The Golden Gate & Marin tour
Late Summer special ! 20% OFF
Why pick this ride?
This is our favorite local day ride, and one we recommend to first time visitors.
We never get tired of riding across our beloved Golden Gate bridge and the iconic Route 1, and we picked a number of less traveled back roads with little or no traffic to build an epic and memorable day adventure. We will ride by abandoned World War II bunkers, lighthouses at the end of the continent, stop at authentic Western saloons, and feel the serenity of riding under the giant California redwood trees.
Duration: approx. 6 hours
Start & Finish: San Francisco, CA
From the fog city's most notorious hills, we will enjoy stunning vistas, ride over the Golden Gate bridge and into the lesser traveled roads of Marin county, passing by World War II bunkers. We won't stop there and keep rising up above the fog ocean into mountain roads overlooking the great Pacific ocean. It won't be a complete California experience without the local delicacies and conversations at hipster coffee shops, rustic western saloons, and by the water in charming Sausalito.

I felt like I'm the star of a Hollywood set
I was looking for things to do in the few days I had to spend in SF, when I came across Native Moto daily tours. It sounded like a unique day experience I can tell about back home and so I called Jen for more details. Apart from being EXTREMELY nice, interesting and fun people, the riding experience itself was AWESOME. I chose to rent a 1200cc Harley Davidson sportster. Jen and Saf gave me a complete sense of safety, having me riding in between their formation. The scenery road was beautiful and we even stopped at some movie-like biker's places along the way, full other Harley's (and sport cars). At parts, I felt like I'm the star of a Hollywood set. Would definitely recommend it to other SF visitors as a different way to tour SF, and will probably contact Native Moto again some day in the future for another trip :)
Being a moto rider back home, I couldn't imagine exploring San Francisco's backroads in a tour bus. Jen & Saf were super friendly and professional. They helped us rent our bike (a GS1200) and took us around some stunning hills and twisties just 30min outside of town. Most people visiting SF miss out on what's just beyond the Golden Gate bridge. Highly recommend!
