What You Can Expect

Muir Woods and Sausalito Tour plus Bay Cruise

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco

Muir Woods National Monument and the village of Sausalito are two of the most popular things to do north of San Francisco. This convenient tour from the city makes it easy to check off both from your list, plus take a San Francisco Bay cruise for even more photo ops.

Your morning starts with pickup from centrally located hotels by air-conditioned bus for the drive across the Golden Gate Bridge, where you’ll stop to take in views from Vista Point on your way to Muir Woods. You have about 75 minutes here to walk along paths through the forest of old-growth coastal redwoods, known for being some of the oldest and tallest trees in the world.

Then head to Sausalito, a picturesque small town nestled between the Marin Headlands and San Francisco Bay on the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge. Take a walk on the waterfront, grab a snack (own expense) or check out the art galleries and shops before boarding your 1-hour San Francisco Bay cruise.

Your narrated cruise takes you underneath the bridge (weather permitting) and past Alcatraz Island. Enjoy views of the city skyline and the local sea lions, and then end your tour with hotel drop-off in San Francisco.

Our tour guide, Chabli, was very nice and informative - and humorous. The Muir Woods were great! So beautiful and serene! Sausalito is a lovely community! The Bay Cruise was very nice as well. The only complaint we may have is that the bus was noisy - I think the a.c. may have been going out on it - - and that was distracting. But the tour itself was great.

Awesome tour for the value! Tour guide Chablis was knowledgable and funny! The Bay Cruise option was just perfect, you are allowed to use that any day, so we went the next day after Muir woods, we went at sunset and it was so nice. Definitely recommend this tour. One tip: Do not be late to your bus, when they give a time to be back at the bus: be back at the bus! We did not get left behind, but some people did not make it back. All in all, great tour and the buses are very nice.

The your was excellent. Antonio, the tour guide was excellent and gave us enough time in each place to be able to see everything. He was very informative and very engaging and energetic. He had the group happy and engaging. I highly recommend this tour to everybody. However, another driver whose name we could not get who took us to the hotels at the end of the tour was very inappropriate and highly rude asking questions about the ethnic background of the passengers and making inappropriate comments. The company should educate him in professional ethics.
