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 was really nice and relaxing, and we got to see the Golden Gate Bridge in the way there. I’d say we didn’t get the best or most typical view of the bridge which wasn’t great but got some nice pictures. Sausalito is a nice place but there’s not a lot to do except get ice cream and take the ferry back to the city for nice views.

Time in Muir Woods was 1 hour and not 90 minutes as announced and time in Sausalito was 50 minutes not 60. We did not encounter heavy traffic at any time. All in all it was a very good tour and enjoyable, but the time in Sausalito was way too short to do any real sightseeing or browsing the shops. Tour guide Brittany was very pleasant and informative.

Travel guide was excellent, giving interesting history and travel advice. Had plenty of time to do the longest trail at Muir Woods. Sausalito is a cute little beach town with shopping and gelato. Our guide gave us the option of staying in Sausalito and taking the ferry back to San Francisco.
