Avoid the hassle of making parking reservations—and the chaos of the parking lot at Muir Woods—with this tour that includes round-trip transportation from San Francisco. Leave the navigation to someone else as you relax on a comfortable ride to Muir Woods National Monument. You’ll explore the old-growth redwood forest before driving through Sausalito or stopping at the Golden Gate Bridge on your way back to the big city. 
What to Expect
This Muir Woods tour picks up from Fisherman’s Wharf, unless you’ve made other arrangements for pickup from your hotel or the airport.

Once you hop aboard your comfortable air-conditioned coach for the day, sit back and relax on your way over to the national monument. Take in views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the surrounding scenery. Your guide tells you all about the San Francisco Bay Area on your drive.

At Muir Woods, get dropped off right out front of the entrance and avoid the chaos of parking. Your admission ticket is also included. Spend time admiring the 1,000-year-old redwood trees that are native to California.

Afterward, on your return drive to San Francisco, pass through Sausalito for more views of the ocean. If you're on the 4:30pm tour, you'll skip the drive through Sausalito and stop at the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset instead. Your Muir Woods tour ends back at your departure point.

Served as "guinea pigs" for a new bus

If you think of this trip as paying $65 plus tip for transportation to Muir Woods for an hour, that would be appropriate. That's all this was. We served as "guinea pigs" for a new kind of tour bus. The rear half of the bus...More

The first part of the path from the parking lot is a fairly level wooden boardwalk with trails that fan out and up dirt paths. You could walk about a half mile to The Cathedral Grove and see the huge redwoods and ground... More

If I remember correctly this tour is at around 6 hours long. Very good tour. You see the Golden gate, lots of CA small towns, Muir Woods plus Muir Woods beach, Sausalito and then you ferry back to San Fran. Loved it!!
