We had a terrific time with Ari while discovering beautiful scenery (and wines!) in the Russian River valley. It was a perfect mix of wine tasting in several wineries (all with their each style), bicycling (16km on a road with not many cars), and a lunch outdoors. While some of the wineries waive the tasting fee with Ari's groups, some other don't - so you'll need to plan a little bit of extra cash (though most of them do also accept credit cards). (et au fait, pour les francophones - Ari parle un excellent français!) ((Ari does speak an excellent French ;-))
Discovering the city on a bicycle ride with Beebe was a really fun experience, despite our lack of luck with the weather on that day! We learnt tons of stuff about the city over the 3 hours of the tour, all with a top-notch organization. Also, you will depart and arrive in a very cute neighborhood with awesome coffee and ice cream next door - so make sure to leave a little time before or after to enjoy these as well!
I'm a big fan of walking through cities, and for my first time in San Francisco this tour with Alex sure did not disappoint. She took us through areas of the city I would definitely haven't been to by myself, while sharing interesting (and dare I say, fun!) tidbits of history along the way.
I'd definitely recommend this tour to anyone who's visiting the city - in fact I wished there were similar tours where I live!

It was great hiking with Jérôme last weekend. He was super flexible (and I was very appreciative) when I asked him if he would go on a different hiking route than he had originally booked. He's also French, so I had a great time speaking with him a bit in French. Overall, a great person to have around!
