Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Mark off two Northern California top attractions on this comprehensive day trip to the Sonoma and Napa wine country, with a stroll through not-to-be-missed Muir Woods en route. You'll reach the redwoods before the crowds, maximizing your time in the park.
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.

I can't think of a better way to learn more about the history of San Francisco, and to visit Muir Woods and Wine County! Admittedly, I was lucky to have a phenomenal tour guide, Kimberly, who was so pleasant and informative and funny, she MADE the trip. Pickup at the hotel was right on time and we followed a perfect schedule for the day. We had about an hour and a half stop at Muir Woods before heading to Sonoma Valley followed by a stop in Napa. I did not select the optional Gourmet Lunch, which was fine as there were plenty of fabulous restaurants, and we had about 2 hours for lunch and another wine tasting. I even ordered wine from 2 of the wineries to ship back home. Highly recommend this tour!

Pamela was fun, informative and accommodating. My fiance and I had a wonderful time. She gave great recommendations and we learned a lot about the bay area and wine country. Will recommend to anyone looking to visit wine country.

Ben was our driver / guide and did an incredible job. His driving and personality was A+. He constantly was giving us information along the way. We started off in Muir woods and then to the Vinyards. We went to three different ones. On the way back Ben took us up to a look out area so we could see a awesome vie of the Golden gate bridge and the City itself. The day was roughly 10 hrs and worth every minute of it. Thanks Ben!
