Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito Bike Tour

Family-Friendly Ride

Your 3-hour Golden Gate Bridge bike tour starts at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco, where you’ll meet your guide. Then take off along a mostly flat route that follows the waterfront of San Francisco Bay.

Pedal past sights like Aquatic Park Cove, part of San Francisco Maritime National Historic Park, and enjoy views of Alcatraz Island and the Golden Gate Bridge. Then continue past Fort Mason Center, a National Historic Landmark; Marina Green, where beautiful homes face the water; the Palace of Fine Arts, built for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition; and Crissy Field, part of Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

When you arrive at Fort Point, at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge, take advantage of a great photo op of the iconic red towers before crossing the bridge’s 1.7-mile (2.7-km) span, which ends at Vista Point, another panoramic viewpoint for photos of the bay and city skyline. Complete the last stretch of your bike tour into Sausalito, a small, upscale town known for its picturesque waterfront scenery.

From Sausalito, you will be on your own to continue exploring however you wish. Continue biking around the area, using your provided map to perhaps conquer the hills of the Marin Headlands or see more of San Francisco, such as the Presidio or Ocean Beach; refuel with food and drinks at one of Sausalito’s many restaurants (own expense); and return to the city at your leisure, either by biking back across the bridge or taking the ferry from Sausalito with your bike (ferry tickets are at your own expense).

Your bike tour includes full-day bike rental, so you can use your bike independently before and/or after your guided tour. Select a departure time for your tour when booking.

This was a great tour of the City. We had so much fun but the cyclists on the bridge were very aggressive and rude. I was shaking by the time we got across the bridge but it was worth it because the views were spectacular.

We initially signed up for the 10am bike tour, but due to some confusion on our end did not show up for the tour until the afternoon tour was supposed to start. Totally our fault, so they could have easily turned us away and not provided refund. Instead, they provided us with a map of the city and bike rentals with helmets and we had a great time! It's unfortunate we missed the tour so I can't comment on the quality of the tour, but their customer service and the quality of their bikes was great!

Great tour and well priced. Definitely recommend doing this when in SF. Beautiful bike ride and it was fun to ride over the Golden Gate bridge. Our guide let us stop while on the bridge and take photos. Moderate level of fitness required due to the length and a few hills thrown in. You can keep and use the bikes for a 24 hour period.

My husband and I enjoyed this trip very much. Especially when you cross the bridge and get into Sausalito. It is very special.

This was a challenging bike tour, but really amazing views and fun! Going over the bridge was awesome and Saulsalito was a lovely little town. It was a big group, but the guide did a good job keeping us altogether. We saw some great sites along the way. Remember, this is a hilly place, so be prepared to peddle!

We were apprehensive about taking this tour due to the weather forecast. We were assured that it would still be a great trip and despite the rain showers and cold it was,! Our Guide, Jose, was very knowledgeable and he took great care of our group. Pace of the ride was perfect, allowing us time to take photos and just enjoy the beautiful scenery. The views were spectacular and riding across the bridge was much easier than I had thought. Ironically, taking this tour in the rain allowed us to enjoy the bridge without crowds. And halfway across the sun came out and stayed out during our ride to Sausalito. I would recommend spending time in Sausalito and taking the ferry back. Its a beautiful and quaint village. Dont miss an opportunity to take this bike tour!

Our tour guide Dan, he was great! He was so patient with us considering that most of us are not a pro-cyclist. He stopped and explained all the land marks in detailed.

Highly recommended if you have the interest with spending almost 1 full day out door on your own, cycling and enjoying the beautiful San Francisco. Also, better to purchase the return ferry ticket from the bike tour provider in advanced rather than getting the ticket at the ferry terminal unless you have a Clipper pass card purchased beforehand.
