Excellent and bus driver great. Would have liked about an hour more to walk north in woods though. Water on bus would have been nice too.

Andrew, NA, NA, Jun 17, 2017

The redwoods were great! We had an hour and a half, and that was about the right amount of time for a visit. Sausalito was pretty, but mostly shops, and not a place we would have visited very long by itself; however, we wanted the ferry ride, which was very interesting, and it gave us a closeup glimpse of Alcatraz. The bus driver / tour guide was extremely informative and entertaining, and made the experience memorable. The arrangements for the trip were convenient, and we really appreciated that the bus driver contacted us to confirm the details, and to let us know he was on his way to pick us up.

The whole day was fantastic with everything going to plan and a great and helpful tour guide/driver.

David, Brandon, Manitoba, May 27, 2017

This tour was one of the best we took in San Francisco. The driver was funny, informative & very professional. Definitely a trip everyone coming to SF should make! Although the forest is absolutely magical, I would like to suggest that the company have an optional tour that is a minimum of 2 hrs longer. It would have been great to explore more of the area as we feel we missed too much. Thanks again for a fantastic time!

Great tour, great staff. Highly recommend this gem!

The trip was great and the guide excellent - very knowledgeable. My only concern was with the email response once tickets were purchased. We went to Pier area and went to a couple different booths before getting guidance to go to Beach St. (if I remember). Thank goodness we gave ourselves enough time to find your location - not clear when ordering.

Tour guide was informative & fun. Bus transport efficient & comfortable. Wish I had the option to spend more time At Muir Woods to hike one of the longer trails.

we had a wonderfull time at muir woods & sausalito and would use again next time!, thanks

Ronald, Gainesville, FL, Mar 16, 2017

Tour was just as advertised. Definitely recommend and price is reasonable. Due to park restrictions the tour was on a large van, not a full size bus. Which we thought was a nicer way to go. Driver was excellent (sorry I forgot his name). He gave interesting information the whole way, but no silly games to make you respond to. From other reviews was concerned about the curvy road and motion sickness but that part of the road was very short and was not a problem. Park has to be experienced as descriptions and pictures do not due it justice. Thought time at the park was adequate, but like all good things it does have to end. Was easy walk, saw seniors making the walk without difficulty. Took ferry back from Sausalito which was a good choice for the view. Sausalito is small and had plenty of time to walk around have lunch and catch a ferry back with not a long wait. Have taken many tours in many cities and this company did a great job. Had our 2 college aged kids with us and they loved the experience as well. Again will say great driver.

Tour Details

The Popular Muir Woods & Sausalito Tour with Return by Ferry to Fisherman's Wharf San Francisco, Pier 41. Allows for extended visit on your own in Sausalito.

Travel north in style, on a comfortable, air conditioned vehicle, across the Golden Gate Bridge , the icon of San Francisco, and through our picturesque coastal headlands into one of the oldest national monuments.

Nestled at the foot of Mount Tamalpais is Muir Woods National Monument , one of the remaining groves of first growth coastal redwoods. The woods were named for John Muir, a 19th century naturalist who was instrumental in establishing the National Park system.

Muir Woods is made up of over 560 acres of redwood forest containing the largest Coast redwoods, up to 252 feet tall and 14 feet across, 1000 years old! Wander through this grove of virgin Redwoods and capture photo opportunities like you’ve rarely experienced. The park is home to 50 species of birds, black-tailed deer, steelhead trout and hundreds of other wild inhabitants.

Then travel on to picturesque Sausalito which was once a fishing village and now a tiny bayside community. Quaint Victorian bungalows are built into the steep hillside and a variety of waterfront restaurants, boutiques and small art galleries line the downtown shopping district. Sausalito has a Mediterranean appeal that is often compared to the French Riviera.

Once you depart from the tour in Sausalito,  take your time exploring Sausalito! You’ll have time for shopping, photos or a bit of exploring long the waterfront of this unique town, with its old world charm and breathtaking views of the Bay and San Francisco skyline.  When you check in for your tour with your tour operator, you will receive your one-way ferry ticket and ferry schedule to take the 30-35 minute cruise back to Pier 41, San Francisco.
