We were a group of 11 on the Golden Gate Bridge bike tour and all were impressed by the well organized and professional service provided. The bikes were ready as planned and in great condition. Our tour guide, whose name I cannot remember, was patient, careful and informative. We had a wonderful experience throughout the entire ride with Bay City.... More

Great deal on bike rentals...right now book online and get 25% off your rental. The staff is a hoot and the bikes are good. Get ready to feel the burn as you bike over the bridge, but do it; it's a great experience.

We were lucky to get Adam as our tour guide when we went to Bay City tours, not only was he very friendly, but he also kept us amused whilst giving a great tour of San Francisco. The weather was unfortunately very foggy on the day we went to ride over the Golden Gate bridge, but he kept us in... More

Bay City Bike Rentals and Tours made it easy and convenient to rent a bike to for a self-guided tour of Golden Gate Park. Located only two blocks from the park, the shop is perfect for enjoying a full day on the park or just a quick rental and bike ride to the awesome Science Museum in the park. The... More

Robert was our tour guide and he was very knowledgeable and such a neat guy. You don't have to be super fit to do this tour. To bike over the Golden Gate bridge is unbelievable. We are pleased we had a guide, because we got some history on the way, where as if you just hire the bikes and self... More

I did this tour with my parents (average 60 yrs old ) and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. My mum is saying it is one of her favourite tours that we did on our US holiday of 4 weeks. Our guide Robert was really informative and I learnt a tonne about San Francisco. There is something quite neat to say... More

Staff was friendly and helpful. Bikes were well maintained and with local maps already attached to handle bars. After getting fitted for helmets and proper sized bikes we received an excellent briefing on where to ride, what areas to avoid, and things we for sure didn't want to miss. Rode bikes to Golden Gate Bridge and back. Some people ride... More

Our Bay City bike rental was the highlight of an already-great trip. The shop was a breeze to find in always-interesting Haight-Ashbury; the rental process took only a handful of minutes; prices were crazy-reasonable with a $19-a-day Groupon deal; and the bikes were sturdy and well-maintained. The route Bay City recommends (clearly marked on the maps provided on the bike's... More
