The 49 mile scenic tour around the San Francisco Bay Area is a wonderful,thing. So are marathons! I am glad it is there, but would never drive it myself any more than I would run a marathon! If you do choose to drive this 'marathon' you need to be prepared for the consequences. First, your passengers will see much more... More

We had a beautiful drive by a limo service that we used. Took us over the bridge and showed us all the sites. Took us to the top to see the bridge. It was very beautiful view. Worth the money and the trip over. Went shopping in Sausalito and bought souvenirs. Had coffee had starbucks.

Crossed another thing off the bucket list! took a few days to do this drive as we couldn't stop stopping to take pics! we suited ourselves where we wanted to stop and stay a night or 2. So worth the visit. Beautiful part of the world.

You'll cover all the cities best spots with this extensive drive throughout the city. Good way to see it all if you are rushed for time.
