Muir Woods Expedition℠ & Sausalito Afternoon Tour

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Golden Gate National Recreation Area now requires advance reservations for private vehicles wishing to utilize the parking areas at Muir Woods National Monument. We offer daily departures -- book your San Francisco Redwoods Tour with us and secure your spot to see the Redwoods. 

Our Muir Woods and Sausalito Tour from San Francisco is a fully narrated semi-private tour, where you get to spend the most time in the Muir Woods National Monument! This tour starts off with a complimentary hotel pick up from San Francisco hotels located Downtown or Fisherman's Wharf. We are the only company that spends around 2 hours in the Muir Woods so you can truly enjoy the beauty of the Redwood Sequoia trees during your Muir Woods to Sausalito tour. Hike or walk in the forest while admiring some of the tallest trees in the world. Also enjoy the sights, scents, and fresh air on your trip. Take it easy and walk along the flat valley floor along Redwood Creek, or get a workout by climbing the paths up the valley slopes to get a good look at the tops of the redwood trees.

As you go to Sausalito after visiting the Muir Woods National Monument you can either purchase a ferry bay cruise ticket to go back to San Francisco, or you can just stay with the group to be dropped off at your hotel. If you take the ferry back, you'll get to enjoy the stunning San Francisco waterfront. Spend time to explore the quaint seaside town of Sausalito and maybe have dinner there before you make your way back to San Francisco. Please check ferry departure times to make sure you catch the last departure back to the city.

Note: For the rare event that commercial parking is not available at Muir Woods, we reserve the right to arrange an alternative destination for experiencing Giant Coastal Redwoods during your Muir Woods and Sausalito Tour

Comfortable bus, knowledgeable guide, good amount of time in Muir Woods. So glad we booked this. Good value and great memories.
– steve k. on 07/23/2016

This was a great tour....scheduling was a breeze and we were picked up right on schedule. Phil was awesome.....stopped off at Golden Gate Bridge for photos and on to Muir Woods where we had a couple hours (which turned out to be perfect). Then on to Sausalito....we chose to take the ferry back to San Fran so that we had extra time in Sausalito. All in all a great experience.
– Petter H. on 03/26/2016

Would have been nice if the tour guide was able to participate in the actual Muir Woods walk, atleast in the beginning to get more information about Muir Woods and the tries on site. Otherwise we were really happy with the tour and our guide.
