Full description

See the giant redwoods at Muir Woods National Monument and stroll through the picturesque city of Sausalito on a guided tour from San Francisco. Choose to extend your time in Sausalito and return by ferry, or rent a bike to explore on 2 wheels.

Meet your guide in San Francisco and board the bus to begin your experience. Cross the Golden Gate Bridge as you leave the city, and pass through the Rainbow Tunnels on Highway 101. Admire the views of tidal flats and rolling hills, with Mount Tamalpais in the distance.

Arrive at Muir Woods National Monument, where you’ll spend 1 hour and 15 minutes exploring. Stroll through the landscape of giant sequoia trees, unchanged since the Coast Miwok Native American tribe lived here centuries ago.

Follow the Nature Trail along Redwood Creek, passing 500- to 800-year-old redwoods. Wander through Cathedral and Bohemian Groves. Be sure to stop at the Visitor Center and the gift shop for more gems.

Continue onto Sausalito, a coastal community filled with elegant homes that face the bay. Enjoy a 1-hour stop to explore the city, which has unrivaled views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco skyline.

See the unique colony of floating homes moored along the waterfront. Walk through the downtown area — a National Historic Landmark District —  passing quaint boutique shops, galleries, and restaurants.

Select the option including the Sausalito ferry, to enjoy a scenic 1-way ferry trip back to San Francisco. Upgrade your activity with a 4-hour bike rental to extend your time in Sausalito. With this option, you can explore at your own pace and return to San Francisco at your leisure.

Well, it all starts with the weather, which was fabulous that morning. Cool and warmed up fairly quick. The bus guide was informative, but honestly, just being able to explore the Muir Woods was astonishing. The paths were great. Great accommodations for before and after the hike. Loved it and next time, would probably just drive there myself and take the longer trails.

Great tour!

I would highly recommend this tour. Customer service was great from start to finish. We loved Josh our tour guide. Muir Woods is beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing. Great place to unplug for a minute. Make sure you get the Tyler Florence grilled cheese at the Muir Woods Cafe. Best EVER!

It was a wonderful trip to Muir Woods from Downtown San Francisco. Driver was very good and informative throughout the whole trip. We opted to terminate our tour when we reached Sausalito and take the Ferry Back to San Francisco as we are at two of the recommended places to eat in Sausalito (Hamburger & Ice Cream stores). We tipped him as we said goodbye and had a wonderful afternoon sightseeing. Entrance was included to Muir Woods which was important and not always an option with other tours.
