What you'll do

Join a local guide for a scenic, history-rich walk on San Francisco Bay. Enjoy the beauty of the parklands just outside Sausalito in the Marin Headlands. We meet at the Sausalito Chamber of Commerce next to the ferry landing and shuttle to Fort Baker to enjoy views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island, San Francisco, Alcatraz and San Francisco Bay in the headlands above Horseshoe Cove. We make a gradual ascent on a car-free path to a sensational overlook at Battery Spencer high above the bridge to enjoy commanding views of the Golden Gate Bridge. After exploring the overlook, we head back to bridge level, where you can choose to walk on-your-own across the Golden Gate Bridge (45 minutes, 1.7 miles) back to San Francisco or continue on to Fort Baker. If you choose not to walk the bridge, we conclude our walk back in Sausalito.

Note: If the walk is not on the calendar for the date you want or fully booked, please contact me and we might be able to accommodate you. This walk is also ideal for corporate team building outings!

Please note: If you prefer to drive to Sausalito, I will meet you at the entrance to the Bay Area Discovery Museum in Fort Baker. Plenty of free parking available in a large outdoor lot at the museum.

Ben was a wonderful host, full of information about the area. The walking tour took us places with excellent views of the Golden Gate bridge and with the history and nature surrounding it. It was really a fantastic day.

It was a great hike it was just me and Ben the day of the hike. Ben made me feel really comfortable and it was a lot of fun and he provided lots of knowledge on his end! Definitely a must when you visit SF, so close to the Golden Gate Bridge and the walk after was the great way to end it!!

Hikinkg with Greg, Emily and Robert trough the Redwoods (we spontaneously chose this route as the fog over the bay and marine area became really strong early in the morning) was not only a amazing but also magical experience. I feel blessed for having been part of this. Thank you so much Greg!

I’m beyond grateful for this amazing experience . I was actually the only one on the trip and bens partner , Craig was the most genuine host I could have ever asked for As a solo female traveler, I cannot express how comfortable and welcomed I felt by this experience . The trial I went on was absolutely breath taking .its a moment in my life I will never forget . Not to mention , he was a phenomenal photographer and truly cared about the value he was providing with photos since I needed them for my social media platform Honestly this was the highlight of my trip . Not to mention , I walked across the Golden Gate Bridge and loved it so much !!!

Truly a wonderful experience that I couldn't have done on my own! I was looking for a way to enjoy the San Francisco Bay area but without all the crowds.... this tour fit the bill. Sausalito is full of charm, history and the tour took you to fantastic look out points and dropped you down along the Marin Headlands. The colors of the franciscan rocks were like nothing I had ever seen before. The walk wasn't strenuous but it was uphill. A friend who has a bad back, opted to spend the afternoon in Sausalito while I took the tour and she had a marvelous time. We met up after the tour and were both excited to share what we had experienced. I can't wait to come back to San Francisco and book again!!
