What You Can Expect

San Francisco Super Saver: City Tour plus Muir Woods and Sausalito Day Trip

Transamerica Pyramid, San Francisco

This San Francisco Super Saver combines two popular tours into one, making it even easier for you to see some of the Bay Area’s top sights.

Muir Woods and Sausalito Tour:
After pickup from select hotels, depart San Francisco via the Golden Gate Bridge, heading north into Marin County. When you reach Muir Woods National Monument, you have 75 minutes to explore the spectacular forest of ancient coastal redwoods, some of the tallest and oldest trees in the world. Walk along the shady paths to soak up this tranquil environment.

Back in your tour vehicle, head to Sausalito, a small town known for its picturesque waterfront and main street lined with shops and eateries. You have 30 to 45 minutes of leisure time to walk along the water, browse art galleries or take photos before returning to San Francisco for your city tour.

San Francisco Deluxe City Tour:
On board your tour vehicle, traverse the city to see its most popular attractions—it’s a great way to orient yourself with San Francisco and decide what places you might want to return to later on your own. You’ll enjoy views of Alcatraz and the San Francisco waterfront, check out neighborhoods like Chinatown and North Beach, and see the city’s Victorian homes, the Palace of Fine Arts, Fisherman’s Wharf and the Presidio. You’ll also make photo stops of about 20 minutes each at Golden Gate Park, the Golden Gate Bridge, Twin Peaks and, if there is time remaining, Cliff House overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Great tour. Experience Muir Woods and the Redwood trees in all their glory and listen to one of the woods rangers explain in detail about the Redwoods and how they survive. Sonia was our tour guide and she was fantastic and very professional a totally capable and competent guide and driver. Sausalito is a wonderfully refreshing place seaside resort to visit with all the shops and cafes and restaurants to visit. We experienced about 2-3 hrs of this place with Sonia our guide but was so taken with it we returned another day on the local ferry for another day trip. Great place to visit walk around eat /drink etc.

i loved Muir Woods and wish I could've spent more time there. Since I live in a tourist area, Sausalito reminded me too much of one, I just hung out at the edge so I could get good pictures of san Francisco from that location. Sausalito is many restaurants and shops, how much can one eat in such a short time. the driver was great, loved that I could just be driven around and proved information about each location. best thing I did for myself : :

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Our tour was in 2 parts, we had a morning city tour followed by a lunch break and then the Muir Woods Sausalito tour. Tour buses were comfortable and our guides were so professional and friendly. By far, our favorite was Chablis. Ask for him by name if you can. He was fantastic. All the sights were amazing although a bit too crowded for my taste. Probably had to do with the month we were travelling in July.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Well worth it and the driver/ guide was very informative about he area and the history.
