Our first stop was Golden Gate North Vista Point, when we were going to Muir Woods from San Francisco. This place is on right side, just after crossing Golden Gate Bridge when you are going from San Francisco city to Muir Woods. During first half of the day, you are standing against the light if you want to see Golden Gate. We thought of walking a little on the bridge and went up to the middle of the gate. That way, we could click some of the photographs of the Golden Gate Bridge with direct sunlight on it.

Let's talk a little about parking scenario around Golden Gate North Vista Point. There are about 40-60 parking slots around Golden Gate North Vista Point. Usually they are full, so expect to wait for few minutes to find a parking slot. If you want to avoid parking hassle, because that would be common around all the places you would plan to visit in San Francisco - take a bus tour. 

There are different bus tours available in San Francisco which take you to different places of interest for Tourists. Some of the operators offer hop on hop off, which means you can get down at a place take your time to explore and then monitor next bus coming in that direction which you can take to go toward next place you want to visit & explore. Big Bus is very popular in San Francisco. 

If you plan to opt for a day tour, reach Union Square in San Francisco by 9-9:30am and there would be multiple vendors offering different kinds of day tours around San Francisco. Before going there do some research about these vendors, check reviews and also keep a tentative itinerary in mind. That can save your time choosing right option and on the basis of reviews, you would chose right kind of vendor for yourself. Although we have mentioned Big Bus in this blogpost but that's just an example and we don't endorse and vendor as most of the times I have either used Uber, public transportation or walked.
