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.

Itinerary

Example schedule only, exact time will be determined by assignment of a Muir Woods reservation by the park:
8:30am Hotel pickup
9:15 Arrive at Muir Woods
10:30 Depart Muir Woods
11:30 Arrive in Wine Country
12:45-2pm Free time for lunch
2-3:30 visit 1-2 more wineries
3:30 Depart for Golden Gate Bridge viewpoint
5pm Arrive in San Francisco

PLEASE UNDERSTAND:
By booking, you are requesting but are not guaranteed a Muir Woods reservation.
Muir Woods is switching to a reservation only policy for all on May 15. They had to do this because the facilities can not keep up with the growing popularity. Some days they have 7000 people competing for 150 parking spaces.
The process of securing a reservation begins when you book. If a reservation is not available within 2 days of your tour date, you will be notified and that time will be available in Wine Country. If you are not flexible with your departure time or do not like uncertainty, do not book any Muir Woods tours. Book the standard Wine Country only tour.
