The Basics

Walk, bike, or bus across the Golden Gate Bridge; sail or cruise the waters below it; or fly high above the attraction aboard a seaplane. Alternatively, combine your visit with sightseeing in the city; admission to Alcatraz; a half-day tour in Sonoma and Napa Valley; or hikes in Marin or on Angel Island.

Or, learn about the bridge’s history at the San Francisco terminus Welcome Center and explore other Marin County highlights such as seaside Sausalito, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and Muir Woods National Monument, home to Northern California redwood trees.

Golden Gate Bridge Guided Bicycle or E-Bike Tour from San Francisco to Sausalito
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. 👍👍

Golden Gate Bridge Guided Bicycle or E-Bike Tour from San Francisco to Sausalito
This was an amazing tour. The electric bikes are a must for a great experience. Our tour guide Jeremiah was awesome and very helpful. If you are booking during and post Covid ask questions. Ferry is closed, There is a cost for them to pick up bikes if you don’t bike back on your own. Also, bundle up if you are not use to cold weather 😊. Overall great experience

Bike the Golden Gate Bridge and Shuttle Tour to Muir Woods
Staff is very friendly and informative. Our driver was Sully, and he was awesome! We had signed up for the bike tour/Muir woods. However, we changed our minds that day. They then offered us the bus tour and it was wonderful! I would highly recommend using this company for your tours of San Francisco! Bike if you want, or take the bus tour like we did. You won’t be disappointed.

How to Get There

The San Francisco end of the bridge is located in the Presidio and can be reached from all parts of the city by car or public transportation. The bridge forms part of US Route 101 and California State Route 1—take any bridge-bound Golden Gate Transit bus to the Golden Gate Bridge Toll Plaza. By car, take the last San Francisco exit, right before the toll plaza, and park in the southeast parking lot.

When to Get There

The Golden Gate Bridge is striking year-round, but the best time to visit is when there are clear skies and fewer people. Stop by midweek in the early morning or late-afternoon; alternatively, visit on weekend afternoons. Avoid June through August when the infamous San Francisco fog rolls in and blocks the best views both morning and evening.

Where to Find the Best Views of the Golden Gate Bridge

Capture the bridge in its entirety on a coastal walking tour through San Francisco’s Presidio, where you’ll spot beautiful bridge views from vantage points at Crissy Field, Fort Point, and Baker Beach. To snap a photo from the north end of the bridge, choose a tour that crosses the bridge to the Marin Headlands. While Vista Point is the most popular bridge viewing spot in Marin, it can get crowded with cars, so take a short hike toward Battery Point and Slacker Hill for sweeping views of the city.
