Took the hour tour around the bay, nice view of everything. Windy but not cold. Lots of boats to see on the water.

“Mist is amazing”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

I love the feel of the bay, slight chill in the air, beautiful views, changing scenery and the mysterious mist make for amazing photos. I could sit here for hours watching the time go by..

“Beautiful Bay”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Our hotel was right on the water so I saw it every morning plus going out on the water itself on a bridge to bridge cruise definitely a highlight of the trip. Going around Alcatraz was a lot of fun. I was surprised at the number of buildings with no roof out there now though not sure if they caught fire or what but the bay itself was beautiful.

You could see lots of people kite surfing out on the waters of the bay. There was supposed to be Americas Cup races going on now in the city and we saw a few things relating to this including Larry Ellisons huge yacht at one of the piers but not any of the Americas Cup boats themselves

“Amalfi meets the USA in Sausalito”
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....
