  • Highlight of our San Francisco trip! "Our group of 6 thoroughly enjoyed the bike ride across the Golden Gate bridge, and were in awe of the redwoods at Muir Woods. Great directions from Dylan's tours, and it was an awesome way to see Muir Woods since we didn't have a car. Plenty of time in Sausalito to grab lunch and enjoy the waterfront, plus an easy to find meeting point to catch the shuttle. Great local family-owned business that I would highly recommend!”

  • Best Of Both! "The independence I had was great. The company gave us the bike and a map for getting to the bridge and then to Sausalito . I was given clear directions for dropping off the bike and meeting the shuttle to Muir Woods, where I was able to enjoy a peaceful lunch on the waterfront. Muir Woods was breathtaking and I didn’t have to worry about organizing a car up myself. Thank you Dylan’s for providing this tour!”

  • Awesome way to see the Golden Gate and Muir Woods! "The ride across the Golden Gate Bridge was awesome. The map they provided was very easy to follow and it was great that the bike was in great shape. Had plenty of time to stroll around Sausalito and have some lunch before heading off to Muir Woods. Our driver and guide was a safe and alert driver, I’m thankful I didn’t have to drive myself! - Thank you Dylan's tours for an amazing experience!"
