I was recommended this tour and it sure lived up to expectation. Informative, fun and a great way to explore areas you might not get to! Bibi is a gregarious and professional tour guide. Not having ridden a bike for a while I was concerned I was not going to make it but Bibi made sure there were enough breaks... More

My husband booked us on the "Classic Tour" on our first full day in San Francisco and it was such a blast! I wasn't sure what to expect but I absolutely loved the areas we were able to visit on this tour! Adam was our guide and he was great - he explained "The Wiggle" and gave us tons of... More

We had the pleasure of having Josh (the owner) as our guide on Monday, July 14th, our first day in San Francisco. We did the Heart of the City tour as we didn't want to over exert ourselves (both husband and I are 60 and 61 years young). The cycling tour was as expected 3.5 hours long and at all... More

Took the wife and three sons to this tour. At first worried I had gotten myself onto a tourist trap... Far from it. Bibi, our tour guide made it a great and informative tour for all. This is a great tour if you have people in your group with so-so bicycle skills, but also works if all you want is... More

We decided to do the By Roller Tour. It was a total blast! We had Adam as our tour guide and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Never once did I feel as though the tour was too hard. Hills were not an issue either. This tour was great to see all of the city. We had lunch at the ferry building and... More

So glad we chose SOSF bike tours for our first morning in San Francisco. We choose the "Heart of the City Tour," and it gave us a great overview of the many communities we could visit later in our stay. BeBe was a great tour guide. I have been on bike tours in several other destinations (including NYC), and this... More

Susan, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for us. We feel honored to be on the top of your bike tour list. It really is such a fantastic way to get introduced to a city however we are very biased :) You are correct in that it is impossible to avoid all the hills... More

I've been on bike tours in quite a few cities and really enjoyed SoSF. We saw a lot in our 5-hour tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and very enjoyable. It was a great way to get a feel for the city and Josh (guide) followed up with an e-mail including a huge list of restaurants and things to check out.... More

Great tour to get a local's overview on the different neighbourhoods of San Francisco that you wouldn't necessarily see as a tourist here for a few days. The tour takes you to a lot of places that buses are not permitted to go and it really is a fantastic way to explore the city. The Classic tour includes a lunch... More

I was dubious about a bike ride in SF, not being a huge rider, just do it for fun but this was amazing. Best tour guide - genuine, informative, interested, fun. The tour goes to "places of interest" as opposed to full on touristy areas. For me this is a must on a visit to SF!

Nic, So glad you took the time to write a review. SF can be a daunting thought (hills!) for those that have not experienced the ease and joy of riding with us in the city. Hopefully you caught the biking addiction and now ride back home! Thank you again for your feedback. All the best, Daniel More
