This is one of the best bike tours I've been on (and I've been on several in various cities around the world) thanks to our guide, Beebe!! What a character!.... She made the tour informative and exciting at the same time! We took the 7x7 tour, which basically toured the periphery of SF city. There were a couple of hills... More

I really enjoyed my 2 tours, the 7x7 with Beebe and the Classic with Vivek. Doing the two tours gave me a huge look at a lot of the city with just a small overlap at the beginning of each. The 7x7 was not hard for a regular cyclist of average fitness, plenty of breaks and a nice pace. Lunch... More

We had a fantastic experience with SOSF Bike Tours. Our tour guide, Josh, cycled us through many neighbourhoods pointing out landmarks and beautiful painted murals. The next day we rented bikes and cycled on our own, through the Golden Gate Park and Land's End. Our bikes were perfect and adjusted for us each morning. The staff were all exceedingly friendly...

My mom and I took the Heart of the City tour with Josh as our guide. Prior to the tour, we were nervous about biking the San Francisco hills, which looked like mountains compared to where we live. Once we arrived at SoSF, Josh and the entire team made us feel welcome. The tour bypassed hills (big thanks to The... More

What better way to be introduced to a new city than by a local and on a bike? SOSF bike tours run a friendly but efficient service. Our bikes were very well maintained and our guide, Vivek, was not only very knowledgeable but also passionate about the city he lived in. We were shown many different neighbourhoods in a day... More

Coming in along the horrifically congested streets of San Francisco by taxi, we wondered what we had let ourselves in for, having pre-booked a cycle tour for the next day. However, our fears were soon allayed when we met our turbo-charged enthusiastic guide Beebe, who quickly set our minds at ease. Before setting off she talked to us about safety... More

We recently rented 2, brand new, Specialized road bikes from the guys at SoSF. The bikes were perfect. We never dropped a gear. The guys also took the time to make sure our rentals were a good fit. They made adjustments and had us take a test ride before sending us on our way. They have several, great maps available,... More

The staff at SoSF Bike Tours are so friendly and accommodating, I could not recommend them highly enough. I did the Heart of the City tour with Bebe and felt safe and well paced throughout. I saw a side of the city I had yet to see, and also learnt a lot about the history of the city. The next... More

What a great day! We were lucky enough to get Bebe for the classic tour which gave us a great overview of different parts of the city including Golden Gate Park, the Castro, Haight-Asbury and the Mission. The bike pace was certainly manageable. Bebe gave us great bits of interesting information about each area and also provided a nice historical... More
