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 or skip the hotel drop off and choose the option of taking the ferry back to San Francisco from Sausalito.

What an amazing tour. Not only were the Muir Woods beautiful, but Joe our driver was so knowledgeable and gave us running commentary about San Francisco on the way.
Photo stop at the Golden Gate was brilliant, wasn’t sure if we would have time but we did. Sausalito was great too, lovely little town

A great tour. Mostly self guided through the woods which to me was great because of the freedom to walk,take photos etc at my own time. The driver did a superb job navigating the holiday traffic

Booked this tour online the day prior and called immed. to confirm and inquire mtg time. Walk/running shoes a must! Light showers didn’t impact trip- easy dirt trails @Woods. We took the 9am- good choice. Ferry opt allows you to stay later in Saucelito. The trip was lovely, fun and safe.
