  • Overview & Itinerary


    This excellent package gives you the chance to travel outside San Francisco to see the beautiful countryside and charming towns beyond the city limits.

    Choose the basic tour and you can marvel at the mighty trees of Muir Woods, visit the delightful seaside settlement of Sausalito and admire the mansions of upscale Marin county.

    If you have more time, you could take an extended tour, adds a relaxing cruise in San Francisco Bay to the Muir Woods and Sausalito excursion.


    There are two options for your tour of San Francisco and its surroundings: Muir Woods and Sausalito Tour and Muir Woods and Sausalito with Bay Cruise.

    Muir Woods and Sausalito Tour:
    At the start of the day, a shuttle will pick you up from your San Francisco hotel (remember to call the activity operator 24 hours ahead to confirm pick-up) and take you to tour center to board your coach.

    You will drive out of town and through Marin County, one of America’s wealthiest areas, where you can admire the beautiful mansions set in immaculate gardens.

    You will arrive at Muir Woods National Forest, one of the last remaining stands of Coast Redwoods. Among nature’s grandest creations, the sky-piercing giants in this forest can grow to almost 260 feet and live for more than 1,000 years. Walk through the cool green trails and gaze up at the towering trees. Many of them will be around 45 times as tall as you are!

    Travel to the seaside town of Sausalito, where hillsides grade gracefully to an attractive shoreline and the breathtaking Golden Gate Bridge takes shape in the distance. Cliff-hanging cottages and luxurious houseboats give Sausalito a Mediterranean flavor, but the art galleries, shops and inhabitants have an unmistakably Californian character.

    Muir Woods and Sausalito with Bay Cruise:
    This enjoyable tour combines the Muir Woods and Sausalito excursion with a relaxing 1-hour narrated cruise in San Francisco Bay. This will take you under the magnificent Golden Gate Bridge and around bleak Alcatraz Island, former fortress and state penitentiary. As you sail along, a knowledgeable guide will tell you about the history, architecture, and natural wonders of the area.
