Desmond was a fantastic guide! He knew all the best spots for photos and his tour was very informative. Desmond was incredibly upbeat, funny and it felt like spending the morning with a genuine friend. He gave us lots of recommendations for where to get the best food and how to spend the rest of our day with the bikes after the tour ended. The tour groups are small (maximum 7) which makes it much more personal. The e-bikes themselves were in fantastic condition and are well worth the extra money. They make cycling the hills of San Francisco an absolute breeze so you can see lots more in one day than you would otherwise be able to. Would definitely recommend!!

The Original City Loop Electric Bike Tour of San Francisco was hands-down one of the best experiences we've ever had in SF. What a fabulous way to see the city! And owner/guide Dylan, while "not our savior" (take the tour and you'll get the joke) is a blast to ride the hills, the parks, and through some of the most iconic neighborhoods in the world with.

If you love SF (and we do!), and want to know her more intimately, or you're new to the city and you really want to have a truly memorable experience, this tour is the way to go.

P.S. While bike rentals are ubiquitous in SF (and every city in the US), I cannot imagine fumbling with a map on a rental bike could give you anywhere near the fun and adventure that this 4-hour tour with Dylan gave us. We couldn't have covered half the ground on our own, or have discovered so many of the special spots Dylan took us to.

The bikes were really nice, in good condition, and the shopkeeper helping us set up was very friendly. This was by far the best way to see all of San Francisco in an easy and fun way. I loved it so much, if we had time I would have rented them a second day to do it again.

Bring layers to bundle up (we were there in July), some areas by the water can be very windy/chilly.

This is an excellent tour for those wanting an intimate and up close tour of San Francisco. From Fisherman's Wharf , The Golden Gate Bridge , Haight Ashbury Distirct, to the "Pink Ladies ", you see many of San Francisco's eclectic and iconic sights as you ride along its streets in an e-bike. Our guide, Zach, along the tour gave recommendations on places to eat and less "touristy" places to see as well. This is a great street level tour that gives you the noise, smell, and vibe of a major city as you ride along with traffic on its bike lane like a local.

Beautiful weather, fun ride and informative tour guide. I had never rode an e-bike previously and Dylan made sure I was comfortable riding it prior to leaving his bike shop. That meant a lot to me and allowed me to have an excellent tour. Thanks Dylan! I highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see San Francisco have a fabulous time on an e-bike.

We had the best time on our electric bike tour! We had our tour a week before The city of SF shut down because of COVID-19. At one of the routine stops on a hill we by chance saw the cruise ship that had 40+ COVID carriers navigating into the bay. Aaron was the best tour guide ever and took frequent breaks. We started on time and ended early. Definitely worth the money, I can’t wait to go back to SF and take another tour with Dylan’a tours!😃

Hi lexi29757, Thanks for taking the time to write us a review, we really appreciate the positive feedback. Aaron is an awesome guide! Exploring San Francisco by electric bike is both refreshing and exhilarating. We appreciate that you found the tour "worth the money". Because of restrictions on capacity per tour, we were forced to raise our prices. We really appreciate you supporting our small business! Thanks, Dylan

My family and I took an electric bike tour through San Francisco. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, which highlighted a great deal of the history and interesting facts of the area. The tour took us through the Presidio, to the Golden Gate bridge, through Chinatown, through an area with expensive homes, etc. We then were allowed to keep our bikes for the balance of the afternoon to explore on our own, which allowed us to take our bikes over the Golden Gate, and to do some other exploring. All told, we had a really enjoyable experience with Dylan's Tours.

If you do nothing else while you are in S.F., do this e-bike Cook’s tour. The bikes are mega-fun, easy and safe, and our tour guide, Zach, was best in class. We covered a lot of territory, and it was a glorious way to spend the better part of a day. All of us gave it a “10”.

What a wonderful experience going on an Electric Bike Tour of San Francisco. What made this tour so special was Josh, our tour guide, he is a native of San Francisco and was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about San Francisco. He almost convinced a county girl to move to San Francisco.

If you want to smile, laugh and learn, take a tour with Dylan's. I am looking forward to returning to San Francisco and taking another tour with Dylan's.

Thank You for a great adventure Dylan's Tour Company & Josh.

This has to be the best way to see a huge number of SF best bits and highlights in one day. We had Aaron as our guide and he was very good - full of interesting stories and facts about this vibrant and diverse city. Aaron's anecdotes are not just tall stories (he is 6ft 9) but he actually corrects a number of popular misconceptions. The e-bikes are ridiculously easy. If you are short of time like we were, do this tour. By the way you get to walk the first part of the golden gate bridge, and I would suggest you probably get far more out of this tour than cycling the whole bridge?

Hi KevinD6096, Glad to hear you enjoyed touring SF with Aaron on our Original City Loop Electric Bike Tour! You're right, this tour is one of the best ways for visitors who are short on time to see a diverse selection of the city's most interesting neighborhoods and iconic landmarks. Thanks so much for taking the time to review us! We hope to see you on another tour soon, Dylan
