Cross the Golden Gate Bridge and enjoy a half-day tour of Muir Woods, Mill Valley, and Sausalito


Just 12 miles north of San Francisco are the giant redwood trees in Muir Woods. After the hike we'll visit Mill Valley (voted one of the Top 20 small towns in the US by Smithsonian magazine) and then later stroll the idyllic bay community of Sausalito with plenty of shops, restaurants, and art galleries.

Please note Muir Woods now requires vehicle reservations to drive into the park. Prior to accepting your booking request, I'll let you know the times available to visit Muir Woods if I can't get a reservation at your preferred time.

The National Park Service does not allow guides to lead tours in the park, so I will talk to you about Muir Woods during our drive but will let you stroll through the redwoods on your own.

Itinerary

Muir Woods is only 12 miles north of San Francisco yet feels like you're in another state. In the park you'll walk among the tallest trees in the world. After the hike we'll drive into Mill Valley which Smithsonian magazine lists as one of the Top 20 small towns in the United States. We'll finish in the idyllic bay village of Sausalito where you have the option of strolling among the restaurants, shops, and galleries and returning to San Francisco with me, or staying longer and returning to the city by ferry to Pier 41 at Fisherman's Wharf or the Ferry Building.

Meeting location: I will pick you up at your hotel, cruise ship port, or anywhere you'd like in San Francisco and Marin County.
