  • See giant Redwood trees towering above you
Full description
Cross the Golden Gate Bridge, and after you motor through the “Rainbow Tunnels” on Hwy. 101, Marin’s unique topography comes into view. Tidal flats along the bay segue into gently undulating hills as they rise to meet Mt. Tamalpais, Marin’s 2,600-foot landmark.

As your tour ascends Mt. Tam, breathtaking views abound at every turn. Descending into the valley toward Muir Woods, you will see a landscape that hasn’t changed since its original inhabitants, the Coast Miwok Indians, lived here centuries ago.

You will have 1 hour 15 minutes to spend in Muir Woods, the most time offered on any sightseeing tour program. There will be ample time to stroll the Nature Trail along picturesque Redwood Creek, and through Cathedral and Bohemian Groves, filled with 500 to 800-year-old redwoods. Be sure to stop at the Visitors Center and Gift Shop.

The next stop on your tour is beautiful Sausalito, a Mediterranean-like community with elegant hillside homes facing the bay and a unique colony of floating homes moored along the waterfront. You will have time to stroll Downtown Sausalito, a National Historic Landmark District offering many fine shops, galleries, and restaurants.

If a 1 hour stop in Sausalito isn’t enough for you, you can extend your stay by picking up a 4-hour rental optional package in this product in Sausalito and returning to San Francisco at your leisure. You’ll be allowed to return the bike in Sausalito or Fisherman's Wharf stores.

Well, it all starts with the weather, which was fabulous that morning. Cool and warmed up fairly quick. The bus guide was informative, but honestly, just being able to explore the Muir Woods was astonishing. The paths were great. Great accommodations for before and after the hike. Loved it and next time, would probably just drive there myself and take the longer trails.

Great tour!

I would highly recommend this tour. Customer service was great from start to finish. We loved Josh our tour guide. Muir Woods is beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing. Great place to unplug for a minute. Make sure you get the Tyler Florence grilled cheese at the Muir Woods Cafe. Best EVER!
