Highly recommeded for locals who want a really fun day out

I loved this tour. Highly recommended for locals who want a really fun day out and to see and learn some more about the city. Nick was an excellent guide, and he’d thought of everything – from customising each bike to each person, to taking you around the best spots in San Francisco, to the best picnic spot to stop for lunch. We discovered so many places in the city I would never have found on my own, and Nick was so knowledgeable throughout the whole tour. Thanks Nick!

Probably our favorite thing we did in San Francisco- going at our own pace, with everything perfectly mapped made for a delightful ride. We saw many of the classic sights, including the completely beautiful path to the Golden Gate Bridge.  what we loved too were the little neighborhood finds we probably wouldn’t have learned about otherwise- not only on the tour but Nick, the owner of Dandyhorse, gave us dozens of other recs, taking time to draw on a map and describe why he loves those spots. We took several of them and doing so made our trip SO MUCH BETTER. . Thank you Nick!

We’ve done many bike tours both domestically and internationally, and Nick was far and away the best bike tour guide we’ve ever had!!! His passion for San Francisco as well as his knowledge of history and interesting tidbits of information kept us thoroughly entertained throughout the trip. His service is top notch from the expert bike fitting and his careful attention to detail making sure we were all comfortable safe and enjoying ourselves. We had a spectacular dry sunny day so every stop was a wonderful photo opportunity. He was generous with his time his recommendations and willingness to help now and in the future. Highly recommend!!!

We live in SF, but we saw the city in a fresh new way!

Even though we live in San Francisco we saw parts of the city we hadn’t explored before. This is a great way to spend an afternoon and get a fresh local’s perspective of SF and discover new places.

I’m a local and I learned so much!

Nick is an amazing host and tour guide. I am a local and I’ve learned so much during this wonderful bike ride than I did all these years. I especially enjoyed all of our food stops.

the most fun thing we have done in San Francisco EVER

We have spent 3 full weeks in San Francisco over the past 3 years. When we are on vacation, we like to be super active and do lots of things. This without a doubt is our most favorite thing we have done on any of our visits. We have done segways, gone to Alcatraz, visited Muir Woods, and hit most of the museums. We’ve even gone with several different tour companies. This was the most …

the most fun thing we have done in San Francisco EVER

We have spent 3 full weeks in San Francisco over the past 3 years. When we are on vacation, we like to be super active and do lots of things. This without a doubt is our most favorite thing we have done on any of our visits. We have done segways, gone to Alcatraz, visited Muir Woods, and hit most of the museums. We’ve even gone with several different tour companies. This was the most fun thing we have done in San Francisco EVER. Truly most important was our tour guide. Nick was so informative, kind, helpful, educational, and fun. We absolutely loved learning about the city, and seeing so much of it. We aren’t bike riders, so we were reluctant about the distance. We did great and rode the Golden Gate Bridge which was totally worth it and fun. I could simply write about this for days. We loved it that much.

I’ve visited SF 25x and plenty on this tour was completely new to me

There are plenty of bike tour companies in SF, but nothing like Dandyhorse. It’s the lovingly personal creation of Nick Hormuth, who is both a bike nerd and a San Francisco nerd. Nick is California-earnest and outgoing–conceivably too much for some, but this crusty New Englander at least found him charming. (He used to be a first-grade teacher, which is easy to imagine.) The unique quirks begin with the bikes, which Nick builds himself. They’re benign mechanical Frankensteins with frames, suspensions, tires, handlebars, brakes, and gears mixed and matched from different kinds of machines to create *exactly* the right bikes for touring San Francisco. They continue with the destinations, which include some standard must-sees but also odd corners and shops you’ve never heard of but that Nick thinks (rightly) are really, really cool. I’ve probably visited San Francisco 25 times, and there was plenty on this tour that was completely new to me. While it lasts four or five hours and covers about 15 miles (San Francisco miles, at that) it’s not physically taxing. Total couch potatoes might strain, but Nick has a knack for finding the flattest route between two points and if you do any exercise at all you’ll be just fine. Highly recommended.

We fell in love with the city because of Nick. His tour was world class!!
