What To Expect

Hotel pickup in San Francisco begins with the drive across the Golden Gate Bridge, meaning you’ll reach Muir Woods before many other tours arrive. 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 some time here to wander through the grove of giant sequoias and cross over mossy streams. Then return to the tour vehicle for the drive further north into wine country.

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 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. Enjoy delicious local food paired with a collection of California wines.

Afterward, continue your tour to your second and third wineries in Sonoma County or Napa County for more tastings. Enjoy a leisurely stop at each winery, and you’ll have the chance to taste 3 to 5 wines of different varietals, from white to red to sparkling. Tasting fees are included, and you may purchase bottles not available in retail stores to take home.
 
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.

Amazing
Renee_O, Aug 2022
Dustin was amazing! Best tour guide! Trip was seamless, just the right amount of time in each vineyard and muir woods. Dustin stopped off one way back at perfect spot to get some great snaps of the Golden Gate Bridge. Would recommend this trip 100%
Awesome 1st wine tour
Andrea_L, Aug 2022
Roman is the best driver/tour guide I have ever had the privilege of being with for the day. Thank you for such a great experience.
We loved our Muirwoods and winery tour of Sonoma with tour guide Kimmie
Laurie_H, Aug 2022
Kimmie was so informative and taught us so much about the sights we were seeing and about San Francisco and about wine!! She was so friendly and would definitely recommend her as a tour guide. Also, she drive the bus and we felt safe and she made us feel confident in her abilities to wind around the narrow roads to Muirwoods.
Great Muir woods and wine country tour
Kevin_O, Aug 2022
Kimmy was our tour guide and she did a great job with the narration and our tour experience. The vineyards we visited also did a good job explaining the wine making process.
Wonderful day
CHIENKAI_L, Aug 2022
As a solo traveler, I really had a good time !! Everything was fully organized and stayed on time, so I highly recommend it for anyone who likes wine or wants a nice trip !!
Fun!
Isabel_V, Aug 2022

Roman is a great and fun...
suely_m, Aug 2022
Roman is a great and fun guide. He is very knowledgeable and had great stories and jokes about everything we saw and visited. I recommend this tour to anyone who has one day and wants to see Napa wineries and the beautiful nature of Muirwoods. Great food for the lunch upgrade. Great value!
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thanks for the kind recommendation. Good to hear Roman kept you laughing! Come again.
Best day of our vacation!
Austin_B, Aug 2022
Our tour guide was fantastic! Very smart, hilarious, and even showed us some gems not promised in the tour description! A peaceful, full, beautiful way to spend a day seeing the natural beauty of the Bay Area and Wine Country.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thanks for noticing. We try every day to go far, far beyond the standard tour, including something special. We appreciate your review.
Fun tour
Kathryn_H, Jul 2022
It was so fun! Dustin was a great guide. We didn’t book the lunch experience but Dustin made sure we knew great local spots to get an amazing lunch. So much fun and a great way to see different parts of San Francisco
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Good to hear you had a great time. Yes, this is a great way to see Muir Woods and the wine country all in one day! Take care.
AWESOME TOUR
Fred_G, Jul 2022
We have done this tour before with other companies. This was the best. Your guide BEN is a super nice guy. Very knowledgeable, funny, good hearted, just a nice human being. It was a pleasure to spend 8 hours with him. The tour itself was awesome. Wineries nice especially Mayo. We actually got an explanation on how wine was made.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
That all sounds perfect. We're happy that Ben made the experience even better. Let us know the next time you plan to come to SF. Take care.
Good wine and a great time
54x7xp8fwj, Jul 2022
Our tour guide Ben was awesome! He was very informative but added a humorous twist to it. It definitely was not a basic “and on your left…” type of tour. Although the tour lasted all day, it was totally worth it. I was not ready for it to end. The Muir Woods were peaceful and the wine we tasted was phenomenal. I would 100% recommend this tour to anyone hoping to fully experience the San Francisco (Napa/Sonoma) area.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Thanks so much for your recommendation! Ben enjoyed having you on his tour. Please come again!
Get out of the city
Teresa_C, Jul 2022
This was a great way to get out of the city and see two other very beautiful areas. The Muir woods were breathtaking and the winery's were beautiful and relaxing. Our driver Ben was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the city and all the areas we drove around!
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Yes, Muir Woods and the drive the wine country are absolutely beautiful! We were happy to have shared them with you. Travel well!
Great way to spend a day
Ewa_J, Jul 2022
Great tour, the guide was great overall! The second winery was the least enjoyable, but still a nice experience.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
It is nice to hear that you enjoyed your tour to Muir Woods and the wine country. Your guide, Roman, enjoyed having you. Let's try another tour soon!
Perfect way to spend a day!
Brooke_M, Jul 2022
Great tour! Had so much and definitely drank too much wine which was fabulous!! wouldn’t pay extra for the lunch it was very underwhelming but the rest of the tour was awesome!
Best way to spend you day in North Cal.
Gustavo_D, Jul 2022
What a wonderful experience! I enjoyed anything from beginning to end. Would definitely love to do this again soon!
Checked off two things on the bucket list.
Tammy_I, Jul 2022
These experiences are enhanced by the help of a wonderful guide. Dustin was awesome! I enjoyed our time in Muir Woods. Wine country was fantastic. While the wineries were small, we got a glimpse into the world of winery. We had a nice lunch in Sonoma. Well worth giving up a day for this excursion.
A Great Bay Area Woods & Wine Experience!
Megan_H, Jul 2022
This was a great way to ‘get a lot in’ for one full day in the Bay Area. It was very convenient to have the tour bus pick us up at our hotel. We liked the smaller size (~30ppl) of the tour group. Our guide was informative, entertaining, and took great care to make sure no one missed the bus! The wine tastings were about 45 minutes at each winery. We did not do the lunch option, and instead packed a picnic to enjoy in Sonoma Square. There were plenty of restaurants open for lunch as well for the group to disperse to. HIGHLY recommend!
The redwood trees of Muir...
Molly_P, Jul 2022
The redwood trees of Muir Woods were breathtaking, and Ross was an incredible tour guide! Can’t believe the area was used as inspiration for Star Wars.
Lovely day out of city
Denise_M, Jul 2022
Trip was exactly as I expected and made for a fun day out of San Francisco. Wineries didn’t have the best wines (as in I wasn’t interested in buying any), but thoroughly enjoyed the tastings, learning a little and seeing Sonoma/Napa. Muir Woods was also a beautiful way to start tour. Dustin was our guide and did a great job.
Fun Day!!!
54brenda, Jul 2022
The Muir Woods National Park Tour was a change and a good one!!! Ben was really nice and was able to tell us a lot about the area as well as telling us about the wineries we were visiting. He gave us a brief history lesson about the Golden Gate Bridge and that surrounding area as well.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Good to hear we beat your expectations and you had a fun day. Ben enjoyed having you!
