  • San Francisco: Muir Woods Redwoods and Wine Country Tour

    1. San Francisco: Muir Woods Redwoods and Wine Country Tour

    See the giant sequoia trees at Muir Woods National Monument and discover California’s Wine Country on this San Francisco day trip with pickup. Walk in the shadows of the world’s tallest trees, before enjoying wine tastings at 3 wineries in the Sonoma and Napa valleys.

    After a pickup from your San Francisco hotel, your first stop is Muir Woods National Monument (entry tickets not included). Spend 1 hour hiking through the old-growth forest here to admire the famous coastal redwood trees. 

    Next up, continue onto Glen Ellen in the Sonoma Valley for your first wine tasting session. Learn all about the history and craft of winemaking as you tour the vineyard. Afterward, enjoy some free time to enjoy lunch (at your own expense) in Sonoma Plaza.

    In the afternoon you’ll savor 2 more tasting sessions at wineries in Napa and Schellvil...

    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.

Had such a great time on this tour!! Roman was great. He was very informative about each stop and even all the nature and history along the way. He was also extremely funny. He added a lot to the experience. If you’re booking, I would request Roman! Thanks Roman!

An amazing chance for a a day full of activity. It allows for a basic overview of San Fransiscio and the surrounding areas, while providing a great introductory wine tasting experience. The driver, Kimberly, was also very informative and entertaining.

The Muir Woods were awe-inspiring. The wineries we visited were beautiful, as well as having lovely wines. The tour guide was witty, full of interesting information and an excellent driver. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat!

Ben was extremely friendly, informational and a great overall guide. The tour it’s self was amazing! We really enjoyed tasting and learning about different wines and how they are made.
