What an amazing ride! Our guide, Jeremiah, could not have done a better job. He was attentive to those toward the back of the pack, and very informative. He properly spaced our various stops and allowed us to take our time. Training before we left was thorough and safety-conscious. Make sure to rent an e-bike...it makes the ride so much more enjoyable and allows you to have lunch in Sausalito and ride back rather than take the ferry. We had no problem with battery life whatsoever. We rode from 10 AM-3:30 PM, and had tons of battery life remaining. We could have gone for several more hours. The bikes were in excellent condition. This was, by far, the highlight of our stay in SF!

Excellent way to see some of San Francisco’s beauty up close. We highly recommend. Our guide Benjamin (Ben or Bennie) did an excellent job to inform, entertain & make the tour feel personal. We ended up with a larger than normal group due to a lack of guides and Benji made us all feel like we were part of a small more intimate tour. We did this tour with our two 20 year old boys and we are all in agreement that it was awesome. We definitely recommend, but have to say Benjamin made the tour especially great. Thank you Benjamin from the Long Island Crew!!! We truly enjoyed the ride from San Fran to Sausalito. Big shout out as well to the whole crew at Blazing Saddles. Everyone was extremely friendly, welcoming and upbeat from the minute we walked through the door. Don’t hesitate If you are thinking of taking this bike tour and ask for Benjamin as your guide!

Jeremiah was an excellent tour guide! Helpful and supportive, guided us through the 9+ mile ride across the golden gate! He made sure no one was left behind, and even helped out some other bikers on the self guided tour whose bike broke down.

The customer service at the rental shop was also excellent. One of the employees moved his car to allow my friend to park just so we could catch up with the rest of the group even though we were late. The staff that helped outfit the bikes/helmets were very funny and helpful.

Wonderful staff and fun ride — highly recommend!

Overall a fun trip despite the cold, very windy weather. I would recommend to the Blazing Saddles bike company to separate tour groups into those with electric bikes and those without. It is difficult to enjoy the e bikes when several in the group have regular bikes causing everyone in the group to have to go very slowly.
The tour guide was very good but had no idea who was supposed to be in the group and 17 in a group was too many to move along effectively.
We did appreciate being about to leave the bikes with the van in Sausalito and take the ferry back. That was a very nice option.

Hello Laurie, We're so glad you had a fun trip, even though it sounds like you experienced some of famous San Francisco fog! We apologize that the electric bike tour was merged with the regular guided tour on the day you rode with us. The tours are usually separate, but occasionally they are merged. Please come visit us again and we'll ensure you have the (electric) bike ride of your life! Ask for me, Jeff!

For travelers of all ages, eager to test biking skills while experiencing a peak San Francisco adventure, we recommend this guided bike tour across the Golden Gate Bridge and into Sausalito. The electric option enhanced both our performance and enjoyment. Our guide, CJ, a native San Franciscan, shared his deep knowledge of the sites surrounding the bridge while attending constantly to safety-related matters.
The views from atop the span were spectacular!

We had an amazing time riding e-bikes with blazing saddles! From the moment we walked into the blazing saddle bike shop the entire staff was incredibly welcoming. They made us feel at ease and excited to start our day! Benjy was our guide for the day and all we can say is WOW. Benjy was the best tour guide we’ve had. Benjy was personable, kind, and so much fun! He took the time to make sure we were all
comfortable on our bikes and made us laugh throughout our entire ride. Benjy was extremely knowledgeable and provided us with so much information about all of the sites we visited. Benjy took the time to take pictures of us and our family at every stop. He also provided us with suggestions for restaurants and other places in SF to see during our vacation! I HIGHLY recommend blazing saddles and ask for Benjy! This bike tour really made our trip to SF one to remember.

This tour was awesome! I went with my 10 and 12 year old grandkids and it was definitely the highlight of our SF trip. Our guide Stevyn, could not have been any better! He was full of SF facts, warm, responsive, and patient. The kids and I have been quizzing one another about the info he gave on the trip and I am amazed at how attentive the kids were. He certainly held their attention. The bikes were great and all directions clear.

Benji was an amazing tour guide. He took care to find out what each of us in the group were interested in and tailored his tour to include facts and stories on those topics. He also made sure to orchestrate really great photo ops along the way for everyone. My son is 10, while the the rest of us on the tour were all adults - and Benji still kept us all engaged and interested.

The tour guide was wonderful. Here is what they don’t tell you. Bike insurance $5-$10 per bike if you want it, the ferry isn’t working so you have to ride your bike back or pay $15 per bike to have them transported back and you have to find a way back, we got an Uber. Parking at ghiradelli is $46. We didn’t know the ferry wasn’t running until we got there. There is also a $500 deposit they told us wouldn’t be run but they needed to have a credit card on file. That was completely wrong, money was charged the tour was yesterday and it’s still not back in my account. So over all the tour was great but be aware of all the extra fees.

We had a bucket list experience with Blazing Saddles!!! Our tour guide CJ was knowledgeable, professional, and very personable. Our experience was first class from the operations staff, quality bics, and the commitment to excellence. I will always use and recommend Blazing Saddles for my bicycle needs when I visit the San Francisco Bay Area. You will not be disappointed. What a quality group of people. A++++.
