Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

San Francisco Super Saver: Muir Woods & Wine Country w/ optional Gourmet Lunch

Wine Country

Muir Woods National Monument tour:
Hotel pickup in San Francisco starts early for the drive north across the Golden Gate Bridge, meaning you’ll reach Muir Woods before many other tours arrive. On your way out of the city, see the Palace of Fine Arts and the Presidio.

Muir Woods National Monument is home to a pristine forest of California coastal redwoods, which are some of the planet’s tallest and oldest trees with heights that can reach 250 feet (76 meters). You have about one hour here to wander through the grove of trees with your guide, who will tell you about the local vegetation and wildlife along the nature trail while you walk over mossy streams. Then return to the tour vehicle for the drive further north into wine country.

Wine country tour:
When you reach your first winery in Sonoma County’s Carneros region, you can explore the grounds, enjoy photo ops of the vineyard and sample a variety of wines in a welcoming atmosphere. For lunch, guests can choose one of two lunch options. The first is to venture out on their own and try one of the many cafés and restaurants located in the plaza. The second option is to upgrade their wine country experience to the next level with a private seated gourmet food and wine pairing experience at a local restaurant. They will enjoy delicious local food paired with a collection of California wines. After being greeted with Sonoma Valley cheeses and sparkling wine, guests may select a course such as tomato bisque, pasta with almond-arugula pesto and grated pecorino romano or grilled salmon with seasonal vegetables and balsamic reduction.

Afterward, continue your tour to your second and third wineries in Sonoma County or Napa County for more tastings. Total time at each winery is about one hour, and you’ll have the chance to taste 3 to 5 wines of different varietals, from white to red to sparkling at each stop. Tasting fees are included, and you may purchase bottles to take home, if you wish. See below for a sample of wineries you may visit.

Your day trip ends with the drive back across the Golden Gate Bridge. Admire views of the vast Pacific and the rugged coastline before hotel drop-off.

The Tour was exactly as advertised. Beautiful day and drive. Lunch was delicious. Aoka our Tour Guide was informative, humorous, knowledgeable, and a great driver. She even taylored the onboard music to be age appropriate for the passengers. I would do the same trip again!

Fantastic tour with an incredible tour guide. Antony knows San Francisco like the back of his hand! The wineries were great and I thought we spent the perfect amount of time at Muir Woods. Made great friends on the trip, especially with the Canadian in the yellow dress!

We had an amazing time on this tour. Our tour guide Anthony was very informative and kept us laughing! The Muir Woods were awesome and the wine tasting fantastic. We even got to see the most beautiful sunset on our drive home! Would absolutely recommend this tour!!!

Loved this tour! Everything was beautiful and seamless from pick up to drop off, especially the bright glow of yellow from everywhere you looked! From the mustard flowers to my yellow dress... it was yellow, yellow, yellow, yellow!

More to topic though, all the wineries were lovely and the wine was delicious!. I also recommend booking the extra lunch. It helped connect with others on the tour, try more local wines and not have to worry about cash or food. Everything's taken care of for you.

To make the day even more amazing, our driver, Anthony, was hilarious! So knowledgeable and really went the extra mile to ensure we all got great value. He also loves yellow. I would definitely book another tour if Anthony was our guide again!

Overall great day!

We stopped to take pictures at the Golden Gate Bridge on the way to the Muir Woods and on our way back to our hotels after the wine tours. Jake is a fantastic guide - extremely knowlegeable, well-spoken and funny. He also set expectations throughout the trip as to how long everything would take and we stayed on time. It gave me a chance to prepare for the longer legs of the journey which I appreciated. He's also a good driver for a 26 year old, and fun but mature for his age.The first winery Mayo was tremendously informative and the wine was amazing, but the second Hoang winery was great for scenery and photos, but not the best tour or wine. The third winery Cline also had high quality wines and pretty grounds. The Muir Woods were amazing and I felt like we had just the right amount of time for it. All in all, this was totally worth the 120 price tag.

Our tour guide Anthony was incredible and so much fun. We learned a lot, saw so much on our drive into wine country that Anthony knew things about and shared. We went to Muir Woods and the following wineries: Mayo, Kieu Hoang, and Cline. Mayo was our favorite. Thanks Anthony for a great cheesecake d
