What You Can Expect

Muir Woods, Giant Redwoods and Sausalito Half-Day Trip

San Francisco from Sausalito

After crossing the impressive Golden Gate Bridge, you'll stop for a view of San Francisco from Vista Point before driving through the coastal mountains to Muir Woods (admission included). This national monument is the site of a virgin forest of California Coast redwood trees, among the oldest and tallest on earth. Take the opportunity to roam through an ancient forest of giant redwood trees on your 75-minute visit of Muir Woods.

This morning or afternoon tour also takes you to Sausalito, a quaint Mediterranean-style seaside village. Stroll along the waterfront, shop or take photos in this picturesque artists' colony nestled on the northern shores of San Francisco Bay.

On Day 1, we landed at the airport in the morning and by the afternoon we were on our first excursions. We went to Muir Woods 52 per person. If you saw the last Planet of the Apes movie, this looks like where Cesar and the rest of the Apes went to live and hide out. We also went to Sausalito. This city is across the Bay and said to be one of the richest cities in California where the homes start at 5 million..yes, 5 million.

Trip was everything we hoped it would be. We had never seen redwoods up close and personal before. Our stop at Golden Gate Bridge provided for excellent pictures. We enjoyed a nice lunch in Sausalito.

Wonderful trip! Our guide was very interesting, and I was so glad we didn't try to drive there ourselves.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Beautiful drive up to Muir Woods and awesome scenic huge redwoods at Muir Woods. Our driver Aaron was very informative and humorous and made an unscheduled trip up the side of some steep hills, so we could get a fantastic view and take pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge.
