Guests will be given two hours to explore and gaze up into the forest's canopy, surrounded by Coastal Redwood Sequoia trees and stroll along the mostly flat valley floor along Redwood Creek, or get an aerobic workout climbing the paths up the valley slopes to look out at the tops of some of the tallest trees in the world.

In the afternoon, your San Francisco tour starts with an exploration of the city’s top sights, from Union Square and Chinatown to Twin Peaks and Haight-Ashbury. See the neighborhood of North Beach, known for its Italian restaurants, and snap photos of Coit Tower. This tour is given by a local perspective. Tour guests enjoy more stops and photo opportunities on this San Francisco city tour as well as more time at each attraction.

If option selected, on the following day after touring San Francisco, hop on a Bay Cruise and ride along San Francisco Bay, offering incredible views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the stunning San Francisco skyline. Or, take a ferry to Sausalito, a beautiful, charming town on San Francisco Bay that stretches into the wooded hillsides. Sausalito is full of unique boutique shops and galleries showcasing artwork from local artists.

Please note: If guests choose the Bay Cruise option, the Bay Cruise will take place on the next day (departure time: open). If guests choose the ferry option to Sausalito, they will receive open tickets which they can use any time during their stay in San Francisco.

Muir Woods was very peaceful and well taken care of. The tour of the city was excellent and very informative. It covered all of the major tour sites. Learning about and seeing the different neighborhoods helped to better understand San Francisco.
