What You Can Expect

Muir Woods, Giant Redwoods, and Sausalito Half-Day Trip

Sausalito, California
© TripAdvisor

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. 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 at Union Square in San Francisco or choose the option of taking the ferry back to San Francisco from Sausalito.

Phenomenal tour. It was great touring both Muir Woods and Sausalito. If only we had more in Sausalito.

My fiance I wanted to have the redwoods experience this time around in San Francisco and get some time in nature. The Muir Woods/Sausalito bus tour was a good experience. Jo the tour guide was knowledgeable host and a courteous driver while driving the streets and winding roads during the tour. Not alot of time spent at either location, but enough to satisfy your sense of adventure and being at one with nature (Muir woods) and have some lunch with a view (Sausalito). Good times!

I loved walking in the woods and looking in the beautiful woods and just at nature. I plan to go back one day! It was awesome and I recommend this to anyone visiting San Francisco and surrounding areas (close to Sausalito). Just the feeling I had is indescribable

Our visit to the Muir Woods was really spectacular! The giant trees were so stately and made me feel so small. The forest has a winding path that is so majestic with the sun shining thru the trees. A once in a lifetime experience! Not to be missed!

Josh was a great guide. Lots of information, good humor, good connection to guests. We went on July 4 and he was aware of parade in Sausalito and timed the tour to arrive after it had finished.
