Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Muir Woods, Giant Redwoods and Sausalito Half-Day Trip

San Francisco from Sausalito

Muir Woods National Monument is a must-see destination on any visit to the San Francisco Bay Area. Just a short drive across the Golden Gate Bridge, the protected nature reserve is home to one of the world’s last remaining coastal redwood forests. 

Choose from a morning or afternoon departure, and enjoy pickup at your San Francisco hotel. Stop at a vista point for a fantastic perspective of the Golden Gate and Alcatraz, and wind through the rolling emerald hills of the Marin Headlands to arrive at Muir Woods. Stroll along forest paths surrounded by the gigantic redwood trees, some of which stretch as high as 250 feet (76 meters) and date back nearly 800 years. 

After 75 minutes at Muir Woods, take a short drive to the artistic bayside village of Sausalito. Capture wonderful photos of the San Francisco skyline during a stroll along the waterfront, pop in to one of the many art galleries and grab a cappuccino or ice cream at a local café (own expense).

Your 4-hour tour concludes with drop-off back at your San Francisco hotel.

My cousin and I had a very memorable experience with this tour. Our driver/tour guide Randy was very accomodating and a real gentleman. My cousin had a back ache and she refused to go inside Muir Woods National Park. Randy saw us waiting outside the park, he got a wheelchair and took my cousin inside the park to approximately 3 bridges marker. He took pictures for my cousin and explained the trees inside the park. My cousin was so happy and thankful for what Randy did.

Definitely, definitely would recommend! It's at the top of our list of things to do again when we go back to San Francisco. In all, you get about an hour at the redwoods and an hour or so at Sausalito. We opted to take the ferry back from Sausalito only 10 per adult, so we spent more time there. But I would willingly spend a day at both places.
