Escape the bustling city and explore a redwood forest before exploring scenic Sausalito during a Muir Woods & Sausalito Excursion!
Cross over the famous Golden Gate Bridge on your way to a primeval forest! See redwood trees over 200 feet tall and 1,000 years old! Walk along the picturesque trails and try to spot a black-tailed deer, gray fox, wild turkey, bobcat, or banana slug! Be sure to have your camera at the ready because these elusive creatures don’t stick around for long. You’ll have about two hours to explore this old-growth forest before continuing on your journey to beautiful, bayside Sausalito!

Sausalito is very enchanting; so, keep track of time and make sure you catch the last boat!

Golden Gate National Recreation Area now requires advance reservations for private vehicles wishing to utilize the parking areas at Muir Woods National Monument. For the rare event that commercial parking is not available at Muir Woods, we reserve the right to arrange an alternative destination for experiencing Giant Coastal Redwoods during your Muir Woods and Wine Country Tour. For this reason tour prices do not include Muir Woods National Monument entrance fee of $10 which must be paid on the day.
The photo-op stop at the Golden Gate Bridge is dependent on weather and traffic conditions.
