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. 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.

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.

First I must thank our wonderful bus driver and man of much knowledge... JOSH/JOSHUA... he is he BEST. We had some extra time on the way to the woods so he gave us a tour of the city... passing Mrs. Doubtfires house...little tidbits about the tunnel that was painted the colors of Morks suspenders, things like that... play good music.. stopped once we got over the Golden Gate Bridge to take some photos. Muir Woods is a must see. we were very lucky in that it was not very crowded on our visit since now its by appointment only.. then went to Sausalito... not much there.. had a scoop of ice cream and then took the ferry back.. not a good idea.. the ferry I mean.. by the time you get back to shore the Pier is pretty deserted... better off returning by bus. other then that... it was great!!
