Description

What more is there to say?

It’s an international symbol of San Francisco, a mind-blowing feat of engineering, and one of the most-photographed places in the entire world. The iconic Golden Gate Bridge has captivated locals and tourists alike since it opened in 1937. It was the world’s longest and tallest suspension bridge at its opening, and almost a century later, remains one of the most impressive structures ever built by humans.

Immerse yourself in the story of the Golden Gate, featuring soaring architectural design, stunning engineering, terrifying geology, ripping currents and tides, famous fog, sailboats, ships, marine mammals, fearless ironworkers, naysayers, conservative bankers — oh, and an absolutely breathtaking view. Experience a true wonder of the world — with guides who can tell you how it all happened.
