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 only 30 minutes from downtown San Francisco over the Golden Gate Bridge. After a pick-up from a central San Francisco hotel, head 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, take an hour and a half to roam through this ‘living museum’ where you can glimpse the towering trees that used to dominate the west coast from Santa Barbara to Washington. After exploring Muir Woods, hop back in the coach for a quick ride over to Sausalito. Enjoy a 15-20 minute, narrated in-coach tour through the beautiful seaside Mediterranean-style town, and then some free time to walk around! After about 45 minutes in Sausalito, hop back in the coach for a trip back across the Golden Gate Bridge, or opt for a ferry ride back to San Francisco. You'll be dropped back off at your pick-up point. This half-day tour is a great way to see all the highlights of the northern San Francisco Bay in a limited amount of time.

    The tour was amazing!! The views along the way are beautiful, and the park itself is incredible. It has been one of the most beautiful and magical places I’ve ever been to. You can feel the energy of all the nature flowing through you. Would definitely recommend taking the tour in the morning, since the park is not crowded at all. Sausalito was beautiful as well. Small town with cute shops and restaurants. Kate (tour guide and driver) was super friendly, fun, informative and attentive! We specially loved the location related fun facts she told us along the way. She was awesome . Over all, a great experience. Would completely recommend taking this half day tour!

    The tour was great! It was the perfect way to see some different places without having to venture out on my own. I would have loved more time in both Muir Woods and Sausalito, but I knew what I was signing up for. I really enjoyed the introduction to both places and hope to visit them at greater length sometime soon. Erin was a great guide. She was enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and the time flew by!

    Phil was our tour guide and he did an excellent job of leading us! The drive was scenic and the activities were great. The Muir Woods are a definite must-see! I highly recommend this tour for anyone considering it! The road is very winding so try to sit by a window if you get car-sick (like me).
