Day 1 San Francisco-Sausalito-San Francisco(20 miles)

After hotel pick ups in the morning, we are cruising by the parks and attractions along the San Francisco Embarcadero and we will then disembark at the Ferry Building (today it's a bustling food court) where guests can load up on San Francisco originals - coffee, chocolate, sour dough breads, pastries and more!

After passing by San Francisco's famous piers (including Pier 39 - Alcatraz Landing) the tour will head north to Muir Woods. Along the way, we'll make a stop for that all-important photo of the Golden Gate Bridge. After spending time in Muir Woods, we head over to the picturesque town of Sausalito - spending enough time there to grab lunch or visit the many shops and galleries. The tour will then end in San Francisco, at the Hotel Zephyr - 250 Beach Street which is in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf. Guests can continue exploring this historically important area of San Francisco.

At the end of the day, we will return to the departure points for dropoff. See "Depature and Return Details" for more information.

San Francisco, the heart of central California's Bay Area, is famous for its iconic Golden Gate Bridge, its unique culture, and its position at the forefront of technological innovation. Beautiful weather and waterfront views await visitors as well!

We toured Muir Woods and Sausalito with tour guide Jim. The sites were great and pick up at our hotel was prompt and an awesome service; however, one of the participants did not show on time and we lost a half an hour waiting for them to catch up to the tour. Jim's driving was very good and his stories were engaging. We booked a second tour based on our good experience

Our shuttle bus was 15 minutes late. However, after that, the tour was great! Our guide, Robin, was super friendly and knowledgeable. We had two hours to explore Muir Woods, which was more than we expected (and much longer than we saw any other tour company advertise).

I recommend this tour!

Wonderful trip. Our driver, Constantine, was very friendly and incredibly informative about the city and our tour destination, Muir Woods. Well worth the money!

Too expensive for what it was. Not much history or stories, really just a ride to the Muir Woods. Guide was nice but there was not much to it. Really just a ride to the site.

I recommend this tour!

Muir Woods: If your an outdoorsie person- this is a trip for you! Ride to the area a little rough as there are many sharp turns on a one way (each way) road. If your sensitive to this type of drive would recommend an antiemetic for motion sickness. Otherwise, excellent opportunity for phenomenal nature pics. Jim, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and helpful in guiding us on the "to do's" in San Fran.

I recommend this tour!

Robin was a fantastic guide for our tour! He was very knowledgeable and fun to listen to! In just a few hours we got to see some spectacular sites... a great view of the Golden Gate and Muir Woods were our favorite! Sausalito was ok too, but would have liked to spend that time more at a park near the Golden Gate. It's a perfect way to see and learn about the famous parts of San Francisco! Definitely recommend it!

The van was clean and had a high ceiling so quite spacious. constantine was polite and funny. the trip up and down to muir woods can make you a little car sick so make sure you take your medicated oils/ meds if necessary. muir woods was beautiful and the stop on the way to take pics was perfect. the tour is timed to miss the crowds so that is superb. Suggest to stop off at Sausalito if you can!
