Description

from Muir Woods and Wine Country Day Tour
The day begins at 8:00 am, heading north across the Golden Gate Bridge, which offers sweeping views of San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz Island, and the city skyline. We wind our way through the coastal mountains of the Marin Headlands and past Mt. Tamalpais (the highest point in the North Bay region) on our way to Muir Woods National Monument.

The coastal redwood is the tallest tree species in the world. These trees only thrive in Northern California and Oregon, due to the thick fog that blankets the west coast in the summer months. In 1908, Senator William Kent and his wife donated their land to the state, and President Theodore Roosevelt designated it as a federally protected area. Muir Woods National Monument is the only surviving stand of old-growth redwood forest in the Bay Area.

You will have 1 - 1 1/2 hours to wander amongst these towering giants. The sights, sounds, and smells of this living museum are sure to reconnect you with a natural world that was almost lost. The group will reunite before noon and travel to wine country, where we will spend the afternoon sampling fine Sonoma County wines. Taste a variety of white, red, and dessert wines at wineries such as Homewood, Larson, Cline Cellars, and Robledo, among others.

Stop for a picnic lunch at a winery, or grab a bite in the historic Sonoma town square. In the town square (time permitting), you will have a chance to see 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.

Traveling through wine country, you will see the beautiful valleys where fantastic wines have been produced since before California was a part of the Union. The landscape of rolling hills laced with rows of grapevines is impressive and provides a romantic backdrop for memorable photographs.

In the early evening, you’ll have a chance to explore beautiful bay-side Sausalito, a quaint and artsy town with *amazing* views of the San Francisco skyline, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Angel Island!

The tour will end with a hotel drop-off at around 6:00 pm.

While we guarantee that we’ll do our best to provide you with all of the highlights within this itinerary (conditions permitting), we do not guarantee them in this specific order. **

We came out and booked the Yosemite, Muir woods and Sonoma/nappa wine tours. Unfortunately due to the government shut down we weren't able to do the Muir woods tour however the other two tours were absolutely wonderful and there is no doubt in my mind that without Molly, our tour guide, we would not have had nearly as wonderful a time as we did. Molly was down to earth, knowledgeable and honest. I'd highly recommend anyone take these tours alone or in a group, the guides will make every effort to keep you part of a the group as a whole.

We went with Ashley to Yosemite and Molly to Napa Valley. Both were lovely, sweet young ladies in their 20s. They were patient, careful drivers and I felt safe with them, despite the large size of buses that they drove. In fact, in Singapore, most bus drivers are men. They did an admirable job getting us around safely! My family of 3 wish them well in their future endeavours.

"Yosemite Valley"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5

We visited San Francisco over the Christmas period and planned to stay one night in Yosemite. Visiting Yosemite was definitely worth it. The scenery is amazing. Unfortunately I can’t say the same about Yosemite lodge or the tour. The lodge computer systems were down and the staff were most unhelpful, in fact rude. We had no joining instructions from Incredible Adventures and given no confirmation of our booking and the government had shut down we decided to travel back to SF that day. The van was full and cramped and the air conditioning did not work correctly neither did the audio system. The driver, Molly, was the also the guide. Good driving on tricky roads but little tour information which was disappointing given we spent 8 hours travelling in the van. Overall - worth visiting Yosemite but adjust your exceptions and don’t expect very much at all from Yosemite Lodge.

Took a quick day trip to Yosemite. It's a 15 hour day. Really wasn't going to because it's a 4.5 hour trip there. We got to spend 3.5 hours on our own hiking, but stopped as a group to look at El Capitan and the Half Dome and Yosemite valley. It's not a great way to see much of the Valley, but if you are in San Francisco without a car and you want to see Yosemite, it is well worth it. Mitch was our guide and he is awesome!

A long day but well well worth it. On time pickup. Clean bus. Small group and Nicole was fantastic with good commentary and bubbly personality. Plenty of time to look around in the valley.
