Experience the iconic symbol of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, in all its glory with this tour that allows you to walk across the bridge, learn about its history and admire views of it from across the city. Plus, the flexibility of this combination tour allows you to make the most of your day in San Francisco!
At one of four times during the day (your choice), see the bridge up close on the all-new 45-minute historical Golden Gate Bridge walking tour. On this unique small-group tour, walk across the Golden Gate Bridge with your guide, who will provide history and interesting facts. Learn how the bridge was built, how it is maintained, the historical relevance of the bridge’s engineering and much more. You’ll also take part in the Bridge Photo Experience, where you’ll become a 'virtual visitor' of the bridge’s off-limits areas. Through green screen photography, you’ll appear to be climbing the main cables or standing atop the south tower!
Before or after your walking tour, see San Francisco’s top sights and enjoy views of the bridge from various locations on the hop-on hop-off bus tour (included). Along the bus route is the Aquarium of the Bay (entrance ticket included), where you can discover the bay's marine life and see everything from the barnacles that make their home on the steel foundation of the bridge to the sharks that patrol the waters. Stroll through 300 feet (92 meters) of crystal-clear tunnels to see more than 20,000 marine animals from the bay and nearby waters. And get close to many of these sea creatures at the interactive touch pool.
The hop-on hop-off bus provides convenient transportation for both the walking tour and the aquarium, plus 13 other stops! A live guide will be on board to direct you.
