    Great Views
    We visited the Presidio of San Francisco on our visit to California. We drove through the area and enjoyed views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay. There is an active military base there and many historical sites. It is worth a visit.

    Beautiful location
    This was an added extra to our bus tour of San Francisco as the driver took a detour through this beautiful national park that used to be a military outpost due to its location and still has many historical building today. There is so much to look at and visit - beaches, picnic areas, trails and exhibitions. Also plenty of eateries. Amazing place to visit!!

    Quiet and interesting area of SF
    Went on a long walk from Fisherman’s Wharf to the Golden Gate Bridge via several iconic sights and hidden gems and walked through the Presidio. It was a very pleasant surprise. The forest was fun and we walked through what used to be army barracks. Well worth the trip if you enjoy walking. Or you can drive there.

    Go explore
    The park is beautiful. There are a variety of trails to walk and explore. The Walt Disney’s Family Museum is also located in the park. There are also two free shuttles and the one will take you down near the Ferry Building.

It is spacious park including a trail for hiking and trekking and has good viewpoints for the Golden Gate. The landscape there is gorgeous and allows beautiful pictures.

Viator package was a disaster and I am sad to write this review but I need to aware others about this. Starting with the fly but sitting me and my husband on separate seats even tho we have designated seats already. The car rental was a nightmare, Dollar Rental Car asked us for $500 deposit, we had to use Alamo who did not ask for a deposit. The hotel was the worse, no hot water , no coffee, no clean towels, the hotel key didnt work and the hotel was under construction. We also got a ticket for the dinner cruise and Viator gave us the wrong time, we got there and the boat was gone. I cried with dissapoinment. I never experienced anything like this before. I will NEVER use Viator again, and defenely NEVER will buy a package deal. Was a mistake!!!

We had an amazing lunch at the out-of-the-way RX Café then drive to the bridge viewing area. It was nice to be cold in August, but we weren’t dressed for it and didn’t stay long.

Very cool place to just walk around. Surrounded by history, views and the water. Parking is a little tough (just like everywhere else in the city). Glad we went.
