I highly recommend this tour. But wear warm clothes it gets really windy and cold by the bridge. The views are spectacular! The appetizers are yummy and very filling.

This was an amazing tour. Would definitely make it a must do if you are at Fisherman and #39;s Wharf. The majestic views of the Golden Gate Bridge leave you breathless. Relaxing tour with great views of the San Fransisco skyline at night. Great way to see the diversity in the Bay Area.
