“Amalfi meets the USA in Sausalito”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

On a beautiful day in San Francisco, we took the Big Bus tour. I always take them on our first day in a major city... This is my fifth.. Always Big Bus, they are well organized.
Anyway, after a run over the Golden Gate bridge, which we were lucky to see almost in totality, we took the shuttle down to Sausalito.
There it was so hot, and so beautiful.. I was back in Amalfi... Especially with two tables of italian tourists sitting at the tables next to ours...
You have AMAZING view of San Francisco, and we were licky to be there while the America's cup trials were going on, beautiful sights.
This is a must for all if the weather cooperates....

“Beautiful when not foggy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

The bay is very pretty and has spectacular views, but it can get foggy quite often and the views can be obscured. Try to go on a day when it's not so foggy so you can truly enjoy it!

“What a wonderful world......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

I am a native SFan. I love to go back and see the bay. Wherever, whenever. It does not matter. The city is beautiful, and the views of the bay from wherever are always great. If you are a fan of sun and heat, well, this is not the place for you. But if you enjoy mild temperatures and sun and gorgeous views and a very international climate, then by all means go here.

“What a day to be on the bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

On a relatively sunny day, we decided to take a ferry to Sausalito. We were lucky enough to see the America's Cup competitors practicing! The Oracle boat, with an appropriate entourage for Larry Ellison, passed by us several times, as did the Emirates boat. Lots of fun, sun, great photographs and a little bit of sunburn made a terrific experience. If you are coming home from Sausalito in the afternoon in the summer, queue up early for the return ferry or you might not make it, as there is quite a crowd!

“What a view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

The view of the bay from any vantage point will take your breath away--absolutely gorgeous. Fisherman's Wharf is the best so much to see, so many places to eat, and too many goodies to buy. If you are really adventurous take a boat ride on the bay --day or night both fabulous.Try one of the private boats along the pier for a quick hour tour for less than $20. + you can BYOB too.
