What You Can Expect

Muir Woods and Sausalito Tour plus Bay Cruise

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco

First, this enthralling excursion takes you across the Golden Gate Bridge to stop for a view of San Francisco from Vista Point, then through the coastal mountains to the Bay Area's popular Muir Woods. 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.

The tour then 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.

In addition, you'll enjoy an hour of breathtaking sightseeing on the Golden Gate Bay Cruise. The fully narrated cruise on San Francisco Bay takes you under the Golden Gate Bridge (weather permitting) for close-up views of Alcatraz Island, the San Francisco waterfront and the California sea lions.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

The Muir Woods Tour was excellent...especially our tour guide Troy. Nice bus, a fair amount of time to explore Muir Woods and Sausolito. But I was signed up for the Bay Tour as well and I thought it went directly from Sausolito to San Fran. Instead I went back to the downtown San Fran hub and then to the Bay Tour. I ended up giving my ticket away to someone as I wasn't sure I'd be back in time for a meeting at my conference. This tour was advertised as one package and it doesn't make sense to have you come all the way back to San Fran. I was confused once I got on the tour and was on the bus to the hub before I realized I could have taken the ferry back. You need to add more detail about how the Bay Cruise fits in.

Really loved this tour. The trees were amazing. The driver was friendly. The road to Muir Woods is very curvy so did get a little car sick on the shuttle.

Our tour guide/driver, Igor, was great! Informative and funny, made the tour even more interesting! The sights were awesome and amazing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

I really enjoyed the walk in the Muir Woods and seeing the giant redwoods. It was very peaceful, quiet, and absolutely beautiful. I wish they would skip the Sausalito part of the tour and give you more time to walk in the Muir Woods. The Sausalito part of the tour is just shopping and very expensive. We didn't get to stop to take pictures of the Golden Gate like we were told we would because 5 people on our tour were very late on our Sausalito stop. It really wasn't a tour but more of a shuttle but worth the price.

The tour was wonderful. We loved Muir Woods but would have liked more time in Sausalito. The bus driver/tour guide was outstanding.

The Muir Woods tour got us away from the city, nice ride along the way, Sausalito was more of a stop off, not a lot to see, The Bay Cruise was nice, wear a coat,hat, gloves and scarf, we went in March.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

Muir Woods was a fabulous experience not just for the redwoods but also the peace and quiet compared to downtown. Sausalito was a not to be missed quaint town.

The driver / guide was a laid back fabulous guy called Troy, knowledgeable, humorous and friendly.

Recommended to all.
