What people are saying about Sausalito

We had a blast on this cruise! Luckily we thought to bring very warm coats, because it was FREEZING and the wind wanted to blow up over. Unfortunately the Golden Gate Bridge was so fogged in that we could barely see it (it didn't even look red!), but it was sunny and nice with a blue sky over at the Bay Bridge - typical SF weather in the fall. We were thrilled to find a bar inside with warm drinks - Irish coffee and adult (spiked) hot cocoa hit the spot!

With only a half a day to tackle the Napa we booked thus tour . George was amazing - funny , full of knowledge , and passionate about wine . Would recommend !

The tour was great. You should definitely book the tour at 1pm. Less foggy. We even saw dolphins. It was a great experience.

It was such a nice way to get a flavor for the city and decide which spots you wanted to investigate more fully.

great way to see all the areas of the city efficiently
