Desmond was our tour guide for the electric bike tour and he was AMAZING. My husband and I could not rave enough about him to our friends and family. His guided tour was so animated, funny, and very personal. We got to talk with some residents of the city outside of Presidio Park and Desmond stopped to show us many different houses and landmarks. The ride itself was pretty easy with the electric bikes, definitely would recommend using an electric bike versus a manual bike to ride around San Francisco! If you have the option to take a tour with Desmond as your guide I would absolutely tell you to take one without hesitation! It was also very nice that we got to keep our bikes after the tour until 6pm. My husband and I actually retraced the path we originally took since Carl the fog was previously in the bay during our tour. 10/10 recommend Dylan’s Tours and Desmond the tour guide.

This tour is totally worth the money, and, if you book with Dylan, you are getting a small local business, not a big national company. The tour was comprehensive and informative—and, most importantly, fun! Patrick was a great guide with lots of local knowledge, appropriately cheesy jokes, and a penchant for Name that Tune featuring songs recorded at the Record Plant in Sausalito. We earned lots of Ghirardelli chocolates (which, we now know, are no longer made in San Francisco!) for guessing the tunes and other trivia. We also got fantastic pictures because Patrick knew just where to stop and how to frame a great shot. We did the city tour, Muir Woods, and Alcatraz, and it was a great day. All in all, a great introduction to the city—highly recommend!

We are so glad we chose Dylan’s Tours to show us around San Francisco. Our guide Rolando was fantastic, friendly, informative, flexible, fun!!! We chose to do a private tour with our group of 18 people ages 6-69. The 25 passenger bus was perfect space for us. We loved not having to drive and park ourselves all over the city and we loved how much we got to see. Rolando was also super flexible when we told him we just had to put our feet in the ocean. Everyone of us had a great time and enjoyed this tour immensely.

This was a great tour! I felt like we saw so many of the area’s top attractions in one day. Our tour guide Sully was great. I loved all the information he gave and the stories he told us about every area of the city. He kept things on schedule very efficiently and drove very safely. I feel like I learned so much about San Francisco and all it’s various neighborhoods.

Muir Woods was our favorite part of the day. I know for a fact we would not have made it out that way on our own, so I definitely appreciated having that as part of the tour. It is just so beautiful up there. Peaceful and serene and the air is so crisp and clean. Loved getting to see that.

All in all I would definitely recommend Dylan’s tours. We had a great time!

My family (2 adults and 2 teens) loved this tour. It was hands down our favorite activity in the city. Great guide, great power assist bikes (Rad Power Bikes), and good weather made for great views of the city, the bay, and the Golden Gate Bridge.

We scheduled a half-day private tour (due to COVID) and had a great time. Dylan drove us around through all the major neighborhoods in San Francisco while relating entertaining and interesting stories. He customized to our various interests, from seeing the Painted Ladies (Full House tie-in) to street art and murals to Fort Point and the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a great time spend and highly recommended. Excellent value!

Our family group of twelve — ages 9 to 78 — enjoyed a Private Tour of SF with stops — for close-up looks at the Palace if the Fine Arts, Golden Gate Bridge, “Painted Ladies,” etc, followed by a trip to Muir Woods — lunch at concession stand in Muir Woods. Fantastic driver and guide. This was everyone’s favorite day from our 4 day stay in SF.

We rented Ebikes for a half-day and it was so much fun! The E-bikes are a great way to get around the city without all the hard work of biking up the big hills. When we arrived we were greeted by Aaron who was super helpful and gave us a whole lesson on how to use the bikes, he also showed us where to go to make the trip most enjoyable. We rode from their shop along the water, on the Golden Gate Bridge, then to Salosito and took the ferry home. What a great experience! And best of all we did it in under 4-hrs.

Thank you for your splendid review on our E-Bikes. We also feel great knowing that you receive a whole lesson on how to use the bikes from Aaron and had fun biking up the hills. Aaron is fully knowledgeable with all the necessities in the tour. We assure that he will also know about this positive remark. We look forward to you joining us again on your next visit. Thanks, Philip

I took Dylan’s “Famous Tour,” an informative, fun spin through San Francisco’s highlights — from Twin Peaks to the Presidio. From the city we crossed the Golden Gate Bridge and lunched in Sausalito before visiting Muir Woods. Patrick was our tour guide and made the day so much fun. Not only did we learn a lot of fun facts about San Francisco, we also learned about the city’s musical history — and won chocolate as prizes for answering trivia questions!

I highly recommend this company and tour — it’s a great value — and hope you’re lucky enough to get Patrick as your guide.

My husband, 2 teenage boys and I took part in the Famous Tour today with Young Dylan. Dylan was enthusiastic and engaging, and we enjoyed his eclectic musical taste. We appreciated all the sights, especially the stop-offs at the Palace of Fine Arts, Fort Point for the Golden Bridge, Muir Woods (where we were given 1.5 hours to walk the trails) and Sausalito.
Highly recommended
