You won't want to go home

Part of the joy of San Francisco is the world class beauty that is just minutes away.
Depending on what you would like to see I can customize a San Francisco tour plus a tour of the area immediately north of the Golden Gate Bridge, Muir Woods 800 year old redwood forest, Sausalito and the Marin Headlands. Tour includes time for a meal at a fun restaurant.

The National Park Service has recently started a reservation system for Muir Woods.
Please let me know as far in advance as possible if you have a desire for this tour.

The beauty of the Marin County is unforgettable, breathtaking, and it starts right after you cross the bridge. We can mix the best of San Francisco with stunning views of the Pacific and Marin Headlands, whatever suits your fancy. You'll take photos that will amaze your friends.


We will split time between Muir Woods/Marin county sights, SF locations and a fun lunch place.

Muir Woods is a scenic 45 minute drive from San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge. Most people spend 45-75 minutes in the park.
The park path is a flat 1 mile loop. It takes about 20 minutes to emerge back into civilization from the park. So a trip to the park requires a 2 hour investment of your tour time.

From there I will show you jaw dropping views from a hill above the Golden Gate bridge, Sausalito, Rodeo beach and wherever we agree on.

Possibilities in San Francisco as time allows : Fishermans Wharf, Lombard St. , Golden Gate Park, Coit Tower, Chinatown, Italian neighborhood, Palace of Fine Arts, Presidio, Painted Ladies Victorian homes, SeaCliff and Pacific Heights mansions. I like to tailor the tour to your personal interests.

We can stop whenever you'd like to take photos or stretch.
