Gaze up at the towering tops of redwoods, stroll down pine needle-covered paths, and hear stories about famed naturalist John Muir on this relaxing excursion in cathedral-like forests. Enjoy a scenic drive through Muir Woods and check out the charming streets of Sausalito with an experienced guide to lead the way.
Climb onto a comfortable coach as you leave downtown San Francisco behind and cruise beneath the iconic cables strung along the Golden Gate Bridge. Enjoy views of the bay and of the Pacific Ocean before reaching the other side. Trade traffic noise and concrete for bird songs and ferns as you enter the beloved Muir Woods. (Entrance fee into Muir Woods National Monument included in tour price)
Covering 554 acres (224 ha), this protected park is filled with groves of old growth redwoods that are rarely seen along this stretch of California. Get out and meander underneath their lumbering branches and snap photos of the sunlight filtering through to the forest floor for 90 minutes of free time. Keep your eyes peeled for deer and chipmunks that call the woods home and check out immersive exhibits that detail the park's history.
Continue on with a drive through the bayside streets of charming Sausalito before heading back into San Francisco through the Golden Gate Bridge. For those who want to explore Sausalito a bit more, consider stopping here to enjoy the many local boutique shops, antique galleries, and one-of-a-kind cafes and restaurants. Simply hop off the tour bus and return to San Fran with a scenic ferry ride later in the day.
