    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: Palace of Fine Arts Theatre, 3301 Lyon Street, San Francisco, CA 94123-1002

    The Palace of Fine Arts in the Marina District of San Francisco, California, is a monumental structure originally constructed for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition in order to exhibit works of art presented there.

    Stop At: Golden Gate Bridge, US-101, San Francisco, CA 94129

    Photo stop overlooking bridge and city. The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the one-mile-wide (1.6 km) strait connecting San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Pass By: San Francisco Bay, San Francisco, CA

    San Francisco Bay is a shallow estuary in the US state of California. It is surrounded by a contiguous region known as the San Francisco Bay Area (often simply "the Bay Area"), and is dominated by the large cities of San Jose, San Francisco and Oakland.

    Pass By: Marin Headlands, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, CA 94965

    A hilly peninsula at the southernmost end of Marin County, located just north of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge, which connects the two counties and peninsulas. Part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and famous for their views of the Bay Area, especially of the Golden Gate Bridge.

    Stop At: Muir Woods National Monument, 1 Muir Woods Rd, Mill Valley, CA 94941-4205

    Known for its towering old-growth redwood trees. Trails wind among the trees to Cathedral Grove and Bohemian Grove, and along Redwood Creek. The primeval home to old growth Coastal Redwoods, some at least 1,200 years old. The tallest is 258 feet high. We optimize the time you spend on the trails of Coastal Redwoods by arriving before the crowds. You’ll spend 1.5 hours (or more!) enjoying California’s native flora and fauna, taking in giant ferns, moss-lined creeks, fresh bay leaf-scented air from the many Laurel trees and squirrels, blue jays and deer if you’re lucky.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Muir Woods Visitor Center, 1 Muir Woods Rd, Mill Valley, CA 94941, USA

    The Muir Woods Visitors Center (1 Muir Woods Rd., daily 8am-close, closing hours vary) abuts the main parking area and marks the entrance to Muir Woods.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: sausalito Home Boats, 47 S Forty Pier Marinship, Sausalito, CA 94965-1398

    Lunch Stop in Sausalito. Sausalito is a city in Marin County across the Golden Gate Strait from San Francisco, known for its Richardson Bay houseboat enclaves, built by artist squatters after WWII. The Sausalito floating home community consists of more than 400 houseboats.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    I’m not sure. But your are better off using your own vehicle if u are bringing your pet. The bus is like a school bus, not luxury coach hence space is tight
