Wow! SO MUCH FUN! We had an awesome time. Nick our guide was very knowledgeable and allowed us to take our time with taking pictures and video at the various stops along the ride. The electric bikes were awesome. We were envied by those huffing and puffing up the hills on other rented bicycles and you could almost see it in their faces - "we should have gotten those bikes". My fiance opted to do more peddling to be healthy, but I preferred to just turn the throttle effortlessly and motor along while taking in the amazing scenery. After an eight mile ride over the Golden Gate Bridge and down into Sausalito, you get a smooth and relaxing ferry ride by Alcatraz and back to Fisherman's Wharf. It really is a great day to spend in San Francisco a lot to talk about and incredible photo opportunities.
