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.

Amazing! Our tour operator told the bus such great stories about San Francisco as we drove to the Muir Woods and then had other great stories as we went through Sausalito. Bus was comfortable. Tour was the perfect amount of time! I highly recommend this tour to the Muir Woods! I had two kids with me and they loved the tour just as much as I did!

The tour guide was excellent. The trip was a great way to see some amazing sites around San Francisco. I would have liked a bit more time at Muir Woods, but this was a fairly inexpensive way to get to see this amazing place and spectacular views of the Golden Gate quickly and efficiently.

Everything was pretty good. Be careful if you get car sick because the bus goes through winding roads. The Driver was super funny and very informative!

There was adequate time at both Muir Woods and in Sausalito. Our guide, whose name I forget, was excellent. He was friendly, patient, very knowledgeable providing a great narrative throughout the tour. Even before entering Muir Woods, he pointed out places of interest in SF.

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.

Muir woods is a beautiful, spiritual place, not to be missed. Sausalito is lovely.

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.
