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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

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.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

Awesome tour! Our driver, Greg, obviously enjoys his job! He was a wealth of information about the area, and the forest. Muir Woods was beautiful! Very peaceful place. Would definitely recommend it to anyone

The bus driver made this tour memorable. He gave us lots of information, and had a great sense of humor. The woods were unbelievable ..... My only disappointment was the bay cruise. Neither of us could hear the tape, and we were sitting directly in front of the speaker, very disappointing.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2016

Loved it. The driver, an entertaining Russian man, was a safe and very capable driver. He appeared to enjoy his job, and we, the tourists, were not nuisances.
Thoroughly recommend this tour.

Tour was excellent and worth the trip. Our guide, Erin, was entertaining and informative. His narration of the history of the area and the sights was helpful and enjoyable. The woods tour itself was beautiful - so peaceful, serene and informative. Amazing to be among nature in all her glory. Stop at Sausilito was nice but could have been just a little bit longer. Bay cruise was topped off this fabulous excursion. I would definitely recommend this tour.
