The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most beautiful and iconic landmarks in the world, but have you ever wondered what is on the other side north of San Francisco? This Muir Woods Tour takes you across the Golden Gate Bridge, into the picturesque coastal town of Sausalito and to the famous redwood trees of Muir Woods.
Enjoy a scenic ride through the Marina neighborhood of San Francisco before stopping at the Palace of Fine arts for a great photo opportunity. After travelling through the Presidio and past Crissy Fields, we cross the Golden Gate Bridge with stops on either side. If you would like, you may hop off and walk the 1.7 mile span. Feel the wind in your hair, smell the salt in the air and get the best view of the Bay and Alcatraz, Seacliff, Baker Beach, and the Marin Headlands.
After the north Vista Point, we head down to the beautiful coastal town of Sausalito for bay views, restaurants, galleries, and shopping. You may spend as long as you like in Sausalito or stop for lunch.
Following Sausalito, we wind up the scenic Highway 1 past Mt Tamalpais and through the hills and forests of Marin County. In Muir Woods National Monument, experience the breath taking size and beauty of California’s impressive coast redwoods. After as much time as you like in Muir Woods, head back to Sausalito whenever you're ready. Buses head to Sausalito every 30-60 minutes; depending on season and traffic.
One can acquire a different view of the bay by taking a ferry ride (included in your pass). The ferry will bring you right back to Fisherman's Wharf.
