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.

This trip was incredible. The Muir Woods are so majestic and serene. Beautiful drive to get there. Loved Sausalito as well.

Tour guide was a lot of fun, very personable and knowledgeable about the area. Sausalito I could have done without, nothing much for young folks there, but overall a great experience.

Manny was our driver and guide. He was very interesting and explained many items on our way over and back from Muir woods. Take the morning tour as it does get crowded later in the day.

The tour was really worth the time and money. Our driver was very attentive, funny and accommodating! Would have been nice to spend a little more time in the woods I think our group will surely go back. Highly recommend.
