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.

We booked this trip while we were in San Francisco on a cruise. It was an easy walk to catch the bus. Igor was a great driver we felt very safe on the winding road, very informative, just all around a great tour guide. He knew where to send us to get great food and ice cream. Thanks Igor, you made our trip a great one. We will definitely use Viator in our future plans! Thanks :

The tour company was supposed to pick us up outside our hotel at 8:30 a.m. After waiting until 8:45 a.m., I called them and was put on hold and then transferred to a voicemail. I called back and was transferred to another individual and then instructed to take a cab to their office. I took a cab, caught the tour bus and absolutely loved the tour!!! The Muir Woods are amazing. As for the tour company, although they failed in the beginning, they came trough at the end as I was reimbursed for the cab fare. So despite the hiccup, I would recommend this company as they did remedy the situation.

This was fantastic tour the tour guide was good think his name was randy - knew a lot about the city of San Francisco. Loved going to Muir Woods it was quite peaceful and tranquil. Loved also going to Sausalito. The only thing I found disappointing is there is not enough time in either another hour in each would be great as it would give more time to explore Muir Woods and Sausalito.

Yes, the tour was great. Wished we had more time at Muir Woods but with only half a day, it was good. Would definitely recommend if you only have a short time. Sausalito was pretty.

This was a great tour Our driver, Chablis was experienced, patient, and kind to all. I felt safe with him driving those tricky, scary curves on the way to Muir Woods. It might have been better to spend more time in Muir Woods and leave out Sausalito.
