It was a fun, active way to see the Golden Gate Bridge and Sausalito. Reza was our guide. He did a great job of sharing history about the city that we would have never learned on our own. He was also conscientious about going at a speed that kept our group together yet wasn't too slow and stopping for a few breaks. Highly recommend.

Excellent trip ! Our driver and guide Archie was the best guide I ve ever had. Fully knowledgeable, entertaining and spoke at just the right pace to take it all in. Perfect and helpful even providing me with an umbrella when it was raining.

Adam was a fantastic tour guide , if not the best !! Super friendly, knowledgeable, and truly enjoys his job…5 stars my guy!!!

E-bike tour was fun. Adam was knowledgeable and showed us so many interesting places in the city. Definitely a must do.

Going to Muir is a must do. Driver was a bit mono tone but the content was great.
