What an experience! Breathtaking views whilst walking along this historical masterpiece. I'm afraid of heights, so I had to brace myself to look up and down, but was so happy I did. I walked at a leisurely pace and throughly enjoyed the afternoon walking both ways.

A breath taking lovely view ! Didn't have a chance to actually have a ride back and forth through it - like some tourists did. But just to finally see this famous icon with my own eyes was satisfying. I was lucky enough it wasn't too foggy so I could take some good pics. I'd like to recommend Bay Bridge... More

Very cool free attraction. Parking can be tough. About an hour to walk to first tower and back from parking lot. Bring a jacket as it can be quite chilly even on an August sunny day

The full 5 stars .... unmissable !! it's cold on the bridge and winds are high but you so have to do this. great merch' in visitors centre too .. get a taxi for about $25 from the wharf, and then there are regular buses back too. trying to park there is difficult and I think walking it is better...

Everyone knows that the Golden Gate Bridge is an American Landmark, but words cannot express the moment of awe as you look up and see the towering beams, perhaps shrouded under a layer of fog at the top. You'd be smart to take a bus tour across the bridge, to leave your hands free to snap some magnificent photos. All... More

Iconic views from the north shore, worth a quick trip by car or public transport to see the bridge and bustling city beyond!
