Reviewed 18 March 2012

We decided to go on this tour since it was different from just biking across the bridge and would provide history, sights off the beaten path and take us to some places we especially wanted to see and find out about. The size is kept small, large hills are avoided, it showed us things we would never have discovered on our own and provided some historical facts that really made it interesting. The tour guides are great and very friendly-we would definitely recommend it to others!!

“Cool Tour”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

My wife and I were celebrating our 30th anniversary in San Francisco, and we really like bike tours. Our hotel was in the Wharf area, but the last thing we wanted to do was a tour in the Wharf area. We're very familiar with that area, and the thought of biking through the crowds past Bush Man, Silver Man and Gold Man just didn't appeal to us. Also, Biking the Bridge didn't spark any interest with us either. We've walked the bridge, been to Sausalito, etc.
What we were looking for was a "road less travelled" and the Streets of San Francisco tour looked like it fit the bill perfectly! At first it looked like we might be out of luck. The day we had set aside for the trip was totally booked. But Daniel, the co-owner stayed in contact with my wife, and lo and behold two slots opened up! Great tour, through the Panhandle, Golden Gate Park, Haight District, Mission District and the Castro District. We really enjoyed the sights, sounds, and history of these various areas. I can't imagine any casual biker or anyone interested in history/culture being disappointed in this tour.
We highly recommend!

“Well-worth your time and money”
Reviewed 15 March 2012

Let me start off by saying that Daniel was an excellent tour guide. There's a reason why SoSF has only 5-star reviews.

Dan took us on a fascinating, fun and relaxing tour of San Francisco. The best part was he showed us all of the bits that he was personally attached to, which made it a special experience. We saw bits of SF that many locals probably know nothing about.

The cycling was very relaxing and not fast-paced at all. Great for cyclists and non-cyclists alike. The bikes were very well maintained and ran smoothly. All the gears were nicely calibrated and the seats were comfortable.

Lastly, Dan gave us some great restaurant recommendations, which we made use of throughout the rest of our stay in SF.

Overall, I would highly recommend this tour to Americans and international tourists alike.

“No. 1 for a reason- fantastic tour”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

This tour is great, you get to see the best of SFO. Daniel is a great guide, the bikes are well maintained and the heart of the city route was well thought out (easy ride in a hilly city). This is a great outfit, they deserve a great deal of success. This should be top of anyones list of things to do when visiting San Fran.
