San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito Bike Tour

Bay City Bike

Description
Led by a local guide, this 3-hour San Francisco bike tour is a great sightseeing activity for all ages and biking levels. You’ll follow a mostly flat route along San Francisco Bay’s scenic northern waterfront before crossing the Golden Gate Bridge.

What You'll Do

Depart in the morning or afternoon from Fisherman’s Wharf, where your guide outfits you with a proper bike, helmet and any necessary equipment for the ride. Then hop on your bicycle and pedal to nearby Aquatic Park Cove, part of the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park.

Cycle down the pier and snap pics of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz Island before moving on to Fort Mason Center. The buildings of this former US Army post, a National Historic Landmark, are now used as a cultural and educational complex.

From here, pedal up a steep but short path that flattens out toward the Marina Green, located in the Marina District. While you cycle past opulent homes, enjoy a scenic panorama that includes the Palace of Fine Arts, Angel Island and the bridge as your backdrop.

Arriving at Crissy Field, also part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, glimpse shorebirds inside the restored marsh. From Fort Point, gaze up at the red towers of the bridge and prepare to cross the 3.6-mile (5.8-km) route, which follows a wide path for bicycles. You’ll be rewarded on the other side at Vista Point, including views of the city skyline.

At the end of your guided tour you can continue your biking adventure at your own pace for the rest of the day. You'll be provided with a cycle path map to help guide you around San Francisco and nearby coastal areas, including the picturesque town of Sausalito — renowned for its wide selection of restaurants and cafes, perfect for when hunger kicks in.

For a more challenging bike ride, follow the recommended route on the map and head up to the Marin Headlands. If city biking is your forte, use a ferry ticket for your return to San Francisco, where you can follow the map and continue to explore the city. Points of interest include the Presidio, Golden Gate Park and Ocean Beach.

"Our tour guide Dan, he..."

January 16, 2018 - 

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.

"This biking tour was really..."

November 3, 2017 - 

This biking tour was really very enjoyable and our guide was fantastic. We were only a few people and we had fantastic views, got good tips and enjoyed biking during daytime in hands of his good guidance with security. Sausalito is a nice small village on the other side, well worth to visit, we had a wonderful lunch and took the last ferry back with our bikes. Very much recommended, we visited October 2016.


"Our tour was excellent and..."

November 1, 2017 - 

Our tour was excellent and tour guide Stacee was superb. Her knowledge, temperament and love for the Bay area made a beautiful ride even better She even fixed my tyre puncture within a couple minutes flat!


"This bike tour was the..."

October 28, 2017 - 

This bike tour was the best thing we did while in SF! Crossing the Golden Gate Bridge itself was exhilarating. A great way to see the sights. Our tour guide Lubo was knowledgeable and fun, and all the staff at the bike shop were very helpful. We had a great day, thank you!


"This was the best thing..."

October 28, 2017 - 

This was the best thing we did on our SF trip! A great way to see the sights, and going across the bridge itself was exhilarating. Our tour guide Lubo was knowledgeable and fun, and all the staff at the shop were extremely helpful.


"So much fun!! Leisure bike..."

October 5, 2017 - 

So much fun!! Leisure bike ride for the whole family. There are a few steep hills but you can walk up with the bike up. Wouldn’t recommend for the elderly. The views are spectacular and our guide was very knowledgeable. Enjoyed riding across the bridge, bay and into the adorable saulsalito. Loved it


"This trip was by far..."

September 3, 2017 - 

This trip was by far the best bridge bike tour! This was reinsured when we cycled past numerous other bike tours that looked somewhat dull.
Robert our tour guild was amazing and definitely made it!


"A really great experience- a..."

September 2, 2017 - 

A really great experience- a few hills cycle up- which are ok if you are reasonably fit- recommend to get the ferry back.


"This was a lot of..."

August 27, 2017 - 

This was a lot of fun! Our guide was very informative and made sure to stop periodically to let the whole group catch up. Be prepared for 2-3 more challenging hills, though most of the ride was flat or downhill. If you are planning to take the ferry back from Sausalito, be sure to buy your ferry ticket when you rent your bike and pay close attention to the ferry schedules. It's a bit chaotic bringing your bike back on the ferry lots of people so just be prepared to be patient and enjoy the beautiful scenery. If you plan to ride the bike back instead of taking the ferry, just know that's on your own and it's a lot of uphill. If you're not familiar with the city and haven't ridden across the Golden Gate, this is a great way to do it!


