Get a taste of nature and a taste of wine in one trip north of San Francisco. Enjoy quality transportation & narration from a Bay Area born private guide with almost a decade of professional experience to Muir Woods & Wine Country. I hold a permit to park up close to the Muir Woods entrance, saving you valuable time walking in from the limited and remote public parking area. Located just 12 miles (19km) from San Francisco's city limits, Muir Woods makes a perfect quick getaway. Spend 1 1/4 hours walking among some of the tallest trees on earth.

It is only an hour drive from Muir woods to Carneros, the southern application of the Sonoma and Napa Valley. Visit distributed superstars or head to humble hand crafted family wineries. Chose your own pace. Have a quick visit at a few different tasting rooms or take it easy and relax with a bottle and views at two wineries. Both options can stop for Lunch in the charming Sonoma Town Square which has an assortment of restaurants and tasting rooms.


During the fire recovery, my tours to Sonoma and Napa will not run. Email me if you would like to visit the Santa Cruz Mountains wine region with a walk through Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. You may also enjoy the Giant Sequoias and Wine Tasting Tour in Gold Country.
