Took the family of four...2 adults, 13yo, 11yo and had a BLAST...definitely not something any of us will forget. Saw the views from around the bridge as well but nothing compares to being on the bridge and seeing everything from that height.

Such a cool experience. Literally walked up and fortunately they had a spot for us in the next tour. Very friendly staff and accommodating. The guide (Sarah) was very knowledgeable about the bridge, history and the area. She provided excellent discussion points and interesting tidbits on the trip. Even those afraid of heights will not have an issue (there are hand rails, midrails and a tethered harness for safety). You are delivered from the concessionaire lot to the Visitor Center, a brief orientation and then you walk the entire length of the bridge. It's shaded and cool underneath - though the wind may blow (watch your hats). Plenty of stops along the way and incredible views. Bus picks you up on the other side, gives you some water and brings you back to the shop - all in all, about an hour.

Scary as all get out at the start! Even though you know you cannot fall it is quite the experience! The most amazing views from over 800 feet above the river. Staff was great and friendly. Highly recommend this walk>

This was awesome! We had a blast doing this walk. We had a bigger group and it was super windy and I still felt like I could hear our guide Kalilah very well. She was an awesome guide and had a lot of knowledge about the bridge and surrounding area. She answered everyone’s questions and provided us with plenty of time to stop, take pictures, and enjoy the amazing views. I never felt like I was being rushed and this is definitely worth every penny. This is a must do for everyone!

We debated about this activity or horseback riding, but you can go horseback riding just about anywhere. I am a little scared of heights, but so glad we did the Bridge Walk. I felt very safe because I was harnessed in. Also I bought a $5 lanyard for my phone. They did not insist on it, but who wants to drop their phone and never see it again? Just make sure all the phone straps don’t cover any part of the camera lens. Our guide Kailie was informative and interesting. She gave us a lot of information and let us sit and dangle our legs over the edge, which I did. Amazing views, a little noisy because of traffic overhead and this day was windy, but I highly recommend this activity. Cost about the same as horseback riding, but so cool! I think there were about 8 or 10 people in our group and we were half way in line, so we could here Kailie just fine. She did take 2 photos of us and texted them to us later. It did not take 3 hours, but well worth the price. I was ready to get off the bridge by the time we made it to the other side. When our guide told us how workers can climb a ladder built inside the steel columns, I felt queasy just thinking about that, but besides that time, I felt excited. There are railings along the side you can hold onto and of course your harness feels safe. It was a little weird when the cable of the line went over transition sections where it would tug a little, but you get used to that after the first time.