"A good time for a..."

August 25, 2017 - 

A good time for a family of four. Our guide, can't remember his name, he was born in the Chech Republic was informative and good natured. Nice guy and cared about the riders - so faster than the others. Parts of the ride were hard but it was only for a few minutes. Well worth the price if you want a unique opportunity to ride across the Golden Gate Bridge -this is t he one to take. We also kept our bikes and ferried them across back to Fisherman's Warfe. Check the schedule, timing is tricky, we lucked out.


"Fantastic tour! This tour was..."

August 21, 2017 - 

Fantastic tour! This tour was especially memorable for our family. The guide provided an excellent history of the city, while enjoying a wonderful activity views from the bridge were the best!


"Great tour guide. Be prepared..."

August 21, 2017 - 

Great tour guide. Be prepared for a few steep hills. Many picture worthy stops along the way.


"Can't say enough great things..."

August 14, 2017 - 

Can't say enough great things about our guide and the ride. We took the ferry from Sausalito to San Francisco and rode bikes back to Sausalito. Plenty of stops to take great photos.


"The advertisement leads you to..."

August 9, 2017 - 

The advertisement leads you to believe that the tour is just the golden gate bridge, it.s actually a 9 mile tour which ends on the other side of the bridge. My tour guide told our group that for an additional 10 dollars I could leave the bike in Sausalito and return by ferry without the bicycle. Best decision ever, I walked around, had lunch, didn't have to worry about the bicycle and taking it on the ferry, and then having to return it to the bike place. Dress in layers, it's chilly going over the bridge, then gets very warm in Sausalito, Overall, great time, glad I did it !!!


"We really enjoyed this tour...."

July 31, 2017 - 

We really enjoyed this tour. Got to experience San Francisco in a way we would have never had before. Our tour guide was very friendly and informative. It is approximately a 7 mile ride with a few challenging hills.
The wait time for the ferry is more like 2 hrs to return so we rode back.


"Amazing. Highly recommended...."

July 29, 2017 - 

Amazing. Highly recommended.


"Good way to see the..."

July 23, 2017 - 

Good way to see the city. Not an easy ride though.


"The tour was awesome. We..."

July 23, 2017 - 

The tour was awesome. We arrived just in the nick of time as the group was leaving. But we made it! Make sure you get there 30min early! The guide was very helpful. We enjoyed the ride so much we decided to bring the kids to experience it.


"What a way to view..."

July 16, 2017 - 

What a way to view the Golden Gate bridge and the beautiful water ways of San Francisco all whilst exercising. This is the perfect way for a family of 5 to be outdoors and to be tourists.


"This one my wife picked...."

July 11, 2017 - 

This one my wife picked. Its a good long bike ride.
I think I enjoyed it more then my wife.
The Golden gate bridge is much bigger than you think.
Sausalito is a very beautiful little town with great cafe's and restaurants.


"I am so glad that..."

July 6, 2017 - 

I am so glad that I went on this bicycle tour! What a great way to see San Francisco!


"We had a great time!..."

July 4, 2017 - 

We had a great time! This was such a great way for our family to experience some of the city, the Golden Gate, and Sausalito. Our tour guide, Robert, was terrific and made the bike trip very memorable. Riding over the Golden Gate is amazing and quite an experience. It's a bit hazardous because of the amount of other people walking and riding across, just a warning to proceed with care and be prepared.
Recommend that you spend time in Sausalito and take the ferry back. Highly recommend this tour and Robert!


"What a great way to..."

May 30, 2017 - 

What a great way to spend a morning! Our tour guide Matt was outstanding! I highly recommend this bike tour. We had a blast.

May 6, 2017 - 

Great afternoon out. The bridge was busy but highly recommend and even saw whales from the bridge!


"Our family would highly recommend..."

April 25, 2017 - 

Our family would highly recommend this tour. In addition to cycling across the Golden Gate Bridge, we got to spend some time in Sausalito, and we also were able to see the Palace of fine arts. Our tour guide Robert was fantastic and really took some time to talk with us and the kids. Our kids said it was their favorite tour during our trip!


