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.

Wonderful trip to breathtaking Muir Woods. Very easy check-in at Fishermans Warf. It was very close to our hotel so we just walked over. We had a small bus about 15 or so people and a very knowledgeable driver, Igor. He told lots of fun facts about San Fran as we drove across the Golden Gate Bridge and headed to the scenic woods. He was very pleasant and remembered where everyone was from. We had about an hour and 15 minutes at the actual woods. It was a great visit. If we come back again, we will rent a car and spend more time there. Sausalito is very tiny and cute. We walked around and saw the galleries and grabbed lunch. Decided to take the ferry back so we didn't have to rush. Ferry isn't included in the trip, but if you have a San Francisco Clipper card there is a discount.

It was amazing. You can not appreciate the size of these trees unless you see them in person. The creeks on the side of the walkways was flowing very fast and the sounds were amazing. Highly recommended

Randy was our tour bus driver and did a excellent job of keeping us entertained during the tour. The tour was good but Randy made it an excellent tour. It was very enjoyable because of Randy.

The driver was funny and attentive, he also drove very carefully, which is crucial, as the road to the woods is very curvy. We made a stop near the Golden Gate Bridge with a scenic view to take pictures and then went to the woods, which was amazing. Will recommend to anyone, who loves nature

Our guide was great with excellent commentary and loads of knowledge about everything on the way to Muir forest. It is a must do activity when in SFO. I wish we had at least another hour in the Muir forest.

Great half day trip to Muir Woods to see the redwoods and also 45 minutes in Sausalito. Antonio was funny and provided a great tour!!

This tour was the perfect accommodation. Muir woods is beautiful--could have used more time there. Sausalito is a quaint little town. The short time there was enough since the weather was cold and the town small so we did a quick walk through and grabbed a bite to eat. Randy, our driver/guide made this trip even better. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and funny. I don't know how he drives that bus on some of those roads, but he did an excellent job.

This trip was wonderful! We stopped along the way at a hidden lookout point to see the Golden Gate bridge and all of San Francisco. Beautiful! Muir Woods is beyond gorgeous. We could have walked for hours. The only down side of the trip was that we wish we had more time in Sausalito. However, we can go back on our own, as our FANTASTIC driver and tour guide- ANTONIO- gave us hints on other transportation options. He was one of the best drivers I have ever encountered. Thank you Antonio and Gray Line for a terrific half day trip!
