Itinerary

Pick Up at the Hotel
We leave your hotel through the city in a northerly direction where we will cross the Golden Gate Bridge to enjoy unforgettable views to share with your friends at home. After crossing the bridge we head to Sausalito where we will stop for a while.
Sausalito
Sausalito developed rapidly as a shipbuilding center during the Second World War, with its industrial character that gave way after the war to a reputation for a rich and artistic enclave, a picturesque residential community (which incorporates a large number of houseboats) and a tourist destination. The city is adjacent and largely bordered by the protected spaces of the Golden Gate national recreation area. From the quint village of Sausalito, enjoy views of the city of San Francisco and the bay, discover the Mediterranean atmosphere of the yacht harbor and stroll along Bridgeway Promenade with its art galleries, luxury boutiques and restaurants.
Muir Woods
After Sausalito, we visit one of the last and most spectacular coastal redwood forests (Sequoia Semper-virens) in California. The Muir Woods National Monument is an old growth coastal redwood forest. Due to its proximity to the Pacific Ocean, the forest is regularly shrouded in marine coastal fog, contributing to a humid environment that encourages vigorous plant growth. Fog is also vital for the growth of redwoods since they use the humidity of the mist during dry seasons, especially dry summer. In 2018, over 17.5 million visitors visited the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Muir Woods National Monument. During this tour, you will walk a path along the Redwood Creek River which offers a critical habitat for the reproduction and breeding of coho or silver salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) and steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss). Steelhead are listed as endangered species (2011) in the distinct population segment of the central California coast. Coho salmon are also listed as endangered in their significant evolutionary unit (2011). These trees can live up to 2,500 years and are among the tallest in the world. The incredible diversity of Muir Woods’ flora and fauna can be daunting at times, on other elusive occasions. The sequoias themselves dominate the scene. After entering the park, you will travel a path of about 1 mile (1.6 km). Round trip lasting about 45-60 minutes. This rare secular forest is full of trees over 600 years old. A meeting with a nature whose origins can be traced back to the Jurassic era. Plants adapt to low light levels on the forest floor, while plant communities and animals move in the canopy above our heads. The scenarios of this excursion will remain etched in your memory. Currently, parking is extremely limited and many often fill up early in the day. In early 2018, the county and the National Park Service introduced a reservation system that limits the number of vehicles that can enter and park each day. The National Park Service requires reservations made in advance for all vehicles and shuttle users, the $ 15.00 entrance fee per person is charged to gain entry to Muir Woods, commercial vehicle parking fees are $ 30.00.
Entry Fees
The tour includes entry fees, bridge tolls and parking.
Back to the Hotel
At the end of the tour, our guide will take you back to your hotel in San Francisco.
