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.

Our driver must have been top of his class! He was excellent at maneuvering through the traffic and was enjoyable to listen to, with just the right amount of humor and fact.

This was one of our best tours that we took. Our guide made it most memorable. He was so informative and nice. So it wasn't just Muir Woods and Sausalito but nice tour info on the ride over. We opted to stay in Sausalito for the afternoon and take the ferry back. It was a day well spent. Anyone who goes to SF should visit Muir Woods, a national monument.

This is the only way to see this beautiful redwood forest. Parking your car up there is a nightmare.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

Great driver. Loved listening to his narrative as we drove to and back from Muir Woods. The only thing I would change is to extend the tour by an hour. I am an avid shopper and time alloted to Sausalito just was not enough. I would highly recommend this trip.

My husband and I enjoyed the trip immensely. Service by Viator was excellent from the pickup and dropped back to the hotel. The bus driver was very informative, polite and a pleasure.
