Explore California's Redwood Forests & the Sonoma Wine Country on this Muir Woods & Wine Day Tour
Price for 1 participant
This full day Redwoods & Wine Country Day Tour begins at 8:00 am as you head north across the Golden Gate Bridge, with its sweeping views of San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz Island, and the city skyline. Seated comfortably in a Biodiesel mini-coach, your driver will chauffer you through the coastal mountains of the Marin Headlands and along the base of Mt. Tamalpais until you reach Muir Woods National Monument and its renowned redwood trees.
The coastal redwood is the tallest tree species in the world, which only thrive in Northern California and Oregon, due to the thick fog that blankets the west coast in the summer months. Muir Woods is the only surviving stand of old-growth redwood forest in the Bay Area today. Once you arrive at Muir Woods, you will have 1 to 1½ hours to wander amongst these magnificent towering giants and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of this living museum.
Next, you will reunite with the rest of the group just before noon and travel to Sonoma Wine Country, where you will spend the afternoon sampling fine Sonoma County wines. You will taste a variety of white, red, and dessert wines at local Sonoma wineries such as Homewood, Cline Cellars, and Benziger Family, among others. During your tour you will stop for lunch at either at a winery or in the historic Sonoma town square, where if time permits you will have a chance to visit 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. On the return journey to San Francisco, you will enjoy views of the beautiful valleys that have supplied the world with fantastic wines for over 60 years.

Although I have lived in the bay area for many years, and even lived in Sonoma for a few year, I still enjoyed the chance to be a tourist in my own back yard. Tasted some nice wines in places I might not have otherwise known about.

The Muir Woods and Sonoma Winery tour was fantastic! Our driver, Mitch, was very entertaining and informative during our drive. He made sure everyone knew eachother and had a good time. The time spent at Muir Woods was perfect and we appreciated seeing some of the smaller wineries in Sonoma that didn't have tasting fees. It was a wonderful day. I would highly recommend this tour to visitors and locals!
