Hi! This is what I posted on Trip Advisor: Netting it out: Great trip! Great guide. Excellent service. Do it! For those who like detail: My wife and I bought the Extranomical Muir Woods expedition trip for an afternoon trip on a Sunday in March. We had no prior experience with Extranomical but read the reviews on Trip Advisor which seemed mostly positive. Extranomical told us up front that the Sunday PM trip to Muir Woods wasn’t the most popular and the trip could be cancelled since the minimum was four people (made sense). They said they would work with us to get on another tour if that was the case. Even though we didn’t meet the minimum, Extranomical went ahead with the trip anyway which we didn’t expect but very much appreciated. We took the ferry to Sausalito (included in the trip price) and our guide picked us up right on time, exactly where they told us he would be. The tour guide, Phil was incredible. He was able to provide a little history along the short drive to Muir Woods and he included a few bonus stops at key scenic points for pictures. Saying Muir Woods was beautiful would be an massive understatement. What amazing, unique trees in a serene, well-preserved forest. Overall, we had a great experience with Extranomical tours and would highly recommend them to anyone. From a service and product standpoint, I believe we got more than we paid for. A few tips: When you get your e-mail confirmation from Extranomical, make sure it is accurate. The first confirmation we received said we were being picked up at the hotel but our particular afternoon trip picks up in Sausalito. A short phone call remedied this issue. Also, I confirmed the reservation about five days before (which I did with every tour). They had us on the books as planned, no problem. I also called one more time the day before just to make sure the trip was still on. If you take the trip departing from Sausalito, make sure you plan the ferry ride appropriately to get there before your departure time to Muir Woods. We took the 9:45am ferry to Sausalito, arriving at 10:45 for a 2pm departure to Muir. This gave us enough time to look around Sausalito and have an unrushed lunch at the Trident (great lunch!). Muir Woods has a paved path so no hiking shoes needed. There are dirt paths if you want to see less people. Extranomical advertises the longest time in Muir Woods comparted to other tours (one of the reasons we chose them). From the time we left the vehicle, we had about 1 hour and 45 minutes actually in the park. It could have been about 15 min longer but our tour guide included a couple bonus stops because my wife was a photographer. In our opinion, 1 hour and 45 minutes was enough to enjoy the beautiful Red Woods but I can see how people could easily spend a half day there, especially if you like to hike. less

Wineries Extranomical Visits – For over a decade Extranomical Tours has been creating amazing memories on our Wine Country tours from San Francisco. We’ve partnered with quality wineries, which offer the best California Wine Country experience for our clientele. The wineries we visit on our Muir Woods and Wine Country tour provide complimentary wine tasting for our groups. We visit a range of wineries that are boutique and family-owned to large and grand, but they must have a friendly atmosphere, and offer beautiful scenery, quality wines and good value. 

Extranomical Tours partners with a great combination of wineries in both Sonoma County and Napa Valley for our Muir Woods and Wine Country Escape tour. All wineries offer a variety of local wines and a personalized experience no matter what day you go on the tour. Wineries may change based on availability but you will always experience a warm wine country welcome at each stop! We make sure that the wineries provide a relaxing setting as you indulge in crisp and fine wines and take in the exceptional views of California Wine Country. 

Madonna Estate, located in Napa's Carneros appellation, has been in production for over 80 years and hand-crafts a bevy of organic wines from Pinot Grigio and Cabernet Sauvignon to Riesling and Dolcetto. Cline Cellars is a quaint, boutique winery nestled in the Carneros region of Sonoma. They offer delicious Rhone varietal wines and classic California Wine Country style. Mayo Family Winery was founded in 1993 and the family believes that single vineyards produce the highest quality and enjoyable wines.

Discover our Redwoods & Wine Country Tour - We maximize the time you spend in Muir Woods National Monument and allow guests to enjoy the trails before the crowds. Explore the Coastal Redwood Sequoia groves in Muir Woods, home to the tallest tree species in the world. You’ll spend an hour enjoying California’s native flora and fauna, taking in giant ferns, moss-lined creeks, fresh bay leaf scented air from the many Laurel trees and squirrels, blue jays and deer if you’re lucky.

A brief drive North and you’ll find yourself in California’s renowned Wine Country. Spend a relaxing afternoon wine tasting, strolling the vineyards and learning about the practice of winemaking. Our Wine Country tour makes 4 tasting stops: 3 wineries and 1 at the historic Sonoma or Healdsburg Plaza spending 45 minutes to 1 hour at each location. We are the only Muir Woods and Wine Country tour that visits both Napa Valley & Sonoma wineries! All our wine tasting is complimentary and you’ll be able to taste a wide variety of amazing wines. The Wine Country plaza stop lasts a couple hours, so you’ll have time to grab a bite to eat and visit a few more tasting rooms located around the plaza. We’ll provide you with a map of the plaza and must-see local shops and tasting rooms to maximize your time.

As a bonus, you have the option to be dropped off at the picturesque seaside town of Sausalito, where you can browse the gift shops or stroll the waterfront and take the ferry (fare not included) back to San Francisco. Otherwise, on the journey back to San Francisco we’ll make one last stop at a scenic look-out point with sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco bay and city skyline, Alcatraz and the Bay Bridge.
