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.

Julie, our bike tour guide provided clear instructions on how the group would proceed in biking towards the Golden Gate bridge and was very pleasant.

In my opinion this is the best way to experience the City. Staff professional and really friendly. In one word I will describe this experience as "perfect"
Great experience!

We had a great time on this tour. It's so amazing to be able to bike across the Golden Gate Bridge! We ended up biking into Sausalito and having an excellent dinner there. The ferry wasn't running during our tour, so we took a Lyft back to San Francisco. We had a great time overall!
Great views!

Tour guide Eli did a good job pointing out the historic sites and giving some background. There are some pretty steep hills to navigate and the bridge can be tight in spots. The ferry from Sausalito wasn’t running due to construction so we just turned around and came back. A bit more of a workout than I was expecting.
A day to remember

I loved all the historical info we were told and shown. I appreciate our tour guy. I’m so sorry I forgot his name
See the Golden Gate Bridge up close and personal!

We had an absolute blast on our guided bicycle tour of the Golden Gate Bridge. Eli, our guide, was knowledgeable, friendly, and went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed the tour. He took us for an in-depth tour of the Presidio and the Palace of Fine Arts after riding the bridge. We chose not to cross the bridge into Sausalito because the ferry was not in service and we had time commitments. That will be something we'll have to do next time. There are a few quite steep hills, but nothing insurmountable, and the most difficult hills were earlier in the tour. Our youngest had some trouble with her gear shift (it was a different style than her bike at home) and had to walk up a couple of the hills. Biking on the bridge was incredible!
SF Bridge to Remember

Despite the day forecasting rain we persevered and our guide Judy was prepared and provided historical facts of the city. Sadly the rain was coming down too hard for us to make a round trip. That would have earned a 5 star rating. Also the bikes could have been prechecked. One of our bikes squeaked and the repair shop was closed. Having exchanged one bike already due to a chain malfunction, the rain poncho didn’t make it on the 2nd bike. A real necessity when the heavy rain started. In the future the guide should have extras for the riders.
Fantastic experience

The trip was good and it hit a lot of great tourist attractions which is a plus. The price was good and I love the electric bike because it helped with getting up steep hills. Also the tour guide was great and very energetic. The only downside was the history lesson regarding how Europeans discovered America (already discovered) and how the Indians were totally disregarded. However, I know that real history can be to much for people, so the tour guide did the right thing.

A must-do excursion!

We took a 3 hour standard bike tour along the coast, stopping a number of vistas including the place of fine arts, Chrissy fields, and the Golden Gate Bridge! Our tour guide was Adam Ringel who was EXCELLENT! He really knows his history and made the tour very enjoyable. There were only 2 hills that were a bit difficult to ride up on the standard bike (we are from a very flat Indiana), but I would do it again. If doing the other tour seeing many neighborhoods of San Fran, I absolutely would have upgraded to the EBike. Our tour ended in beautiful Sausalito and Adam gave excellent restaurant recommendations (we ate at the Trident). ***IF YOU TAKE AN AFTERNOON TOUR, DO NOT MISS THE FERRY BACK TO FISHERMANS WHARF. We did this tour on a Friday 1-4pm. The last ferry left Sausalito at 5pm, giving us barely enough time to have a meal there. If you don’t catch the ferry back, you will have to ride back yourself, unguided. Also note that the ferry reportedly does not allow Ebikes on board, only standard bikes. There is a fee you can pay (approx $15) to leave a bike in Sausalito if you don’t want to take it on the ferry. The ferry was awesome and drove right past Alcatraz providing excellent views for photo ops. Upon returning to Fishermans wharf, we had another 1-2 hours with the bikes before returning them to the shop! Would absolutely recommend this tour, especially with Adam!

Tour guide was nice and informed. One of our three bikes was rather old and uncomfortable. The ride was pleasant. We did not expect to be charged a fee to drop off the bikes in Sausalito if we didn’t purchase a ferry ticket back to the bike drop off.
