Tour Details

This guided tour has a relaxed pace so you can take the time to fully experience Muir Woods National Monument, the giant redwood forest nearest to San Francisco. The tour features a morning crossing of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge on your way to the Muir Wood National Monument and a bonus stop at mid-day in the charming seaside town of Sausalito.

After arriving at serene Muir Woods, you will enjoy up to 90 minutes of free time exploring this natural treasure set aside by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1908 as a national monument. There are a good number of park rangers on the Muir Woods trails, they are always happy to answer your questions.

There are many trails to choose from, all with towering California Redwoods, some over 250 feet tall. Our favorite trail meanders along the shadowy Redwood Creek where the tallest trees are located. Be on the lookout for the northern spotted owl, deer, and other native creatures to the area.

Although the stars of the show are the redwoods, Muir Woods is host to 13 species of ferns, a plant that has been on earth for more than 300 million years. Take the time to identify lady, maidenhair and goldback ferns as you lower your gaze from the redwood canopy above you.

Then, your guide will gather the group and head to Sausalito, a seaside community full of charm and unforgettable views of San Francisco. You’ll have time to browse the charming shops and perhaps have some lunch. Take pictures against the city skyline across the bay, then post them to your social media timeline so your friends can share the experience with you.

After our excursion in Sausalito, we will make our return trip back to San Francisco but not before a satisfying southbound jaunt across the Golden Gate Bridge as the sun nears the Pacific Ocean horizon.

If you select the option to return by ferry, we will have the ticket waiting for you. The Blue and Gold ferry will cruise past Angel Island and Alcatraz as you marvel at the Golden Gate Bridge and snap shareable panoramic memories of the San Francisco skyline.
