The San Francisco Sightseeing Company
Pier 41 Marine Terminal, Fisherman's Wharf
San Francisco, CA 94105
- $29 (reg. $54) for one ticket on the Muir Woods sightseeing tour
Take off from Pier 41 at either 9:15 a.m. or 2:15 p.m. and sit back while listening to a Bay Area expert’s narration of the city and your upcoming visit to Muir Woods
Exit the bus upon arrival to the woods and explore the area on your own for 90 minutes; admission to the park is included
We recommend the Nature Trail, which empties into a large cathedral-like grove
Get back on the bus for a relaxing ride back to the city; or riders can opt to stop in Sausalito for a visit to the quaint waterfront town (if riders part from the trip in Sausalito, they are responsible for their transportation back to the city; ferry tickets from Sausalito to San Francisco can be purchased in Sausalito but are not included with this package)

Please wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the often cool, damp climate of the forest. Present voucher upon arrival. Tax, if applicable, and gratuity are not included. Please tip on the full value. 24-hour cancellation policy applies; voucher subject to forfeiture. Not valid on Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's Day. There is a minimum of 10 riders for tours to take place (subject to rescheduling if not met). Transportation is included between Muir Woods and San Francisco but if you choose to stop in Sausalito, you must take the ferry back to SF; the price of that ticket is not included with this voucher.
