Overview

Muir Woods Tour with Sonoma Wine Tastings

How can a Muir Woods tour be better? Combine it with a Sonoma Wine Country tour! Experience this perfect mixture of nature and culture.

You’ll begin your day by crossing the Golden Gate Bridge and passing through the beautiful Marin Headlands on your way to Muir Woods National Monument. There you’ll spend over an hour strolling among some of the tallest trees in the world, the Coastal Redwood. Snap some photos, or simply wander through the misty paths and marvel at these amazing giants.

Continuing north, you’ll stop for lunch in the historic Sonoma Town Square, or have a picnic lunch among the grape vines! In the afternoon, enjoy wine tasting in the Sonoma Valley Wine Country at a variety of small-to-medium production California wineries.

Itinerary

Morning – Muir Woods National Monument

8:15 – 9:00am: Pick up from San Francisco hotels.

9:00 – 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.

10:30 – 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.

 

Afternoon – Wine Tasting in Sonoma Wine Country

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.

2:30 – 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, Peter Cellars, and Robledo, among others (some tasting fees may apply). On the way back, we’ll also make a stop in Sausalito, so you can take in the charm of the houseboats and catch a view of the city from another angle.

5:00 – 6:30pm: 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. End with a drop-off at your San Francisco hotel in time for dinner!

While we guarantee that we’ll do our best to provide you with all of the highlights within this itinerary (conditions permitting), we do not guarantee them in this specific order. **

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.
