The photos I got from this tour speaks everything about the tour. As a photo hobbyist, having Mike take you to the north of the bridge is really an advantage. He knows all the photogenic scenes in the area as he has worked a lot documenting this gem. All in one day: rolling hills and cows, a tasty sandwich, sea elephants lazing around, hikes along the seashore, Eric Pryds, 15 cats and a dog, and stories of elks, coyotes and mountain lions. We didn't get to see the elks nor the coyotes and mountain lions (fortunately). It would have cool to shoot a silhouette of the elks and their antlers with the warm orange sunset as the backdrop. This tour makes me want to plan for a longer trip to the US and explore the west coast. Thank you to Mike for bringing me on this tour.
I was looking for an unusual tour of San Francisco and this was just perfect. You won't really get stomped by the endless stairs because you're feasted with incredible view. Thanks to June who was willing to start out early in the morning!
I took this tour as I've tried to capture the view of Golden Gate from various angles. Marin Headlands definitely gives you the best view, especially during the sunset and an hour after. The tour lets you go down to the beach from the Marin vista point by a half hour walking trail. Grant is a terrific guide, knowledgeable about the area. I would recommend this tour to photographers who wants to get a predominant view of the bridge.
Russel is definitely someone extremely knowledgeable about the street art scenes. Not only does he tell you who made the art but also he gives unique insights on how SFO developed socially through street art. He's willing to go out of his usual routes by request which I find was a plus point. I recommend this tour to those who wants to know the not-so-touristy side of SFO.
