Golden Gate Bridge Tour

The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most famous places in the world! Join us on our Golden Gate Bridge tour to discover the place that many people said was impossible to build. We will take you through the whole history of the bridge starting from the idea that began it all to the final rivet that was put into place.

On this tour, we’ll show you some great places and tell you fun stories such as:

  • Why is the “Golden” Gate Bridge painted red?
  • The best photo spots for the Golden Gate Bridge
  • A view from underneath the bridge
  • The visionary who got the “impossible” bridge built
  • Scientific exhibits showing how the bridge was built
  • A great view of San Francisco from the bottom of the tower

and much more!
