What To Expect

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.

Muir woods and winery tour was excellent . Our tour guide, Travis, was knowledgeable, funny and a very good driver. We learned a lot about the winery business in California. And we saw some beautiful vineyards. The choice of the 3 very different wineries was nice.

Wonderful tour! We really enjoyed being able to see and do so much in one day. Vince, our guide and driver, was excellent! Some of the wineries were a bit rushed, as it was difficult to get everyone back on time, but nonetheless, it was so much fun and worth it! We had about 1hr and 20 minutes at Muir Woods, then we headed to Mayo Family Winery, where we spent about 45minutes. We then proceeded to Sonoma Plaza for lunch (we did lunch on our own--only had 1 hour). After lunch, we went to Kieu Hoang Winery (this one was a short stop too, but such a beautiful winery). Lastly, we ended up in Cline Cellars, which was one of our favorites and the longest stop of all of the wineries. Overall, highly recommend it--especially if it's your first time going.

This tour was amazing from the beginning to the end. Our tour guide (Ben) was awesome. He did a great job and he had a very pleasant and professional attitude. I visited from Washington, DC and I learned so much about the Bay area. I highly recommend this tour.

Kimberly was an exceptional tour guide who kept us informed and entertained throughout the long day. The wineries selected were all excellent. The VIP lunch was delicious. It would have been nice to spend a little longer at Muir Woods and long lunch. Otherwise, it was a memorable tour!
