Recommended Tours To Get To Muir Woods

Dylan’s Tours has been leading 100% local San Francisco Bus Tours for over a decade, and this is one of our favorite San Francisco day tours (in fact, it’s one of our favorite Bay Area tours)! 

Their most popular bus tour of San Francisco, Dylan’s Famous Tour, covers the most iconic sites of the SF Bay: Golden Gate Bridge, Haight-Ashbury, and the ancient redwood forest at Muir Woods.

You’ll also discover the often overlooked murals of the Mission District, bird’s eye view of the city from Twin Peaks, mansions on Billionaires Row, and lunch across the Golden Gate Bridge in Sausalito.


Biking the bridge is one of those things everyone should try at least once in their lifetime! Biking up Mount Tamalpais from San Francisco to Muir Woods? That’s a totally different story.

While it is *technically* possible to bike to Muir Woods from San Francisco, the road you take will have no bike lane and is filled with cars, SUVs, and 30 foot Muir Woods tour buses taking hairpin turns around the mountain. If your bike does experience a problem, phone service can be spotty as well. On the whole, biking to Muir Woods is NOT recommended.

On the San Francisco to Muir Woods tour, you’ll have a full day of San Francisco sightseeing plus the afternoon to walk among the redwoods at Muir Woods National Monument. Departing daily at 9:30 AM, the tour will take you through the vibrant neighborhoods of San Francisco, to historic landmarks throughout the city and then across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito for a waterfront lunch before heading out to Muir Woods.

You will have over 75-minutes to hike in Muir Woods and wander through the visitor center. Your time in Muir Woods is yours to spend how you choose! Hike one of the best trails in Muir Woods, sit in on a park ranger talk to learn more about the history of Muir Woods and wildlife in the forests or grab a coffee and late afternoon snack at one of the nearby restaurants in Muir Woods.
