Afternoon: Muir Woods and Sausalito
Our Muir Woods tours from San Francisco spends approximately 2 hours in Muir Woods giving you ample time to enjoy the beauty of the Sequoia Redwood trees. The main trail has a boardwalk and runs along the shadowy Redwood creek. There is a half hour loop, a one hour loop, and a one hour and a half loop. Of course there are longer trails that extend into surrounding parks, but the tallest redwoods grow along the main trail, as it is at a lower elevation and the trees receive enough water from the creek. Other trails are pretty steep and require at least half a day to complete.
After the Muir Woods tour, we head to the beautiful San Francisco Bay town of Sausalito here guests who purchase a ferry ticket will depart from the tour and make their way back to San Francisco on their own. Our Muir Woods and Sausalito tours will then head back to San Francisco, crossing the Golden Gate Bridge.
