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

Great trip out of the city to the beautiful Muir Woods and Sausalito. There was plenty of time in each location. Guide was knowledgeable and shared some interesting things along the way. My teens (age 12, 14, 17) really enjoyed.

The bus was newer and comfortable and the guide knowledgeable. Muir woods was beautiful and a great start to the day. I could have spent less time in Sausalito but it was nice to see. I was very satisfied with this tour. Did not feel rushed.

We had a great tour. Our driver Jack, did a great job. The tour guide, David, was very knowledgeable about the areas along our route, historical events, and the Muir Woods. We wish we had taken a tour that allowed for more time in Muir Woods and Sausalito. One hour in each location is definitely too short. I would definitely take another tour with this company.

Hello Tim, thanks for your review and recommendation of Gray Line San Francisco for your next adventure in San Francisco. I will transmit your great review to our guide; he will be happy to hear it. For future customers, we would like to explain that tour operators are allowed to park in Muir Woods for a limited amount of time, so regretfully for us, we can't offer a long experience in the woods than the one we currently offer. Would you please let us know once you're back in the city so we can offer you another great adventure? :) Andrew Sales Manager Gray Line San Francisco
