Full description

Take a small-group day trip by bus around San Francisco. See the Golden Gate Bridge, spend time at the Muir Woods National Monument, and enjoy lunch in picturesque Sausalito.

Meet outside Fisherman’s Wharf at your chosen tour time. After a brief roll call, you’ll board the bus and travel to your first stop. Over the next 6 hours, you’ll be treated to stories about the neighborhoods, diversity, and geography of the area. 

You will exit the bus at several stops for photo opportunities and exploration, enjoy lunch in Sausalito, and then spend over an hour in the beautiful Muir Woods National Monument.

At the end of your amazing adventure, you’ll be dropped off at the same location where you boarded the bus.

An excellent and informative trip. I only had 3 days in San Francisco and this is the perfect way to get to see a lot in just one day. Sean Sullivan our guide was very knowledgeable and told stories in a way that made them interesting. Always made time to answer our questions.
