Easy to drive and understand the roads! So many stop signs though lol 2 hours is enough time but depends what you want to see

The agency is cool like San Francisco. The route is well studied and the GPS reassures. For us a nice getaway of 2 hours.

Excellent way to see the city - even in a national holiday, 4th of July, we were able to get around with ease!

I enjoyed my trip in San Fran in the cars, this is a great way to see the sights on your own

It was amazing but the bike or scooter was too loud.
