    Ending Point

    Same as the start point 

    If you wish you can stay in Sausalito and get the ferry back to San Francisco (not included in the tour cost)


    At the start of the day, make your way to the mentioned meeting point. 

    You will drive out of town and through Marin County, one of America’s wealthiest areas, where you can admire the beautiful mansions set in immaculate gardens.

    You will arrive at Muir Woods National Forest, one of the last remaining stands of Coast Redwoods. Among nature’s grandest creations, the sky-piercing giants in this forest can grow to almost 260 feet and live for more than 1,000 years. Walk through the cool green trails and gaze up at the towering trees. Many of them will be around 45 times as tall as you are!

    Travel to the seaside town of Sausalito, where hillsides grade gracefully to an attractive shoreline and the breathtaking Golden Gate Bridge takes shape in the distance. Cliff-hanging cottages and luxurious houseboats give Sausalito a Mediterranean flavor, but the art galleries, shops and inhabitants have an unmistakably Californian character.

    From here you have 3 options:

    1. Stay in Sausalito and get the ferry back to San Francisco.  The ferry fee must be paid at your own expense. 

    2. Travel back to San Francisco with the tour group and end the tour in San Francisco 

    3. Travel back to San Francisco with the tour group and join a Bay Cruise

    Option 3 is only available if you choose the morning departure.
