Ebikes are the only way to go in SF , esp if you ride over the bridge to Saucalito. The hills are brutal otherwise. It’s great you can put the bikes on the ferry back. Lots of bike tracks which is good. The locals are pretty serious risers. Make sure you stay on the right hand side - or you will incur their wrath!

The tour was nice althought the guide didn´t speak german, and the conversation was in english. We had a trip with his private and comfortable car, we can recommend it.

Very good quality bikes with batteries that lasted all day despite the +40km done in San Francisco. Very professional and pleasant service. Everything was perfect.

Uncomplicated on site. Great tour of the Golden GB and Sausolito is worth seeing.

Hassle free collection of the bikes, nice guys. Bikes are ok.
