Full description
Wander through the ancient groves of coastal redwoods in Muir Woods National Monument and walk along the quaint sidewalks of Downtown Sausalito on this relaxed half-day tour. Muir Woods National Monument is an old-growth redwood forest located about 30 minutes from downtown San Francisco, just over the Golden Gate Bridge. After a pick-up from a central San Francisco hotel, your group will head up north over the bridge and into the Marin Headlands. If the fog is clear, you might get a chance to stop and take some pictures of the bridge up close.

When you arrive in Muir Woods, you will have 1.5 hours to roam through this living museum where you can get a glimpse of the towering trees that used to dominate the west coast from Santa Barbara to Washington.

After exploring Muir Woods, hop back on the vehicle for a quick ride over to Sausalito, California. Here get a 15-20 minute narrated tour through the beautiful seaside Mediterranean-style town before departing on the next leg of your journey: a ferry ride across the San Francisco Bay. Choose your ferry return time to allow room for lunch at one of Sausalito's lovely restaurants or cafes, or head back across the bay to enjoy the rest of your day in San Francisco.

In the evening, head to Alcatraz Island to enjoy an exclusive night tour where you will have access to areas of the island that aren't open during the day.

As apart of this package tour, you'll also receivce entry to the Aquarium by the Bay. Located in Fisherman's Wharf, the aquarium houses over 2,000 marine animals. Visit at any time during your San Francisco trip. Redeem your tickets at the Aquarium and visit at your leisure.

Fantastic tour! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and outgoing! The fog was very thick when we crossed the Golden Gate Bridge. The Muir Woods are awesome, a must visit. Alcatraz Night tour was the highlight of the day - the National Park Service opens and closes the cell doors so you can hear the sounds of Alcatraz!!

Very complete day

Muir Woods: they quote you for transport very early (in our case 7.15h), and when we arrived at the park the cafeteria had not yet opened, so we spent many hours fasting. For the all very good. Be careful with the distances, because in our case we made a slightly long route and we came just to return to the meeting point in 1h30min and we had to run. Sausalito: it is a beautiful town, and good views of San Francisco. We enjoyed lunch on a terrace with a great time. Alcatraz: a very interesting visit. It is essential to hire a tour or buy the ticket as they usually sell out. Having done good weather during the day, on the ferry if you get on top and on the island of Alcatraz it is windy and cold. To get the tickets they ask for your passport, it is important not to forget to take it as well as the printed coupon if, as was my case, you do not have internet in the USA.
