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.

Thoughtful, knowledgeable and thorough guide. Going in the afternoon increases chances of great views across the bay and going in the morning allows more time in Sausalito if you take the ferry back. GGB stop is a plus. And Muir Woods! A magical place

Good information, enjoyable bus ride. Really great if you don't have your own car but want to see the Muir Woods. Also I love getting info that I normally wouldn't know, it makes it much more enjoyable. The woods were great. Sausalito was ok but not my favorite part.

Very friendly people and all went well. The only reason for not giving it top rate is due to timing. I’d like to have more time in the woods there seemed to a rush to make it to Sausalito which is a charming place but does not require such length of time. I guess this shorter time was so that people doing the wine tour could catch their next bus from town. All in all a good half a day tour.
