My tour guide on the bike ride was Rashad. He was informative and interesting, and the tour was the highlight of my (very short) visit to SF!! Since I had only a very short time to see any part of SF, I chose to go on two tours, one to Muir Woods (on Sunday Nov. 6), and the bike ride, both via Extranomical tours. It was a great way to use my limited time, and I would happily recommend these tours to any visitor to SF. I hope to come back to the city, and would love to go on more of your tours! less
