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!

Wonderful trip. Our driver was not only a very skilled driver, but quite entertaining as well. Couldn't have asked for a better time.

Joseph, Avon., CT, Dec 12, 2018

We had a wonderful time on our visit to Muir Woods and Sausalito with Guide You. Our driver, Aaron, was great, full of information and amusing stories. We would highly recommend your company and look forward to other tours in the future.

Stanley, John Day, OR, Nov 24, 2018

We enjoyed the unique Redwood trees so close to San Francisco. We also enjoyed the commentary by the bus driver. The ride back to San Francisco from Sausalito was a treat.

Anjun, International, Int., Nov 21, 2018

Great trip and driver Erin was par excellence.

Miri, Beer Sheva, Israel, Oct 10, 2018

The Muir wood is great, wish I had more time to explore Driver/guide did not stop talking for even a moment, talked about uninteresting facts, did not relate a lot of important information

Debra, Detroit, MI, Sep 18, 2018

The details contained in the confirmation email were spelled out clearly. I was very pleased with the attention to details on this tour! The experience was fun and the other participants were very friendly! Willie was an outstanding driver and tour director! He was very upbeat, well versed and answered all our questions. He was very accommodating and kept us on schedule.

Valarie, Calgary, Alberta, Sep 10, 2018

Our driver Aaron was outstanding as was the tour!

Linda, Oakdale, MN, Aug 22, 2018

I enjoyed the bus ride. The bus was very comfortable and the driver was very informative. The walk-through the wood was wonderful. I was disappointed with some the other visitors at the park. There were a few who were very noisy and made parts of the park unejoyable. Sausalito was a fun little town. The bus driver gave us a history of the town and suggested a few places to visit. That helped us enjoy it more. I would definitely take one of the tours again and would recommend it to my friends.

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.
