Overall rating

4.8 / 5

based on 9 reviews

We were visiting from Chicago and took the tour on Christmas Day. It was an amazing way to experience San Francisco. The route has a mix of riding and stops to learn about the city’s history and geography. There are some hills as you might expect so be prepared to work a little. Our only disappointment (not the company’s fault) was that the ferry from Sausalito was closed for the holiday so we cut the trip short since nothing was open in town. The guide let us know in advance so we were able to adjust our ride.

Our tour guide Mark was very friendly and knowledgeable. He incorporated story telling throughout the tour about the history of the city and sites as well as current facts. The route was a little challenging (mix of riding on the trail and road next to cards). It's work getting an e-bike, there are a lot of hills. Overall, the route and stops were fun and enjoyable. Sausalito was also a great was to end the trip. Lots of restaurants and great views.

Beautiful scenery biking to Sausalito. Would recommend getting the E bike to allow biking back across the Golden Gate Bridge to explore goals in great Park.

Muir Woods is absolutely breath-taking! The bus ride was comfortable and you have plenty of time to check out the different places you stop at.

Our tour guide Danillo was fantastic and Muir Woods was stunning.
