Though it doesn’t often get the attention of its famous sibling, the Golden Gate, the San Francisco Bay Bridge is spectacular in its own right. Once the largest and most expensive bridge of its time, in 75 years the Bay Bridge has proved critics wrong – the dream of connecting San Francisco to Oakland would not be stopped by anything. Logistics, cost, and politics couldn’t stop the expansion, and now the Bay Bridge has made history yet again my becoming the world’s largest self -anchored suspension bridge. Safely transporting the 280,000 automobiles that transverse its roads every day, the Bay Bridge connects San Francisco to Oakland, with a little stop at Yerba Buena Island along the way.
Excellent activity. Extremely good tour guide. Best fun my daughter and I have had in a long time. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
The tour guide was not particularly friendly but very knowledgeable throughout the city tour. Alcatraz was great. The audio guide was very easy to follow and the cruise ship staff very good at organising large numbers of people. Definitely recommend but book early as trips to Alcatraz were booked out for a week.
This saved us a lot of time and hassle in San Francisco. Cable car fares are $6.00 per ride and this pass meant we could ride as often as we wanted, and also got around SFO on the metro buses as well. Pity it didn't include BART too.
Heading westbound on the Bay Bridge will cost a toll: 2-axle vehicles pay $6 Monday-Friday carpool hours (5 a.m. – 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.), $4 non carpool hours, and $5 on Saturday and Sunday.
