new bridge

bridge was rebuilt about two years ago. Old bridge is still being dismantled. You can now walk or ride a bike part way on this bridge but I have not done this.

A good chance to see what is going on, if you go by various ferries available you can see so much more. Plenty to do and see a a specific view from the drudge.

On a great day it is amazing. First time we went to walk across the fog had come down and we could not see more than a metre in front of us - next time brilliant sunshine - a wonderful experience and an easy walk. Ferry to Sausalito, bus to the beginning of the bridge, walk across, then bus back... More

Stunning by all means to see this bridge. Saw it once in the day and couldn't wait to return and see it at night. Glistering lights stroll the cables for a spectacular scene! Admire it and take pictures. Simply Breathtaking!

This landmark bridge and the history behind it is fascinating. It's an amazing structure that one doesn't quite appreciate it until you're right there. There is a little gift shop at the San Francisco side--and I believe a little cafe, but we didn't visit that. There were restrooms with a VERY long line for the women's side.

I miss the old bridge but the new section is a great thing to look at. while not as well known as the other bridge the lights on the bridge makes it stand out at night. when you look between the two this one reminds me of a little brother or sister wanting to be like the older one. fun... More

We were only in SF for two and a half days waiting to board a cruise back to Aust. We planned eveyrthing before we left home.....we arranged all our tours and stuck to them. This tour was great especially when you don't have a lot of time, it gives you insight into where everything is situated. We hope to get... More
