"How do we get to the Golden Gate Bridge?" This is the most commonly asked question visitors to SF have, and the 2 Hour Golden Gate Bridge tour is the answer! This popular tour is designed to provide the complete Golden Gate Bridge experience - you can even walk the length of the Bridge, if desired. You'll avoid the crowds that can tie up the vista points, by coming with us to a scenic spot that is closed to cars during the busy season. Generally, this is a much more intimate or semi-private tour (we're limited to 14 guests, but 6-8 is the usual count). In addition to the bridge, you'll pass some classic and little-known SF points of interest and spend a quick 5 minutes with a small Jedi Master at Lucasfilm's public plaza. On the way, you'll be treated to an informative and entertaining narrative by your guide, an SF native / professional actor, who has performed at Shakespeare's Globe, London. Some hotel pick-up/drop-offs can be pre-arranged at no extra cost.
