What You Can Expect

San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge Bike Tour

Riding Across the Golden Gate Bridge

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.

I highly recommend this bike tour, as long as you are booked with the right tour guide. Our guide I think it was Robert, I was a little under the weather aka hungover the day we did our tour, but he was so accommodating and took the time to check in with me throughout the tour. He was very attentive and constantly made sure everyone was staying with the group and that no one was left behind or lost. He also gave good pointers on each persons bike and how to get the best ride. He was so knowledgeable and gave such extensive information at every point we stopped. He even offered to take photos for everyone.

By the time the tour had ended, I was fully recovered and I was so glad that I had booked this tour! I would probably do it again, if I'm ever back in the city and have the time!

I loved my Golden Gate Bridge bike tour! It was a real highlight of my trip. I got to see a lot of San Francisco in a short time while enjoying a amazing bike ride, lead by our brilliant and very knowledgeable tour guide Robert! This is a must for people visiting San Fran! Crossing the bridge on the bike is a great way to tick this off you must do list!

Excellent bike tour! Our guide Trevor shared great information and was a lot of fun. The tour ends in Sausalito and you can hang out and have lunch with spectacular views of San Francisco, ride back over the bridge or take the ferry. We kept our bikes for the rest of the day and rode around the city. Highly recommend!

Went on this tour my first full day in the city. It was a great way to see much of the tourist area and learn about other neighborhoods and areas to explore through the week. Robert made plenty of stops and was very attentive to the needs of the group and very knowledgeable of the areas we biked through. The price of the tour was very reasonable and worth it. Good exercise too. The bridge was foggy and cold in sections, but that is the city for you. Cold one minute and hot the next. Make sure you carry a jacket even when it is 85F and sunny when you leave the hotel. The ferry back was nice. I opted to return the bike straight away. Then walked along north beach all the way to market and then back to union square area where I was staying. I was on an early tour and still had most of the afternoon free ... went to hippieville Haight Ashbury and bought some weed.

Jim our tour guide was wonderful! Very knowledable throughout the bike ride, saw wonderful sites, a lot of amazing pictures were taken! A few large hills to bike up, and the line to catch the ferry back in Sausalito was very long! But overall Jim was great and we definitely recommend this bike tour!

One of the best experiences on our trip to San Francisco!
My older teens loved the biking trip across the Golden Gate bridge which included tours past the Ghirardelli chocolate factory, homes in posh SF, and the Arts Palace.
We had a great lunch in Sausalito after the tour. And lots of fun on the ferry trip back into SF.
This was a great way to experience San Francisco!

The tour was incredible! My husband and I did this tour on our honeymoon on July 1st. Our tour guide was awesome. He was informative and also took pictures for us and the other people on the tour. Riding across the Golden Gate Bridge will be a memory we will keep forever!

Fantastic four at fantastic value. Steven was a great guide. Can and #39;t believe we actually ride across the golden gate bridge. Such a great journey. Great workout for the athletic family. Three challenging hills that you can walk your bike up if needed but I recommnd powering through.
