Great Tour Guide - very knowledgable and friendly The Forest was a great place to visit and the giant redwoods most impressive

Edward, Glassboro, NJ, Apr 23, 2017

Great tour with helpful driver and guide. Highly recommend.

Phyllis, Lees summit, Missouri, Mar 23, 2017

Beautiful spot, the trees are awesome. A little disappointed when driver said he would only stop in Sausalito for about 10 minutes. Glad we decided to take the ferry back. Sausalito is a beautiful town, good little restaurants. Nice break from the busy style in San Francisco. Muir Woods is gorgeous and a must see.

Great trip, great guide Patrick!

John, Torbay, NL, Mar 18, 2017

Driver was excellent. The only down side to the tour, is that it would have been nice to have more time at Muir Woods

William, South plainfield, Nj, Mar 9, 2017

Great tour, the guide picked us up at our hotel in a very modern, comfortable van, at the designated time, and was a wealth of information from that point on. We proceeded to Muir Woods, again, the guide gave us so much information, about the places we were passing, and all about the redwoods. We had an hour and a half to walk through Muir Woods, just enough time to explore. We opted to leave the tour in Sausalito, have a nice dinner and ferry back. This tour was one of the highlights of our San Francisco trip!

Erik, Gothenburg, Sweden, SE, Feb 8, 2017

Our driver was excellent and had a lot to tell us about San Francisco and Muir Woods. I also appreciated being picked up at my hotel and being returned to it.


Guide very informative 5 stars*****


From the moment Adolfo picked us up at 7:30am til he returned us that evening the tour was grand! Your buses are clean, luxurious and comfortable. Patrick drove us to Muir Woods. Both guides were entertaining, informative and safe drivers. We will definitely tour with your organization again!

maryann, CROMWELL, CT, Dec 27, 2016

A nice tour with a very informative guide. He shared so much about San Francisco and never would have found out otherwise. The coach was a very nice shuttle vehicle. I think it was a good value for the price. And a great way to start our time in San Fran.

Brittany, Colchester, Vermont, Dec 19, 2016

Definitely worth it. Debated just renting a car and doing this ourselves while visiting but our driver was so informative and entertaining. I'd recommend doing that tour to anyone visiting the area.


The guide was really funny and informative and I enjoyed the tour.

Rebecca, San Diego, CA, Dec 9, 2016

Michael, Toledo, Ohio, Oct 9, 2016

5 Stars Great! Our tour guide was informative as well as entertaining. Best tour we took during our time in San Francisco.

Emma, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, Oct 4, 2016

Driver was very friendly and informative. The amount of time in the woods was good and the woods are beautiful.

, SAND LAKE, MI, Oct 3, 2016

We had a wonderful experience with the tour company, Tower Tours. The driver was very knowledgeable on the area and the ride up to Muir Woods was enjoyable. Upon returning, we had asked the driver for directions to the cable cars. He not only dropped us off after the tour, but also gave us good advice to avoid waiting in line for an hour and a half. As we only had one day to spend in the city, it was wonderful to have the tour guide give us great advice. I can't say enough good things about the tour company!

Tour Details

The best way to get to Muir Woods from San Francisco! 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.

Stay on board the bus as it travels on to picturesque Sausalito, once a fishing village and now a quaint bayside community with a Mediterranean appeal often compared to the French Riviera. Waterfront restaurants, boutiques and art galleries line Bridgeway Avenue, Sausalito’s downtown shopping district.

For those who want to sightsee & shop in Sausalito purchase the Muir Woods with ferry return package to disembark here and enjoy extended time on your. When ready, return to San Francisco by a 25-minute ferry ride. Note: Passengers on the Muir Woods only tour may also disembark in Sausalito and purchase a return ferry ticket at the dock.

*Muir Woods entrance fee is included in Muir Woods Tours.
