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.

Great trip! Our tour guide, Randy, share a ton of information about sights, landmarks and restaurant suggestions and made the trip a ton of fun. Muir Woods was amazing and Sausalito was super cute. Could have spent more time at both locations cations, but still felt like the length of the tour was good-allowed you to comfortably do other things in the city.

Thoroughly enjoyed this trip with my 13 year old son. It was the perfect amount of time for us to spend at the Muir Woods and then move on to Sausalito. The bus driver was fun and provided great commentary along the way. I would highly recommend.

Excellent tour as we have come to expect from Viator
Pick up and coach were as advised and expected
Tour guide was interesting and entertaining
Muir Woods was well worth a visit to feel the magnificence of the giant redwoods
Sausalito was as cool and relaxed as when we were there five years ago - worth a visit as a change from the buzz of San Francisco
We chose to leave the coach there and get the ferry back to San Fran - an interesting add on for a different view of the bay

Really enjoyed our trip to Muir Woods, wish we would have had more time in both places but it was enough to wet our appetites to go back again on our own and explore. Highly reccommend this trip.

Great tour. The Muir Woods are stunning and well worth visiting. The bus driver was hilarious and was knowledgeable about San Francisco and its surrounds. Sausalito is a sleepy but pretty town offering great views and photo opportunities of San Fran. There is also a good ice cream shop there. Yum!

The trip was exactly as advertised. Knowledgeable driver of the sights along the way. Would recommend it as a way to see the Giant Redwoods.

Excellent! Highly recommend. Driver was great and with good humor. The only thing- wish we spend more time in woods. May be to create 4.5 or 5hr tour with more time in Muir Woods?
