What You Can Expect

San Francisco Coastal Walking Tour from the Golden Gate Bridge to Cliff House

Walk along San Francisco's coast from the Golden Gate Bridge to Cliff House.

This San Francisco coastal walking tour begins at the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, which offers one of the best views of San Francisco Bay and the city’s stunning skyline (that is, when Karl the Fog hasn’t rolled into town). Here you’ll meet your guide, who will give you some background on the bridge’s interesting history and point out its notable features.

Once you’ve gotten to know each other, set off on a leisurely hike along the city’s Pacific coastline, strolling a trail along oceanside cliffs that look across to the Marin Headlands and provide incredible sweeping views around every turn.

You’ll soon reach Baker Beach, where you’ll want to have your camera ready for a postcard-worthy shot of the Golden Gate Bridge. Perhaps chat with some fisherman before continuing on to Sea Cliff, an illustrious neighborhood brimming with mansions and of course, more stunning sea views—especially from spots such as Eagle’s Point, a lovely hilltop overlook.

Eventually you’ll work your way down to the Sutro Baths at Land’s End, which have quite an intriguing story. These oceanside ruins are all that remain of the once-grand swimming pool complex built by former San Francisco Mayor Adolph Sutro in 1896. It burned to the ground in 1966.

End your hike with a celebratory drink at the Cliff House restaurant, a landmark eatery that was first erected in the late 19th century and is currently in its fourth incarnation. Settle in, relax and savor incredible Pacific views as the sun slowly sets on the horizon. No need to rush—you can spend as much time as you like before departing.

First of all you need good shoes, take some water and a snack. Also there is only one toilet stop at the beginning and at the end, so make sure you take the chance at the beginning. We had Devin O'Brien as our tour guide. He was very good, very patient and was very knowledgeable about San Francisco. He knew so much about the history, it was very interesting.

He was a very passionate resident of San Francisco.

The walk for us was perfect, perfect day, perfect walk. And at the end the guide got us a drink at the light house, the perfect end to the walk. Fantastic day. At the end he took us to the 38 bus stop so we could get right back into the city. Everyone was very friendly, very nice relaxing walk. We would never have gone that way if it wasn't for the tour, so we would have missed out.

This was a fantastic experience! We are so glad we took the Golden Gate Bride Tour and Coastal Hike tour. The trail is beautiful and we got a lot of amazing pictures that we will enjoy forever. We also had the best guide ever who is Victor. Victor is so kind, thoughtful and knowledgable. He really is a great person and we made a new friend. This is a great tour to take! Thank you. Brett and Quenie.

This is beautiful tour independent of the weather! One of the most beautiful walks I have ever taken in my life. If you take this tour, please ask for Victor. He is an amazing tour guide!!! He is extremely knowledgeable about the area! He is also one of the nicest people I have ever met, and his ability to make sure his tour clients feel safe and comfortable is far above and beyond what should be required! He saw to it that I was safe while climbing along some rocks, he waited patiently for me to take about a million photos, and he stopped to eat with me even though he was not hungry - he cared about my well being 100 while we were on the tour. He is a fantastic tour guide and an amazing person!

A fabulous walk from Golden Gate Bridge along the coast. I very much enjoyed seeing this different side of the city and watching the locals relaxing on the beaches.

This was a great walk. Definitely would recommend if you like to be outside and not on a bus. It does take 4 hours so be prepared for a lot of walking. Great views and friendly guide.
