Muir Woods National Monument—home to rare old-growth coast redwoods, world's tallest trees—and Sonoma Wine Country are close enough to San Francisco to visit both in one day.

• Early start beats the crowds at Muir Woods
• Wine tasting (fees included) at three wineries in Napa & Sonoma
Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco• Sparkling wine tasting & winery walking tour
• Scenic Golden Gate Bridge photo stop
Start your day with a drive past the Palace of Fine Arts and through San Francisco's Presidio before crossing the Golden Gate Bridge to the Marin Headlands and on to Muir Woods.
Redwoods in Muir Woods NMEnjoy an hour walking among the Costal Redwood Sequoia — tallest trees in the world. The scent of Bay Laurel fill the air as you cross Redwood Creek on any of three wooden foot bridges.
After leaving the redwoods your travel guide will share the colorful history of California, grape cultivation, the science of wine making and the art of wine tasting on the way to the first winery.
Carneros vineyardsYears of experience and mountains of research have enabled us to choose the best winery stops for each tour from a short list that represents the best that California Wine Country has to offer while controlling costs—which allows us to provide free wine tasting samples at each stop on this tour. We'll strive to cover a range from small and homey to large an grand with an eye for visual appeal, friendly atmosphere, good presentation and good value.
Final arrangements are made the morning of the tour as variables such as private events, number of tours in the field, and the desires of our guests impact the decision of where to go. Partner wineries include Gloria Ferrar Caves & Vineyard, Madonna Estate, Cline Cellars, Roche Winery and many others. Tasting fees are included at each stop.
San Francisco and Golden Gate Bridge from Marin HeadlandsOn the way back, we’ll drive through the little town of Sausalito, home to hundreds of sailboats, floating houses and a beautiful view of the Bay and San Francisco skyline before making a photo stop at the Marin Headlands. You will have an incredible view of the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, Alcatraz, Angel and Treasure Islands, San Francisco Bay and Berkeley in the East Bay.