"This tour was the highlight..."

April 19, 2017 - 

This tour was the highlight of our visit. The views were spectacular! Our guide was knowledgable and a great photographer. We took away many great shots. I would definitely recommend this tour!

March 26, 2017 - 

Robert did an excellent job! He was highly knowledgeable and helpful. It was a great tour!


"Awesome Experience! Our guide, Matt..."

March 20, 2017 - 

Awesome Experience! Our guide, Matt was amazing! He was informative, communicative and funny! We saw several sites along our trip to the Golden Gate bridge that we never even knew about in San Francisco! He told us what to do each step of the way - and it was one of the highlights of our trip! We biked with our family of 5 - teenagers and adults - it was so much fun! Biking to Sausalito and ending the day with a cocktail and a view of the water - perfect! I highly recommend this and our guide Matt - Great day and an experience we will never forget!


"What a great way to..."

March 19, 2017 - 

What a great way to see the Golden Gate Bridge and other sites. Our guide, Robert was fabulous. Robert explained everything, let us know when we would be stopping, best photo ops. Highly recommend.

"Really enjoyed this adventure. It..."

January 31, 2017 - 

Really enjoyed this adventure. It was a bit strenuous, but well worth it. We took the ferry back to SF. We also hired a cab to take us to Muir Woods from Sauselito since we were already in the area. Met other travelers whom we really enjoyed, even had lunch with them. A very good day.


"This tour had been recommended..."

January 10, 2017 - 

This tour had been recommended by a friend who said it was one of the highlights of her recent trip to the Bay Area. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would also highly recommend it to others who are looking for a fun way to get some exercise, do some sightseeing, learn some fun facts, and experience the incredible Golden Gate Bridge. Even though my teenage daughter wasn't initially looking forward to it, this tour ended up being one of her favorite activities! Our tour guide, Robert, was fantastic!


"Great tour. Great way to..."

January 1, 2017 - 

Great tour. Great way to get exercise while learning about the city.


"My friend and I loved..."

December 21, 2016 - 

My friend and I loved this tour. The views were beautiful. We opted to have lunch in Sausalito and take the ferry back. The ferry line was very long so look at the schedule and leave some extra time to get back!


"This was the favorite of..."

December 19, 2016 - 

This was the favorite of all the things I did in San Francisco. So cool!


"Great way to see the..."

December 13, 2016 - 

Great way to see the City! Our guide, Robert, was great. I chose the electric-assist bike due to back issues--best money ever pent! Nothing like the view from the Bridge. Enjoyed lunch in Sausalito, the ferry ride back. Book this--you'll be glad you did!


"We had an awesome experience!..."

December 6, 2016 - 

We had an awesome experience! This was a great way to see the city and so much fun. Our tour guide Aaron was great and we would recommend this adventure to everyone!


"Enjoyed our tour via bike...."

November 21, 2016 - 

Enjoyed our tour via bike. It was raining however, we still went. It was so cool. Easy bikeroad despite 3 hills.
Sun came out once we hit the Golden gate bridge. Enjoyed our tour guide, he was very personably, gave us lots of information as we went along and made sure we were all together. Definitely something to do.


"Our guide was fantastic! He..."

November 6, 2016 - 

Our guide was fantastic! He was patient and very helpful. He took us to places we wouldn't have gone on our own.


"Brilliant day spent with such..."

October 23, 2016 - 

Brilliant day spent with such an informative guide who paced the ride with lots of breaks for those of us like me who struggled with some of San Franciscos hills.

"Amazing tour and Jim was..."

October 18, 2016 - 

Amazing tour and Jim was an awesome guide


"A very well-planned and enjoyable..."

October 9, 2016 - 

A very well-planned and enjoyable tour. Our guide was laid-back, humorous and gave the party an informative and interesting commentary throughout. The pace was suitable for all and we had plenty of time for photos and sight-seeing at the various stop-offs. The ride over the Golden Gate bridge was an unbelievable experience and we appreciated the time taken to give us local information on arrival in Sausalito. The bikes were all in good working order and the drop-off after the ferry ride back across the bay was easy. A very good tour and well worth the price.


"Very good tour worth doing,..."

September 29, 2016 - 

Very good tour worth doing, our guide was great.


"This was an excellent trip,..."

