Really enjoyed and tour guide good crack. Only thing was we came back from Sausalito alone and were not instructed how to navigate our way back to the return point. Found cycle lanes confusing and would have liked a little guidance. Didn’t spoil our day though.

The guides did a superb job preparing the riders for each phase of the trip. Daniel, our guide, was personable, easy going, and knowledgeable. All members of Blazing Saddles from check in to check out were friendly, courteous, enthusiastic, and helpful. I would definitely recommend this adventure.

Tour guide on the bike ride was very good. Informative. He did say the ride to Tiburon was only 45 minutes and essentially one road to follow. That was not really the case. It took us a lot longer and it would have been helpful if he had pointed out which roads to keep an eye out for once we went off of the 8 bike trail. Other than that it was amazing! Highly recommend doing this while in San Francisco.

A must do. Best way to see San Fransisco on bike however I recommend the electric bike option as while I'm a reasonably fit 40 something its very hilly and this extra push going up hills made it for me. We took the option of the ferry back which goes round Alcatraz and saved us a half day visit as we got really close photos. Tour guide was lovely and handled all ages however it may have been even better with a smaller group.
