Snap some photos, or simply wander through the misty paths and marvel at these amazing giants.

Sample Itinerary

8:15-9:00am: Pick up from San Francisco hotels
9:00am – 10:15am: After pickup, head north across the Golden Gate Bridge, which offers sweeping views of San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz Island, and the city skyline. We wind through the coastal mountains of the Marin Headlands, past Mt. Tamalpais (the highest point in the North Bay region) on our way to Muir Woods National Monument.
Approx. 10:30am: Arrive at Muir Woods National Monument.
10:30am – 11:45am: The coastal redwood is the tallest tree species in the world. These trees only thrive in Northern California and Oregon, due to the thick fog that blankets the west coast in the summer months. In 1908, Senator William Kent and his wife donated their land to the state, and President Theodore Roosevelt designated it as a federally protected area. Muir Woods National Monument is the only surviving stand of old-growth redwood forest in the Bay Area. You will have 1 – 1 1/2 hours to wander amongst these towering giants. The sights, sounds, and smells of this living museum are sure to reconnect you with a natural world that was almost lost.
12:00-1:30pm: Reconnect with the guide and group, and begin your journey to the Sonoma Wine Country. Traveling north, you will see the beautiful valleys where fantastic wines have been produced since before California was a part of the Union. The landscape of rolling hills laced with rows of grapevines is impressive and provides a romantic backdrop for memorable photographs.
1:30pm: Stop for a picnic lunch at a winery (not included), or grab a bite in the historic Sonoma town square. In the town square (time permitting), you will have a chance to see the Mission San Francisco de Solano, the northernmost California mission, sample cheeses at Sonoma Jack’s Cheese Factory, and peruse the boutique shops of this quaint downtown.
2:30pm-5:00pm: Spend the afternoon wine tasting around the Sonoma Wine Country. Sample a variety of white, red, and dessert wines at wineries such as Homewood, Larson, Cline Cellars, and Robledo, among others (some tasting fees may apply).
5:00pm-6:00pm: A stop at the Golden Gate Bridge is a must-do if you’ve never witnessed the awe-inspiring view of San Francisco from the Marin Headlands.
6:00pm-6:30pm: End with a drop-off at your San Francisco hotel in time for dinner!

The Best Day

Our day on an Incredible Adventure with Will as our guide was the best day we spent in San Francisco. The tour was timed to avoid crowds so there were few tourists when we arrived at Muir Woods. Each winery we visited had excellent choices of wine to sample.
We never felt rushed during the tour, and all of our party felt we got excellent value for the money we paid for the tour. Will was an efficient driver who supplied just enough information about what we were seeing and doing. I also appreciated the use of ecologically sound buses.
I will definitely take another tour with Incredible Adventures the next time I’m in San Francisco and highly recommend it for others.

Great even without the wine!

Our tour guide, Cecilly, was truly delightful and knowledgeable. She was especially accommodating to us who joined the tour even though we were not drinking, and she made us feel just as welcome. Cecilly is quite an asset to your organization; and we will certainly recommend your tour company to our friends.

Such a Great Time

My friend and I took a tour to Sonoma and the Muir Woods on Tuesday and had such a great time! Paul was our guide and was definitely the reason why our trip was so fun! He did a great job with selecting the vineyards and getting feedback from everyone in the van, was really fun to hang with, and just an all-around great guy.
I would definitely choose Incredible Adventures again, based on what a great time we had with him.
Thanks again!
