Muir Woods and Sausalito Tour plus Bay Cruise
From US$99.00
Check out several top San Francisco attractions on a 5.5-hour tour that combines visits to Muir Woods and Sausalito with a San Francisco Bay cruise. Drive across the Golden Gate Bridge, then walk among the ancient redwood trees at Muir Woods, without the hassle of parking at the popular destination. Stroll around the waterside town of Sausalito, and return to San Francisco to board your 1-hour bay cruise.
What to Expect
Start your tour with pickup from 478 Post Street, just off Union Square, then travel by bus across the Golden Gate Bridge. Stop at Vista Point for great photo ops, then continue to Muir Woods where your bus drops you off. Have about 75 minutes to walk among towering old-growth coastal redwoods, some of the tallest and oldest trees in the world.
After experiencing the natural wonders of Muir Woods, head to Sausalito, a town on the San Francisco Bay north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Have free time to walk on the waterfront, purchase a snack, or visit the art galleries and boutiques.
Return by bus to San Francisco, then board your boat at Pier 39 for the 1-hour bay cruise. Hear live narration on your cruise as you pass underneath the Golden Gate bridge (conditions permitting) and Alcatraz Island. Your tour ends with drop-off at Pier 41.
Please note: the order of activities can change, depending on the Muir Woods departure time, which won’t be confirmed until about a week before each tour.
