Muir Woods National Monument tour: Hotel pickup in San Francisco starts early for the drive north across the Golden Gate Bridge, meaning you’ll reach Muir Woods before many other tours arrive. On your way out of the city, see the Palace of Fine Arts and the Presidio.

Muir Woods National Monument is home to a pristine forest of California coastal redwoods, which are some of the planet’s tallest and oldest trees with heights that can reach 250 feet (76 meters). You have some time here to wander through the grove of giant sequoias and cross over mossy streams. Your guide will tell you about the local vegetation and wildlife along the nature trail. Then return to the tour vehicle for the drive further north into wine country.

Wine country tour: When you reach your first winery in Sonoma County’s Carneros region, you can explore the grounds, enjoy photo ops of the vineyard and sample a variety of wines in a welcoming atmosphere. For lunch, guests can choose one of two lunch options. The first is to venture out on their own and try one of the many cafés and restaurants located in the plaza. The second option is to upgrade their wine country experience to the next level with a private seated gourmet food and wine pairing experience at a local restaurant. They will enjoy delicious local food paired with a collection of California wines. After being greeted with Sonoma Valley cheeses and sparkling wine, guests may select a course such as minestrone Soup with navy beans and vegetables, pasta with either a beef and pork sauce or arugula-almond pesto sauce or grilled salmon with seasonal vegetables and balsamic reduction. Afterward, continue your tour to your second and third wineries in Sonoma County or Napa County for more tastings. Enjoy a leisurely stop at each winery, and you’ll have the chance to taste 3 to 5 wines of different varietals, from white to red to sparkling. Tasting fees are included, and you may purchase bottles not available in retail stores to take home. See below for a sample of wineries you may visit.
 
Your day trip ends with the drive back across the Golden Gate Bridge. Admire views of the vast Pacific and the rugged coastline before hotel drop-off.

Redwoods & Wine Country Escape with Gourmet Food & Wine Pairing upgrade: Discover Muir Woods National Monument, Sonoma & Napa Valley in 1 Day and enjoy an exclusive three-course gourmet meal and wine pairing. (Lunch for children not included in the rate and needs to get paid at the restaurant).

NOTE: Tastings are usually held at Kieu Hoang Winery, Muscardini Cellars and Mayo Family Winery, but locations are subject to change, depending on availability.

Kimmy was our Tour Guide and she was excellent! She picked me up on time and was welcoming from the moment I boarded the bus. She was concerned about our safety and that remained her priority throughout the trip. I learned so much on the tour about San Francisco, Napa valley and Sonoma from Kimmy. The VIP luncheon was great and the atmosphere was warm and I was truly able to celebrate my birthday. I highly recommend this tour…especially with Kimmy as the guide!!!

The trip was made by great by our excellent guide/driver, Kimmy. She's kind, personable and funny. She's also very knowledgeable about wine and the region. The winery experience was also very good! The wineries were different enough to make it worth visiting them all. Muir Woods is a dreamland. This was a great experience. There are lots of lunch options. That isn't clear when you're making your reservation. I'd encourage you to consider your options. The VIP lunch was good but not great. Overall, a great experience. You won't regret it at all.

It was perfectly timed. We feel we spent just enough time in each location. Being able to go to Muir and three wineries on top of transpo, lunch, and entertainment including Dustin’s suggestions and commentary too is quite a steal. Highly recommend!

Climate was too cold and rainy so the experience walking in the woods was extremely limited, while it could have being great. The bus in general was not confortable, it was a truck converted to coach and the windows were totally fogged and it was imposible to look outside and to appreciate what the tour guide keep mentining. The second winery was not such a great experience as the other two. To whoever may want to take this tour, I recommend not to pay the extra for the lunch.

Excellent tour for our first time in San Francisco. What a beautiful experience seeing nature, tasting wine and seeing SF’s most iconic bridge. We loved Kimmy and hope she gets a raise soon!

Awesome after tour of the redwoods and wine country with our Guide Kimmy. She's the star in this tour.*****

I want to call this tour a contrast between the old and the new: Muir woods was the first National Monument created solely to protect redwoods, some are over 150 years old, from the logging industry. Imagine what would become of the redwoods if this was not done. Although the Wine country began with Spanish missionaries, it is now famed for its wineries, cuisine, restaurants, boutique hotels, and everything hip, chic and elegant, a now thing!

How wonderfully thoughtful of you! Thanks for these inspirational words and for joining our tour.

The tour guide Angelo was very informative and personable. The weather could have been better but I know that is something you can’t control. I would recommend not doing the tour in December. Choose a better month.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
Thanks for your review. The wine country has four seasons and while some may prefer the warmth of summer, the winter is far less crowded and "chill" in the Valley. Take you pick, we go every day.
