The Bay Cruise concludes at the Pier 39. Guest will have time to enjoy Fisherman's Wharf after the tour.

Muir Woods National Monument and the village of Sausalito are two of the most popular things to do north of San Francisco. This convenient tour from the city makes it easy to check off both from your list, plus take a San Francisco Bay cruise for even more photo ops.

Your morning starts with a drive across the Golden Gate Bridge, where you’ll stop to take in views from Vista Point on your way to Muir Woods. Enjoy ample time to walk along paths through the forest of old-growth coastal redwoods, known for being some of the oldest and tallest trees in the world.

Then head to Sausalito, a picturesque small town nestled between the Marin Headlands and San Francisco Bay on the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge. Take a walk on the waterfront, grab a snack (own expense) or check out the art galleries and shops. Once back in San Francisco, board your Bay Cruise departing from Pier 39.

Your narrated cruise takes you underneath the bridge (weather permitting) and past Alcatraz Island. Enjoy views of the city skyline and the local sea lions, and then end your tour with a drop-off at Pier 39.

The tour was an excellent...

The tour was an excellent way to see the beautiful Muir Woods and lovely Sausalito. The bay tour is flexible so we did that the next day.
Muir Woods is magical

The three activities were great, but Muir Woods is magical, you cannot miss the opportunity to visit this amazing place

The tour was very good, with the exception we were late for the Bay Cruise which we had to wait 5 hours and had to fill the time with something else but overall it’s really good!
Muir Woods/Sausalito/Bay Cruise
, Sep 2021
Everything about this tour was perfect! Great communication, awesome tour guide, timing, and even the weather! Thank you!
Enjoyable…but whew!
, Sep 2021
Great trip…but only take it if you are looking to get a lot done in a short amount of time. This is not an excursion for people who like to “dwaddle.” You leave on time and your stops at landmarks are 5-8 minutes. Muir Woods was 75 minutes and not a minute more. Salsalito was pretty but you could barely grab a quickly lunch or visit a shop or two before it was time to go back. The Bay Cruise is a must. So, while I actually enjoyed this and would recommend it, it is definitely not for anyone who has mobility issues or anyone who likes to stop and take their time and look at everything. You get off, you look, you take your picture and you keep it moving.
Awesome and complete experience
, Sep 2021
Awesome tour! Awesome guide! We learned a lot and had time at each place to get some great pictures and walk around. The tour guide was very specific about his knowledge as well as when we needed to be back. Definitely a great day tour!
Excellent tour
, Aug 2021
We had a very nice tour guide Archie. He did a great job giving us the history and highlights of all the areas we visited. Our pick up location was easy to find (Union Square area). The only thing we were disappointed about is that our bay tour that we were going to take at 2:00 had just changed the day of the tour to the next time of 5:00 (the hours Changed because the schools were back in Session). Other than the time change it was definitely the best way to see Muir Woods. Sit back and relax
, Aug 2021
Great bus driver! So informative and helpful! Would book again! Tour van was comfortable and the driver did a great job pointing out all the hot spots
Relaxing and informative and fun!
, Jul 2021
A friendly and knowledgeable driver, a comfortable bus, and we were off on a relaxing tour of Muir Woods and Sausalito. We got snippets of info about the Golden Gate Bridge, the redwoods and Sausalito, and anything else on the way there or back. What a great tour!