September 28, 2016 -

Friendly and helpful company. They went the extra mile for us. Would definitely use again.

September 14, 2016 - 

This was an excellent trip, bikes were in good condition, safety checks done, tour guide was funny and knowledgeable a perfect way to travel the GGbridge with kids


"A great way to see..."

September 13, 2016 - 

A great way to see the bridge, get a different perspective of the city and to get to Sausalito. Our guide was very informative and was prepared to adjust the schedule to accommodate us oldies especially on the couple of hills on the route. Great fun and a must do on a first visit to San Francisco


"Jim was the greatest! He..."

September 3, 2016 - 

Jim was the greatest! He was funny, extremely informative, and had a ton of energy. My friend and I truly loved this tour, loved the bikes, and loved San Fancisco. We would absolutely recommend this tour to others. Thanks so much!


"I loved my Golden Gate..."

August 16, 2016 - 

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!


"Our tour guide was excellent...."

August 14, 2016 - 

Our tour guide was excellent. It was an invigorating and great sightseeing opportunities. Definitely recommend this tour.


"I highly recommend this bike..."

August 12, 2016 - 

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!


"Excellent bike tour! Our guide..."

August 4, 2016 - 

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..."

August 1, 2016 - 

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..."

July 26, 2016 - 

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..."

July 16, 2016 - 

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..."

July 15, 2016 - 

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...."

July 11, 2016 - 

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.


"This tour was amazing!..."

July 10, 2016 - 

This tour was amazing!


"Wow! This tour was amazing!!..."

July 6, 2016 - 

Wow! This tour was amazing!! It was such an easy and breathtaking tour with an amazing and friendly guide who knew so much about all the attractions of the City. I loved ending in Sausalito and hearing all the fascinating stories along the way. Such a perfect day.


"Guide was very helpful and..."

July 6, 2016 - 

Guide was very helpful and accomodating. Fun and beautiful views.


"The trip only lasted 2.25..."

July 4, 2016 - 

The trip only lasted 2.25 hours instead of the 3 hours, but it was still a great trip.


"Great and fun experience. The..."

June 27, 2016 - 

Great and fun experience. The views were amazing and it was so worth it!


"Fantastic experience. A couple of..."

June 26, 2016 - 

Fantastic experience. A couple of hills but overall a relaxed ride. Tour guide Jimmy was awesome had a true love for San Fran which was evident throughout the tour. Don't forget sun screen and bridge pedestrian traffic is high so it allows for a casual experience.


"Great way to see the..."

June 25, 2016 - 

Great way to see the Golden Gate Bridge upfront and an absulutely stunning view of San Francisco. Dinner in Sausalito was great as well. Be aware iif you are taking the ferry that at the end of the day the lines are long and will need to wait at least a half hour to board. Don and #39;t miss this op!


"The bike ride was fun...."

June 20, 2016 - 

The bike ride was fun.


"Great, fun, active way to..."

June 18, 2016 - 

Great, fun, active way to see SF and experienced the Golden Gate Bridge!


"Great tour, thanks Jim our..."

June 16, 2016 - 

Great tour, thanks Jim our guide! Wonderful way to see Golden Gate Bridge
A challenged bike rider, I did walk the bike up the 2 hills the group waited I wasn and #39;t the only one to walk. Well worth it. Biked to Sausalito and road the Ferry back! As a couple we really enjoyed the day!


"Absolutely recommended!..."

June 6, 2016 - 

Absolutely recommended!


"Really enjoyed our bike tour,..."

June 6, 2016 - 

Really enjoyed our bike tour, lucky for us no-one else booked the same time, so we had a private tour, really enjoyed the lovely scenery along the way!


"A great way to see..."

June 4, 2016 - 

A great way to see and explore San Francisco. Robert who took us round was so knowledgeable and helpful- even with taking photos of us during the trip. Recommend coming back on the ferry.


"The tour company was incredibly..."

May 29, 2016 - 

The tour company was incredibly great. From cool cycles to an awesome guide, everything was perfect. But dealing with Viator, however, has been more than disappointing. Why can't you guys declare all the exclusions while booking the tour. For example, there were additional charges for:
a Bike insurance
b Ferry ticket for return journey
c Even something as small as rental for helmets
In short, your partners are great. But you guys, well, not very sure!


