I had a great time on the HOTC tour with Josh in March. He had great knowledge of the city, knew all the great murals, local eat spots, and was incredibly nice. SoSF knew their way around the crazy hills, and made sure the bikers were in the know on traffic rules, which is always helpful. I would definitely recommend this tour and can't wait to try their 7x7 tour!

This is by far the best bike trip I've ever done, and I can't say enough good things about this company. Firstly, they are based in the really cool Hayes Valley (and if you like good coffee, there is a great place for coffee down the road). Secondly, the guides know how to run a first-rate bike tour. They spent the first 5 minutes explaining safety and the itinerary. Thirdly, this is one not of those tours where you will find yourself with 20 other tourists. The size of the group is really small. Because they know how to do such a great tour, they can book out a bit in advance. Finally, Bebe (the tour guide we had) is awesome!

I went on the Classic Bike Tour which was very interesting and enjoyable. We had a small group, an entertaining and informative tour leader (Josh), great bikes and an excellent exploration of the neighborhoods of SF. The riding was not too hard and we stopped for lunch. Although I've been to SF several times, I learnt a lot more about the city. The also have bikes for rent. Josh sent us an email after the ride with recommendations for restaurants and things to do. I would definitely recommend this.

We had such a great time on the bike tour. My wife and I took the "The Classic" and found it too be not that difficult of a ride. I would make it your first stop when visiting the city. .We ended up learning so much about the city including cool spots. Our guide was a really nice guy too.

Well we had a ball, thanks Adam for sharing all your knowledge you clearly are very passionate which is such a wonderful thing to see. The tour it's self we felt showed us so many parts of San Francisco that we wouldn't have visited on our own. Today the Bay to Breakers race was on so there was a little bit of improvising but thats ok we still got everything we could have wanted from the tour and we got to see some crazy costumes because of the race. I was a bit hesitant with riding around as my knees are not the best however the Classic tour was very manageable and I am so glad I did it. If you are in San Francisco you must do this!!!!
