Everything was great. Just wish that we could have used the Sausalito tour and night tour outside of the 2 day pass. Response: Tower Tours Muir Woods and Sausalito is a 1 day tour. I believe you have the 2-day pass Sausalito & Night Tour mixed up as that is a Big Bus Tour

Jennifer, San Francisco, CA, Sep 26, 2019

Had a nice day

Sally, Naples, FL, Aug 21, 2019

This was a super tour at a great price! The route is very scenic and we really enjoyed the time for an overview of Muir Woods, our time exploring Sausalito and having lunch there, and the ferry ride back to San Francisco.

Deborah, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, Aug 14, 2019

A fantastic day out. Being collected at the hotel was a wonderful start. The driver was entertaining and very knowledgeable. Muir Woods is a stunning place, we would have happily spent a whole day there. Sausalito was a beautiful place to visit on the way back. And we thoroughly enjoyed the views from the ferry on the way back. It was our favourite day of our stay in San Francisco.Thank you

It was a lot of fun and what a great deal!!

Patty, Missoula, MT, Jul 31, 2019

This was a fabulous tour! Our Tour guide Aaron was so knowledgeable about San Francisco and the Muir Woods. He was a safe driver yet talked all time about what we were seeing and the history of the city The woods were amazing! Can’t recommend it enough! Would love to go again!

Steinar Inge, Vossestrand, Hordaland, Jul 25, 2019

Trip to Muir wood, Sausalito and ferry back was a great trip. Downside was conflicting infofmation between the confirmation regarding pick up point in emails received from and who did the actual tour. Tried contacting but still no reply regarding pick up point, 1 week after the trip.

Clay, Fayetteville, Arkansas, Jun 5, 2019

Great tour. Muir Woods is awesome and Salsalito is a cool little bay town. Our tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. Would only suggest that the ticketing line/procedure at the pier be improved to streamline it.

Bo, San Juan, PR, Apr 28, 2019

Very good tour. We were picked up at the hotel on time. Our tour guide gave very good information during the tour.

Mitja, Houston, TX, Mar 25, 2019

We loved the tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and the history was wonderful. We would recommend this to anyone visiting San Francisco!


We highly recommend you take this tour if its your first time (or not) to San Francisco! We in Alaska have the most gorgeous views of nature but stepping into the Muir Redwoods was breathtaking. My husband and I were so thankful we chose this as part of our adventure here in San Francisco. Our tour guide, Allan (sp?) was fantastic and highly recommended. He has so much knowledge of the entire tour and humorous as well! Sausalito was a quaint seaside town with numerous restaurants to dine at from $-$$$ and the ferry ride back to San Francisco was great and like I said, this was worth every dollar spent.

Brian, Hueytown, AL, Feb 21, 2019

Tour was really great. Muir Wood was beautiful and the ferry ride back was a great way to see the bridge and Alcatraz. The guide was very knowledgeable and informative. My only complaint would be that the guide doesn’t have to talk the WHOLE ride.

Jenci, Chicago, IL, Feb 13, 2019

Had the best time with our tour guide h was very knowledgeable and hilarious! I felt like I really got to know about the other of San Francisco and the surrounding area! Thank you so much for a fantastic trip!

Please also note the 2pm tour will get you into Sausalito about 30 minutes before the last ferry at 5:35 Monday-Friday. Weekends you have much more time. See schedule below.

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 coach 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 Mediterranean style 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 (55 Minute •*). This adds a fantastic bay cruise back to SF's 41, past Alcatraz and some ferries stop in Tiburon and Angel Island to load passengers.

*$15 Entrance fee for Muir Woods is included!
