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.

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 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.