"Well worth having a guide..."

May 17, 2016 - 

Well worth having a guide to take you over the Golden Gate Bridge. He took you to all the places to get the best views. The trip was a three hour ride but it was set to every bodies pace most of it was on cycle paths. There were two hills but you could walk your bike up if you wished. The ride down the hill at the end into Sausalito was brilliant. A very enjoyable day with a ferry ride back with your bike at the end.


"Out of my whole experience..."

April 28, 2016 - 

Out of my whole experience in San Francisco this was by far the best one! Jim our lovely guide was a cool guy who showed his true professionality when we 'lost' two people in our group of 7. He went out of his way to bike back, finding out later they had missed the coffee stop and were already waiting further along the road.

As I am a tour guide myself in Valencia, Spain Funtours Valencia I could only imagine how inconvenient this was for the rest of the group but he kept his smile and didn't make any of us feel uncomfortable about it. He was very informative and not at all telling us what we could have found out by reading a guide book.

The ride was just awesome because we had a beautiful sunny day, clear skies and great views from the Golden Gate. The ride down to Sausalito was awesome! A little steeper and therefor great to speed a little if you are experienced on a bike. You could go by your own pace anyways and the two small parts of climbing a hill were minor to me and your gears were sufficient for a steeper climb.

All in all I hoped for Jim to be our guide after all the great comments here and I was lucky to have him. The whole experience from A - Z was just perfect and even taking the ferry back was an extra to the tour. Though not included in the price the whole thing was worth every penny!


"I would highly recommend this..."

April 24, 2016 - 

I would highly recommend this trip. The group was small 5 people and the tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. We stopped few times, on the way to Golden Gate and the tour guide talked us through few interesting facts about SF, Golden Gate and Alcatraz etc. There was plenty opportunities for photos, weather was great and you get to use the bike for full day if you wish.


"Great. Just great! Unfamiliar with..."

April 17, 2016 - 

Great. Just great! Unfamiliar with the city, I used my map and found my way. I was a bit out of sorts when I checked in. The young man was friendly and helpful. From the start, the experience was A 1. How lucky I was, I thought later, that I clicked on this tour--rather than any other--because it just got better and better! The guys were great. they set me up with a bike and adjusted it for my height. We met Steve our guide. He asked us where we were from and proceeded to field any questions. Once we got rollin,' we stopped at our first tour-stop 5 minutes in. I was having some difficulty. Steve explained to me how to shift gears and did not at all make me feel foolish for not knowing how to work a bicycle. We were off again. At our stops, he was enthusiastic about how cool the info was I appreciated it more than others. He knew his stuff, he welcomed questions, and happily offered to take photos for us along the way. I was at the back of the line, because I was all about soaking it in. Our guide even tailored his speed and info for our group. It was perfect weather for this Bike Across the Bridge and became the highlight of my whole trip to San Francisco trip. Here's why! The pinnacle of the whole experience was the unexpected pleasure of genuine and true interaction. Let's face it or you shall soon see San Francisco reeks of all things touristy. And the city gets no awards from me on cleanliness. it was so refreshing to stumble upon an experience with helpful genuine people who are sincere in such a way that you feel as though you matter--on a human level. Oh wait! The Absolute Pinnacle was looking straight up from tower 1 in the heart of Our Golden Gate Bridge. But a real close 2nd was being presented this magnificent sight courtesy of truly surprising people. Wow! I recommend that you click on this one! And I will add that if you receive great joy, tipping is a great way to keep positive energy alive and flowing! Everyone wins! I know I won!

Well, it rained for part of the trip but we made the most of it! And still were able to get some really good pics! Our tour guide, Mike, was very knowledgeable about the history of San Fran and the Golden Gate Bridge he was super laid back and a lot of fun! In the end, we had a private tour because everyone else cancelled so it was our lucky day even though it rained!

Great Bike Tour. Tour Guide was knowledgeable and funny. Loved that the tour hit some not so popular but amazing sites. Tour is longer than stated, but we didn't mind. Don't plan anything immediately after to give yourself time if it runs over.

Great Bike tour!! These guys definitely make it fun. They were honest when we asked them if we could bike back and they said that it would be rather ambitious. By the end of the 2.5 hour tour we were spent. We took a ferry back to fishermans wharf.
