After a long flight from the east coast, we stopped at Muir Woods on our way up to Napa. This is one of those places that you remember for a lifetime and return to every time you are in the area. Don't miss it.

It was a truly awesome morning out in the spectacular Muir Woods with the wonderful, interesting, ever entertaining Tom! Easy booking, on time pick up and an early start to beat the crowds and you really do. You spend a few hours strolling the amazing woods with Tom providing expert commentary and laughs all the way. He provides a great... More

My husband and I booked a 3 1/2 hour tour with Tom Martell, a naturalist who has been giving walking tours for the last 25 years. He was so much fun and extremely knowledgeable about EVERYTHING... Never a dull moment. He picks you up at your hotel and drops you off at the Sausalito ferry. It's worth every penny as... More

The Muir Woods are a must stop for visitors in the area. The star attraction of the Muir Woods is the Coast Redwood, relatives of the Giant Sequoia and famous for their height. Most of the redwoods in the forest are between 500 and 800 years old. The oldest is at least 1,200 years old.

$7 for entry, kids under 15 free. Car park good but perhaps small for weekend traffic. Windy road takes you to this wondrous place. There are 4 bridge walks and one 2 hour ocean view walk. The bridge walks can all be done within 30-60mins. Along the way at times the silence is deafening. The majestic redwoods are stunning. You... More

The woods literally are as good as it gets. The walking trails are perfect. We arrived at 8pm which is the time that they close, but since there was no staff AND there was some daylight, we opted to enter the park. We walked a long ways into the trails and the trees are absolutely perfect. At times it was... More

If you are visiting san francisco this is must. Great walk with Tom who is so passionate about Muir Woods. He takes you out early and off the main tracks so you can really enjoy the tranquility of the forest. Highly recommend. As an added bonus we saw a spotted owl and a coyote!

Fabulous spot. Hop over the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito and take a bus trip to Muir Woods. A great day to wander amongst the majestic Redwood trees and enjoy natures finest.

It was a special sound and smell of the Forrest that must be explored. you can decide if you want to take a short walk or long walk, you decide how long you want to go, but it is good to have shoes that...

We went with 3 other couples and Tom picked us all up at our respective hotels, then we met one other couple at the entrance of Muir Woods. If you are late Tom will not wait! He has been doing the tour for over 2 decades and we couldn't imagine going for the first time without him. He informed me... More
