    1. From San Francisco: Muir Woods and Sausalito Half-Day Trip

    After a pick-up from a central San Francisco hotel, head north over the bridge and into the Marin Headlands. If the fog is clear, you might get a chance to stop and take some pictures of the bridge up close.

    When you arrive in Muir Woods, take an hour and a half to roam through this ‘living museum’ where you can glimpse the towering trees that used to dominate the west coast from Santa Barbara to Washington.

    Following your exploration of Muir Woods, hop back in the coach for a quick ride over to Sau...

    Our tour guide/driver was Kimmy and she was awesome! Energetic, funny, and helpful, especially with taking pictures. She actually gave us a lot more information than the people at the wineries. One problem: the air conditioning on the bus didn't work well, so we were all sweating on the ride back to SF. The winery in Napa was ehh, but the 2 in Sonoma were good. Would've liked to spend an extra 15 minutes in Muir woods though.

    Our guide, Mike, was great. He was knowledgeable and nice. The only bad part of the trip was the bus ride. The suspension bottomed out many times and hurt my back. If the ride was smoother, it would have been a 5 star trip.

    We had a great time exploring Muir Woods. The drive up was a but unnerving, as I get really bad motion sickness and did not realize the roads were extremely winding. I wish this tour had been guided but it was nice being able to take our time and go at our own pace. When we got there and presented our tickets we were told the park was free that day, so maybe could have saved a little money but no big deal. Our driver was great and friendly.
