Travel Across the Golden Gate Bridge and through the rugged coastal mountains. Enjoy magnificent views of San Francisco Bay and valleys, where the Coastal Miwok Indians once lived. Finish your tour with a stop in the picturesque town of Sausalito.
What to Expect
Cross the Golden Gate Bridge, and after you motor through the “Rainbow Tunnels” on Hwy. 101,
Marin’s unique topography comes into view. Tidal flats along the bay segue into gentle undulating hills as they rise to meet Mt. Tamalpais, Marin’s 2,600-foot landmark.
As your tour ascends Mt. Tam, breathtaking views abound at every turn. Descending into the valley toward Muir Woods, you will see a landscape that hasn’t changed since its original inhabitants, the Coast Miwok Indians, lived here centuries ago.
You will have 1.25 hour to spend in Muir Woods, the most time offered on any sightseeing tour program. There will be ample time to stroll the Nature Trail along picturesque Redwood Creek, and through Cathedral and Bohemian Groves, filled with 500 to 800-year-old redwoods. Be sure to stop at the Visitors Center and Gift Shop.
The next stop on your tour is beautiful Sausalito, a Mediterranean-like community with elegant hillside homes facing the bay and a unique colony of floating homes moored along the waterfront.
You will have time to stroll Downtown Sausalito, a National Historical Landmark District offering many fine shops, galleries and restaurants. Return to San Francisco on the ferry with stunning views of the San Francisco skyline. The ferry lands at either Fisherman's Wharf or the San Francisco Ferry Building at the foot of Market Street.
