We had a great time on this tour! This was the second time we took the tour and the one thing we found out that many of the participants just weren't familiar with biking, the biking rules of the road and panicked while biking in congested conditions of the Golden Gate Bridge or in the center of action on Fisherman's...

Electric bikes are the way.to go. Not because my wife and I are fat and lazy but because we wanted to enjoy the experience and not be worn out at the end! This is small business owned and operated by some friends. They really care about your experience. Carlos was a great guide!

Absolutely the best, most fun way to experience the Golden Gate Bridge & Sausalito! On the steep hills, you cruise past those huffing & puffing and will go just about as fast as the "spandex riders" who may call you a "cheater". Never mind them, you will still get a work-out as you pedal along. We did that and had... More

The bike: an electric bike doesn't absolve you of all effort, rather it frees you to pay more attention to your surroundings rather than huffing and puffing up the hills, or concentrating on not falling. It's much heavier than a regular bike, so when you're pedaling you may feel like a wimp. The tradeoff is that you can zoom up... More

After cruising past all the people struggling to peddle up the hills I am so happy we went the electric bike option! I was a little scared as it has been years since I've jumped on a bike (and I'm really not the most coordinated thing on 2 wheels) and the extra weight of the bike makes it a bit... More

Great way to spend the day! Highly recommend! Johannes was an awesome host & tour guide, and kept us moving along. The electric bikes allow you to pedal to your thighs' content, or you can use the power to assist your ascent up the steep hills. Returning the bikes can be a bit hair-raising as the Wharf is crowded, but... More

This was a very enjoyable trip and the electric bikes are a great positive as the scenery rather than the peddling won out. We were a party of 5 and I booked 4 tickets through Goldstar for a significant discount with the final ticket booked through the tour company - also did this for the Segway trip with the same...

Johannes was an excellent, friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating, fun, approachable guide. The tour took us a surprising distance, and we got to see a lot more than I thought could fit into 3.5 hours. This has to be the best way to see the city, and will take you to a lot of things you would otherwise miss. The electric bikes... More

This tour proved to be most enjoyable. Riding across the Golden Gate Bridge is simply quite special. Electric bikes make it an easy journey with vey little personal exertion required. Selfie with Yoda was a personal highlight. Johannes was an entertaining, informative and courteous guide. We stayed in Sausalito for a relaxing lunch before the ferry ride back. Just do... More

This is a brilliant tour and so glad we found it and plucked up the courage to take part in it. As we are from England and approaching our 70's we were very worried we would not cope with the traffic and relevant highway rules but our guide was helpful and re-assuring and we were soon on our way.
