Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Alcatraz Tour plus Muir Woods, Giant Redwoods and Sausalito Day Trip

Giant Redwoods, California

This tour is likely to sell out! The Alcatraz daily ticket allotment regularly fills up weeks in advance, so book early to avoid disappointment.
Muir Woods and Sausalito (included with both tour options):
Cross the Golden Gate Bridge and travel north to Muir Woods National Monument for your exploration of the giant coastal redwood trees. This old-growth forest is home to some of the planet’s oldest and tallest trees, which you can admire in all their glory as you walk along shady paths.

Then head to Sausalito, a picturesque small town just north of the Golden Gate Bridge that sits between the Marin Headlands and San Francisco Bay. You have leisure time here to walk along the waterfront, maybe purchase a snack (own expense) or perhaps shop in the galleries and boutiques.

Alcatraz admission:
You’ll board the ferry to Alcatraz at Pier 33 on the Embarcadero in San Francisco. Enjoy the scenic ride across San Francisco Bay to Alcatraz Island, and disembark to start your independent tour of this island prison. Put on your provided headset to listen to the award-winning audio tour, “Doing Time,” and learn about notorious criminals like Al Capone who were incarcerated here. Hear about escape attempts from 'The Rock,' and listen to commentary from former inmates and staff.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2018

The 5 stars is for the Alcatraz tour it was fantastic highly recommend it to anyone. The Bus trip to the Giant Redwoods was a bit boring, we were expecting more and the Sausalito part was a fizzer not worth the petrol. Would have like more time at Alcatraz and not be stressed about being back by 1pm.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2018

The Alcatraz part of this tour was 10 stars. Unfortunately the company running the tour cancelled the second half at the last minute due to lack of numbers. Although they offered to let me go the next morning that meant that I lost a day and missed seeing some things I wanted to

We did Alcatraz in the morning and Muir Woods in the afternoon. A couple of hours at Alcatraz was plenty of time to see stuff. The drive to Muir woods was beautiful and we enjoyed the stop in Sausalito. The bus drivers were friendly and knowledgeable. The buses were clean and comfortable. The tours started and ended on time. This package exceeded my expectations.

We did the Alcatraz tour in the morning, and although it was a rainy day, the experience was amazing. The driver took us to the pier where the ferry departs to Alcatraz island in time and doing the Audio Tour in the island was very interesting. After we were back from this portion of the tour, the driver took us back to the Union Square office where we change to another bus and went to the Muir Woods, which was another awesome experience. Those giant trees, the smell of the forest after the rain, you could breath peace in there. It is a pretty place to spend the afternoon and walk through the trails. Last the driver took us to Sausalito, where we spend about 45 minutes. Is very nice small town and we would rather have spend more time there, but it was fine, although you could stay and grab a ferry from there to cross the bay. While going to the places the driver explained a lot of things about San Francisco, and many other subjects.
Overall it was a very good tour and we will recommend it.
