Redwoods and Wine - 6.5 hour tour

Muir Woods is 20 minutes past the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge. The tallest tree is 259' tall and the trees are up to 800 years old.

Please note that Muir Woods National Monument does not allow tour guides inside the park but I give background information on the way. It is meant to be a sanctuary of quiet. The National Park Service has recently started a reservation system for visitors. Please let me know as soon as possible if you desire to visit the redwood forest.

After Muir Woods we will go to the Jacuzzi and Cline wineries and a fun lunch in Sonoma.
Wine tastings can take about 45 minutes.
