Overview

The tour departs from Fisherman's Wharf  with a knowledgeable guide. Relax in comfortable seats and enjoy the scenic views while your tour guide shares fun and informative facts along the way. You will cross the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and have breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay. The tour continues along the Pacific Coast Highway, providing stunning views of the coastal mountains near Mt. Tamalpais, the highest point in the Northern California Coast Ranges, and then heading further to Muir Woods National Monument.

Muir Woods is home to Coast Redwoods, some of the world's tallest trees. With maps in hand, take a walk through these spectacular woods and take in the immense natural beauty. Set aside in 1908 as a federally protected area, Muir Woods National Monument is the only surviving stand of Old Growth forest in the Bay Area today. There are a number of paved walking trails where visitors can get a close look at the magnificent giants. Other unpaved walking trails lead up the hills to explore the area further.  (Admission to Muir Woods included, $15 per person)

After 1.5 hours in Muir Woods your tour takes you to charming Sausalito - a small Mediterranean-like village in Marin County, home to some of the country's wealthiest citizens. Sausalito is a gorgeous destination that offers unique boutique shopping, art galleries, fabulous mansions, amazing food and breathtaking views of the bay.

If you wish to spend time in Sausalito, you can get dropped off there and can enjoy a ferry ride back to San Francisco with beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco skyline as well Alcatraz Island (ferry tickets not included).

Great tour! Highly recommend taking this tour vs. trying to drive yourself. After gas, tolls, parking headaches, etc. it's better to sit back and relax taking in the amazing views! Ask for Jimmy, super guy and loves his city! Very knowledgeable and just the nicest guy!

The amazing beauty of nature surrounds you at Muir Woods...while the power of man's invention is apparent as you cross the golden gate bridge! The ONLY hiccup with this trip was with Cool Destinations itself. You see, they sub contract out to other companies, in this case, City Sightseeing. When we got to their office, they said they were not running the tour this day...imagine my surprise. One of the gals at the counter just blamed Cool Destinations and did nothing...the other quickly called Grey Lines, who were running the same tour. We took a frantic cab ride back across town to meet that bus. THANK YOU GREY LINES for being so nice to fix this mistake!!! They saved the day...the attraction was terrific. The service by Cool Destinations and City Sightseeing very sketchy.

Our tour guide was fantastic. He was very informative about the area leading to as well as the woods themselves. These woods are so pristine, gorgeous, awe inspiring, massive and serine. We had about 2 hours to walk around and take pictures and take in the beauty. We left the woods and then drove through Sausalito which is both beautiful and a shoppers paradise. We did not get off the bus as we had another engagement. Highly recommend this excursion.

I highly recommend going to Muir Woods when in San Francisco it is a chance to see trees that lived in the time of Christ and through the total history of America.

Muir Woods is awesome, tranquil and majestic. The hop-on hop-off bus was very convenient. The drive to/from the woods was a bit harrowing... the roads are narrow, twisty and challenging so I was thankful someone else was doing the driving.
Sausalito is very cute with great restaurants and shops.
