Mostly great - more Muir and less Sausalito, please!

The good: Muir Woods is fabulously beautiful, and a treat after a few days in the city. Well worth the fairly short trip. It wasn't much colder than the city itself. Our driver, Mr. Chabli, was informative, attentive, and humorous. After the Woods, he was the highlight of the trip. The cafe was limited but had decent enough food, The two bookstores were standard (the one by the visitor center is much smaller) and the lines for the women's restroom were long (also, sadly, standard.) . The main trail is actually a wooden pathway, which makes it manageable for those with mobility concerns. The bad: Many of us on the tour noted that we'd rather spend more time at the Woods and skip Sausalito. The hour and 15 minutes went by so quickly and those who walked the longest trail sprinted to get back on time. I'd prefer a trip that used the time spent in Sausalito at Muir Woods. Keep the drop off in Sausalito for those who want to spend time there and catch the ferry back. The ugly: Representatives from both companies were very helpful in resolving the problem, but there was a major communication snafu when we were shuffled to another tour company (gray line) when the original tour was canceled. This would have been fine except gray line was told we would be on the 8 a.m tour and we were told we were on the 11 am tour, which had been sold out for several days. Luckily, there were no shows for the 11 tour and we got to go.

Muir Woods Worth the Trip

The only downside to this trip is the brief time you have in Muir Woods - it's 90 minutes in total. We did the more ambitious hike to the 4th bridge up the hill ridge trail, and to really experience the woods it is best to be able to stand/sit in the groves, and enjoy the silence. We had to really turn up the speed on the hike back to make it back to our transportation on time. The woods itself is breathtaking - a special place worth remembering, and the smell in the air is so fresh. One other small detail - our entrance to the National Monument of Muir Woods was NOT included with this tour price - it was $15 for an adult, no charge for kids under 16, it would have been good to have more clarity that the tickets were not inclusive of this. Another tip, the roads accessing Muir woods are narrow and very windy. If you are taking younger children who get motion sick, advise to take Gravol a half hour before the drive out. The shuttle driver was excellent, very professional, and gave a good overview of the area and also gave some narration in San Francisco. A great guide.

Bridge FOUR...great hike and you got to see all the highlights on that trail! You'll be happy to know that we've listened and now include the Muir Woods entry fee within the tour price. Thanks for all your good suggestions.

Worth it!

We learned that Muir Woods schedules visits as our pick up time was changed by a few hours. But the Viator driver and guide were very friendly. It was nice being a smaller group. My only complaint is with the bus layout itself as you are unable to look out the front window (unless you duck your head to be waist level), especially during the windy road to the woods. Overall I highly recommend and would do it again.

Thanks for your kind words. Next time let us host you in Yosemite or Monterey. Travel well.

It took a while for the van driver to pick up all the customers, but after that we were taken directly to Muir woods. Muir woods is naturally awesome! We spent an hour an a half there. We proceeded on to Sausalito where we were on our own to choose a restaurant for lunch. We chose the option of taking the ferry back to San Francisco which we enjoyed.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2019
This is exactly the sort of slow-paced morning that we had in mind when designing the tour. Taking the ferry back gives you the ability to customize the Sausalito portion to your liking (Lappert's ice cream...mmmm!).

Awesome trip - recommend!

We took the trip from San Fran to Muir Woods and to Sausalito for lunch. And our tour guide Roman was the best. He did such a good job narrating the trip, funny and accommodating to what the group wanted to see if we preferred something else. The time limits were good, perfect amount of time for lunch and some shopping. And the Muir Woods was beautiful, pictures couldn't capture it.

Roman is a kick! Glad you enjoyed the day. Let's do it again soon.

Beautiful redwood national park. Would have liked a longer amount of time to visit the forest. Felt rushed with 90 minutes to see all the sites.

Our tour guide was Kimberly. She highlighted many of the San Francisco attractions and was able to provide additional background information about them. Muir woods was amazing! We highly recommend this trip for anyone visiting the bay area.

Changement d’agence gérant l’excu La veille. Départ du bus à 11h alors que j’ai choisi un départ à 9h30. J’avais signalé une option pour des commentaires en langue française et il n’y en avait pas de toute l’an journee. Retour prévu à 16h mais le timing n’a pas été tenu. Par contre Muir Wood est très intéressant mais il faut y rester plus que 1h30 pour faire les randonnées
