Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco


San Francisco Holidays

Cycle the iconic Golden Gate Bridge

San Francisco holidays are always iconic; from cycling over the famed Golden Gate Bridge and exploring the colourful, hilly neighbourhoods to sipping a glass of delicious wine in Napa Valley.

Home to some of North America's great icons, such as the Golden Gate Bridge and eerie Alcatraz, there’s plenty to explore here. One of the best ways to see the city’s sights is with a Hop on Hop off bus tour; book your tickets, sit back and enjoy a whole new perspective of this urban paradise. Relax in the Golden Gate Park before heading to Pier 39 at Fisherman's Wharf to sample tasty, fresh seafood while watching the sea lions sunbathe and listening to their distinctive call. Ride historic cable cars, stopping off to see the 'crookedest' street in the world; Lombard Street and finish your day with an indulgent ice-cream sundae from Ghirardelhi Square.

Once you’ve relished what San Francisco has to offer, hire a car and explore more of California or why not venture to neighbouring state Nevada for breathtaking shows, shopping and sights of the Las Vegas strip. Swap the city haze for the serene sands of Hawaii and hop from Oahu to Kauai to tailor make your very own slice of paradise.

Top Tips from our Experts

"After you have cycled the Golden Gate Bridge, continue onto Sausalito for lunch on the waterfront; it's a really pretty little town and if you don't fancy cycling back the way you came, hop on the ferry to get you across to Fisherman's Wharf."
