Your Muir Woods Tour begins in your hotel lobby. You will be picked up at 7:30 AM, any day of the week or weekend, by private carrier. On the drive from your San Francisco hotel, take in spectacular Pacific Ocean & San Francisco Bay vistas. Your fully escorted walking tour will be on well maintained trails with easy grades, away from crowds, for three full hours. You will experience the rare morning serenity of an ancient redwood forest. The indiginous flora and fauna will unfold before you as you explore these peaceful woods in a way that isn't possible without Tom as your guide. See indigenous wildlife and enjoy conversation with Tom, a long standing Sierra Club leader. Absorb his rich knowledge of the flora & fauna of this unique ecosystem, the Redwoods themselves, Indian customs, park and local history and folklore. Tom is here to give you a glimpse into the life of the forest, not to steer you to the gift shop or hurry you along. Don't be shy, ask Tom any questions you like as you amble along the paths. He will astound you with his knowledge. Tom walks with you all the way through the park at your pace, pointing out every fascinating aspect and facet of the park and the magnificent Redwood trees that have survived here for hundreds of years. The walking tour covers 2 to 4 miles inside the Muir Woods forest, depending on your pace. This a very small group tour and Tom even provides drinking water, snacks and fruit juice. You and your party will be dropped off at the Sausalito Ferry, by private carrier, at the conclusion of your tour. Along the way you will see rolling hills, the town of Sausalito and more breathtaking San Francisco Bay vistas. The all inclusive fee of $75.00 also covers your Golden Gate Bridge Tolls and Park admission fees. There are no hidden extras! It really doesn't get better than this!

The drive to the park is an adventure, with the winding roads and incredible views. Once in the park, you are greeted by red woods of all ages and sizes. Some big enough to walk inside of. It was incredible!

Travel to Muir Woods has numerous hairpin curves, so unless you are an adrenaline junkie...take a bus. The majestic trees are a definate must see while in San Francisco. Bring a jacket as the dense shade is a bit nippy. Our tour guide from Extranomical Tours, Antony S. ( father from Sicily)was a great source of information and made us... More

Took a tour out of San Francisco with Grayline, it included a ride over Golden Gate Bridge & the driver gave us a lot of interesting information about the area! Loved the walk into the Redwoods grove! Amazing and beautiful to think they have been there for a 1000 years! So tall and so majestic! I could have spent another... More

Loved the walk through these majestic redwoods. The sights, sounds and smell is just awesome. There is a boardwalk to follow providing easy access to all. It is cooler through here so bring a warm jacket especially if early in the morning. I could have spent more time - loved it!

I booked a tour of Muir Woods with a Bay cruise. I didn't go on the tour because Viator didn't reply to my 3 emails requesting a time and location for pick up in San Francisco over a 2 day period prior to departure. Finally, the night before the tour Viator responded and told me that I must call the... More

If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city this is your place. Unimaginable peaceful walking and hiking trails await situated in a coastal Redwood forest. No sounds except a few birds chirping and the rush of the wind through giant redwoods well over 250 feet tall. I couldn't believe the serenity. The air was clean and... More

After a sleepless night this was a lovely, calming, magnificent place to visit with dear little chipmunks crossing the path every few minutes while being amazed by the forest of huge, thousand year old Californian red gum trees. A truly inspiring place to visit.

The shuttle bus ride from Sausalito was as spectacular as the woods themselves. High hills and great views as well as tree-draped narrow roads made the trip an event in itself. Muir Woods provided all that was advertised. Huge Redwoods, tree-lined pathways and if you go far enough (past the third bridge) quiet low traffic paths. This site was worth... More
