Muir Woods National Monument is a must-see destination on any visit to the San Francisco Bay Area. Just a short drive across the Golden Gate Bridge, the protected nature reserve is home to one of the world’s last remaining coastal redwood forests. 

Choose from a morning or afternoon departure. Stop at a vista point for a fantastic perspective of the Golden Gate and Alcatraz, and wind through the rolling emerald hills of the Marin Headlands to arrive at Muir Woods. Stroll along forest paths surrounded by the giant redwood trees, some of which stretch as high as 250 feet (76 meters) and date back nearly 800 years. 

After Muir Woods, take a short drive to the artistic bayside village of Sausalito. Capture wonderful photos of the San Francisco skyline during a stroll along the waterfront, pop into one of the many art galleries and grab a cappuccino or ice cream at a local café (own expense).

Your tour concludes with drop-off at Union Square in San Francisco or choose the option of taking the ferry back to San Francisco from Sausalito.

Traveler Tips


  • "Parking at Muir Woods is so limited (and requires a timed permit) that the tour bus is the best way to go." See review
  • "Parking at Muir is poor so this one combined with the ferry return is a nice half day ending up at Fisherman’s Wharf." See review
  • "Just be prepared that the road to get there is really curvy, so if you get carsick, be sure to take motion sickness tablets before going." See review

Must see Beautiful coastal redwoods

Muir woods is beautiful. Lush and green. We hiked and took spectacular pictures, none do justice to actually seeing it in person. The Coastal redwoods are amazing...they grow in family units and are extremely tall. Would highly recommend for all levels of fitness. Its spectacular! Sausalito is a quaint sailing coastal community a short jaunt over the Golden gate bridge.

Easy departure to get to and from the tour. Our tour guide was awesome! Very informative, friendly, and knowledgeable about San Francisco and the sights. Muir Woods was stunning! We are so happy we booked this tour as we have never been here and we’re amazed by the sights. Ample time to walk around and explore. We stopped by Sausalito which is a beautiful and charming town. It was the right amount of time to walk around, get a quick bite, and then depart. Would definitely recommend this tour as a must see while in SF!

Yes, it is hard to put in words what one experiences once you step into Muir Woods National Monument. Being under the canopy of the trees is enough to slow the busiest person down. Thank you for the excellent rating! Take care and come back! Michael
