Judy was out tour guide for the bike tour and was hands down, amazing. We had my 4 year old and 1.5 year old with us and my youngest was not cooperating in the bugging and crying during our first stop. Judy was so kind and accommodating and I never felt like she was bothered by my son crying. As a mom who likes to take her kids on adventures I really appreciate hosts like Judy. It was a tough ride but so awesome! It is family friendly and I highly recommend. Thanks again for all your fun knowledge of the city, Judy!

Fantastic way to see the bridge. Eli was an outstanding guide..super knowledgable and a grade A photographer! Would do this again in a heartbeat. Beat thing we did in SF. Would recommend taking the ferry back from Sausalito and dropping off bikes there..super easy and no reason to pay more to drop off in town.

I booked this tour for my husband and dad. They both love to bike and both wanted to see Alcatraz.

Both of them loved each individual tour and had no complaints, but there were 2 things that could have made it perfect.

On the bike tour, there are no CLEAR instructions as to where to take the bike in Sausalito for the drop off. Its in a very obscure location. There is a very visible drop off for other companies, but not bay city. Riders should be given a map to make it much easier. My mom and I ended waiting on the guys for lunch while they drove around looking for the drop off.

On the Alcatraz tour...again....be clear that tourist need to get their tickets from the "combo bookings" line...rather than the "will -call" line. Not a big deal, but it makes it a little easier.

We had older people and teens in the group. The tour was good till the last 30 minutes when she became rather very impatient. Two people fell from the bikes close to the bay city rental on the return and she was nowhere to be seen. Otherwise the tour was great.

Hi there, Thank you for sharing your feedback. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your guided bike tour. We expect a lot from our guides because they are responsible for the safety of the group- we thoroughly train each guide in group management and safety. Our tours are designed to take two and a half to three hours, but if they take longer, our guides are required to remain with the group to ensure all riders finished the tour safely. Often our tour guide will have to ride ahead to make sure everyone is stopped at the closest intersection, or to ensure everyone is following behind him/her. We re-group at each crosswalk along the way so the group will stay together. We are surprised to hear your feedback about our tour guides, as you will see from the number of positive reviews, they are all highly rated. Thank you for this feedback, we will certainly discuss with our tour guide team and provide some retraining if necessary. I hope you will come back to try a tour again so we can show you the levels of service our customers have come to expect. Ashley

I honestly booked this trip because it was the only way to get an Alcatraz ticket. At the start of the bike tour, I was so happy I booked it. The check in was smoothless, our tour guide Rick was great. He took the time to ensure everyone was enjoying themselves and answered all the questions anyone had. I highly recommend this experience to anyone toying with the idea of booking it.

We were informed at extremely short notice that the company had made an administrative error and so we would be unable to go on the Alcatraz tour (the main reason we booked through this company).

We were forced to find an alternative company to take us on the Alcatraz trip and due to the late notice with which we were informed of Bay City Bikes’ error, we were forced to pay 3 times the original price in order to visit Alcatraz.

The Manager of Bay City Bikes refused to compensate us for our inconvenience, despite it being entirely the fault of his company.

As a result, we were left out of pocket by the company.

I’d strongly suggest using an alternative company for the Bike and Alcatraz tour, rather than deal with the unprofessional service like the one I experienced.

We are really sorry you experienced the issues you did with your Alcatraz and bike tour package . We are well known for our Alcatraz packages and it is extremely rare for us to experience problems such as this. As a National Park entity Alcatraz bears strident regulations we are required to follow. In situations where we experience issues with scheduling tickets, we are somewhat limited in our ability to remedy the problem. When there was an issue with your Alcatraz package we got in front of it, and immediately informed you. Knowing this, you elected to keep the bike tour portion of this package. We refunded the difference to you, and found you alternatives for booking. We exhausted all of our resources and tried to make the most out of a bad situation for you and your two friends. Im sorry if you feel that was not enough. Thanks, John

Opted for this combo package only due to Alcatraz availability. We biked to North Tower Golden Gate Parking & back, took a different route on the return trip. The ferry service from Sausalito to Fisherman's Wharf was shut due to Xmas. Hats off to Steve for his service!
