Full description

Explore the ancient groves of coastal redwoods in Muir Woods National Monument alongside an expert guide on a half-day tour. Then discover the charming streets of Downtown Sausalito on a relaxed half-day tour.

After a pick-up from a central San Francisco hotel, head north over the bridge and into the Marin Headlands. If the fog is clear, you might get a chance to stop and take some pictures of the bridge up close.

When you arrive in Muir Woods, take an hour and a half to roam through this ‘living museum’ where you can glimpse the towering trees that used to dominate the west coast from Santa Barbara to Washington.

Following your exploration of Muir Woods, hop back in the coach for a quick ride over to Sausalito. Enjoy a 15-20 minute, narrated in-coach tour through the beautiful seaside Mediterranean-style town, and then some free time to walk around.

After about 45 minutes in Sausalito, hop back in the coach for a trip back across the Golden Gate Bridge, or opt for a ferry ride back to San Francisco. You'll be dropped back off at your pick-up point.

This half-day tour is a great way to see all the highlights of the northern San Francisco Bay in a limited amount of time.

Muir Woods self-guided walk was spectacular. It can get busy on the main trail, but if you take the Hillside trail, you have solitude to immerse yourself and appreciate the Redwood giants. Transport there was good, guided driver shared some facts about SF and area around. What's really cool that as you leaves SF you see the Golden Gate Bridge from Prwsidio area and then you as rally cross it. Once stopping in Sausalito after Muir Woods the driver mentioned that we can either explore the downtown or fetcha ferry back to SF. We decided to then not go back with the tour guide, but indees catch the ferry rjats a scenic ride with great views on the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and the cityscape. Highly recommend

It was a great trip. Brittany, our driver, was friendly and helpful. The timing was good, except the options for ferries back from Sausalito aren't great, there aren't too many. The Golden Gate bridge was shrouded in fog, but still got some good photos as we drove through. Would have been nice to spend more time at the bridge, maybe half an hour (so we could walk on it) and less time in Sausalito.

Superb small group excursion without having to stay together... The group just needs to meet before leaving each place... Our guide Bryan was great! I recommend doing the excursion in the morning, it was cool, but there was no one in Muir wood, peaceful and great for photos without too many tourists on it ... Sausalito, very cute and of course the point view on the Golden Gate... Because of Carl (the fog) we couldn't see the bridge on the driveway, but Bryan gave us time on the way back so we could photograph the Golden Gate! Really nice !
