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 minestrone Soup with navy beans and vegetables, pasta with either a beef and pork sauce or arugula-almond pesto sauce 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, Muscardini Cellars and Mayo Family Winery, but locations are subject to change, depending on availability.

Perfect wine country introduction

This is a perfect tour if you want to get an introduction to wine country. It’s worth the extra money to stop at the Muir Woods too as it’s absolutely beautiful. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a taste of wine country but for a reasonable price. Our tour guide Kimmie was the best, It was clear she loved her job and her city. She was also very knowledgeable about the city and wine country. Perfect day trip for couples.

We had so much fun!! Starting off by walking through the Muir Woods was an awesome way to begin our day. Even my 22 and 26 year old children enjoyed it! Each winery had its own personality and the wines were delicious. Lunch in Sonoma was a great way to spend some time away from the city. Ben was a great tour guide. We had a great time.

Our driver Ben was funny, efficient and accommodating. He gave us some historical overviews of the areas, and wineries we visited. We definitely enjoyed lunch at the Red Grape in Sonoma. Also enjoyed stopping under the Golden Gate Bridge to take in the bridge and city vistas.

Lovely day out
Angela_E

Had a lovely day out visiting Muir Woods and the wine tour, Doug was our driver who provided lots of information about San Fran on the drive, he was excellent. The vine yards and wine tasting was great with options to buy wine at the end of each tour. One thing that was not made clear when booking was you have to pay to enter Muir Woods which is $15 each. Most people on our tour all thought this was included when booking but its not.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thanks for letting us know you enjoyed your Muir Woods and wine country tour. Doug will be happy to know that. The park entry is clearly listing in "exclusions" on our website and on Viator's tour page. We'll try to find a way to make it more obvious for the future. Thanks.

My better half and I enjoyed this trip. Certainly beautiful scenery, and the tour guide, Dustin, was most enjoyable. Loved Muir! We were disappointed with the first two wineries, in part because we have gone on tastings before in Napa and Sonoma and enjoyed higher quality wines. However, the wines from Mayo were quite good, and so we bought 3 from there. This tour is certainly best for those who are relatively new to wines and are out for a good time.

Thanks for you commentary on our Muir Woods and wine country tour. Glad you enjoyed Mayo -- a real gem.

Thanks for letting us know you had a great time. Yes, we would like more time in Muir Woods, too. But the NPS limits the time there in order to improve the experience by keeping the crowds down. Still and fantastic day!

Not that great go off on your own and experience Napa and Sonoma in a better way. Ben the worst.
Adithya_G
, May 2022
Well it was pretty average. Not the best wineries in Napa and Sonoma. The last one Trek Winery wasn’t even part of either Napa nor Sonoma. But, I can’t do anything about that. Our tour bus operator Ben was fun and witty but at the end I kinda felt disappointed. He asked for tips which was alright… but I had just a bit of change and I had given to him. He ended up asking for more didn’t open up the door even. Asked my parents for more… which my dad ended up giving. I was the one who showed my parents around and this man asked for more. Utter disgrace in his profession and down the drain for what he had done for the trip.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thank you for calling this matter to our attention. We have review the video recording of the tour and agree that your guide was over the line when asking for a tip. We have addressed the issue with Ben. Please call our office @ 415 357 0700 so we can make things right with you. Other than the end, we hope you enjoyed your day in Napa and Sonoma.

My husband and I had a fantastic time on this trip. It was a perfect balance of exploration and relaxation. Kimmy was an amazing guide. She kept us safe, entertained, and happily full of wine during our trip. She also provided insightful facts and kept things moving smoothly and on schedule without feeling rushed. I would easily recommend this trip AND Kimmy to any of our friends and family visiting the area.

Great tours, but not rational in documented unique circumstances - disappointed.....
Rekha_S

I would have loved this tour if we were able to go but boys ended up getting covid. Very upset that although I called on the morning of the tour as soon as we were informed - the message was not passed on to the appropriate people. Received 3 calls from different people to check in on where we were (it was nice that they were waiting). I would think that given the pandemic and unprecedented times - I would have thought that I would be offered a refund - it is expensive for a family of 5 (~$900) - but I was offered to continue the tour the next day?! How would that be possible and be an ethical decision as a responsible citizen, a parent, and a health care professional?? I truly think Viator tours are the best way to experience the world but given this experience - I am disappointed. I am certain that I would have enjoyed Muir woods with Viator rather than driving the risky roads where my husband had to keep his eyes on the twists and turns, not having the opportunity to enjoy the views.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2022
So sorry to hear you had to deal with illnesses on your vacation. That's a tough one. For you and others who book through a travel agent, you must contact them about a refund. They hold your funds and do not pass them on to the tour operator until weeks after the tour. We will support whatever Viator want to do, so please contact them asap about your situation. I'm sure they will be understanding.
