San Francisco: Muir Woods, Sausalito, and Wine Country Tour

1. San Francisco: Muir Woods, Sausalito, and Wine Country Tour

Your day starts with a scenic drive over the Golden Gate Bridge to an isolated canyon filled with ancient coastal redwood trees. Arrive at Muir Woods National Monument and immerse yourself in the forest's peaceful tranquility. Stroll through the cool, moist air, as you admire 1000-year-old trees towering 260 feet tall. As you wander in and out of Mother Nature's redwood alleyways, experience the awe and mystery of the forest surrounded by Northern California’s signature fog. Next, enjoy a 1-hour lunch break in Sausalito, the seaside Mediterranean-style village across the San Francisco Bay. Sausalito is famous for its sweeping views, timeless sophistication, local boutiques, and cafes, and your tour guide will offer a list of popular local eateries for you to grab a bite to eat. Don’t forget to snap a few panoramic shots of the picturesque San Francisco skyline in the distance before the tour continues. After lunch, head north into the vine-covered hillsides of the world-famous Wine Country. During your venture, visit 2 local wineries for wine tasting sessions and an exclusive estate tour. Experience the inner workings of the wineries and their family history in Napa and Sonoma Valley, as an expert wine host walks you through the fermentation process, barrel aging, bottling, and of course tastings of some award-winning varietals. At each winery, enjoy up to 3-5 tastings of their signature blends. At the end of an exciting and unforgettable day, sit back, relax, and enjoy the scenic drive back over the Golden Gate Bridge and into San Francisco as the sun slowly starts to set into the Pacific Ocean. You’ll be back in San Francisco before dinner time so be ready to head out for a night on the town.

Top! Punctual when we were picked up from the hotel Tour guide Fred was very entertaining and informative - all his tips were very helpful muirwood was very impressive - 90 minutes are very tight if you do the big round + bus change in Sausolito worked perfectly Tip: The Spinnaker - expensive but great View of SF Wine tasting - small bus - party music ;) 1st stop informative - Richard explained the wines very well 2nd stop - nice view - good wines In summary: highly recommended

The activity was pretty well overall. There was a huge accident on our way to Sausalito and took us a long time to get there. We could not enjoy Sausalito. The wine country tour was pretty nice, consider including some snacks or warn passengers about the fact that the way back to the city takes more than one hour.

Muir Woods is a great place to visit and hike! Absolutely beautiful! Grady our first driver was really informative! 1/2 day wine tour was excellent! Marco kept us entertained with great music there and back. Only had 30 min in Sausalito. Really quick bite luckily could get seated and snack before next bus!

Grady was an amazing hist and driver. Loved all of the history along the way. Highly recommend
