Lisa_N, Jun 2022
Loved the tour, but crossing the bridge can be slightly dangerous with the winds, and the professional bikers. Our guide Charlie, was awesome!
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Hey Lisa, so happy you had fun with Charlie on your guided tour! Those spandex-clad bikers just love zooming over the bridge, but I'm glad you did not let that deter you!

Our guide took us on a different route so we could avoid the cold wind. It was really nice and we got to see a couple of amazing places. Very happy with that 😊

Sharon_S, Mar 2022
CJ was a great guide, upbeat and informative, he had interesting things to tell us at the different stops and his love for San Francisco really showed through . Highly recommend. He was very patient with this first time ebiker.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Sharon, thanks for the great comments about CJ! We love having him on our team almost as much as he loves talking about San Francisco. We also hope you are now an e-bike fan - we love them.
Not a fan! Book a differ tour
dorshawilson91, Feb 2022
Tour guide was a little obnoxious and kept leaving the group. I understand people didn’t want to rent e bikes but the tour guide didn’t care and left us behind. I wasn’t a fan of the tour. The scenery was beautiful but once we got to Sausalito the tour guide dropped us off at last stop and didn’t say anything else. He left on his bike and didn’t advise us the time of the ferry departures. Overall I wouldn’t recommend this tour. And for 100.00 it definitely wasn’t worth it. It felt rushed and not well put together.
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Hello, I am so sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your tour. I would like to speak with you about this, as your experience on the tour is not what we strive to deliver. I would love it if you could call into the shop and ask for a manager to discuss this. I apologize for your experience.
Really Recommend. Love it!
Nancy_G, Feb 2022
I loved this tour so much. My fiancé and I truly enjoyed, especially with our tour guide CJ. He was very informative, cool and gave us some great places to check out to eat. We were able to experience San Francisco in a whole different way and was able to see a lot of San Francisco with e-bikes. Really recommend an e-bike, will make your trip so much easier. Thank you.
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Nancy, so glad you had fun on your tour with CJ! The e-bikes are definitely the way to go. We love riding them as well. Glad you had a real "San Francisco experience"!

Kara, so glad you had a great tour with CJ! Happy that we were able to special order gorgeous weather for you.
Great service from the Blazing Saddles team - best way to see the sites in and around the Bay Area!
Tim_D, Sep 2021
Great friendly service at the bike shop - trip over the Golden Gate to Sausalito to Mill woods Park to Tiburon and ferry ride back to Fisherman's Warf was spectacular!
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Hi Tim, you sure hit all the great spots on your ride! Glad you enjoyed your visit and our staff, come see us again!
Annoying guide
Frances_M, Sep 2021
Guide was super annoying. A combination of snarky and not funny. The five people on our tour agreed on one thing- never take another ride with Banji. Saulsalito was beautifu and we elected to dump the annoying guide.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Hey Philly Girl, I'm so sorry to hear you were disappointed in your tour with Benji. I'm surprised to hear this as you can tell from our other reviews that our guided tours are usually the highlight of our guests' visit to San Francisco. I have addressed this and would love to have you come back and visit us again so we can make up for this experience. ~Jeff
Loved Muir Woods Forest
Leonard_L, Sep 2021
Highly recommend this tour! Loved our visit to the Muir Woods. Our guide was very friendly and I liked his music references. Going to Alcatraz was on my husband’s bucket list so it was a perfect end.
Awesome experience
Calvin_T, Aug 2021
Our guide was very personable and very informative the whole trip. He led us at comfortable pace, and stopped at the most picturesque places for photos.
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Hey Cal, So happy to hear you enjoyed your guided tour! Our tour guides are all locals who love sharing the history and beauty of our city with visitors. Glad you got some good bragging rights photos!
An absolute must do experience
Folkert_R, Aug 2021
An absolute must do experience. Don’t forget to take your ultimate Golden Gate Bridge picture. I would advise to use the E-bike ;-)
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Hey Folkert, We agree that the electric bikes are the way to go! Glad you found all the perfect spots along the way for photos. I bet your friends can't wait to see every single one of the photos you took!
SF adventure
Troy_M, Jul 2021
CJ was an informative and passionate tour guide. The eBikes made this trip a breeze for these 55+ yr olds. It was exciting to bike across the Golden Gate Bridge despite Karl the fog making himself known. Lunch in Saulsolito was relaxing and the ferry back was a perfect end to the trip!
Response from Host, Jul 2021
Hey Troy, we're so glad you enjoyed your tour with CJ. The electric bikes really are amazing. Glad you were able to meet our buddy, Karl the Fog!
Intermediate Bike Tour (Hills are Real)
Julie_S, Jul 2021
CJ was great. He warned us about the hills, and made sure that everyone knew they should go at their own pace. This is an intermediate level biking tour with three steep hills, and with the two way traffic on the bridge, and the headwinds on the Sausalito side, there were some tough moments, but CJ encouraged us at each step of the way. I enjoyed the complimentary bike parking and beer at The Joinery in Sausalito. We were treated very well. Funny thing: CJ kept apologizing about the fog. We knew he didn't cause it. ;)
Response from Host, Jul 2021
Hey Julie, CJ loves cycling and he is great at giving good tips and advice so everyone has a great ride! Glad you enjoyed the Joinery as well, it's one of our favorite restaurants in Sausalito!
Sister trip to visit my son who was interning in SF this summer
Kathy_M, Jul 2021
A Must Do in San Fran. I was with my son who is 20 and my sister and we all had a blast. Loved hearing about the history of the city and riding over the Golden Gate Bridge. We chose to ride back from Sausalito instead of taking the ferry or ubering and it did put us out of our comfort zone but so glad we did it.
Frank_M, Jul 2021
Our tour guide Benji was incredible. Patient, gave great history on what we rode by and kept us safe
Great bike ride
Jeffrey_W, Jun 2021
We had a fabulous ride and our guide Jeremiah was terrific. Jeremiah gave us great background of the local history and pointed out many interesting sites along the way. Highly recommend this trip. Great fun!
Response from Host, Jun 2021
Hey Jeffrey, we're so glad you enjoyed your guided tour with Jeremiah! He's a local who loves sharing his knowledge with visitors. Come see us again any time!
SF Bike Tour
Monte_D, Jun 2021
Wow! What an experience for this old fat guy from Texas! I was very hesitant about riding an electric bike on a 16 mile round trip over the Golden Gate Bridge! The Blazing Saddles employees were very helpful on getting us lined up with the bikes and safety helmets. John, our tour guide, was excellent. The ride by the shoreline and over the Golden Gate Bridge was a once in a lifetime experience fir all three of us! Worth the time and the expense. 👍👍
Response from Host, Jun 2021
Hey Texas Guy! So glad to hear you had a good tour with John. The electric bikes are definitely the way to go! So happy that we were part of your 'once in a lifetime experience'. Come see us again!
