What you'll do

Sausalito is a pretty and historic village on San Francisco Bay and nearby Fort Baker offers easy-going trails that provide spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco skyline and the scenic Marin Headlands. We start with an exploration of Sausalito's colorful houseboat community, whose roots go back to the the artistic Beat movement of the 1940 and '50s and free-spirited 1960s and '70s hippy scene. We then shuttle a short distance to Fort Baker, in the heart of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, where you enjoy a leisurely shoreline walk in a beautiful setting at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge. Native birds, plants, trees and animals abound in this unspoiled natural setting and the bay views are outstanding. I am a San Francisco native, longtime Marin resident and certified guide in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. I bring local insight, expertise and stories to this scenic and fascinating location in the Marin Headlands.

I'm a SF native, longtime Marin County local and the co-founder of a nature walking tour company, Coastal Walkers. I'm passionate about life in the SF Bay area and believe the best way to connect with it is on foot. I have decades of experience in the active travel world and am a licensed guide in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area . I've been leading walks for Airbnb Experiences guests for over three years, since the beginning of the program.

Ben was a great tour guide for the houseboat community. Besides it being a very small group of 2, he gave my husband and I a very personalized experience, including a just-right hike and personal stories from his life in Marin County. We highly recommend Ben and this tour!
