Visit two of Northern California's most beautiful spots - the famous Muir Woods National Monument and the coastal town of Sausalito - at your own pace, staying as long as you want in either location! With frequent returns to San Francisco throughout the day you will enjoy a flexible, relaxing and fun filled day. The tour takes you along the Pacific Coast Highway providing breathtaking views of the coastal mountains near Mt. Tamalpais, the highest point in the Northern California Coast Ranges.
Muir Woods is home to Coast Redwoods, some of the world's tallest trees. With maps and guides in hand, take a short walk or a full day trek through these spectacular woods and take in the immense natural beauty. Set aside in 1908 as a federally protected area, Muir Woods National Monument is the only surviving stand of Old Growth forest in the Bay Area today. There are a number of paved walking trails where visitors can get a close look at the magnificent giants. Other unpaved walking trails lead up the hills to explore the area further. (Admission to Muir Woods included, $15 per person, kids are free).
Sausalito is located at the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge. A small Mediterranean-like village in Marin County, it is now home to some of the country's wealthiest citizens. Sausalito is a gorgeous destination that offers unique boutique shopping, art galleries, fabulous mansions, amazing food and breathtaking views of the bay.
If you would like to get dropped off in Sausalito on the way back, please let the driver know. Then enjoy a ferry ride back to San Francisco with beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the San Francisco skyline and Alcatraz Island (ferry ticket not included in your package).
