Giant Redwoods and San Francisco Bay Cruise
For a great way to spend a day exploring the areas near San Francisco, tour the ancient Muir Woods and the Mediterranean-style town of Sausalito. Then take a short cruise on the bay in this San Francisco half day tour.
Your tour outside San Francisco begins in an air-conditioned coach service, which will pick you up from your hotel. You will head to the Muir Woods to begin the day, traveling over the Golden Gate Bridge. If there is enough time and not too much fog, at the end of the bridge you will be able to take in the scenery from Vista Point and take photos before continuing on. You will travel past the coastal mountains to reach Muir Woods. Tour the maze of massive Redwood trees that tower over you. These trees are among the oldest and largest living things on the planet and are truly awe-inspiring. You will spend over an hour in this beautiful and peaceful forest.
From Muir Woods you will travel to perhaps the most scenic town in California, Sausalito. Tour this quaint town with a Mediterranean feel, filled with exquisite food and incredible little shops. Moving on from Sausalito, you will take a one-hour San Francisco cruise on the bay back to the city. You will get an up-close sightseeing experience of San Francisco's iconic structures. The fully narrated cruise will take you under the Golden Gate Bridge to see the workings of this massive structure. You'll also get a view of the island of Alcatraz and its iconic prison, as well as a chance to see some of the native California sea lions. Make sure to bring a camera, as these are memories you will want to hold on to forever.
Your tour will conclude when you are dropped back off at your hotel by your air-conditioned vehicle. This San Francisco tour is a perfect way to experience the area surrounding the city and its waterfront and will open your eyes to the natural and man-made beauty of Northern California.
