After a complimentary meet-and-greet at your hotel, your private tour guide will drive you in a luxury vehicle across the world famous Golden Gate Bridge where a photo stop will be scheduled at a spectacular overlook. You will get to step out and enjoy these awesome views of the City by the Bay and islands including Alcatraz. This vista point is one of the top spots where you can photograph the Golden Gate Bridge and gaze at San Francisco and Alcatraz. The Golden Gate Bridge was named for the strait leading from the Pacific Ocean to the San Francisco Bay.
Then we head from San Francisco to Muir Woods National Monument, a forest of redwoods that was established on January 9, 1908 by President Teddy Roosevelt. Visitors come from all over the world to pay homage to mother nature and these towering majestic redwood trees in the state tree of California. You will also see a wide range of other trees like California Buckeye, Bay Laurel, California big leaf maples, tall Douglas fir, redwood sorrel, ferns, fungi, duff, and debris. Several bridges cross Redwood Creek, which flows through the park year-round.
Take a stroll inside this pristine and ancient forest of giant redwood trees. There is very limited parking available in this small forest, so we drop you off at the entrance. We then take care of everything, including your entrance tickets to Muir Woods National Monument to save you the hassle and long waiting lines outside.
There is a Visitor Center, restrooms, a gift shop, and a café with daily hot food menus where you can have a snack or a drink, sandwiches, fresh fruits, salads, soups, organic pastries and muffins are made from local ingredients from neighboring organic farms.
Please note that there is no cellphone coverage in this steep canyon, but there is a public telephone you can use. The stop at Muir Woods may take from one to two hours,depending on the season, weather and road conditions. Muir Woods National Monument is a small forest, and ‘became victim’ of its increasing popularity due to its proximity to San Francisco. Millions go there every year to marvel at these ancient redwoods. Therefore, we highly recommend starting your tour at 8 am or even earlier, especially in summer and during holidays.
After your Muir Woods tour, your guide will drive you to Sausalito with a side trip to Muir Beach overlook – an amazing overlook located in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, south of Muir Woods forest. We may also take a hike on a steep and spectacular cliff side park located off California pacific highway, to enjoy stunning views of the Pacific Ocean side cliffs. This is a great overlook where locals come to view migrating whales. Muir Beach, a sheltered intimate cove, with its striking beauty of hanging cliffs and cottages sitting on a steep cliff side, can also be viewed from this vista point. We will visit this overlook when weather permits, as this can be subject to heavy fog and rain sometimes. Also, Muir Beach Overlook is not accessible to large vehicles (of 8 passengers or more like vans or buses).
We will now travel to the coastal town of Sausalito, perched on steep, wooded hillsides that give way to Marin County’s Richardson Ba. Sausalito is a small seaside town where visitors come to enjoy secular views of San Francisco Bay, San Francisco skyline and Alcatraz Island. Enjoy a break or take a stroll along rustic boutiques, restaurants and coffee shops. Afterwards, we will drive back to San Francisco through Marina District and Palace of Fine Arts, and we will escort you to Alcatraz ferry terminal locate located by the Fisherman’s Wharf. We will take care of redeeming your Alcatraz Island tickets and ferry vouchers on your behalf to save you the hassle and waiting in long lines in front of the Alcatraz booth.
