What To Expect

Hotel pickup in San Francisco begins with the drive across the Golden Gate Bridge, meaning you’ll reach Muir Woods before many other tours arrive. 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. Then return to the tour vehicle for the drive further north into wine country.

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 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. Enjoy delicious local food paired with a collection of California wines.

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.
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.

Guide took away from experience
Donald_M, Mar 2023
Muir Woods was incredible. The three wineries were fine. Didn’t taste anything worth buying. The whole trip would have been better if the guide didn’t talk about himself constantly. Learned way more about our guide’s life than we did about the locations we traveled to.
Trip to Wine Country
Jennifer_P, Mar 2023
The trip to Napa was beautiful despite the poor weather, a great break from the city. Very knowledgeable tour guide. The weather caused trip to Muir Woods to be cancelled, disappointing but you can’t help the weather. Worst part was AC on bus did not work and the trip up was blazing hot….people were feeling sick. Again not the fault of the driver, things happen. He tried. Better on way back as we left the door open while we were stopped and it finally aired out. Longer lunch in Sonoma would have been nice.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks for joining us on the tour to Muir Woods and the wine country. The rain and humidity pushed the limits of the AC system on the tour vehicle--we agree. Please contact our guest services office about our Satisfaction Guarantee. We will make things right for you. Join us again soon!
james_m, Mar 2023
Doug was great. Tour company was horrible. Trip to muir woods was canceled without us knowing. Bus had heat only which made the drive horrible. Avoid this tour.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
High winds and flooding from the recent "atmospheric river" in Northern California caused the National Park Service to close Muir Woods for several days to clear downed trees and standing water from the trails. We (and other tour operators) were informed of the planned closure at 6:00 PM the evening before your scheduled tour. We sent all guests an email and a text about the situation. James, glad we talked and that you now understand that we tried hard to reach you. If you have time on this visit or another trip, please contact us and we'll get you on a Muir Woods tour--no cost to you.
We had such a great time...
Annie_R, Feb 2023
We had such a great time on the tour! Perfect amount of time in Muir Woods and at the wineries. Makes for a great day trip from SF without any planning. Kimmy gave us great recommendations around the city and made the tour an amazing experience for all of us!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
It is so nice to be able to visit Muir Woods and the Wine Country in the same day. Thanks for joining Kimmy's tour and for the recommendation!

Kimmy was an awesome driver & guide, she made a wonderful trip to Muir Woods and Vineyards even better. We had the best day, tasted so beautiful wines, saw some great redwoods and enjoyed every minute. Definitely recommend
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks for the kind recommendation! Kimmy calls her tour "Kamp Kimmy" and it is a blast. All the best.
Fabulous Tour for a big group!

More wine country than Muir Woods
Ryan_D, Feb 2023
Alberto was a fantastic tour guide. I wish the Muir Woods portion was longer. However if you to focus more on the wine country part then this is the trip for you.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks for your nice words for Alberto. We will let him know you enjoyed his tour. Yes, the tour spends one and a half hours in Muir Woods (the max allowed by the park service) and about five hours in the wine country. Thanks for your review!
Alberto was very friendly...
Christy_B, Feb 2023

Thanks for the review. We'll let Kimmy know you had a great time. Take care!
Magnificent day

Driver/guide Randall was fabulous, giving excellent background info on both history and wine, and Mayo Winery guide Joe hilarious. Muir Woods breathtaking
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thanks for joining our tour to Muir Woods and the wine country. We'll let Mayo know you thought they did a great job. Travel well.
Do it if you cannot drive down
Surga_T, Feb 2023
The trip was ok. The place is super stunning but something about the non stop narration/ the guides chatting with some Canadian folks on the bus didn’t allow for it to be an immersive experience. If you love nature and want to be absorbed in a quiet sort of a drive where you can really enjoy the sites without a constant voice telling you stuff this is not the way to do it. Go with friends on a drive - much better as you don’t need to be always “on”. Randall’s constant plugging of stores was also not cool. Overall recommended if you have no options to drive down by yourself and if you are the kind that loves to chat during nature gigs
Response from Host, Feb 2023
We were disappointed to learn that your experience was not perfect. We aim to send our guest home happy and recharged. If there is anything we can do, please give us a call at (415) 357-0700.
Great tour guide.(Doug)
Daniel_A, Feb 2023
Great tour guide. Doug was very knowledgeable. The bus had some issues that should be worked on. It rained all day so when we would get back in it would fog up all the windows and made it difficult to see. Any sights. This would be a five star review if the bus had no issues.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Thanks for joining the tour. Glad we had a chance to talk about the windows. In a downpour like we had on your wine tour, it is not possible to clear the side windows on any vehicle. If you can return this summer, try us again on our dime!
Great day of wine tasting
Claudia_L, Jan 2023
We had a wonderful day. Doug was super informative in providing facts and history surrounding this tour.

It was a great time! We were able to beat the rain and able to do all aspect of the tour. My favorite part was Muir woods!
Response from Host, Jan 2023
For sure. Muir Woods has the ancient vibe in rain or shine. Good to hear you enjoyed the day. All the best.
Muir Woods was my...
Andrew_D, Dec 2022
Muir Woods was my favorite part of the trip, without a doubt. The scenery was simply enchanting, like a forest straight out of a faery tale! Wine tastings were fun as well, but that first visit to see the redwoods had me stoked already throughout the day.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
This is such a great combo tour -- Muir Woods in the morning and wine tasting in the afternoon. We are glad to hear you enjoyed it. Take care.
Don was great but….
Carrie_s, Dec 2022
The tour guide was great but there were bus air conditioning issues that made the ride uncomfortable all day. He told great stories and provided great tips. One thing I wish I knew was that this is not a 10 hour day, plan for 12-13. I didn’t read that on other reviews but thought a 2.5 hour break from the time we were supposed to be back wound be enough time. It was not.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
We are disappointed to hear that the vehicle air was not right for you, the rainy conditions on your tour day made it challenging to find just the right temperature. Thanks for taking the time to review your tour. Take care.
Gourmet lunch was...

Susan_C, Dec 2022
Dustin was great. Perfect trip and combination of Muir Woods and winery. The wineries were so accommodating and great with history of the wine!
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thanks for taking the time to review your tour. We will pass your nice recommendation and words to Dustin. Enjoy those memories!
