First, this enthralling excursion takes you across the Golden Gate Bridge to stop for a view of San Francisco from Vista Point, then through the coastal mountains to the Bay Area's popular Muir Woods. This national monument is the site of a virgin forest of California Coast redwood trees, among the oldest and tallest on earth. Take the opportunity to roam through an ancient forest of giant redwood trees on your 75-minute visit of Muir Woods.
The tour then takes you to Sausalito, a quaint Mediterranean-style seaside village. Stroll along the waterfront, shop or take photos in this picturesque artists' colony nestled on the northern shores of San Francisco Bay.
In addition, you'll enjoy an hour of breathtaking sightseeing on the Golden Gate Bay Cruise. The fully narrated cruise on San Francisco Bay takes you under the Golden Gate Bridge (weather permitting) for close-up views of Alcatraz Island, the San Francisco waterfront and the California sea lions.
Please note: the order of activities can change, depending on the Muir Woods departure time, which won’t be confirmed until about a week before each tour.
Due to changes that the National Parks Service has made to the parking reservation systems for Muir Woods, from May 15 2018 we are unable to guarantee specific tour times to this popular destination at the time of booking.
The Muir Woods and Sausalito portion of this tour lasts approximately 4 hours and you will be contacted by email one week prior to your tour date to confirm the timing of your tour.
While we appreciate that this may not be ideal for your trip planning, unfortunately these are circumstances beyond our control and we, like all tour companies, are restricted in the times that bus parking will be available.
We hope that this does not spoil your trip to San Francisco and that you will join us to experience the majesty of the towering redwoods and natural beauty of this world famous historic landmark.
