I don’t usually like yours or group activities but this was great. Eli was the best tour guide and stopped to tell us fascinating bits of history along the way. I took my 2 kids and while we didn’t go as fast as they would like, they really enjoyed seeing the city on a bike - and crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, which was on their teenage bucket list. We didn’t go to Sausalito because it was Thanksgiving and I didn’t think anything was open. But we had a fun solo ride back. Such a great way to explore Chrissy Field, the Marina District and learn about San Francisco’s military history.

Our minibus tour was very informative and covered many of the famous landmarks in the Bay area. Would definitely recommend to others and will likely take another tour with Dylan's myself in the future.

Learned a lot about the Bay Area. The tour guide was very helpful and patient in letting us explore and take pictures whenever we stopped. The scenery was beautiful and it wasn’t a strenuous bike ride.

Such a great tour, Judy was absolutely wonderful and we couldn’t have enjoyed our time more.

Jake was fun and informative. It was a great tour. Thank you
