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 pickup from centrally located hotels by air-conditioned bus for the 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 before boarding your 1-hour San Francisco Bay cruise.

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 hotel drop-off in San Francisco.

The bus driver was pretty funny, kept us entertained as he drove through Fisherman's Wharf, across the Golden Gate Bridge, and through Marin County on our way to Muir Woods. The forest was beautiful. Don't think I've ever found a more peaceful, awe-inspiring, spectacular place in my life. Only had an hour or so there, could have spent the entire day. We next went to Sausalito and then I took a ferry back to the city.

Highly recommend this trip! Great value!

The tour of the Muir woods was beautiful and majestic. It is hard to capture their height on pictures. We also enjoyed lunch by the water in Sausalito. It was a great day trip.

Loved getting outside of San Francisco to two lovely places. The redwoods of Muir Woods are a sight to see and Sausalito was a quaint town to visit, although many places were closed due to Thanksgiving. It was a sunny day so the bay cruise was fantastic and we were able to see the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz on a clear day.

What an incredible tour, the beautiful Muir Woods, the town of Sausalito and the Bay Cruise. The driver of the bus should not talk so much as the hike has real dangers and he should avoid talking so much about himself and the stereotypical stories he narrated.

Bus driver was great and earned his money, the road to Muir Woods is difficult. Gave great tips on Sausalito and San Francisco. Bay cruise was great but dress for the weather.
