were well maintained! The tour lasts 4 hours; the bike is still available for the rest of the day, so we still have to cross the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito and then take the ferry back! A perfect day in San Francisco!

We had a different tour than booked but it was still great. The appointment booking is a bit irritating, because you book the second day of the tour to Alcatraz, so to speak, and the bike tour then takes place here on the same day. We were lucky and were in town beforehand so we were able to adjust. A better description when booking the tour would be better.

Great bike tour around several different neighborhoods of San Francisco. Adam was an excellent tour guide. We enjoyed getting to know many parts and sights of San Francisco by riding the bike.

E-bike tour was fun. Adam was knowledgeable and showed us so many interesting places in the city. Definitely a must do.
