Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Muir Woods and Sausalito Tour plus Bay Cruise

Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco

Muir Woods National Monument and the village of Sausalito are two of the most popular things to do north of San Francisco. This convenient tour from the city makes it easy to check off both from your list, plus take a San Francisco Bay cruise for even more photo ops.

Your morning starts with a drive across the Golden Gate Bridge, where you’ll stop to take in views from Vista Point on your way to Muir Woods. You have about 75 minutes here to walk along paths through the forest of old-growth coastal redwoods, known for being some of the oldest and tallest trees in the world.

Then head to Sausalito, a picturesque small town nestled between the Marin Headlands and San Francisco Bay on the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge. Take a walk on the waterfront, grab a snack (own expense) or check out the art galleries and shops. Once back in San Francisco, board your 1-hour Bay Cruise departing from Pier 39.

Your narrated cruise takes you underneath the bridge (weather permitting) and past Alcatraz Island. Enjoy views of the city skyline and the local sea lions, and then end your tour with a drop-off in San Francisco.

Please note: the order of activities can change, depending on the Muir Woods departure time, which won’t be confirmed until about a week before each tour.

We had an amazing time, the driver stopped for some picture time new Golden Gate. I wish we had more time for walks in the woods, but overall it was really great experience!

I didn’t know about Miur Woods until I read about it in the tour description. This tour took me places I could not have gone with SF public transportation. The driver was entertaining and made it fun.

It was an excellent tour , very informative and relaxing. The Muir Woods park is very impressive an we enjoyed it a lot. On our way back we decided to stay in Sausalito and have a nice lunch and stroll around the city. We took the Ferry back to San Francisco and the view of the Bay was breathtaking. We love the tour from beginning to end.

The drive to Muir Woods was beautiful and nail biting...the road was along the mountain sides and were very elevated...the driver navigated this with expertise while filling is in on information about the area and the Muir Woods. I have wanted to come here forever and it felt like a religious experience...the redwoods were so large and high and so majestic...To get perspective on photos you had to have people in the shots for comparison. This was nature at its best. Beautiful gift shop....Only problem for me was that the stay at Muir Woods was too short...I could have stayed all day!!

The Muir Woods and Saulsalito Tour with the Bay cruise was really great. The drive over the Golden Gate Bridge, was part of the best day. Muir Woods was everything I had expected. The only thing was that we didn't have enough time in Saulsalito. Apart from that, the rest of it including the cruise was fantastic. The tour guide/driver was very knowledgeable.

Took the trip on 10/5 and had an absolute blast. It was well run and the bus driver was knowledgeable, personable and an all around great guy. I would recommend this trip to anyone who doesn't have a lot of time but wants to see as much as possible.
