Take time out from San Francisco on a half-day trip to Muir Woods National Park and Sausalito.

This enthralling half-day trip takes you across the Golden Gate Bridge to the Bay Area's most popular National Park Monument to experience the magnificent views of the Giant redwoods during a 90' stop (entrance fee included).

Next, visit the beautiful coastal town of Sausalito, a gorgeous Mediterranean-style village with quaint shops and waterfront restaurants. If a one-hour stop in Sausalito isn't enough for you, you can extend your stay by upgrading your tour to include the Sausalito ferry back to San Francisco.

If you decide to come back by bus and are looking for possibilities to complete your other half-day, we offer you an upgraded option to save money, which includes a 4h Bike rental package from our partner Unlimited Biking (757 Beach Street, San Francisco, CA 94109). Fall in love with all San Francisco has to offer as you pedal around and explore the area at your own pace.


  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure
  • Tour is wheelchair accessible
  • All entrance fees included

Knowledgeable guide without coming off as a know it all. Catered to the group as much as possible. Wonderful!

We loved walking in the woods - had plenty of time and options for length of stroll through the giants. Had a great tour guide and the stop at the bridge was nice. The ferry ride from Sausilito was nice, too.

We really enjoyed our bus trip from San Francisco to Muir Woods and Sausalito. The bus made getting to Muir Woods easy and the guide was great and offered helpful and interesting commentary on the bus rides. Muir Woods was extraordinary and we are so glad we made this visit during our trip.

Great tour and beautiful Muir Woods!! Tour guide John was very knowledgeable and friendly. Wish we had more time to spend in Sausalito but we had to get back.

Our tour guide was AMAZING! He was friendly, witty, kind and funny! You could tell that he loves his job and is passionate about San Francisco area and its history. If every tour guide was like him, I’d be taking tours all the time!

The woods were beautiful, the weather was perfect. Archie was great, he ruined us for other tours. He was informative, knowledgeable, fun and humorous.

Our bus driver was very knowledgeable. We were able to stop to take pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge. The walk through Muir Woods was magical! We even got to see a banana slug! The time in Sausalito was fun!

Joe was an excellent driver. I am amazed on how he got around all those curves so expertly. He was very knowledgeable, and told me stuff I didn't know about San Francisco
