Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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 white bean & vegetable soup, pasta with almond-arugula pesto and grated pecorino romano 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 Cline Cellars and Mayo Family Winery, but locations are subject to change, depending on availability.

I enjoyed the trip. I would advise changing the pick up from the Americania. It is a homeless shelter. The Tour Guide Dustin was great and he took us the GG Bridge. He ran a good schedule.

Our driver was very nice. I wish someone would have called to let us know they were running late picking us up. I don't know why they couldn't pick us up at our hotel because after we picked a bunch of people up, we drove right past our hotel. We booked it because the listing said it would only be sold to 50% capacity. When we first got on, there were only 10 or so people but we watched it fill up slowly, out of 34 seats there were only 6 empty. We told the driver and he said we could get off, but at that point we were already planning on doing that for the day. We would have had to find a way all the way back to our hotel and so we stayed. He did tell the owners but I never heard from them. He was a good driver, I felt safe with his driving and judgement. He made it fun and told us we would have a good time. He played music and chatted with us. The Muir Woods stop is absolutely breathtaking. I enjoyed that hour the most. It was fantastic. It smells, and looks divine. The wineries were ok - they were fun. Not the best wine but everyone was professional, organized and welcoming. If the owners would have split the group into 2 buses, this would have been a 5 star review. It's nice not to have to book appts and get yourself to all these places, especially when you're from out of town and don't know much about the area. I hope none of us get sick from that day.

RED - we are delighted to hear that your tour was enjoyable and very much appreciate your feedback on our safety procedures. We are continually looking for ways to improve and acknowledge that besides "being safe", guests need to feel assured in order to relax and enjoy themselves. We promise in our descriptions that odd groups and singles will have a seat open next to them and on the day of your tour there were several large groups (who were comfortable sitting together). Generally, our buses are running well below their capacities and sorry that the seating arrangements left you feeling uncomfortable. Your suggestion is a good one, so in the future, we will split large groups off into their own private vehicle. Thanks.

The tour was great and I would highly recommend to do it! We were a group of 4 women in our late 20s and we all enjoyed the tour. We had about an hour at Muir Woods to walk through the park before touring 3 different wineries (Kieu Hoang Winery in Napa, Mayo Family in Sonoma, and Muscardini Cellars in Sonoma). We opted to purchase lunch on our own in Sonoma Plaza and there were plenty of restaurants to choose from.

What a fantastic tour!! Kimmy our tour guide and driver was absolutely fantastic. The day is long but you get to see so much and I was so impressed with how it was run and organised. I couldn’t fault it. The three wineries were fantastic and it was a great way to do wine country within a day. I didn’t do the lunch but heard great comments from those that did. The Sonoma stop at lunch was just perfect. An absolute treat of a place. If you’re looking to pack a lot into one day, get looked after and driven around and get some amazing information about the area then this is for you. Thanks for a great day Kimmy :)
