Overview

Muir Woods Tour with Sonoma Wine Tastings

If you like a splash of wine country with your expedition through the Bay Area’s only old-growth redwood forest, you’re in luck! Traverse through two of California’s unique landscapes with one trip in a unique tour that combines nature and culture.

After a beautiful panoramic view of the San Francisco skyline, Alcatraz, and the boat speckled bay, you’ll pass through the beautiful Marin Headlands on your way to Muir Woods National Monument. You’ll spend over an hour and a half wandering through the Coastal Redwoods, which are among some of the tallest trees in the world.

Once we’ve had our fill of these gentle giants we’ll continuing north, stopping to buy a quick lunch in the historic Sonoma Town Square. Next you’ll enjoy an expertly curated tour of several wineries where you’ll get an all-inclusive set of tastings and views of the serene rolling hills of the Sonoma landscape.

Itinerary

Morning – Muir Woods National Monument

8:15 – 9:00am: We’ll embark on this journey from the prearranged hotel pick-up locations. (Pro tip: arrive 10-15 minutes early!)

9:00 – 10:15am:  From the cozy vantage of your mini-coach, you’ll take in panoramic scenes that span from the city skyline, to Alcatraz Island, and across the boat-speckled bay; catching glimpses of scenes that have inspired countless authors, poets, and artists. We’ll take the winding coastal mountain path of the Marin Headlands where you’ll see the base of Mt. Tamalpais (the highest point in the North Bay region) before we arrive in the cool shade of the Coastal Redwoods in the Muir Woods National Monument.

10:30 – 11:45am: Are you ready to feel small next to a redwood? You’ll step off the mini-shuttle into a wonderland of greenery, where you’ll have an hour to an hour and a half to wander along the path among the tallest species of tree in the world. Muir Woods is the only surviving stand of old-growth forest in the Bay Area. Wandering 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 forever.

Afternoon – Wine Tasting in Sonoma County

12:00 – 1:30pm: We’ll break from the immersive sensory tour of Muir Woods to begin our journey into Sonoma Wine Country. As we make our way north, your guide will give you a brief history of the land where exceptional wines have been produced since before California was a part of the Union. The landscape of rolling hills laced with rows of grapevines has served as inspiration for many renowned artists.

1:30pm: Next, we’ll make a quick stop for lunch in the Sonoma’s historic town square. You can choose to pack a lunch or purchase a bite to eat in town. If there’s time, we can even meander through Mission San Francisco de Solano, sample cheeses at Sonoma Jack’s Cheese Factory, and peruse the boutique shops of this quaint town square.

2:30 – 5:00pm: Now is the time to kick back, practice your wine-swill technique, and enjoy the incredible selection of wines offered by our expert selection of winerys. Our friendly hosts will take us through a variety of white, red, and dessert wines at wineries such as Homewood, Larson, Peter Cellars, and Robledo, among others. While each winery offers a selection of tastings included in this package, additional tasting fees may apply if you’re hankering to try a selection not on the tasting menu.

5:00 – 6:30pm Once you’re cozy from all the wine-tasting your heart desires, we’ll set our course back toward San Francisco making a brief stop in the charming city of Sausalito, which offers another gorgeous view of the city skyline. Have you been waiting for that iconic Golden Gate Bridge photo op? Wait no longer! Our final stop will be to stop and take in the awe-inspiring views from the bridge, which contrary to popular belief, is named for the Golden Gate Strait which is the entrance to the San Francisco Bay from the Pacific Ocean.

6:30pm We’ll end the day with a drop-off at your San Francisco hotel with plenty of time to find a nice spot to grab dinner.

Perfect Combo of Nature and Culture

“This was an excellent full day tour. Just the right combination of nature and culture. The bus was first rate and very comfortable. What really made the trip was the excellent driver/tour guide. Sarah was absolutely excellent!”

Excellent Value

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.
