What You Can Expect

San Francisco Super Saver: Muir Woods and Wine Country Tour

Enjoy wine tasting at three California wineries

Muir Woods National Monument tour:
Hotel pickup in San Francisco starts early for the drive north across the Golden Gate Bridge, meaning you’ll reach Muir Woods before many other tours arrive. On your way out of the city, see the Palace of Fine Arts and the Presidio.

Muir Woods National Monument is home to a pristine forest of California coastal redwoods, which are some of the planet’s tallest and oldest trees with heights that can reach 250 feet (76 meters). You have about one hour here to wander through the grove of trees with your guide, who will tell you about the local vegetation and wildlife along the nature trail while you walk over mossy streams. Then return to the tour vehicle for the drive further north into wine country.

Wine country tour:
When you reach your first winery in Sonoma County’s Carneros region, you can explore the grounds, enjoy photo ops of the vineyard and sample a variety of wines in a welcoming atmosphere. You then have an hour of free time in the town of Sonoma to buy lunch on the plaza (own expense), shop in the boutiques or perhaps take in another wine sample at one of the tasting rooms on the square (tastings during free time are at your own expense).

Afterward, continue your tour to your second and third wineries in Sonoma County or Napa County for more tastings. Total time at each winery is about one hour, and you’ll have the chance to taste five to 10 wines of different varietals, from white to red to sparkling. Tasting fees are included, and you may purchase bottles to take home, if you wish. See below for a sample of wineries you may visit.

Your day trip ends with the drive back across the Golden Gate Bridge. Admire views of the vast Pacific and the rugged coastline before hotel drop-off.

We had a great time on this tour! Our guide was friendly and helpful. The scenery was beautiful and the drive was relaxing. We were able to attend several wineries and enjoy tastings at each. We ate lunch in Sonoma and it was beautiful. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to get out of the city for a day without renting a car.

Roman was a fantastic tour guide for the Muir Woods and Wine Country Tour. Very entertaining and knew how to run a tight ship so that everyone was back to the bus at the designated times -- No public shamings! Yay! After the tour, he took us to a great place to view the Golden Gate Bridge and the entire city. Also was kind enough to drop us at North Beach where we had planned to go that evening vs. back to our hotel. Highly Recommended!

Muir Woods was breathtaking and wine country was so much fun. Our tour guide, Frank, was full of fun facts and CA history. I liked that we got to explore Muir Woods on our own and had private group tastings at each of the three vineyards. Some quick stops but no other way to fit it all in!
