We rented electric bikes and rode through Golden Gate Park, up to Golden Gate Bridge. Beautiful scenery. Easy to rent and return. This company is all over the place, so pick the area you want to ride in and find a rental booth.

Easy to find, with well maintained bikes for use. Instructions are straight forward and navigating the routes are also easy. I recommend starting the Tiburon ride before 11am so you will arrive for a well earned lunch in Sausalito, then burn the rest off while...More

Enjoyable ride across the bridge to Sausalito. Our guide was a native of San Francisco and was well informed about interesting points about the bay, the military history, the Palace of Fine Arts, and the Golden Gate Bridge.

Started off as an amazing experience, even up until we handed the bikes back. The drama started a few days later. At the time of signing in they asked for a credit card as a guarantee, in case we didn’t return the bikes, being that...More

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds
for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North
Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
